President-elect Trump is not in the White House yet but he’s already MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!
What he promised… he’ll do!
Trump will work to pass legislation designating the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization, said Walid Phares, a foreign policy advisor for the president-elect.
Speaking to the Egyptian news outlet Youm7, Phares said the legislation, which was already approved by the House Judiciary Committee earlier this year and referred to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee was held up due to the Obama administration’s support of the group.
Clarion Project spearheaded a campaign to educate legislators and move the bill forward over the past year. The bill currently has bipartisan support.
“We have to stop pretending that the Brotherhood are not responsible for the terrorism they advocate and finance … We have to see it for what it is: a key international organization dedicated to waging violent jihad” Cruz told the Washington Free Beacon at the time.
THE BILL INCLUDED IS AN UNPRECEDENTED OPPORTUNITY TO EDUCATE MEMBERS OF CONGRESS ABOUT THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD’S INVOLVEMENT IN TERRORISM.
It reviews the Brotherhood’s terrorist history and how it is banned by the governments of Egypt, Russia, the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Syria. Egypt released videos showing the Brotherhood’s involvement in terrorism and the Egyptian government’s website warns about the Brotherhood lobby in the United States.
The U.S. designated the Brotherhood’s Palestinian wing—Hamas— in 1997, but the group a whole is allowed to operate in the U.S.
This will totally upset Obama that invited the Muslim Brotherhood to sit front and center at his address given early in 2009 at Cairo University.
