The leader of Egypt's largest Islamist party says U.S. threats to cut aid over a spat about nonprofit groups operating in the country are out of line and could imperil the peace deal with Israel. Mohammed Morsi, the leader of the political arm of the Muslim Brotherhood, Freedom and Justice Party, said the hundreds of millions of dollars Egypt gets every year from the U.S. are part of its commitment to the 1979 peace deal with Israel.
