Muslim Brotherhood: Israel Peace Deal Isn't Binding

(Ynet News) Roi Kais - Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood will not recognize Israel under any circumstances and might put the peace treaty with the Jewish state up to a referendum, Rashad al-Bayoumi, the movement's second in command, told Al-Hayat on Sunday. The Muslim Brotherhood "did not sign the peace accords," he said. "We are allowed to ask the people or the elected parliament to express their opinion on the treaty....To me, it isn't binding at all." "On no condition will we recognize Israel. It is an enemy entity," he added. "We won't cooperate with Israel in any situation."
