Influence: The Muslim Brotherhood in America

Jordan Shuts down Muslim Brotherhood HQ in Amman

US should follow through by passing Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act.

In a surprise move, Jordanian police have raided and shut down the headquarters of the Muslim Brotherhood in that country.  No explanation was given by authorities for the move.

A likely explanation is that the Brotherhood was involved in a plot against the King of Jordan.  This would merely be in line with the Brotherhood’s charter.  The Muslim Brotherhood is a declared terrorist organization in Egypt because in 2012 it attempted to overthrow the constitution and replace it with sharia law.  Nor was this the first time.

Since its founding in 1928, the Brotherhood has attempted to overthrow the government of Egypt to establish a caliphate every time it has had the strength.  It began its violent attempts before the Second World War.  During that war it aligned with the Nazis, hoping to gain control of Egypt as a Nazi ally.  Following the defeat of the Nazis it converted from using military battalions to terrorist tactics.  It waged war on the royalist government, finally helping to overthrow that government in a military coup.  It then took up arms against the military government led by Nasser.  Once Nasser drove them out, they went to Germany and began spreading across Europe.

Their charter continues to bind them to the overthrow of secular governments, and the creation of a global Islamic caliphate under sharia law.

For these reasons, Congress should follow through on passing the Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act sponsored by Senator Ted Cruz in the Senate and Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart in the House.

The Brotherhood should also be a declared terrorist organization within the United States because it has acted to infiltrate and subvert our government in dangerous ways.  In 1996 its chief American agent, Abdurahman Alamoudi, enjoyed significant access to the Clinton White House as the founder of the American Muslim Council. In that role, he was able to appoint Islamic chaplains to the US military and to recruit converts in Federal prison.  Now, he is serving a 23-year prison sentence on Federal terrorism charges.  The subversion has not stopped.  The Brotherhood now appoints Islamic chaplains through another of its allied organizations, the Islamic Society of North America.

The Muslim Brotherhood should likewise be a declared terrorist organization within the United States because our Justice Department has proven its connections to Hamas and al Qaeda.  Its affiliates conduct military training for their members in enclaves in the United States where sharia law is enforced with the whip.

America should follow Jordan’s lead in this matter.  It’s time to shut down the Brotherhood and its affiliates.
