A schism has erupted in the right wing of American politics over the issue of the popular uprising in Egypt against Hosni Mubarak. Glenn Beck has unhatched a theory in which the protests culminate in the re-establishment of an Islamic caliphate.
Additionally, they would lead to Russian control of the Netherlands (and Saul Alinsky, the Muslim Brotherhood, Van Jones, Hamas and Code Pink are all part of it). Meanwhile, less religious conservatives such as Michael Rubin of the AEI support the protests in Egypt.
Israel and its fate under a "new" Egypt is the wedge on the right. "Israelis aren´t on board on the democracy game," Rubin said. "They´d much rather rely on aging dictators to keep things quiet." He said Israel is "happy to sell out" Egyptians.
