Israel is constantly being attacked by Hamas firing missiles at innocent civilians. For the last week this has intensified greatly. Hundreds of rockets are being shot at Israel daily.
Israel has the right to defend it's citizens with military action.
Egypt, under it's new government led by the President Mohammed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood has announced that such Israeli action, would prompt “swift Arab and international action to stop the massacres." and that that Israel “must take into account the changes in the Arab region and especially Egypt … [Egypt] will not allow the Palestinians to be subjected to Israeli aggression, as in the past.”
Israel needs to know that the United States and President Obama support it's right to defend their citizens and that any involvement from Egypt or other Arab countries would bare consequences.
