Egypt can't increase troops in Sinai without Israel accepting, but treaties are subject to change. If Israel wants security in Sinai then they should allow us to increase them. But they don't because they want to make good use of that fact to occupy Sinai in the near future.
Also, as far as I know, if US cuts off aid from Egypt then it's violating the Egypt-Israel peace treaty thus the treaty will be void.
Mercenary, you forgot the wars of 1982, 2000 and 2006. Also, I don't think any nation will easily use nuclear weapons in any war. It's only used when there's a direct threat to the country's existence, as a last resort of protection.
If, this is real deal and not just a trick done by Israel and SCAF to let SCAF stay in power, then I think we should look for good regional friends. Iran is a good example. We also must find other arms suppliers as soon as possible. I don't think Russia will ever say "no" to an increased Russian influence in the middle east.
Also, I really think it'll be more costly for Israel to go into a war with Egypt than just find other gas suppliers. That's still supposing that cancelling the gas deal is not another SCAF trick to stay in power.
For those who don't know, SCAF = Supreme council of armed forces, the current rulers of Egypt.
