Egypt: Increasing Number Of Egyptians Want To Ditch Peace Treaty With Israel, Model Its Government After Saudi Arabia

I guess the tombstone of that “dead and buried” peace treaty is preventing the people of Egypt from carrying out one of their greatest collective wishes. Sadly, this thirst may be one of the reasons why the Muslim Brotherhood’s own “[Say Good-Bye To] Freedom and [Anything But] Justice Party” continues to receive the highest support rating from the Egyptian people …

By Patrick Goodenough, CNS News – “(CNSNews.com) – As Egyptians prepare to vote for their first post-Mubarak president next week, the antipathy towards Israel espoused by the frontrunners aligns with the findings of a new survey, in which 61 percent of Egyptian respondents favor abandoning the Egypt-Israel peace treaty, up from 54 percent a year ago.

–Asked whether Egypt’s laws should strictly adhere to the Qur’an, 60 percent said yes while 32 percent said it should follow the values and principles of Islam and only six percent said laws should not be influenced by the teachings of the Qur’an.

— Seventy percent of respondents viewed the Muslim Brotherhood favorably, down from 75 percent in 2011. The Muslim Brotherhood’s political wing, the Freedom and Justice Party, also received the highest support rating among political parties, 56 percent.” Read more.
