Candidate: I’d support Hamas and Hezbollah if I became president

Presidential candidate Hamdeen Sabbahi has said he would support resistance in Lebanon and Palestine against Israel if he became president. “I will support Hamas and Hezbollah in their endeavor,” he said.

“The fate of the peace treaty will be determined by the Egyptian people and no one else,” he added. “And I oppose exporting gas to Israel.”

At a rally in the Nile Delta city of Mehalla on Monday, Sabbahi also said he would fight poverty and corruption.

He also said that Egyptians are moderate by nature and will resist all forms of religious extremism. “Egypt will remain a civil state,” he said.
