Bill Kristol ‘more optimistic’ on Muslim Brotherhood, Egypt and Gaza

Critics, right and left, have targeted Bill Kristol and his statements on the Middle East.

Now on FOX Kristol made another bold and strong statement on Egypt, the Muslim Brotherhood and the Gaza conflict. This comes as the conflicts continue, protests in Egypt over Morsi’s power “grab” have increased and the tensions are high.

“If, as appears to be the case, the Muslim Brotherhood — which now rules Egypt — [does] not rally to Hamas’ defense, has been willing to broker what looks like will be a cease-fire in Israel’s interest, more than in Hamas’. They would perhaps stop the rockets raining down on Israel. It’s pretty amazing. If you predicted a month ago or three months ago that the Muslim Brotherhood would take over Egypt and has done nothing to help their alleged brothers in Gaza, they withdrew an ambassador and haven’t cut off relations, peace treaty seems secure and talk of Egypt now enforcing the weapons ban, the weapons smuggling into Gaza more than they have in the past. I think that’s the big question. I’m actually a little more optimistic after this week, I mean, you hate to see all the violence, about the future of Egypt than a week or two ago.”
