The New Egypt may not Recognize Israel

Posted by PITHOCRATES - January 7th, 2012

Week in Review

So how’s that democracy thing going over in the Middle East?  All right.  As long as you’re not a Christian.  Or Jew (see Muslim Brotherhood vows not to recognize Israel by JPOST.COM STAFF AND REUTERS posted 1/1/2012 on The Jerusalem Post).

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 published on Sunday.

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%.

Arab Spring.  Israeli winter.  Tomáto.  Tomàto.
