JERUSALEM – The Egyptian government has information a diplomat at the U.S. embassy in Cairo secretly met yesterday with a senior leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, the nation's major Islamist opposition group, WND has learned.
The topic of the meeting was the future of Egypt following the "fall" of President Hosni Mubarak, an Egyptian intelligence official told WND.
The claim comes amid charges from Cairo that the Obama administration has been encouraging the protests rocking Egypt and targeting the rule of Mubarak, a key U.S. ally in the Middle East.

If this report is true it will most likely lead to a showdown with Israel especially after the Muslim Brotherhood already said there would be war with Israel. While the US should encourage the protests for a free Egyptian people our diplomats should not be looking to strike any deals with a terrorist organization. I guess the complaints by the Isreali government of the President not fully supporting Israel have some merit. If the Muslim Brotherhood has any part in a new Egyptian government the people of Egypt will get alot more than they bargained for...... and not for the better.
