The Jewish state faces an ever-increasing threat from Islamist neighbours.
The dictators have fallen one by one. Several more look likely to fall
soon, and few will miss them. But as popular revolutions approach their
demise, something else has come along. In one country after another, the
Muslim Brotherhood — the fundamentalist revolutionary Islamic party
founded in 1920s Egypt — and other Islamist parties have used the ballot
box for their own ends. After decades of repression and opposition,
they have finally come to power. The era of the Islamists has begun, and
as recent events in the Middle East have demonstrated, the world they
create will not only look very different but be far more dangerous for
Israel and beyond.
