Many voiced fears that the move foreshadows the Islamisation of Egypt."

Default U.S. walking a tightrope - Panetta visits Egypt

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-19072708

"Of major concern to the US is the Muslim Brotherhood's public hostility to Israel.

The Israeli government is worried that the Islamist group will want to tear up the peace treaty Egypt signed with Israel in 1979, as the first Arab country to do so."

Default Egypt launches Sinai air raids

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-19174773

"This is the first time Egypt has fired missiles in Sinai since the 1973 war with Israel, when it attempted to recapture the Sinai peninsula, security officials told Associated Press.

Egyptian military presence in Sinai is limited and requires Israeli approval under the terms of the 1979 peace treaty between the nations which returned Sinai to Egyptian control."

Default Sinai attack marks step change in border violence

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-19146624

"Sunday night's attack on an Egyptian military post in the Sinai Peninsula marks a step change in the violence that has dogged the area for some time.

Israel is already pointing the finger at jihadist extremists.

But whoever was responsible, their willingness to kill significant numbers of Egyptian personnel, before trying to cross the border into Israel, suggests a dangerous escalation in the lengths such groups are prepared to go to."

"Ever since Israel withdrew from the Gaza Strip in 2005, the Sinai Peninsula has presented growing security challenges to Israel - a process that has accelerated in the wake of the political upheavals in Egypt."

"It is all too easy to see how a successful terror attack into Israel - and any Israeli response - could seriously damage the already fragile relationship between Israel and Egypt."
