The United States, perhaps recognizing the political realities of Egypt, is reportedly now formally recognizing the Muslim Brotherhood.
But wait a minute here.
The Muslim Brotherhood does not recognize the state of Israel. Doesn’t the United States have a policy of not talking with those who don’t recognize Israel. Like, for example, Hamas?
What affect will this new relationship, with the brotherhood, have on another relationship? The one with Israel? A nation that’s already more than distrustful of the Obama administration.
