An Israeli source said that Netanyahu asked US president Barack Obama to intervene personally to pressure Morsi to answer his phone calls and to ensure that Egypt still respects its agreements with Israel, especially the Camp David treaty.
The source added that Morsi reassured Obama that Egypt is still committed to its agreements, but he insisted on not talking to Netanyahu. For its part, the Muslim Brotherhood group in Egypt declared that the arrival of its presidential candidate Mohamed Morsi to power would not change anything of its principles regarding the recognition of Israel and its support for the Palestinian resistance.
"The Muslim Brotherhood's position is fixed and unchanged. We do not and will not recognize Israel," spokesman for the Islamist group Mahmoud Ghazlan told Quds Press.
