(Tea Party 247) – One of the most controversial organizations on the planet is without a doubt the Muslim Brotherhood, a group that any sane individual would be able to clearly see is a terrorist group or at the very least has some sort of ties to groups that carry out these sort of deplorable actions and holds to similar ideology.
However, many folks in our own government, including the former administration, were keen allies of these folks, despite the mountains of evidence that suggested these were bad, bad people. Unfortunately, the Muslim Brotherhood has many apologists spread throughout the world and in places like the mainstream media to try and cover their tracks and prevent people from finding out the truth.
Well, the following videos featuring folks who are part of the Muslim Brotherhood are revealing the truth to the masses for those willing to take the time to examine them.
DC Clothesline has the latest:
Islamic scholar and author Robert Spencer introduces the video by stating, “Ami Horowitz interviews Muslim Brotherhood operatives in the United States and elsewhere, and they are surprisingly candid with him, exploding thers like fore narrative of the establishment media and Islamic advocacy groups in the U.S., who claim that the Brotherhood has no presence here and is benign anyway.”
Back in May, the Heritage Foundation, a conservative leaning think tank released a report asking the question as to whether or not the Muslim Brotherhood should be labeled a terrorist organization.
Here’s what they had to say:
Founded in Egypt in 1928, the Brotherhood has done more than most to disseminate Islamist ideology. The group’s founder, Hassan al-Banna, believed that an Islamic caliphate had to be restored and an unpolluted version of Sharia law implemented if Islam was to be revived in the face of Western secularism.
The Brotherhood would eventually grow into a religious and political network spanning the globe.
While it has taken a more ambiguous approach to violence in recent years, the Brotherhood does have historic ties to violent activity. Sayyid Qutb, a key Brotherhood theorist, helped mainstream the notion that jihad could be weaponized in order to overturn governments.
Suspected offshoots of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood were assessed by the State Department to be “Specially Designated Global Terrorists” in January 2018, and the proscribed Palestinian terrorist group, Hamas, states in its charter that it is “one of the wings of the Muslim Brothers in Palestine.”
On an ideological level, then, this is a straightforward situation. The Brotherhood is an adversary, not an ally, and the U.S. must treat it as such. Yet on a political level, things get more complicated.
Labeling the group a terrorist organization would be a tricky needle to thread. For starters, here in the U.S., the government has, unfortunately, chosen to engage with Muslim Brotherhood legacy groups like the Council on American-Islamic Relations. Even the Trump administration has done so.
Overseas, the U.S. is forced to engage Muslim Brotherhood-linked groups because they are part of various governments. Labeling the group a terrorist organization could, for instance, end up including President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s Justice and Development Party in Turkey, Ennahda in Tunisia, parts of the Kuwaiti National Assembly, and the ruling Justice and Development Party in Morocco.
What the U.S. really needs to do here is just follow the law of the land. If there is evidence in existence that the Muslim Brotherhood and it’s subsequent groups are involved in terrorist activity, then we can legally designate them a terror group and should do.
Our country should probably also probably stop working with these groups in any capacity and let them see that we will not, under any circumstances, partner with groups who are involved in terrorist activity. Otherwise, our involvement with these groups lends them a credible voice on the world stage, which is exactly what they want.
