Brotherhood: ObamaŽs Egypt speech a ruse
[Iran Press TV Latest] Egypt's main opposition party the Muslim Brotherhood has accused US President Barack Obama of seeking to divide the Muslim world.
The movement described on Saturday, Obama's plan to deliver a speech to world Muslims from Egypt on June 4, as part of the plot.
Mohamed Habib, the Brotherhood's deputy leader said the Obama administration's conciliatory gestures toward Iran and Syria and the US President's visits to Egypt and Saudi Arabia are a ploy to push through his pro-Israeli agenda.
"The US administration is trying to use each of these countries individually to serve the American agenda and American interests, in addition to securing, promoting, protecting and guaranteeing the superiority of the Zionist entity," Habib told Reuters.
"The statements are rosy, but politics is not built on statements as much as it's based on practices on the ground. Let's wait and see," he added.
