Texas Sen. John Cornyn spoke of his concern Sunday evening that Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood under President Mohammed Morsi is “trying to create a new Islamic dictatorship” in the Middle East.

Cornyn spoke at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee’s 2013 policy conference Sunday and said other lawmakers share his concern about the Muslim Brotherhood dominating Egyptian politics.

The Washington Free Beacon reported that Cornyn also expressed disappointment that the U.S. has not yet delivered fighter jets to Israel.

“I’m so disappointed our delivery of the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter keeps getting delayed,” he said. “The F-35s are remarkable sophisticated aircraft that will dramatically enhance Israel’s security.”

Continuing with his speech about threats from the Middle East, Cornyn said “the ultimate game ender for the Middle East” is a nuclear Iran.

“Our only hope for a peaceful resolution of the Iranian nuclear crisis is to combine crippling sanctions with the credible threat of military action—the key word in that sentence is credible,” Cornyn said.
