Then-Republican nominee hopeful, Donald Trump, built his campaign for the presidency based on many issues ignored by the powers that be in the United States government, including banning the Muslim Brotherhood from entering the borders of our country.
And now President-elect Donald Trump is keeping true to his promise, as he is reportedly preparing to immediately push a bill through Congress that would ban the Muslim Brotherhood by declaring it a terrorist organization.
Trump’s foreign-policy adviser, Walid Phares, told an Egyptian news outlet that the legislation, which was introduced originally by Senator Ted Cruz, was held up due to President Obama’s support of the Brotherhood.
Trump will be reintroducing and backing the bill when he takes office in January of 2017.
Cruz’s bill was called the Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act of 2015-16, which identified the Brotherhood’s several terrorist offshoots, including the Council on American-Islamic Relations and the Islamic Society of North America.
Russia also banned the Brotherhood as a subversive terrorist organization as well as several other countries, including Syria, Saudi Arabia and Egypt.
The Brotherhood was founded in Egypt in 1928 by Hasan al-Banna.
In the 1970s, it transitioned from a primarily nationalist group seeking to Islamize Egypt, to an international network seeking to spread the concepts of Shariah throughout the world.
It now has franchised affiliates in more than 70 countries.
The Brotherhood employs different strategies for different countries.
In Western democracies such as the U.S. and Canada, it seeks to destroy those countries “from within” through a process it calls “civilization jihad.”
And when the FBI raided a Muslim Brotherhood safe house, they discovered documents that clearly stated their strategic plans against America under Shariah Law.
The documents read:
“An Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Group in North America.
Work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.
Without this level of understanding, we are not up to this challenge and have not prepared ourselves for Jihad yet.
It is a Muslim’s destiny to perform Jihad and work wherever he is and wherever he lands until the final hour comes, and there is no escape from that destiny except for those who chose to slack.”
And the Muslim Brotherhood’s motto is:
“Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. The Quran is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope. [Allah is greater!]”
The Brotherhood and its offshoots – CAIR and ISNA – are not only able to operate legally in the United States, but they have been offered seats at the table – across from the highest positions in our government.
Representative Keith Ellison of Minnesota – who has been an enthusiastic supporter of CAIR and ISNA – may become the Democratic Party’s leadership as chairman of the Democratic National Committee.
Ellison is one of two known Muslims currently in Congress; the other being Democrat Andre Carson from Indiana.
It sounds like Donald Trump is dedicated to cleaning up this toxic mess and stopping the Muslim Brotherhood from bleeding into our borders.
And with Republicans now in control of Congress, it should be just a matter of time.
