(BLOG) How Would Mubarak's Successor Affect The IDF?

"Son of Mubarak, Gamal may take control if father falls ill.

The death of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak could have immediate ramifications for the IDF. According to Israeli intelligence assessments, Mubarak’s most likely successor would be his son Gamal, who, while lacking his father’s military experience, is working to mobilize Egypt’s old guard.

Another potential successor is Intelligence Minister Omar Suleiman, a familiar face in Israel and a key mediator in recent years between Jerusalem and Hamas in the Gaza Strip. An opponent to both could be the former director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Mohammed ElBaradei."
