Egypt’s First Foreign Affairs Crises Post Mubarak: Iran, Suez, Syria And Navy Ships?
Written by 

What does Iran have in mind as it has reportedly requested two navy ships to pass through the Suez Canal?  Is this the first possible foreign policy crises for the new Egyption government since the fall of Hosni Mubarak?

According to Marketwatch, the Egyptian government has received a request from Iran to allow two of its navy ships to pass through the Suez Canal, according to media reports Thursday.

"We received a request this afternoon for two Iranian warships to pass through the Suez Canal. We have not yet approved it," Hossam Zaki, a Foreign Ministry spokesman told the Wall Street Journal. The decision to permit passage to the ships will be made by the military which currently runs the country in the wake of President Hosni Mubarak's resignation last week, the reports said.

 Israel has condemned Iran's plan to deploy warships to Syria as a "serious provocation."

Should Egypt allow Iran’s ships to pass through the Suez enroute to Syria?

It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
