#9 Again, as per my earlier Posts this move by Iran is aimed at EGYPT, NOT ISRAEL.

One can prob make a good argument that [Anti-]EGYPT = by extension also infers [Anti-]SAUDI ARABIA.

IRAN-LED RISING-SHIA-ISLAM-VS-SUNNI-ISLAM [Nuclear]for domination of Islam + Muslim World + desired future OWG Caliphate, MORE PKA FUTURE ISLAMIC GLOBAL SUPERPOWER.

RISING CHINA has competition, as per POST-US? SUCCESSION.

#10 Again, as per my earlier Posts this move by Iran is aimed at EGYPT, NOT ISRAEL.

#11 CHINESE MILITARY FORUM > EGYPT NO LONGER COMMITTED TO ALLIANCE WID ISRAEL, i.e. Peace Treaty.

IRAN WARSHIPS IN SUEZ CANAL = Post-MUBARAK EGYPT'S NEW RAPPROCHEMENT WID IRAN???

Shia Iran-Suni Egyptian "DETENTE/PEACEFUL COEXISTENCE"?, versus ABROGATION OF CAMP DAVID ACCORDS + COMMON MILITARY ALLIANCE AGZ ISRAEL [ + US]???

* WAFF > CHINA WEB USERS CALL FOR "JASMINE REVOLUTION". Mass protests in 13 Chin Cities vee Unemployed + other Frustrated/Disgruntled CHinese Workers, Citizens.
