Chill alert: Newly elected Egyptian president threatens to take over Israel; Update: Allen West calls on US to cut aid; Update: Correction: Speaker was cleric, not Morsi
That did not take long. As soon as the Muslim Brotherhood candidate was officially pronounced the president of Egypt, he began to boast about how the movement should be located in Jerusalem.

Take a look:
Many are not fooled by the Obama administration’s cataclysmic foreign policy that has allowed such threats to be made without pending consequences from the United States.
Obama helped throw out U.S. ally in Egypt knowing radicals would take over. It happened and they want to now end Israel. Thanks Obama.

So we're sitting back letting Egypt get taken over by a fanatic group who wants to take Jerusalem away from Israel … #obama2012

Obama's friends 'The Muslim Brotherhood' take over in Egypt! Israel had better prepare to ready forces as they are surrounded by enemies!

Meanwhile, Israel says it is seeking cooperation with Egypt and appreciates the democratic process.
Israel appreciates the democratic process in Egypt and respects the results of the presidential elections. 1/3

The speaker in that clip was misidentified as Egypt’s new president, Mohamed Morsi. It was actually a cleric, speaking at a Morsi rally in May. More from Breitbart.com:
Read more at: Middle East Media Research Institute. NOTE: The speaker in this clip was previously misidentified as new Egyptian president Mohammed Morsi. It is actually Egyptian cleric Safwat Higazi, introducing Morsi’s campaign on May 1.
Still, the fears remain.
