Sen. Ted Cruz Calls to Designate Radical Muslim Brotherhood a ‘Foreign Terrorist Organization’:
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL) called on the State Department to designate the radical Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist group last week, as the Biden administration is accused of boosting the extremist group in the Middle East.
The bill, which was reintroduced by the two last Thursday and is titled “the Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act,” demands the State Department designate the group as a “Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO).”
The move would also require the State Department to report to Congress over the possibility that the Muslim Brotherhood — whose motto declares, “The Koran is our law, jihad is our way, dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope,” — meets the “legal criteria for designation” of a terrorist organization, thereby enabling the U.S. to “take action that could stifle the funding they receive to promote their malign activities.”
Cosponsors of the bill, all belonging to the Republican party, include Sens. Jim Inhofe (R-OK) and Ron Johnson (R-WI), as well as Rep. Guy Reschenthaler (R-PA), and others.
Sen. Cruz, who is a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, introduced the bill by emphasizing the need to recognize the group for what it is and pursue the American fight against “radical Islamic terrorism”: --->READ MORE HERE
Joe Biden wants to set free Muslim Brotherhood associates:
Is the Biden Administration holding Egypt aid hostage in exchange for freeing a bloodthirsty Muslim Brotherhood leader? Writes Kyle Shideler
The Biden Administration is currently withholding $130 million in security and counterterrorism assistance to the Egyptian government, unless 16 unnamed prisoners, among whom may be included a virulent anti-Semitic jihadist cleric, are released from Egyptian prisons.
That was the reveal in a recent floor speech by Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) this week. Cruz has been locked in a rhetorical battle with the Biden Administration for weeks in the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, centered around nominee Barbara Leaf, currently proposed for state department assistant secretary of state for Near East affairs. Cruz has sought to force answers to questions about the conditioning of Egyptian security aid on the release of the unnamed prisoners.
“Not a single name. None of them. Congress doesn’t get to know who those 16 people are”, Cruz said during the speech, which featured a large poster board blow up of Leaf’s 1000-word response to Cruz’s questionnaire, “The answer from Ms. Leaf to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee is, not to put too fine a point on, go jump in a lake.”
Cruz called the Biden Administration’s action “extortion” and wondered aloud about the nature of the prisoner list, noting that the list of names is available to Congress in a classified form, but one that remains hidden from the public. --->READ MORE HERE
