Yesterday, Congress took the first step toward designating the Muslim Brotherhood as what it is: a terrorist organization. The decision will ultimately be up to the executive branch, not lawmakers. But the fact that legislation calling for such a designation has cleared a House committee is a big deal.
After all, for more than five decades, this terrorist organization has been allowed to establish an infrastructure of mosques, Islamic societies and front groups across America. Today, there are thousands of them here.
Worse yet – even though the government has known for twelve years that the mission of the Brotherhood in the United States is “destroying Western civilization from within” – administrations of both parties have allowed its operatives access to and influence on policymaking.
Not surprisingly, the jihadists are flourishing – at our extreme peril.
Designate the Muslim Brotherhood.
