Egypt's Salafists: We refuse normalization with Israel

The Egyptian Salafist Al Nour party said Saturday that it would respect the peace treaty but would refuse normalizing ties with the Jewish state after winning nearly a third of the list vote in the country's first and second parliamentary elections.
