The leader of a Messianic Jewish ministry says Egyptian president Mohammad Morsi is not someone who should be trusted to broker peace in the Middle East.

Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood government have been praised since Egypt brokered a truce last week, ending eight days of heavy fighting. Israel carried out some 1,500 airstrikes against the Gaza Strip during the dispute, while terrorists fired a similar number of rockets into Israel.

Markell, Jan (Olive Tree Ministries)But Jan Markell, founder and director of Olive Tree Ministries, warns that Morsi is not someone who should be trusted as a peace broker.

"Here we have a U.S. administration who had a hand in installing one of the most evil outfits -- the Muslim Brotherhood -- and one of the most evil men -- Morsi -- as the major player in the Middle East. So things could not be worse in that region," she submits.

And Markell points out that Morsi's power grab even has Egyptians taking to the streets.

"Those younger people who were demonstrating supposedly for more freedom from Mubarak, now they're rioting over -- the new standard that their president has," the ministry leader explains. "He's going to be the dictator. He's going to be the new Pharaoh. So this is the way of the Middle East."

Markell is concerned that even moderate Jordan will align with the Muslim Brotherhood's goal of wiping Israel off the face of the earth.
