CAIRO, (PIC)-- The Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt has called on the Egyptian foreign ministry to shoulder its responsibilities regarding the Palestinians and open up the Rafah border crossing without hindrance.

The group, a major constituent of the Egyptian revolution, urged Egyptian foreign politicians to lead other Arab states into supporting Palestinian rights, and at least open the Rafah crossing for people and goods.

The statement also downplays the Palestinian Authority's plans to unilaterally push for statehood with the United Nations in September, saying that the UN has used ''double standards'' in dealing with the Palestinians.

The Muslim Brotherhood said that what was required instead was Palestinian reconciliation firstly, and secondly that Arab and Muslim states shoulder responsibilities regarding the Palestinians.
