From Israel National News

Deputy leader Rashad Al-Bayumi of Egypt's Muslim brotherhood declared, on Thursday, his movement's intention to cancel Egypt's 1979 peace treaty with Israel. Interviewed by Japan's NHK television, Al-Bayumi said the treaty harms Arab honor and the interests of Egypt and other Arab states. He added that cancellation of the treaty would be one of the demands made of a temporary government after the ouster of President Hosni Mubarak.

Al-Bayumi said the Muslim Brotherhood's hostility toward the United States is based on U.S. support for Israel and Egypt does not need American financial aid.
