Sinai Former Security Director: Israel Recognized, Ikhwan not
How come does the regime recognize Israel while it doesn’t recognize Ikhwan even as a charity. I wonder why the regime converses with Israel and shuns to converse with Muslim Brotherhood" Is not it strange that the authorities do not detain one that visit the Israeli embassy while they detain one who calls on Dr.

How come does the regime recognize Israel while it doesn’t recognize Ikhwan even as a charity.
I wonder why the regime converses with Israel and shuns to converse with Muslim Brotherhood" Is not it strange that the authorities do not detain one that visit the Israeli embassy while they detain one who calls on Dr.  Habib ? Isn’t it surprising that one who makes friend with or pays a visit to the US or the Israeli ambassador is not detained while one could be detained if he accidentally meets with Dr. Essam el Eryan ? We trade with the Israelis industrially and commercially and vie with them in the QUIZ agreement while we spare no effort to bar an Ikhwan member from being a member in the Chamber of Commerce!
Why does the state not sit and have a talk with this group’s leaderships to draw up the rules for it so that it comes back as was the case in the past, a society with charities, sports, religious, medical and reforming activities in line with the Muslim Youth Society and Christian Youth Society?
  Don’t you think that we now are in bad need of these reform societies now that our country has become a home of based moralities and unemployment? If the state doesn’t want religion based parties ( although Europe has religious parties),  I think that this does not  justify the banning of Muslim Youth Society or Christian Youth society from having members in Parliament, with drawing up demarcation lines barring these societies from transforming into a political entity and that its members in parliament do not represent their  religious societies, given that the Charity Societies Law bans charity members from  practicing  any political activity .
No doubt that if the Ikhwan exists in public in licensed headquarters with rules lay down by the state which puts the society’s members under strict scrutiny (even through eavesdropping means) will be better than the cat and mouse game played by both the state and Ikhwan.
As far I know, the Ikhwan says that it acknowledges the fraternity between Muslims and Copts in Egypt in spite of its slogan Islam is the Solution. 
I equate the attitude of the state to that of a husband whose wife has no longer put up with him after she has known that he has a relationship with another woman.
It is better for this husband to relinquish his relation outside the wedlock and comes back to his wife.
Otherwise, he would rather leave before she divorces or even kills him.
