No recognition of Israel, says Muslim Brotherhood

Even as the Muslim Brotherhood sends Christmas wishes to Christians, it is the Jews who always bear the brunt of hatred from Arabs and Islam.  As a "moderate" political force in Egypt, the Obama administration is trying to work with them to achieve some kind of peace, yet when the MB tells the world they want the treaty with Israel torn up, one has to wonder; just how blind are those who want peace at any cost?

Muslim Brotherhood vows not to recognize Israel

Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood will not recognize Israel "under any circumstance," the party's deputy leader Dr Rashad Bayoumi told Arabic daily al-Hayat in an interview publish Sunday.

In recent Egyptian elections the party list led by 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%.

65.1% of the votes is a clear majority.  Look for sharia to appear very soon.

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. Its [Israel] 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 cancelling the peace treaty between Egypt and Israel that was signed in 1979. "The Brotherhood respects international conventions, but we will take legal action against the peace treaty with the Zionist entity," he told the paper

At the beginning of December, Egypt's two leading Islamist parties won about two-thirds of votes for party lists in the second round of polling for a parliament that will help draft a new constitution after decades of autocratic rule.

A constitution in word only, not in deed as we know it.
