Muslim Brotherhood Vows Not To Recognize Israel And To Cancel Peace TreatyTopics: Egypt, Political News and commentaries, Understanding Islam
Back in June 2011, the Obama administration gave legitimacy and credibility to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt (after secretly crafting a plan months before for Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak to leave office) by announcing that it recognized the group, a move that has now proven to have only served to advance the Muslim Brotherhood while making America look weak and emboldening the enemy of our only true ally in the Middle East.
Now, the Obama-endorsed Muslim Brotherhood's Egyptian party' deputy leader is saying that the group will not only refuse to recognize Israel, but it will not negotiate with Israel, and will seek to cancel Egypt's peace treaty with Israel. The move should come to no one's surprise (except the clueless Obama administration), given that the group's motto makes its intentions rather clear: "Allah is our objective, the profit is our leader, the Koran is our law, Jihad is our way, and dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope."
The Jerusalem Post reports:
... In recent Egyptian elections the Brotherhood's Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) won 36.3 percent of the list vote, while the ultra-conservative Salafi al-Nour Party took 28.8%.With the Islamists now in a two-thirds majority, there should be little doubt that the Brotherhood's position on Israel will prevail, and that the consequences of the Obama administration's disastrous foreign policy is nothing less than an increase in tensions and a greater likelihood of war in the ME ... with our only true ally in the region being the Islamists target.
When asked whether it is a requirement for the government in Egypt to recognize Israel, Bayoumi responded by saying: "This is not an option, whatever the circumstances, we do not recognize Israel at all. It's an occupying criminal enemy."
The deputy leader stressed during the interview that no Muslim Brotherhood members would ever meet with Israelis for negotiations."I will not allow myself to sit down with criminals."
Bayoumi went on to say that the Muslim Brotherhood would take legal procedures towards canceling the peace treaty between Egypt and Israel that was signed in 1979.
