Muslim Brotherhood

Did you know that Egypt, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Syria, and the United Arab Emirates have all designated the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization? Yes, these are all Muslim-majority countries. America should follow suit and has the opportunity thanks to Senator Ted Cruz’s and Representative Mario Diaz-Balart’s proposed legislation, the Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act of 2017 (S.68 and H.R.377, respectively).

On November 24, 2008, a federal jury in Dallas, TX, convicted five leaders of the Holy Land Foundation (HLF) charity for providing material support to Hamas, a terrorist group. The US government provided evidence that the Muslim Brotherhood set up the HLF with the intent to fund Hamas. Even worse than the Holy Land Foundation donating $12.4 M to terrorism is that the Muslim Brotherhood’s goal is to destroy Western Civilization from within.

A federal judge also listed the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a Muslim Brotherhood front group, as an unindicted co-conspirator in the HLF trial. CAIR’s president, Nihad Awad, is a professed Hamas supporter. With Muslim Brotherhood groups in the US, like CAIR, it is clear we must designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization. Please call your Senators and ask them to sign on to the bill as cosponsors.

 Back the Blue

On this historic weekend, we remember those who risked their lives in response to the 9/11 terrorist attack. Police officers are our brothers, sisters, neighbors, and are woven into the fabric of society. In 1955, the Los Angeles Police Department adopted “To Protect and Serve” as the official motto of its Police Academy. There are many instances of these officers risking their lives to protect and serve us, and we should back the blue.

Norbert Ramon is a 24-year-veteran of the Houston Police Department. During hurricane Harvey, Ramon helped rescue 1,500 victims from the fatal floods. He did all of this despite having stage 4 colon cancer, which spread to his liver and lungs, and despite being given 6 to 8 years to live. Similarly, Officer Gene Taylor – Monroe County, MI – risked his life to save a 14-year-old girl. The girl ran onto railroad tracks, while a train sped towards her, and Officer Taylor pulled her to safety.

These police officers are both heroes and there are many more like them in communities all across America. These men and women put themselves in danger on a daily basis, and truly live by the motto of “To Protect and Serve.” Like the 9/11 terrorist attack, we must never forget the bravery of officers, like Ramon and Taylor.
