This agreement was the first sign of peace and stability between Israel and its Arab neighbors - a proof to most in Israel that perhaps they need not 'fight for their lives' for eternity. If this agreement fails the possibility for ANY future Israeli-Arab peace (or concessions to the Palestinians) would be minuscule.
The peace agreement means something as long as the Egyptian leadership can control and oppress it's people with help from Washington. Egyptian people never mandated the agreement.

I like how you define peace and stability...80 million Egyptians under brutal dictatorship.
