Neither do I Carol, I quote from the article:

"Although Morsi resigned from Egyptís Muslim Brotherhood to take the top job, Israel is wary of his election, fearing his Islamist record could jeopardise the chilly peace it has long enjoyed with its huge neighbor. Iranís foreign ministry on Sunday welcomed Morsiís triumph."

Morsi speaks with forked tongue....... there has been no indication that he is a man of his Word. The Muslim Brotherhood's agenda is not one of peace - from past experience. If he were genuine his first job would be to ensure the safety of other religions in Egypt.

it's pretty terrifying - israel has little choice but to make overtures for peace with its non-democratic neighbours, knowing that a new leader will forget what the old one said. oh i forgot, egypt is a democracy now... so they say. i wonder, if egypt reneges on the peace agreement can israel take sinai back? (would they want it?)

The Egyptian military will decide what policy to follow regarding Israel. The Egyptians have been thoroughly defeated in every conflict with Israel and I doubt they are in a hurry to get more of the same.

Stan, first: do Islamists even learn? and second: a war with Israel is a reliable and "Glorious" way to Paradise, with those 72 cuties around. Why not to grab the easy way out at a time when almost all Egypt earns less than $2/day, and will get less as Islamists are not that great in job growth.

Probably not Stan, but a newly elected "leader" may well want to make his mark. If Israel even smells the appearance of Iranian weaponry in Egypt, I suspect Egypt will not be given an opportunity to repent, and this time, I hope Israel keeps the territory they take. Egypt has had its butt handed to it every time it has attacked Israel and it would be even worse now as the Israeli's are far more potent than they were in 1967.

Lets wait see what Israel looks like when they finish the third temple.. ..If you see smoke rising over it .. it won't be in worship to the Lamb.

I fully expected to see this happen and am not surprised. The Egyptian Military still controls the policy making and I don't think they would want to confront the Israeli armed forces yet again and have to retreat with their tails between their legs. Thanks Rob and J for posting the article.

Patricia and Edward you are so right. Morsi's separation from the Brotherhood, in all likely hood is a lie. What economic, or political advantage would he gain to end the peace treaty with Israel?

Peace, everyone claims to want it, but their actions speak louder and to the contrary.

"Did not the messenger of islam both lie and encourage lying ? With someone like this as your role model-- certain questions would be moot."

What blatant racist statements. These are the same people who are calling every other culture uncivilized and barbarians. Outright stereotypical, demonization to paint a whole population with a very broad brush. How about we start applying stereotypes to you people? Well they always say intolerance comes from ignorance. There is certainly plenty here to go around.

Islam is a doctrine, not a race. Islamic PR workers like mixing up wording and bring up the worst accusation for the critique of that doctrine.

There are Moderate Muslims, who take this doctrine with a grain of salt and can separate old bad from modern good, and follow the latest one, like Moderate followers of all other religions do.

No need to go hysterical and to try to scare or to insult the opponent.

And lumping these Moderate Muslims together with Jihadists is an insult to the Moderate Muslims.

a bouqet to you Algernon.. yes indeed.. a doctrine.. from the begining.. a false doctrine..
A bucket of coolaid... an empty well....a hopeless cause ...a blood thirsty deceit.. a counterfeit... a lie.
The "most proud ones' song.. the destroyers' end.
1 John 2: 22/.23...
Who is a liar but he who denies that Jesusis the Christ? he is antichrist who denies the Father and the Son.
23/.Whoever denies the Son does not have the Father either; he who acknowledges the Son has the Father also.
