    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.
    I seriously doubt that Egypt will end the treaty or stop selling Israel gas.

    They have been working very hard to reign in the renegades in the Sinai.

    You certainly expect the worst. Why is that? Are you in Egypt?

    People have been working very hard to reign in the 'renegades' all over the middle east, for hundreds of years. Hasn't worked well so far. That's perhaps why I expect the worst... history is my teacher.

    Yeah, I'm in Egypt, that's why I put my location as Colorado.

    Arbo-
    besides just spewing your normal BS you hit a new low.

    Since when do you give a crap about the homeless?

    You want us to think if somehow Egypt gave us 1 billion dollars and Obama's administration spent it on the homeless you would applaud?

    A low would be you assuming to know what others give a crap about. Now do you care to comment on the subject matter of the thread, or did you just come in for an off base personal attack?

    Yeah, sure, you can read my mind and thus know exactly what I know about the middle east. Wow, two posters in a row that have psychic abilities.

    Good source. You got me there now I have to back pedal a little bit. Some members of the MB seek to end the peace treaty with Israel but so far Mohammed Morsi does not appear to be one of them, of course its only natural for Israel to keep its eye on the developing situation in Egypt however I'm sure they recognize that all members of the Brotherhood do not think entirely the same as your source demonstrates.

    While its important what the Party of the President thinks, just like how its important what the Dems think because Obama is a Dem, what's ultimately important is what the President does and I don't see any reason or indication that Morsi is seeking a war with Israel or to do anything but maintain the status quo for the most part.

    That may be the case. Or the 'bad' parts of the party may push him otherwise. Only time will tell. But being newly in power, in a country that formerly received funding from the US, the expedient thing to do at first is do and say whatever is needed to keep that cash flow going.

    Re: Egypt and U.S. near deal on debt relief

    I would be extremely surprised if Egypt abrogated the peace treaty with Israel. Also the Washington Post article is from February of 2011 and comes from a member of the Muslim Brotherhood who is not involved in executive governance, and is a minority statement when compared to the forceful rhetoric coming from Mursi and SCAF. Again, I'd be stunned if they managed to gather the legislative and executive muster to abrogate the treaty. Revise it? Quite possibly. Unilaterally revise it? Again possible. But abrogate? I don't think so.

    Unilaterally revise but not rescind? Sounds like a difference without a distinction.
