It’s a new day and very soon a new administration. Ted Cruz has introduced two bills that will knock the knees out from under the foothold of the Muslim Brotherhood’s infiltration into our government and society.
Conservative Tribune released this:
A series of two bills being introduced by Texas Sen. Ted Cruz would mark two organizations, including the Egyptian-based Muslim Brotherhood, as terrorist groups, according to a statement released by the senator’s office Tuesday.
The bill was notable in that several major individuals and groups in the United States — including top Hillary Clinton adviser Huma Abedin and Muslim advocacy group the Council on American-Islamic Relations — have been tied to the Muslim Brotherhood in one way or another.
According to the statement, the series of bills would also target the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps.
The IRGC Terrorist Designation Act, introduced with Congressman McCaul who has filed companion legislation in the House of Representatives, urges the U.S. Department of State to designate Iran’s IRGC as a foreign terrorist organization. Likewise, the Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act, introduced with Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart who has filed companion legislation in the House of Representatives, urges the U.S. Department of State to designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a foreign terrorist organization.
Aren’t you glad that Hillary wasn’t elected? Huma Abedin would be driving the bus in the oval office and legislation like this would never see the light of day.
A piece in The Hill by Republican congressional candidate Kenneth R. Timmerman from last August detailed Abedin’s ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. Most notably, her mother sat on the board of the International Islamic Council for Da’wa and Relief, which is headed by the chief of the Muslim Brotherhood organization.
Now, is Abedin a terrorist? Hardly. Does she have ties to a terrorist organization? Undoubtedly.
One thing is for certain, under a Trump administration, this topic will be treated with the care and consideration it deserves.
