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.

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.

    Why impeach: Using the power of the presidency to withhold aide to one of the worst humanitarian crisis on the planet in exchange for political favors in order to sway the 20/20 election. Acting like a criminal and threatening the life of the whistleblower (Mob bosses are criminals not actors). Mr. America first is sending troops to Saudi Arabia in support of a murdering dictator who spends millions at his hotels and resorts. Corey Lewandowski testified to congress that trump ordered him to obstruct justice. Blocking information that pertains to the safety of our country from reaching congress. Has been threatening NOAA, a federal agency, with punishment if they do not disavow the truth and side with his lies. Invited the Taliban to Camp David the week of 9/11. #PussyAssBitch He’s doctoring weather maps to try and prove he’s not an idiot. Has stayed at trump properties 293 days in 3 years, that’s our tax dollars going directly into his pocket. Took money from military daycares to pay for a wall that won’t work and no one wants. The Vice President and the Attorney General are both spending tax payer dollars on trump hotels, lining his pockets and currying his favor. Privately instructed aides to skirt laws and regulations to get the wall built faster — and told them he will pardon them if necessary. Pressuring a government agency to give a contract for his wall to a company whose chief executive is a donor to one of his top GOP allies in Congress. Took hundreds of millions from 127 different projects (FEMA being one of those) for his wall. Thinks nuking a hurricane is an idea. Pushing to host the next G-7 at one of his own resorts. Taunted Iran by tweeting a classified image of an Iranian rocket that had exploded, thereby potentially compromising U.S. intelligence capabilities. His own company would save millions from the low interest rates he is demanding. Was going to give you tax cuts through your paychecks but decided not to. Destroying the economy with HIS trade war. We will soon average a 1.2 trillion deficit. He is repeating NRA talking points on background checks so expect no action taken regardless of the fact there has been 27 arrested over threats to commit mass attacks since El Paso( NOT TOLEDO). Made fun of republicans being afraid of the NRA and then caved after a 30 minute phone conversation with them. Bragged about indefinite child detention because it brings families together. Refusing flue shots, that protect us all(google influenza pandemic), to immigrant children. Attacking fellow congresswomen in really disgusting ways and making anti-Semitic remarks about Jews calling them disloyal. Thinks he’s the chosen one based on a conspiracy theory web sight. Impeachment: Obstruction of Justice. Profiting from the Presidency. Collusion - They had a meeting & lied about it. Advocating political & police violence. Abuse of power. Engaging in reckless behavior. Persecuting political opponents. Attacking the free press. Violating immigrants Right to Due Process. Violating campaign finance laws. Racist: Speaks directly to and often tweeting straight from white supremacists. Calls them very fine people. Told fellow congresswomen to go back where they came from. Called them shit hole countries. Called them murderers and rapists. Calls her Pocahontas. Took out full page adds calling for the death of five innocent black kids in New York, 1989. Literally has said in an interview he has Hitlers speeches, My New Order in his nightstand. Our Money: Spent campaign finance money on hush payments to silence a porn star he had an affair with in order to hide it from the voters. Has spent over $100 million of our tax dollars playing golf at his own golf courses. Has never divested from companies and advertises and profits off the White House. Was going to cut Medicaid and Medicare funding to pay for the tax cuts he gave to the rich. Is actively destroying farmers lives with his trade wars that we all know only hurts our pockets not Chinas. Has made the lives of every truck driver across America as well as our own, more dangerous by removing safety regulations that only benefits the pockets of the CEOs of those companies. Has removed any and all protections we had in place from work safety, environment, women’s rights, LGBTQ rights and gives that power back to the CEOs, oil companies, men and old white men. Saudi funded lobbyist rented 500 rooms at a trump hotel he never divested from right after he became president. Wonder why? Sexual Predator: Accused by more than 20 women of molestation and rape. Bragged about said molestation on tape. Has cheated on all three wives (see above). Has made sexual remarks on camera about his daughter. Belittles and bully’s strong women. Not even sure he’s aware he has two daughters. Idiot: Has allowed North Korea to grow there nuclear weapons program. Took the side of Putin over America’s own security agencies on the national stage. Lacks the intelligence and facts needed to communicate on a global level much less national one. Makes policy decisions based on FOX media. Lies when speaks. Doesn’t believe in science and quite often displays his ignorance of it. Russia: Lied about meetings with Russians. Lied about a trump tower Moscow. Personal attorney Michael Cohen (same guy who broke campaign finance laws under trumps direction) had contacts with russian officials. National Security aide Flynn resigned over Russian contacts. Jeff Sessions recused himself because of Russian contacts. Manafort resigned because of Russian contacts. Campaign foreign policy adviser Papadopoulos met with Russians then bragged about it to Australians who then turned that info over to our FBI. Sixteen campaign officials had contacts with Russia and at least nine others new about it. Russian mobster lived in trump tower. trump casino was flagged 106 times for lax money laundering standards and same Russian frequently stayed at trump casino. Has been selling real estate to Russians for years. It really is surprising how many connections to Russians this man has. Rick Scott, Marco Rubio, Bill Posey You are my representatives. OLC policy: The indictment or criminal prosecution of a sitting President would unconstitutionally undermine the capacity of the executive branch to perform its constitutionally assigned functions. It’s time to do your job. You swore an oath to this country, it’s people and me to uphold the constitution. The president has never upheld that oath. How do you want to be remembered?

    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.

    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.
