Jihad: Washington’s strategy to defeat terrorism is lacking in many ways, but none more than its failure to attack it at its root: the Muslim Brotherhood. But that may change with the fast-tracking of a bill to outlaw the terror network.
In a major development on this important front, the House Judiciary Committee Wednesday passed a bill to effectively ban the Muslim Brotherhood as a designated terrorist group, 17-10.
The legislation — which freezes Brotherhood assets and also outs its front groups, including hundreds in the U.S. — is headed for the House floor. Its passage there is likely since the GOP leadership supports HR 3892, which has 28 co-sponsors and is steadily gaining new backers each week.
If a companion bill introduced in the Senate by GOP Sen. Ted Cruz passes, it would tee the ban up for a GOP president to sign into law — a dream of FBI case agents across the country, who find elements of the Brotherhood showing up in virtually every terrorism case they work.Read the rest of this IBD editorial HERE and follow a link to a related stoey below:
