Texas Senator Ted Cruz introduced two bills last Tuesday characterizing two organizations as terrorist groups. The organizations are the Egyptian-based Muslim Brotherhood and Muslim advocacy group the Council on American-Islamic Relations, in addition with Clinton’s top adviser Huma Abedin, who was also connected with the previous two.
The statement said that the bill will include Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps too.
“I am proud to reintroduce these bills that would codify needed reforms in America’s war against radical Islamic terrorism,” said Sen. Cruz.
“This potent threat to our civilization has intensified under the Obama administration due to the willful blindness of politically-correct policies that hamper our safety and security. A grand détente with the Muslim Brotherhood and a blind eye to the IRGC are not pathways to peace in this struggle; they guarantee the ultimate success of our enemy.”
“It is time to call this enemy by its name and speak with clarity and moral authority,” he continued.
According to The Hill, there was a report by Republican congressional candidate Kenneth R. Timmerman in which Clintons adviser Abedin is said to be connected to the Muslim Brotherhood, whose mother was present on the board of the International Islamic Council for Da’wa and Relief, which, again, is led by the chief of the Muslim Brotherhood organization.
Senator Cruze in his statement also added a fragment from a Muslim Brotherhood document saying: “The process of settlement is a Civilization-Jihad process…The Ikhwan (Muslim Brotherhood) must understand that their 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.”
According to a report, Andrew McCarthy indicated on the occasion when former Rep. of Minnesota Michele Bachmann suggested an investigation into Abedin’s connections with Muslim Brotherhood in 2012, she was cut off immediately by Sen. John McCain, calling them “a few unspecified and unsubstantiated associations.”
Sadly, those allegations were not unspecified nor unsubstantiated as Senator McCain identified them. Clinton’s top adviser is noted to have several family ties to the Muslim Brotherhood (as well as a Shariah law journal, the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs, run by her father to “establish a global Shariah in our modern times”).
It remains on further investigation and denouement of events to inform whether these groups really are “unspecified and unsubstantiated associations” or not.
