Liberals are going through a bit of a crisis since Donald Trump was elected. Barbara Boxer is calling for an end to the Electoral College. Whiny liberal college students are staging protests. And a Council for American Islamic Relations (CAIR) leader has called for the American government to be overthrown. The hand-wringing is truly epic. And after Trump designates this group as a terrorist organization, it will likely only get worse.
Trump has declared that he plans to designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization. The Obama administration has long supported the radical group, but it looks like things are about to change.
The legislation, which Trump supports, has already been approved by the House Judiciary Committee earlier this year and was referred to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. It was on track until the Obama administration stepped in to slow it down, even though the bill has bipartisan support.
The bill was introduced in 2015 by Ted Cruz and it identifies three organizations as part of the Muslim Brotherhood, and it includes CAIR. “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,” Cruz said.
In addition to naming the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization, it also educates members of Congress. It reviews their terrorist ties and activities, and points out that the group is banned by the governments of Egypt, Russia, the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Syria. In addition to CAIR, the Muslim Brotherhood also has links to the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) and the North American Islamic Trust (NAIT).
Not only has Obama not taken the Muslim Brotherhood’s terrorist activities seriously — even though multiple Middle-Eastern countries have — he also invited them to be in the audience when he addressed Cairo University in 2009. They may not look like the stereotypical terrorists, but make no mistake: just because they wear suits and ties, it doesn’t mean they’re not linked to terrorist activities.
For its part, CAIR is who has ties to Hamas and who pressured the Obama administration to purge FBI and Department of Defense training materials of any mention of Islamic terrorism. Rep. Keith Ellison is also rumored to be the Democrats’ pick to take over as chairman of the Democratic National Committee, which is laughable, because Ellison himself is rumored to have ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.
We can’t defeat Islamic terrorism if our country’s leaders refuse to call it what it is and to face it head on.
