Strange Bedfellows on Egypt

Does it strike anyone else as odd that Saudi Arabia, Israel and the United Arab Emirates are on the same page about Egypt and America is not? 

I'm thinking it's pretty bloody weird and awful that America is essentially rooting for the Muslim Brotherhood and that the Saudis are with Israel on this one.

Which essentially means that I find myself on the same team as Saudi Arabia and not America.

These are strange, strange times.

You can therefore imagine-that is to say it is not too far of a stretch to imagine that WHEN, and not IF Israel takes out Iran's nukes, that the second most happy country will be Saudi Arabia and that America will fret and fuss and wring hands and fetcheth the weeping schmattah.
