The PLO tried to forcibly overthrow every government that hosted them. They tried to do so in Kuwait and got kicked out; they tried to do so in Jordan and got kicked out, they tried to do so in Lebanon and got kicked out.

Why would the Egyptians be nuts enough to take this on, especially with their existing domestic problems with the Muslim brotherhood. There are some questions for which there are no simple answers.
