With all the Muslim Brotherhood associates actually in the White House and connected to Hillary, what are the odds they get designated the terrorist operation that they are?
Other countries – even Muslim countries – have realized this and acted accordingly. So will President Cruz I have a feeling:
Ted Cruz is trying to force the Obama administration’s hand to label the Muslim Brotherhood as a foreign terrorist organization.
Along with Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart (R-Fla.), the presidential hopeful on Tuesday introduced legislation calling on the Obama administration to designate the Islamist political group as a foreign terrorist organization.
The bill, called the Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act, comes after a string of evidence suggesting the group supports terrorism, Cruz said, and after similar moves from a handful of foreign countries in recent years.
“As this bill details, the Brotherhood’s stated goal is to wage violent jihad against its enemies, and our legislation is a reality check that the United States is on that list as well,” Cruz said in a statement Wednesday.
The Obama administration has listed multiple members of the group on its terror list, thereby imposing special restrictions preventing Americans from dealing with them.
“Now we can reject the fantasy that their parent institution is a political entity that is somehow separate from these violent activities,” Cruz added.
In the legislation, Cruz and Diaz-Balart noted that Egypt, Russia, Saudi Arabia and other nations have described the group as a terrorist organization over the last four decades.
Former Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi, a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, was popularly elected following the country’s revolution in 2012, and then deposed by a military coup the following year.
Can’t we just coup Obama out of there? Hey, a guy can dream, can’t he?
Let’s at least get Cruz elected, eh?
