Muslim Brotherhood to Israeli TV: referendum to decide peace treaty

Feb 3, 2011, 19:30 GM

 

Tel Aviv – If the ‘revolution’ to oust Egyptian President  Hosny Mubarak succeeds, Egypt will hold a referendum to decide the  fate of its 1979 peace treaty with Israel, Israel’s Channel 10  television quoted a Muslim Brotherhood official as warning Thursday.

‘Israel has nothing to fear but its own crimes,’ Muslim  Brotherhood spokesman Assam el-Erian told the channel.

But he also gave reassurances that the Brotherhood was a ‘non-  violent’ and not an extremist organization.

Israel is following the unrest in Egypt closely and with concern,  fearing it could jeopardize its 31-year-old peace with the regional  super power to its southern border.

Israeli officials have warned of a scenario in which Muslim  extremists who might decide to discontinue the peace with Israel  could assume power in Egypt.
