Republicans in Congress Push to Designate the Muslim Brotherhood a Terrorist Organization!

Written by Gary Fouse

There is an important piece of legislation working its way through the House of Representatives and the Senate that would designate the Muslim Brotherhood as meeting the criteria of a foreign terrorist organization.  The Clarion Project has the details. That then puts the ball in the lap of the State Department.

Perhaps just as importantly, the legislation would specifically identify the Council on American Islamic Relations  (CAIR), the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT) as MB-affiliated entities (which they are).

Not surprisingly, though there is a Democrat co-sponsor, it is the Republican Party that supports this legislation while the Democrats are either opposed or have not committed themselves one way or the other. A list of supporters/opponents/uncommitted is in the link.

There is ample evidence to support the charge that these three organizations are connected to the Muslim Brotherhood. NAIT actually holds the deeds on most of the mosques in this country.

It is important that we follow the progress of this bill and urge our elected leaders to support it

From the Clarion Project:

muslim brotherhoodIf passed, the legislation would state that Congress believes that the Muslim Brotherhood meets the criteria of a Foreign Terrorist Organization under section 219 of the Immigration and Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. 1189).

It gives the Secretary of State 60 days to provide a detailed report explaining whether the Brotherhood meets the standard for Foreign Terrorist Organization designation and why. The legislation contains a mountain of evidence in support of this designation.

The legislation also explicitly identifies the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT) as U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entities and includes evidence tying them to a Hamas support network.

Meanwhile the folks at the Muslim Brotherhood’s American mouthpiece, CAIR, are attempting to convince Americans that Islamic terrorism doesn’t exist in America!

Sadly, we know that just isn’t true.

Call your congressman and tell them to support this important legislation as it makes its way through Congress. By the way, you can see the full list of Congressmen supporting the bill here.
