Muslim Brotherhood Official: Movement Will Honor Israel Peace Accord
Abd Al-Maujood Al-Dardiri, a senior member of the Muslim Brotherhood Freedom and Justice party in Egypt, told a Washington Post reporter on Saturday that his party would not demand a public referendum on Egypt’s peace treaty with Israel.
“Our party will honor all international obligations that Egypt has committed to in the past, including its Camp David obligations,” Al-Dardiri said, according to the Associated Press.
This statement comes as an apparent departure from the Brotherhood’s previous position, as various officials have stated the contrary on multiple occasions. A senior member of the party told the London-based newspaper Asharq Alawsat: “The movement’s position is not to recognize the Zionist entity and not to recognize peace agreements with hostile entities, and this position will never change.”
