US: Egypt Islamists' impact on Israel peace unclear

Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood probably does not favor its country's peace treaty with Israel, but its views are not uniform and it will be only one voice in Egypt's emerging political lineup, the top US intelligence official told a Senate hearing on Wednesday


"I would assess that they are not in favor of the treaty," Director of National Intelligence James Clapper told the Senate Select Intelligence Committee, adding that the US intelligence community knows very little about the Muslim Brotherhood's views on the Israel peace treaty and Palestinian weapon smuggling into Gaza from Egypt.
