Hamas: Israel Biggest Loser from Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood Win

(Jerusalem Post) Khaled Abu Toameh - Israel is the biggest loser from the strong showing of the Muslim Brotherhood in the Egyptian parliamentary election, Hamed Bitawi, a top Hamas representative in the West Bank, said on Saturday. Bitawi praised the leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood for saying that they were in favor of reconsidering the peace treaty between Egypt and Israel. "Hamas is a branch of the Muslim Brotherhood and any victory for the Muslim Brotherhood is a victory for Hamas and the Palestinians in Gaza," he said. Fawzi Barhoum, a Hamas spokesman in Gaza, said his movement was also encouraged by the rise of Muslim Brotherhood supporters to power in Tunisia and Morocco.
