Significantly, this move has been endorsed by Coptic Solidarity, and the Muslim Brotherhood has already been banned as a terrorist organization by several countries, including Bahrain and Saudi Arabia.
Ted Cruz introduces bill to designate Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization

"Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL) have introduced a bill to ask the Secretary of State to designate the Muslim Brotherhood as an international terrorist organization." [Christine Rousselle, author of the source news article below.]
It is high time that the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) be officially designated a terrorist organization, as a beginning process in weeding out MB affiliates (both individuals and groups) from America. They have infiltrated enough.
The Muslim Brotherhood motto states:
"Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. Quran is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope..."
In the words of Muslim Brotherhood founder Hassan Al-Banna, “all Muslims must make Jihad“:
"Jihad is an obligation from Allah on every Muslim and cannot be ignored nor evaded. Allah has ascribed great importance to jihad and has made the reward of the martyrs and the fighters in His way a splendid one. Only those who have acted similarly and who have modeled themselves upon the martyrs in their performance of jihad can join them in this reward. Furthermore, Allah has specifically honored the Mujahideen [those who fight jihad] with certain exceptional qualities, both spiritual and practical, to benefit them in this world and the next. Their pure blood is a symbol of victory in this world and the mark of success and felicity in the world to come."
Cruz also referenced the Muslim Brotherhood’s goal of civilizational jihad, as stated in its “Explanatory Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Brotherhood in North America”:
“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…”
The advocacy and human rights group Coptic Solidarity also came out in full support of the Bill to designate the MB as a terrorist organization. The Copts know.
“Ted Cruz Introduces Bill To Designate Muslim Brotherhood As Terrorist Organization”, by Christine Rousselle, Town Hall, January 11, 2017:
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL) have introduced a bill to ask the Secretary of State to designate the Muslim Brotherhood as an international terrorist organization.
The bill, dubbed the “Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act,” states that the group has met the criteria of a terrorist group….
The Muslim Brotherhood was founded in 1928. Several countries, including Bahrain and Saudi Arabia, have designated the group as a terrorist organization.
