Liberals are panicking today after reports came in claiming that Donald Trump is planning to “jump-start” legislation that would classify the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization.

Conservative Tribune reported that the legislation was introduced last year by Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, and it has been held up by Barack Obama’s refusal to recognize the Egyptian organization, and a connected American offshoot, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, as a terrorist group.

Trump, however, has said that he is willing to sign the legislation, which would reclassify the Muslim Brotherhood, CAIR and the Islamic Society of North America as terroristic. An advisor to Trump confirmed to Egyptian television that the president-elect is making this legislation a top priority.

The Muslim Brotherhood was founded in 1928 as a nationalist group, but it was repurposed in the 1970s to be used as a tool to spread Islamic thought and values. The group’s motto is “Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. The Quran is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope. (Allah is greater!)”

The Muslim Brotherhood has been banned in numerous countries, including five Arab states. Syria, Saudi Arabia and the Muslim Brotherhood’s home base of Egypt have all banned the group.

Though the Muslim Brotherhood has always claimed that they are not a terrorist group, a document found by the FBI in 2004 during a raid of one of the group’s safe houses states that they believe “work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ‘sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions. Without this level of understanding, we are not up to this challenge and have not prepared ourselves for jihad yet. It is a Muslim’s destiny to perform jihad and work wherever he is and wherever he lands until the final hour comes, and there is no escape from that destiny except for those who chose to slack.”

Both the Muslim Brotherhood and their American offshoot CAIR were also listed in the largest terrorism funding case ever prosecuted in the United States.

Democrats will likely strongly oppose this legislation, especially since Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison, a possible candidate for a Democrat leadership position, is a proud supporter of both CAIR and ISNA.
