Should the State Dept. Consider Designating the Muslim Brotherhood as a Foreign Terrorist Organization?

Argument in favor

The Muslim Brotherhood has espoused policies that encourage violence and acts of terrorism around the world, in addition to providing support for terror groups like Al Qaeda & Hamas. The Muslim Brotherhood should be designated as a foreign terrorist organization and face resulting sanctions.

A better question is why aren’t they designated as one already?

About time. Even Egypt has booted them out as a terrorist organization. Long overdue!

Why hasn’t this already occurred? How many attacks on our sovereignty, values, resources, and LIVES do we have to endure? Americans are entitled to and deserve to be safe, we are not safe with these individuals or groups invading, taking advantage, attacking and killing American citizens. Remove all here pushing their warped UN-American PROPAGANDA. MAGA. Trump 2020

Argument opposed

While there may be problematic branches of the Muslim Brotherhood which should face sanctions for supporting terrorism, branding the entire broad, multinational political organization as a foreign terror group is excessive and could be counterproductive to democratic processes in Muslim nations.

How about we instead designate all the hate groups in the US as terrorist organizations

Condemning the Muslim Brotherhood broadly is a mistake. There are certainly factions of the Muslim Brotherhood that promote violence and these factions should be treated as terrorists. I fear that this is too broad a statement that unfairly objectifies all members and comes close to slapping a terrorist label of people for their religious beliefs. I agree with many of the postings here that point out much more threatening domestic terrorist groups that have clearly defined agendas of advocating and executing violent acts against people of color or generally, our government.

    Love it, Daniel. Good one! 🤣👏🏻👏🏻👍🏻 Another repugnant trying to do repugnant things. I say we call the Pig and his complicit defenders terrorists! They are selling our country to the highest bidders for their personal gain. Now, that’s what I call terrorism, too!

    No! The Muslim Brotherhood does not meet the legal definition of a terrorist group and making that its designation could have unintended consequences in the allied countries where the Brotherhood is prominent inside of political parties. This is yet another islamoohobic move, that demonizes an entire group of people.

    It’s agreed that there are some extreme branches of the Muslim Brotherhood that have provided support to terrorist organizations, but we can’t designate the entire group as terrorists. It’s counterproductive and could hurt democracy in many Muslim-majority countries. Also @Langho saying that we can’t have Muslims in Congress is a completely racist statement. There are over 1 billion Muslims in the World, and if every single one of them was a terrorist, you’d be pretty screwed.

    If there’s no problem then they should be okay with getting analyzed.

    I despise bills like this, ones with an obvious agenda. The Muslim brotherhood may need to be analyzed and if necessary call them a terrorist organization. But there are other groups that have demonstrated they are terrorizing our people. If we want to call out one group let’s work to call them all out.

    First, designate home grown groups such as the NRA, GOP, FOX News, Limbaugh ‘s EIB Network, Breitbart, white supremacists, radical Christian extremists and others who have killed significantly more Americans than any foreign enemy has effected. More hatred and intolerance is fomented at home by the before mentioned miscreants and that’s where our focus and remedial action needs to be focused.
