Republican Senator Ted Cruz of Texas has never been one to shirk his responsibility to protect the American people. He consistently and unashamedly stands up for what he knows to be right and good for the safety of the United States.
His recent call to Biden’s State Department is no different.
“Sen. Ted Cruz and Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart [R-FL] called on the State Department to designate the radical Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist group last week, as the Biden administration is accused of boosting the extremist group in the Middle East,” Breitbart News reported Friday.
“The move would also require the State Department to report to Congress over the possibility that the Muslim Brotherhood — whose motto declares, ‘The Koran is our law, jihad is our way, dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope,’ — meets the ‘legal criteria for designation’ of a terrorist organization, thereby enabling the U.S. to ‘take action that could stifle the funding they receive to promote their malign activities,'” reported Breitbart.
Senator Cruz introduced the bill by demanding that we pursue the American fight against “radical Islamic terrorism,” saying:
It’s high time we join our allies in the Arab world in formally recognizing the Muslim Brotherhood for what they truly are, a terrorist organization. So today, I’m proud to reintroduce this bill to urge the Biden administration to designate them as such, and advance our nation’s fight against radical Islamic terrorism. We have a duty to hold the Muslim Brotherhood accountable for their role in financing and promoting terrorism across the Middle East.
This isn’t the first time Senator Cruz has engaged in the fight against the Muslim Brotherhood. He previously pushed this bill in 2015, 2017, and 2020.
“The bill comes as the Biden administration recently conditioned security assistance to Egypt on dropping of charges against extremists, as a broader push by Democrats seeks to pressure Egypt to release extremists, including Muslim Brotherhood members,” Breitbart reports.
