Mehdi Khalaji of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy writes an interesting piece on the prospects of a Muslim Brotherhood-Iranian alliance. While he admits it is unlikely, history, he attests would prove otherwise. Khalaji concludes:

“While a breakthrough in relations between the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood and Tehran remains unlikely, the consequences for the United States of such a union would be very damaging. Iran remains focused on expanding its influence in the Persian Gulf and beyond, and connections to the strongest opposition party in the Middle East would be a great leap forward. The longstanding and growing ties between Iran and Hamas, as well as a look back at the relevant history, makes clear that U.S. policymakers should monitor this trend.”
