Cancel the Camp David Accords?

Last year, the outbreak of the revolution now known as the "Arab Spring" was much celebrated by the West for it eliminate leaders such a Qadaffi. Even Hosni Mubarak, who took over as Egypt's president after the assassination of Anwar Sadat, was left to the rebels as his human rights abuses had become more than the West could ignore. However, you never know what you may get once the known is thrown out for the unknown"

"Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood will eventually cancel the Camp David Agreement, despite the group’s announcement that it respects international agreements Egypt has signed, said Amin al-Sayed Ibrahim, head of Hezbollah’s political council." Egypt Independent

The Camp David Accords were the result of 18 months of intense diplomatic efforts by Egypt, Israel, and the United States that began after Jimmy Carter became President. Efforts initially focused on a comprehensive resolution of disputes between Israel and the Arab countries, gradually evolved into a search for a bilateral agreement between Israel and Egypt.

The Muslim Brotherhood was formed originally in Egypt but has been outlawed since Sadat's administration. The Muslim Brotherhood has been outlawed in most of the nations that underwent the Arab Spring. The Muslim Brotherhood wants to create a Muslim state meaning Sharia law would replace secular law. The US and Europe seem to be in denial of this potentiality.

In the meantime, Syria has declined Russian mediation in transferring power. Russian warships continue to be on-station off the shores of Syria making any military action by the West unlikely.
