A wolf in sheep’s clothing (Christians in Defense of Israel)

“The Muslim Brotherhood is a malevolent force, and American policy needs to reflect this truth,” says Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) who is renewing an effort to protect the U.S. from this Islamic adversary. He told the Washington Free Beacon, “Designating the Muslim Brotherhood as a foreign terrorist organization is overdue.”

The Muslim Brotherhood is one of the oldest and most influential Islamic movements in the world. It positions itself as an “Islamic religious, political, and social movement,” operating in 70 nations.

Its enemies? The United States and Israel.

Its objective? Global rule.

+ + The Muslim Brotherhood’s goal is for Islam to dominate the world. 

Muslim Brotherhood founder Hassan al-Banna declared:

“It is in the nature of Islam to dominate, not to be dominated, to impose its law on all nations and to extend its power to the entire planet.”

The Muslim Brotherhood motto reads, “Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. The Qur’an is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope. Allahu Akbar!”

The New York Times reported, “The Brotherhood calls for a society governed by Islamic law, and some of its former members and offshoots — most notably Hamas, the Palestinian group whose stated goal is the destruction of Israel — have been tied to attacks.”

Muslim Brotherhood Supreme Guide Mahdi Akef praised Osama bin Laden in 2008. Akef called the 9/11 mastermind an Islamic “mujahid” – a term of honor – and said the killer was “close to Allah on high.” 

“The public face of Islam in America is framed by the Muslim Brotherhood,” writes Stephen Coughlin, a former intelligence officer who briefed the Pentagon on Islam and terrorism. 

“Far from ‘moderate,'” Coughlin warns, “the Brotherhood is the most dangerous player in the War on Terror – not least because of its demonstrated ability to penetrate and subvert.”

And one reason the Brotherhood, active in the U.S. since 1963, is so dangerous is that it has gained access to the highest reaches of American power. Its agents and allies were welcomed to the White House during the Clinton, Bush, and Obama presidencies. 

But why hasn’t the U.S. Department of State designated the Muslim Brotherhood a “Foreign Terrorist Organization”?

That is the question Rep. Ron DeSantis (R., Fla.), the House National Security Subcommittee’s chair is asking. And so are we . . . 

Today Christians in Defense of Israel joins with Rep. DeSantis in supporting a new initiative to demand answers from the State Department – and to demand that the Muslim Brotherhood be designated a “Foreign Terrorist Organization” (FTO). Click here to join with us!

+ + Past congressional failures!

In 2015 and again in 2017, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Rep. Diaz-Balart (R-FL) introduced the Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act into both chambers of Congress, urging the Secretary of State to formally designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a Foreign Terrorist Organization.

The bills detailed the Muslim Brotherhood’s involvement in violent terrorist aggression and their links to radical terrorist organizations. But those bipartisan congressional efforts failed during the Obama administration. As Rep. Diaz-Balart then stated:

“The Muslim Brotherhood has a long history of terrorism around the world. The group supports and stands behind numerous terrorist organizations that are responsible for acts of violence and aggression.”

Muslim nations, including Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, and Syria, along with Russia, have already designated the Brotherhood a terrorist organization and banned them from operating in their countries. Other nations are investigating the organization and considering similar action.

Last year, the Trump administration was reportedly considering the “Foreign Terrorist Organization” designation, but no action was taken.

Thank you for your patriotic response,

God bless you. God bless America. God bless Israel.

P.S. Sen. Cruz is outspoken in calling for the FTO designation: “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.”
