-- that -- more of that new video from Egypt as we get back to our top story.
On the bloody crackdown in Egypt at this hour and what it means for Israel we want to look at that angle because Israel is our closest ally in the Middle East.
Israel is keeping a very nervous eye on budgetary and situation.
And it's right on its border.
Now the major concern is that the turmoil in the most populous areas of the country.
Could actually jeopardize the peace treaty that's been between the two countries for such a long time and -- -- two.
Into a conflict once again.
Lisa -- -- is a Middle East journalists and -- Fox News contributor and she's here to shed.
A lot of light on that Lisa thanks for coming in today of the pictures are troubling that a death toll is rising and Israel is watching.
What is it that Israel should do because at this point it seems are taking sit back wait and watch a -- And that's what Israel very often does that Israel is is the duck in the region meaning.
On the surface just calmly waiting -- and seeing what's going on obviously observing gathering the intelligence that they need.
But underneath the surface is obviously I'm becoming very much concerned.
And we have to look back at what the US's role in all of this is why -- we give aid to -- widely respected in Egypt Egypt's over thirty years ago and that would mean -- The peace accord with.
They just support the military to military to have -- secure borders.
To keep at currently al-Qaeda out of the Sinai Peninsula but -- lost leverage to say any of that at this point what President Obama coming out yesterday.
And equating both sides and almost calling the civil war because we're saying.
We condemn violence on this side of that you -- the interim government and the military and we condemn the clouds in the Muslim Brotherhood where things that -- two people won't.
Science in this and that's not -- -- that's we have to allow this government to become stable to get on its feet to that's clear.
Not happening at it is -- and we had.
I understand that aid to Egypt is under review at this point.
The world -- possibly aiding this as it gets so close to Israel's border is finally on how would would inadvertently -- -- really what it depends on how we're defining what this isn't what what's going on on the ground.
Understand that this is not a civil -- this is not.
At peaceful demonstration by some people who wanted their president has been ousted into the insurgency there terrorists on the ground and those -- camp out fallen to two category.
They're terrorists -- won't change the Muslim Brotherhood.
You have propaganda savvy there TV savvy they know exactly -- a -- a lot of depth they know how to get your sits on it is -- -- she's right a lot of people are losing their lives -- -- -- that it may be another Syria.
As it watches and waits.
Had supported the military that's now given an order giving the military the right to shoot.
Anybody that attacks a police officer our governor you know that no one no one wants this to happen interim government doesn't want this Vanilla cake of the market.
None of the leaders in Egypt currently want this but -- police is being shot that.
That churches are being burned down 52 trips to put him back down no one's talking about this.
This is among the bottom of their shooting at civilians at ten year old girl Christian girls walking home from Bible study a couple of few days ago she was shot -- The mother mother had made it clear we're not going down without a fight we're gonna issued innocent civilian -- not armed.
Let -- let you are gonna put his arm to these people are armed with an insurgency each of these pictures that we show is in a different area or region I in the country.
It's not just Cairo it's it's -- that the well grizzlies or hide it.
At this point.
-- -- get dragged into this because it's along the southern border that is.
Imminently close to familiar territory -- these runs silver lining to all of this is that we've seen.
A friendship or some sort collaboration.
On the part of the interim government and Israel in getting these influences.
Out of the country out of the Sinai Peninsula where it would be very dangerous what if the military loses.
The relationship Israel has supported with the military what happens what's going on right now again is not a civil war or the military can lose that they're more -- number.
They're the -- they have the what than they have.
The support hopefully.
Other nations so we're seeing a situation where you know that the saudis are throwing in money the Kuwaiti they're throwing in money and they're all doing with an.
An effort to keep these.
Influence of out of their own country as well -- and that in the US -- to understand the -- going into Egypt.
Well only helping from government -- -- self -- influences and to get back up on its feet.
Improve its economy and hopefully move followed this way this looks to be a long way offensive line played very much for coming and it certainly is a tense situation grows by the hour.
Thank you so my friend.
