"The Muslim Brotherhood, the overwhelming victor in the first round of elections for the Egyptian Parliament, has announced it will not recognize Israel and intends to bring the Israeli-Egyptian peace treaty to a referendum. ... This position appears to be in stark contrast to the previous reports by Western diplomats, who stated that the movement's leaders had told them the Brotherhood would not endanger Egypt's relationship with Israel."
