Israel-Muslim Brotherhood relations: "Just fine!"

"...The Muslim Brotherhood, by definition, will never be able to shake a Zionist’s hand. What Brotherhood members yearn for, by religious law — and have since their inception — is an Islamic caliphate. However, since they also need to earn a living, support a country with 85 million mouths to feed, impose control over the Sinai and maneuver in an impossible situation, they play tag. The relationship with the Zionist entity only plays out with a very long stick, namely the army, and this way they can reap the benefit of the relationship but remain clean. Bottom line: As far as Israel is concerned, that’s just fine. ..."
