Muslim Brotherhood to Renounce Peace Pact With Israel . . . By Referendum


2nd January 2012 - National Review Online

This way, the Brotherhood ensures that Egypt renounces the treaty (a top Brotherhood priority) but can claim that it honored its commitment to “respect the treaty” — a commitment the Obama State Department actually touted as credible. There’s nothing like spring fever.
