#1 Foreign aid won't be coming. The Sauds don't like the MB's brand of creeping Islamic totalitarianism. The Euros are broke. The Russians might, but they have Syria to deal with. So do the Iranians. There's no assets of note there for the Chinese (the Egyptians won't give up any aspect to running the canal). The White House would love to, but there's an election coming up...
