U.S. lawmakers have introduced a measure calling for the Muslim Brotherhood, one of the oldest Islamist organizations in the Middle East, to be designated a foreign terrorist organization, and for the first time in recent years they are optimistic it will get signed into law.
The Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act, introduced this week by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) and Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart (R-Fla.) in both chambers of Congress, advocates for the designation on the grounds that the Muslim Brotherhood espouses “a violent Islamist ideology with a mission of destroying the West.”
.... Former House speaker and Trump adviser Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) said he thinks that unlike Obama administration, the Trump administration will go ahead and designate the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization, severing all diplomatic interaction and opening up the opportunity to go after people in the United States.
.... The formal label “would put pressure on the groups that have been willing to affiliate with the Brotherhood,” he added, naming CAIR as one such group. “It would certainly put them on the defense psychologically.
[TOP RATED COMMENT] Islam never admits its brutal past and present. Always good at blaming others and play the victim. Quran teaches arrogance that not to admit crime and genocide committed by the name of Allah.
Mohammed was also a warlord and Muslims love to glorify Mohammed's disgrace life. Most civilized countries admit darkness from the past and moving forward but it is forbidden for Islam to admit its brutal and barbaric past.
[ANOTHER] Yes it is terrorist and even declared so by Arab Emirates, Saudi, Bahrain, Syria, Russia, Egypt. It is known terrorist underground and is a danger to USA and Canada with its nice/guy BS. Their pledge is "Allah is the objective, the Qur'an is the constitution, the Profit is the leader, Jihad is the Way, death for the sake of Allah is our wish."
It was put together by Banna 1928 in Egypt where most MB are, though today QATAR is a big producer, supporter and many moved into Syria to fight after Morsi was kicked out for his ideology and support of their crimes. (alsoTurkey, Jordan, Malaysia) USA has become so naive, so ignorant, I do not understand it Especially since I am on the Left and not religious.
I am open minded and since I did not know much about Islam at all, in 2008 I decided to find out all I could about it and how its people really thought, felt, what various sermons preached in US and in Middle East.
I have found out much, talked to many and I can say with conviction that it does not belong here and will be corrosive & MB is definitely terrorist and Also will work to change by politics, thinking Democracy means Mob Rule. I think Cruz is a nut case but on this he is Correct and should be supported for our Countries sake. [The Washington Post] Read more
