Congress Must Take Action. America’s Security is at stake.

The Muslim Brotherhood is a vast and sophisticated international Islamist organization—its dedication to Jihad and participation in terrorism represents a significant threat to the United States.

The Brotherhood, which was founded in Egypt in 1928 by Hassan al-Banna, is the most influential Islamist organization in the world, with a mission to topple all non-Islamic governments with rule by Islamic law, or sharia. The Brotherhood’s long-standing motto includes the following: “Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. The Qur’an is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.”

Congress must pass H.R. 377 and S.68 to instruct the State Department to designate the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization.

“Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. The Qur’an is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.”

HASSAN AL-BANNA (1928)

Founder of the Muslim Brotherhood

“Jihad [means] the fighting of the unbelievers, and involves all possible efforts that are necessary to dismantle the power of the enemies of Islam including beating them, plundering their wealth, destroying their places of worship and smashing their idols.” [Book of Jihad, 1928]

SAYYID QUTB (1964)

Most Prominent Muslim Brotherhood and terrorist Ideologue

This movement uses the methods of preaching and persuasion for reforming ideas and beliefs, and it uses physical power and Jihad for abolishing the organizations and authorities of the Jahili [non-Islamic] system which prevents people from reforming their ideas and beliefs, but forces them to obey their erroneous ways and make them serve human lords instead of the Almighty Lord.” [Milestones, 1964]

ABDULLAH AZZAM (1988)

Father of Global Jihad,” a founder of al-Qaeda, and a Muslim Brotherhood member

“Jihad means fighting. You must fight in any place you can get. Whenever Jihad is mentioned in the Holy Book, it means the obligation to fight. It does not mean to fight with the pen or to write books or articles in the press or to fight by holding lectures.” [Speech at the Al Farooq Mosque, Brooklyn, New York, 1988]

YUSUF AL-QARADAWI (2000)

Senior Muslim Brotherhood Islamic Jurist

Therefore, the Islamic Movement cannot stand idle and watch Muslim lands being occupied by a foreign aggressor. It is not strange that the general headquarters of Al Ikhwanul Muslimoon [The Muslim Brothers] in Cairo was the home of the mujahideen [Jihadists] and revolutionaries who fought the occupation in all parts of the Arab and Muslim worlds from Indonesia to Morocco.” [Priorities of the Islamic Movement in the Coming Phase, 2000]

“...that the improvement and change that the [Muslim] nation seeks can only be attained through jihad and sacrifice and by raising a jihadi generation that pursues death just as the enemies pursue life…The United States is now experiencing the beginning of its end, and is heading towards its demise.” [Sermon in Egypt, 2010]

MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD OFFICIAL STATEMENT (2015)

Ikhwanonline.com

“It is incumbent upon everyone to be aware that we are in the process of a new phase, where we summon what is latent in our strength, where we recall the meanings of jihad and prepare ourselves, our wives, our sons, our daughters, and whoever marched on our path to a long, uncompromising jihad, and during this stage we ask for martyrdom.” [Ikhwanonline.com, 2015]

“The issue of terrorist financing in the United States is a fundamental example of the shared infrastructure levered by Hamas, Islamic Jihad and al-Qaeda, all of which enjoy a significant degree of cooperation and coordination within our borders.

The common link here is the extremist Muslim Brotherhood—all of these organizations are descendants of the membership and ideology of the Muslim Brothers.”
