First of all, I want to make this unambiguously clear; First of all, I want to make this unambiguously clear;I don’t like the policies of the Brotherhood,  looking at the practical side of it –They are the elected representatives of the
people, and if the President Obama rejects them, he will be emboldening them and
getting them to dig in their heels – that would be disastrous
We have done that with Hamas, and we should not repeat it with
If you work with people, even the rogue elements, I am not
saying they are rogues, we have a chance of turning things around that are good
for all the parties…. If we reject them, we don’t have a prayer.
It is in our interests, the interests of the Egyptians
people and certainly in the interests of Israel’s security, we have to make
this work.
Remember the Peace deal was between the people of Egypt and
Israel and we cannot afford to piss off the Egyptian people. The deal was not between Mubarak and Netanyahu, Mr.
Netanyahu made a major mistake by telling the US to support Mubarak – his
intelligence was wrong, so was ours. I am glad the Egyptians are not going to
hold it against him or the Israelis. 
That was the dumbest move by Prime Minister Netanyahu.
Relationship is with nations and not individuals,
individuals do drive the accords, but if they do not represent the will of the
people, their words are as good as the dust.

Brotherhood has proposed an alternate Candidate Mohammad Moris – it is a good news, it shows that  the democracy has meaning and there is a
process in place– the possibility of disqualifying the primary nominee
El-Shater or the others; Sulaiman or Amr Mousa.

Mr. Horowitz called Obama a liar – I jumped on him, Obama is not a liar, he is sharing what he reviews. Calling Mubarak to go was the right
thing. “The people on the other side call you a liar Mr. Horowitz, are you?
We need to tie the $1.5 Billion aid to Egypt to maintain peace
and prosperity.
Mr. Horowitz said that the brotherhood charter calls for
destruction of Israel – I told him that I have not read it, if it is fact, then
it needs to be condemned.
They said, the first act of Brotherhood was to declare
Israel as enemy, I need to verify that, but if they did, I condemn it,
otherwise it is the not the truth.
I asked Hannity, what are the choices we have? Let the
brotherhood do what they want, or work with us? He said, shall we say, please
please be friends with Israel – I said, no, “this financial aid is for maintaining peace
in the region, and we need you to work on that. No preconditions.”

Horowitz was jumping form topic to topic – claiming that 80%
of females are mutilated genitally – wanted to ask him, if brother hood issues
that order, or if it was his assumption and how is this connected with the topic of $1.5 billion aid?

President Obama is right in taking a cautious approach, we have a choice to
mess up the situation or make it better. Rejecting brotherhood amounts to
telling them stick with their position, working with them is
acknowledging who they are and asking them to be with us and respect the peace
treaties. Peace comes through dialogue.
