Muslim Brotherhood May Be Ready to Send Egyptian Jihadists into Israel

During Israel's War of Independence, the Muslim Brotherhood invaded Israel with a sizable number of fighters and heavy weapons, but were balked by a handful of farmers fighting to protect their towns. But apparently the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood is discussing doing to Israel what they are already doing to Syria.
If Egypt's ruling party begins moving fighters and weapons, covertly or overtly, to fight Israel, that will kill Camp David for good and revert the situation right back to what it was some forty years ago.
Aboul Fotouh helped found al-Gama'a al-Islamiyya, a vicious Islamist terrorist group, responsible for the Luxor Massacre, among other atrocities. That means his statement can't be dismissed as more hot air from another Egyptian politician. Fotouh is among the more extreme members of the Muslim Brotherhood and has pushed it to take a hard line on a number of areas. Recently he has been drifting closer to the more extreme of the Salafis and has claimed to no longer be with the Brotherhood because they have drifted too far from the teachings of the vicious sociopath, Hasan Al-Banna.
Fotouh has close links to the Muslim Brotherhood's youth wing, but it's unclear whether he is referring to the existing Muslim Brotherhood youth wing or the Current Party splinter youth wing friendly with him.
Fotouh along with his Strong Egypt Party and the youth Egyptian Current Party have already sent a "humanitarian convoy" into Gaza. Elder wonders whether they brought any weapons with them. "The luggage compartment of a tour bus could easily hold several Fajr-5 rockets."
The Current Party however does not seem to have a working site and their Facebook and Twitter pages don't mention Gaza at all.
