Meanwhile the Iranian Mullahs have weighed in with an opinion.
"An Islamic Middle East is taking shape," Ayatollah Ahmad Khatami said in his Friday prayer sermon.
"A new Middle East is emerging based on Islam ... based on religious democracy."
Khatami said the deposed Tunisian president copied the policies of the former Iranian shah and met a similar fate.
"This is God's tradition: Those who fight religion are doomed to fail," he said.
Iran's state TV provided extensive coverage of the violent protests that have engulfed Egypt, saying President Hosni Mubarak won't have a fate better than the shah's.
This needs to be seen in context: he was not speaking to the crowd at the Friday Mosque - this was for international consumption.
And it was felt necessary because the Mullahs are starting to panic.
It's not actually true or theologically sound either. God may well will those who fight religion to win on occasion - in fact it has happened throughout Islamic history. Muslim Spain and the Ottoman empire spring immediately to mind but there are countless other examples.
It's not true either because the 'Islamic Middle East' cited by Khatami is in no way one he would support...he is a Shi'i and there is no way Egypt would turn Shi'i. Nor would he support an Sunni theocracy anymore then he would support Mubarak.
In fact, I don't think it will or should happen. A secular model like Turkey, Jordan or Syria is the way to go. But obviously getting it right.
