Egypt seeks 'relationship' with Hezbullah

Change is coming to Egypt. With billions of dollars in US aid and some of the most sophisticated US weapons on the planet, Egypt has decided that it is seeking a 'relationship' with Hezbullah.
In a dramatic policy shift, Egypt will seek to forge "tight" relations with Hezbollah, Egyptian Ambassador to Lebanon Ashraf Hamdy revealed in a candid interview published Saturday in Lebanon's Daily Star.
“You cannot discuss politics in Lebanon without having a relationship with Hezbollah," Hamdy was quoting as saying, before describing the terror group as a "real force on the ground" with "big political and military influence."
In this respect, Hamdy announced that Muslim-Brotherhood-dominated Egypt would begin “stretching [its] hand out in the proper, balanced way to all regional powers," including Hezbollah, in order to forge "tight" contacts with Lebanon's rulers.

...

In his interview, Hamdy denied reports that Hezbollah had sent a delegation to Egypt to meet with President Mohamed Morsi's regime, but confirmed that he personally had met with members of Hezbollah’s political bureau in efforts “to understand each other better.”
“In discussions we said we want Hezbollah to remain as a political force in Lebanon,” Hamdy revealed.
"Resistance in the sense of defending Lebanese territory...[is] their primary role. We...think that as a resistance movement they have done a good job to keep on defending Lebanese territory and trying to regain land occupied by Israel is legal and legitimate,” he continued.
Will the US threaten to cut aid money to Egypt if they establish a relationship with Hezbullah? With Obama and Kerry in charge, don't hold your breath.

What could go wrong?

They might 'donate' even more money and weapons.

Morsy has determined there's no way to prevent his country from imploding economically so he's decided to go the route of terrorism enabler. It's an old story in the Muslim world. Egypt will be a failed state soon and it will resemble all the other failed African state disasters. Expect famine, foot riots, a slow disintegration of civic order - precisely what the Muslim Brotherhood wants. Why? It's cover for them to out Taliban the Taliban.
