CAIRO — The top leader of Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood denounced peace efforts with Israel and urged holy war to liberate Palestinian territories on Thursday — one day after the country’s president, who hails from the movement, mediated a cease-fire between Israelis and Palestinians to end eight days of fierce fighting.
Meanwhile, President Mohammed Morsi issued constitutional amendments granting himself far-reaching powers and ordering the retrial of leaders of the regime of deposed President Hosni Mubarak for the killings of protesters in last year’s uprising.
The Israeli army said that a reserves officer died Thursday of wounds sustained in a rocket attack that occurred hours before the fighting stopped. He was identified as Lt. Boris Yarmulnik, 28. His death raises the toll of Israelis killed by rocket fire from Gaza to six since Nov. 14, two of them soldiers. More than 160 Palestinians were killed.
“The enemy knows nothing but the language of force. Be aware of the game of grand deception with which they depict peace accords,” he said in a statement carried on the group’s website and emailed to reporters.
The Muslim Brotherhood does not recognize Israel, and its members refuse to hold direct talks with Israeli officials. But Mr. Morsi has said that he will abide by the terms of Egypt’s 1979 treaty with Israel, and many members say they are in little hurry to enter into armed conflict with the Jewish state.
Mr. Badei declared that “jihad is obligatory” for Muslims. He also said that taking up arms would be the “last stage,” only after Muslims achieve unity.
In the meantime, he called on Muslims to “back your brothers in Palestine.”
“Supply them with what they need, seek victory for them in all international arenas,” said Mr. Badei, officially known as the General Guide of the Muslim Brotherhood...

From the article - 'Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohammed Badei predicted that Israel will not abide by the cease-fire.
"The enemy knows nothing but the language of force.
"Be aware of the game of grand deception with which they depict peace accords".
Projection. Un caso clinico.
Given that domination and submission is the core paradigm of Islam; given that its 'theology', to call it that, was summed up by one astute 19th century analyst as "a pantheism of force", it is of the Muslims, more so perhaps than any other cultural gestalt on earth, that one may rightly say that they 'know nothing but the language of force'.
And given that Mohammed is firmly believed by Muslim to have said that 'war is deceit', and given the canonical exemplar of the Treaty of Hudaybiyya, and the long, long record of Mohammedan reneging on agreements, treaties and truces made with Infidels, the dismal record of Mohammedan duplicity, ambush, sneak attacks, then it would be proper to warn the Israelis that they should regard the so-called 'peace process', the so-called 'peace accords', and certainly this latest flimsy 'ceasefire', anothing but a 'game of grand deception' practised by the Muslims.
