Ahmadinejad to follow Obama in Egypt

The Iranian foreign minister Manouchehr Mottaki said on Monday that Mahmoud Ahamdinejad has been invited to attend the summit of the Non-Aligned Movement in Cairo. The Iranian foreign ministry is 'studying' the invitation.

In The Corner, Michael Rubin comments:
This is a big deal as Iran and Egypt have not had diplomatic relations for decades. [I would make that centuries. CiJ]

Obama, young and inexperienced, seeks outreach, rainbows, and unicorns; Mubarak, the crusty old dictator, seeks a bidding war. Someone is going to get eaten alive.
And something tells me it won't be Ahmadinejad.

And to think that just six weeks ago, Egypt was furious with Iran over Hezbullah and Hamas plotting against the Mubarak government.

My enemy's enemy is my friend? Oh, wait. Egypt is supposed to be Israel's friend, isn't it?

Of course not. My guess is Iran will be allowed to attend after it has promised Egypt to cease subverting it. We'll see if there's a deal to that effect down the road.
