A day before parliamentary elections in Egypt, the leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, Mohammed Badie, said if his movement wins the election, it will work to sever relations with Israel. "We are certainly not happy with the illegitimate marriage between Cairo and Tel Aviv," he told the London daily Al-Quds al-Arabi on Saturday.

"The regime's leaders are well aware that once we rise to power we will change many things in Egypt's policy, starting with the country's relations with Israel which have caused us great harm."

Badie, who's movement faces slim chances to strengthen in the parliamentary elections, added that, "We will not allow Palestinians to starve while we close the gates on them, and while the Israelis enter Sinai whenever they want."
