Riyadh $hould do more for Egypt!

"... however, Riyadh can do more to help Cairo weather the storm. At the same time, the Obama administration should provide a democratic Egypt a road map toward a free-trade agreement. Not only would such a pact provide economic benefit to (AIPAC/WINEP...) Egypt, it would help to ensure a continued (Israeli) Western orientation of the state.
Despite political and economic uncertainty, Egypt remains a peace partner with Israel and a Sunni bulwark against a predatory Shiite Muslim regime in Tehran. Economic and political risks loom large, but with 83 million people, for Washington, Egypt is too big — and too important — to fail."
