I know I know – a short rest from writing! All of 3 days.
In the future, if I feel that I need a rest – I will take one without an announcement.
When I saw this headline from Bloomberg.com, I knew that I had to cover this topic.
During the 2016 primaries, one of Trump’s most important promises was to outlaw the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) in America. This was of vital importance, mostly due to the close association between Obama and the MB. Also, this terrorist organization uses taqiyya every time they open their mouths.
If you go to their website, these terrorists present themselves as “Peace loving Muslims.” If you believe that then I do have some oceanfront property to sell you in Arizona!
Obama and the Arab Spring
The so-called “Arab Spring” which was orchestrated by Obama and Clinton, was funded by George Soros. Obama (being a Muslim himself) was determined to topple secular governments in the Middle East and replace them with Radical Muslim Sharia governments.
Do you remember when the people were crowding the streets of Egypt and demanding that Mubarak leave his position at once? I remember it clearly. I also remember that the head of MB at that time, Mohammed Morsi, declared to the world that he had no intentions to run for the presidency if Mubarak left. I knew that was a lie as soon as I heard it.
Obama went on national TV telling Mubarak “It’s time for you to go!” And Mubarak did finally flee Egypt. And who do you think entered the race to replace him? Yes – Mohammed Morsi – and he won!
But he was not in power even 2 years before the military ousted and incarcerated him. El-Sisi – the Commanding Officer of Egypt’s military, stepped into the post of President of Egypt and has been there ever since.
The Muslim Brotherhood was outlawed in Egypt and hundreds remain in prison with their leader Morsi to this day.
An article I wrote in 2015 about the Arab Spring:
Islamic or Islamist? What is the difference? Watch this video:
Time for a US Ban on the Muslim Brotherhood, but Why?
A lot of people in the United States are talking about banning the Muslim Brotherhood, one of the world’s largest Islamist organizations. The movement has many detractors and supporters, and it can be difficult to know what’s really going on.
So who is the Muslim Brotherhood? What do its members really believe and why might they be a big enough threat to ban? And, how does that impact me?
What is the Muslim Brotherhood?
The Muslim Brotherhood is an international movement originally founded in Egypt with branches all over the world, including in the United States. Although it is not a single monolithic movement, the disparate factions share the same foundational ideology. The group does not represent all or even most Muslims (despite claiming to) and is fundamentally a political rather than a religious movement.
What does the Muslim Brotherhood Believe?
The British Government review of the Muslim Brotherhood’s activities in 2015 found:
“The founder and first Supreme Guide (spiritual leader), Hassan al Banna, called for the religious reformation of individual Muslims, the progressive moral purification of Muslim societies and their eventual political unification in a Caliphate under sharia law.”
According to the founding bylaws of the Muslim Brotherhood, the group aims to liberate Islamic countries from foreign rule, an understandable goal in 1928 when the group was founded and when Britain was ruling Egypt. However it does not stop there, the group’s official aim is to unite all Muslim countries, re-establish a caliphate and to implement sharia as a system of government. source
During the reign of Obama, he placed numerous Islamists into key positions in DHS and in our State Department. Many Conservatives were unaware of these treasonous actions by Obama – but they were happening.
Today, an article came out on bloomberg.com which made me very excited. It seems that our president is finally seeing clearly what the Muslim Brotherhood is about, and how dangerous this Islamist organization is to America.
Trump Prepares to Designate Muslim Brotherhood as Terrorists
The White House is preparing to designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a foreign terrorist organization, a move that would impose economic and travel sanctions against the group.
“The president has consulted with his national security team and leaders in the region who share his concern, and this designation is working its way through the internal process,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in an emailed statement on Tuesday.
Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi requested the U.S. make the designation during a meeting with Trump earlier this month, according to the New York Times, which first reported the effort. The Muslim Brotherhood won elections in Egypt after the Arab Spring uprising, but was ousted in 2013. Under Sisi, Egyptian forces killed hundreds of Brotherhood supporters and detained thousands more.
Organizations must be foreign and engage in terrorist activity that threatens the security of U.S. nationals or the defense, foreign relations, or economic interests of the country to earn the designation.
But the Muslim Brotherhood movement, which has independently operating chapters in different countries and was founded in 1928, could prove difficult to categorize. The group has a broad following in nations with large Muslim populations, and political parties in some countries consider themselves as having ties to the Brotherhood but denounce violent extremism.
President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey, a NATO ally, considers himself a supporter of the group.
Once designated, it becomes unlawful for Americans to provide support or resources to the group while U.S. financial institutions are told to freeze their assets.
Analysts at the Central Intelligence Agency have warned that labeling the Muslim Brotherhood as terrorists “may fuel extremism” and that allies in the region “probably worry that such a step could destabilize their internal politics, feed extremist narratives, and anger Muslims worldwide,” according to a 2017 memo obtained by Politico. source
I believe that if Trump goes through with designating the MB as terrorists – this will only help his chances in 2020. Many Conservatives were disappointed that he did not do this soon after the election.
But as they say – better late than never!
But, get it done, Mr. President!!
