The Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act
There is an important piece of legislation working its way through 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
