    Egyptian Islamists: We'll negotiate with Israel

    The radical Salafi movement's Al-Nour party, which is currently placed second in the Egyptian parliamentary elections behind the Muslim Brotherhood's Freedom and Justice party, has said it would be willing to negotiate with Israel under certain conditions. Salafi movement leaders announced that they plan to respect all treaties that Egypt has signed, including the peace treaty with Israel. Israel's new ambassador in Cairo, Yaakov Amitai, will also attempt to open communication channels with Islamic officials in Egypt, including representatives of the Muslim Brotherhood and the radical Salafi movement's Al-Nour Party.
