    The Muslim Brotherhood has evolved since the days of Nasser. Its not the boogeyman you think it is.

    It's rambling to demand a source or some explanation to back up your claim that one country's government wants to destroy another government? Heaven fobid. Sorry Arbo but you aren't ****ing special, you have to back up your statements just like everyone else, you don't get to just say something and have it be true.

    Meh, I'm OK with this. Much of the debt that Egypt owes to the US was incurred under Hosni Mubarak...an unelected leader whom the Egyptian people regard as illegitimate. It seems a bit unfair to hold the Egyptian people responsible for his debt. After all, if a dictator took power in the US, we Americans wouldn't want to be held responsible for his debt.

    Keep an eye out on how they impose sharia law or not, which direction women's rights goes, as well as other actions.

    Egypt and U.S. near deal on debt relief - The Washington Post
    CAIRO — The United States is nearing an agreement with Egypt’s new government to eliminate a significant portion of the $3.2 billion owed by the economically struggling nation, U.S. officials said Monday. The discussions are the first major negotiation between the Obama administration and Egypt’s new democratically elected leaders. U.S. officials have been in Cairo since last week hammering out the details of the debt relief package, which could approach $1 billion, a goal previously announced by the Obama administration. A final announcement is expected this month, according to a U.S. official speaking on the condition of anonymity because the agreement is not finalized.
    I could understand some refinancing, but forgiving their debt is just stupid.

    They may, what you just listed is something very important to look out for. HOWEVER, we're talking about them wanting or plotting to destroy Israel that is entirely off the mark.

    Muslim Brotherhood seeks end to Israel treaty - Washington Times

    A desire to end a peace treaty if Israel doesn't 'improve the lot of the Palestinians'. In the past they have supported Hamas. You can do a little math and see what very well might happen.
