Treaties are respected for only up to 10 years by Islamists

Reader comment on item: Rethinking the Egypt-Israel "Peace" Treaty
in response to reader comment: Treaty only for 10 years?

Egypt has a secular government. During the time of Mohamed Morsi, the head of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, the treaty with Israel was not being honored. Morsi allowed arms smuggling into Gaza. With El-Sisi in charge, the treaty is being honored once more, and radical mosques have been closed.
