Although the Muslim Brotherhood has not changed its hostile position toward
Israel, it has sent mixed messages since rising to power in Egypt.On one
hand, the political leaders, such as President Mohamed Morsi, speak of the
country’s intentions to abide by its international treaties. On the other hand,
these leaders emphasize that they will do so only when the treaties serve
Egypt’s national interests. They argue that Cairo’s treaty with Israel harms the
Egyptian national interest and intend to bring it to a national referendum, with
the ultimate intention of abrogating the treaty.
