Jimmy Carter: I trust Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood
Jimmy Carter: I trust Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood
In the face of warnings by Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood to tear up the Arab nation’s peace treaty with Israel if U.S. aid is cut, former President Jimmy Carter, the chief negotiator of the 1978 deal, says he trusts the Islamists to do the right thing no matter what. The reason: because they told him so.

In the face of warnings by Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood to tear up the Arab nation’s peace treaty with Israel if U.S. aid is cut, former President Jimmy Carter, the chief negotiator of the 1978 deal, says he trusts the Islamists to do the right thing no matter what. The reason: because they told him so.

In an interview with the nationally-syndicated radio show
America’s Morning News, he also raised concerns about Israel’s threat to attack Iran over nuclear weapons. Asked about the direction of the Israeli government headed by Benjamin Netanyahu, Carter said, “He is much more eager to go to war than President Obama.” Carter praised Obama for trying to pull Netanyahu back.

Carter’s comments about the Muslim Brotherhood appear unrealistically hopeful considering the turmoil in Egypt, where the movement controls parliament, and where there is division over the issue of sustaining the old treaty cut at Camp David, Carter’s biggest achievement.
