(NEWSER) Mohammed Morsi's government will "reconsider the Camp David Accord," the 1979 treaty declaring peace between Egypt and Israel, the newly-elected president told Iran's state-run Fars News Agency today. Morsi was also quoted as saying that he wanted to build closer ties with Iran to "create a strategic balance" in the Middle East, the Lebanon Daily Star reports. He stressed, however, that he'd work the issues out with his Cabinet. "I will not take any decision on my own."
Morsi is currently working to assemble that Cabinet. The Muslim Brotherhood has reportedly approached secular reformer Mohamed ElBaradei for a senior postperhaps even prime minister, Reuters reports. ElBaradei has not yet responded. Party officials say Morsi is also in talks with the military to restore parliament.
But the Brotherhood is continuing a sit-in to pressure the military to surrender more powers, notes the Daily Star.

Now wouldn't that be a great idea for campaign ads this year!
Take every issues that Obama had to face; and failed in dealing with. Then the tag line would be “then he spent the day golfing”.
I would love to be doing the RNC’s ads this year.
