Wayne's World

One pundit once quipped that (with apologies to all wonderful mothers-in-law like my own) the definition of ambivalence is the feeling you have when your mother-in-law drives off a cliff in your new Rolls Royce. The turmoil in Egypt should make us feel ambivalent. That the aspirations of a people denied basic freedoms for so long are (hopefully) now being fulfilled, should elate all lovers of democracy. But that the threat to Israel only increases should give us pause. The worry that the Muslim Brotherhood might come to power and abrogate the peace treaty with Israel is real. And the need for Israel to increase its vigilance and military budget to deal with a potential enemy on its flank is likely.

What lies behind you and what lies ahead of you pales in comparison to what lies inside you.
