6.) Example of a Muslim Brotherhood LTE
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 proposed bill, the Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act of 2017 (S.68).
On November 24, 2008, a federal jury in Dallas 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 HLF 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 group, as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation 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 Seantors and ask them to sign on to Ted Cruz's bill as cosponsors.
