This really should come as no surprise. The Muslim Brotherhood, fueled by radical Islamists who continue to tighten their grip on Egypt's new government, says it will not recognize Israel "under any circumstances." In fact, this political group with a global terrorist footprint goes even further calling Israel an "occupying criminal enemy." 

What's more, according to the report, is that the Muslim Brotherhood says it will begin legal action aimed at canceling the peace treaty between Egypt and Israel that was signed in 1979. "The Brotherhood respects international conventions, but we will take legal action against the peace treaty with the Zionist entity," the Brotherhood's deputy leader told a reporter. 

And in the past couple of weeks, the leader of Hamas travelled to Cairo to meet with top leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood. Ismail Haniyeh, the leader of Hamas, said his visit to Egypt was designed to confuse and frighten Israel. "Our presence with the Brotherhood threatens the Israeli entity," he told Egypt's state news agency.

Add to that, the continuing concern over Iran's push to develop nuclear weapons that would reach Israel.

All of this is a recipe for new danger and uncertainty in the Middle East. No nation knows that better than Israel, our most important ally.

Just a few months ago, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu expressed his growing concern about radical Islamic terrorism. "This struggle is not over," he said. "We are still in the thick of it. It is clear that it will be indescribably huge if the radical Islamic forces or regimes acquire the ultimate weapon - weapons of mass-destruction - and the terrorists will stand together and will be able to operate under the nuclear umbrella of a radical regime, or even with tools for mass-destruction that they will acquire."

A warning that could not be more appropriate as 2012 unfolds.
