Ghozlan: Mubarak’s Regime Stood in the Way of Shalit’s Swap
Dr. Mahmoud Ghozlan, media spokesperson for the Muslim Brotherhood (MB), welcomed the recent deal between Hamas and Israel to exchange Palestinian prisoners with Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit.
Ghozlan stated to Ikhwanweb that many Palestinian hostages still remain in Israeli jails, and the deal made comes after five years of negotiations with Israel and in the wake of many sacrifices including Palestinian lives. He hoped that prominent Palestinian prisoner Marwan Barghoty would be among the prisoners to be freed, hoping that all in custody would be released.
"Such deals failed to see the light during the Mubarak era where Mubarak was known for his favoritism towards the Israelis. Following the revolution, Egypt has changed completely and will work towards the good of all," Ghozlan said.
