The week that changed the Arab World forever

History is being written in the streets of the Arab world this week. What implications will it have for the wider world?

What if the Muslim Brotherhood seized power in Egypt? What would that mean for Israel and Gaza? What would it mean for the passage of western shipping transiting the Suez. Would the US and Western European Navies be still allowed to pass freely? Could we see another Suez Crisis, and if so what would that mean for the price of oil & gold? Only time will tell, these are certainly interesting times.
