Spokesman Mohamed Morsy of Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood said Thursday evening that "Israel has not respected" the peace agreement with Egypt. Asked by the Cable News Network if the movement would honor the pact if it took power, Morsy said that parliament would discuss the matter. Earlier a senior Muslim Brotherhood leader said the Brotherhood would move for cancellation of the treaty.
Morsy said, "We are not against the Jew. We are against Zionism." He said the movement is not connected to terror but made it clear that resistance by Land of Israel Arabs "is acceptable."
