The big question is why didn’t Obama designate them a terrorist organization? Better yet, why did Obama invite the Muslim Brotherhood to the White House multiple times?
And why did Obama use the Muslim Brotherhood to give weapons and money to rebel forces first against Qaddafi and then against Assad?
Almost every Islamic terror group we know of came from the Muslim Brotherhood.
(As reported by: US Herald)
The mission statement of the Muslim Brotherhood is clear and unambiguous.
“Allah is our objective; the Qur’an is the Constitution; the Prophet is our leader; jihad is our way; death for the sake of Allah is our wish.”
Its motto is even more succinct.
“Islam is the Solution.”
Banned in Russia, declared a terrorist organization in Syria, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates and accused by the U.K government of being sympathetic to terrorists and a risk to British national security, it’s hard to imagine a group like that could be viewed as a ‘friend,’ but for eight years, the Muslim Brotherhood enjoyed cozier relations with the Obama administration, including invitations to the White House.
Now, according to the New York Times, the Trump White House is close to announcing the designation of the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist group, which would also serve to halt funding to it and its related groups within the U.S.
The Times is reporting that although the administration was ready to make the official announcement, internal debate between some National Security Council members and career State Department staff are hesitant to take the step that would group the Muslim Brotherhood with more overtly violent Islamic groups such as, ISIS, al-Qaeda, Boko Haram and Hamas.
If the Trump administration does, in fact, name the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization, it will find support in Congress as Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Florida Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart re-introduced bills last month taking the same step, which died in committee when first introduced two years ago.
“I am proud to reintroduce these bills that would codify needed reforms in America’s war against radical Islamic terrorism,” said Cruz. “This potent threat to our civilization has intensified under the Obama administration due to the willful blindness of politically-correct policies that hamper our safety and security.”
As if more evidence were needed to prove the existence of a radical Islamic war against the West – and specifically the United States, the words of the Muslim Brotherhood’s founder, Hassan al-Banna, make its intent crystal clear.
“Jihad means the fighting of the unbelievers, and involves all possible efforts that are necessary to dismantle the power of the enemies of Islam including beating them, plundering their wealth, destroying their places of worship and smashing their idols.”
Within the Cruz- Diaz-Balart legislation is another al-Banna quote that validates a White House designation of the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist group.
“It is the nature of Islam to dominate, not to be dominated. The mission of Islam, as interpreted and executed by the Muslim Brotherhood, must be to impose [Islamic] law on nations and to extend its power to the entire planet.”
It is difficult to understand how the previous administration failed to read that statement and come to the conclusion that the group is a direct threat to the lives and wellbeing of 300 million Americans.
Those days are over.
