The Muslim Brotherhood was launched in 1928 on the concept of using violence to terrorize others into adopting its pro-Islam agenda.
It “renounced” violence in the 1970s but multiple link organizations and former members still pursue the blood-and-bashing method of expansion, says Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin.
So it’s not surprising that the administration of President Donald Trump is considering designating the group as terrorist.
After all, the administration already applied that label to the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps, a move that stunned Iran and its advocates.
A report reveals such a designation would impose “wide-ranging economic and travel sanctions on companies and individuals who interact with the targeted group.”
But in a special report at the Investigative Project on Terror, Hany Ghoraba explains why Iran is vehemently opposed to the U.S. idea.
It’s because it gets its influence partly through the Brotherhood.
“The U.S. is not in position to (..) start naming others as terror organizations and we reject by any attempt by the U.S. in this regard,” Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif said, according to the IPT report.
