Senator Ted Cruz has filed a bill to designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO).
We congratulate Senator Cruz for this long overdue move. Way back in 2007 the Bush administration was petitioned to designate the Muslim Brotherhood but they failed to do so.
Not only is the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization, it is the forerunner of all modern-day Sunni Jihadist terrorist organizations.
There is a common misconception that the Muslim Brotherhood swore off violence years ago, but that myth stems from an agreement decades ago between the MB and the Egyptian government. The MB agreed not to target the Egyptian government with violence, but they never gave up all violent Jihad.
