Egyptian Officials: First the Muslim Brotherhood, then Hamas

Now that it has taken care of the Muslim Brotherhood at home, Egypt's military rulers plan to take on the Hamas terror group which runs neighboring Gaza, senior Egyptian security officials told Reuters on Tuesday.

According to the officials, the idea includes working with Hamas's political rival Fatah and supporting popular anti-Hamas activities in Gaza. The officials who spoke to Reuters said this could take years to pull off.
