Egypt and Israel Back Away From Diplomatic Crisis

As many as three Egyptian security officers may have been killed by Israeli warplanes. The incident follows exchanges of fire in the Gaza strip. Egypt and Israel maintained peace between their countries as a result of Anwar Sadat and the Hosni Mubarak who took over following the former's assassination. Just because Mubarak got along with Israel did not reflect his domestic policies. Mubarak was forced out and now facing charges. The Egyptian movement that forced out Mubarak wants to change all of his policies including his stance with Israel. The situation escalating and along with the potential fall of Gaddafi could become a flashpoint for even more violence.
