The following data on the Muslim Brotherhood include portions from the U.S. Senate Bill to designate the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization. See the full bill here.
The U.S. Muslim Brotherhood’s stated objective is to overthrow the U.S. government and establish an Islamic State under sharia in violation of U.S. federal law.
Evidence demonstrates the International Muslim Brotherhood and all of its subsidiaries – including the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood – should be designated terrorist organizations.
Statement of Facts
The International Muslim Brotherhood was created in 1928 in Egypt to re-establish the Islamic State (caliphate) under sharia (Islamic Law).
The Muslim Brotherhood (MB) Creed reads: “Allah is our goal, the Prophet is our guide, the Koran is our law, jihad is our way, and dying in the cause of Allah is our highest aspiration.”
The By-Laws of the International Muslim Brother (IMB) identify the IMB as an “International Muslim body which seeks to establish Allah’s law (sharia) in the land….the Islamic nation must be fully prepared to fight the tyrants and enemies of Allah as a prelude to establishing an Islamic state.”
The Muslim Brotherhood’s objectives are identical to Al Qaeda, the Islamic State, and all other jihadi organizations.
Hamas is a Foreign Terrorist Organization and is also “one of the wings of the Brotherhood in Palestine” according to an MB document – the Hamas Covenant.
Terrorist conferences held in Khartoum, Sudan hosted by Sudanese Muslim Brotherhood leader Hassan al-Turabi in Khartoum, Sudan in 1994 and 1995 included representatives from Iranian intelligence, Hezbollah, Palestinian Islamic Jihad, Egyptian Islamic Jihad, the Armed Islamic Group of Algeria, and leaders from the International Muslim Brotherhood, the Muslim Brotherhood in the Gulf Countries, Hamas (the Palestinian Muslim Brotherhood), the Islamic Action Front (Jordanian Muslim Brotherhood), and the Ennahda Movement (the Tunisian Muslim Brotherhood).
Osama bin Laden was present at the conferences.
The parties at the Khartoum meeting agreed to launch a terrorism offensive beginning in 1995, with targets including U.S. interests, including attacks inside the United States.
Senior Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohammad Jamal Khalifa, a veteran of the Soviet-Afghan war and brother-in-law and close confidant of Osama bin Laden was arrested in California in December 1994 on charges related to the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center. Khalifa was linked to the planned Al Qaeda Operation Bojinka plot that included the bombing of 11 airplanes between Asia and the United States.
In 2001, the Kuwaiti Muslim Brotherhood’s Islamic Call Committee was designated a Foreign Terrorist Organization by the U.S. government. Evidence demonstrates the Muslim Brotherhood’s Islamic Call Committee was a financial conduit for Osama bin Laden & Al Qaeda, including funding Al Qaeda operations in Chechnya, Libya, and the United States (1993 World Trade Center Bombing, 9/11 attacks).
In 2004 Yemeni Muslim Brotherhood leader Shaykh Abd-al-Majid Al-Zindani was designated a Specially Designated Terrorist by the U.S. government and was closely tied to Osama bin Laden.
In 2003 Russia banned the MB from operating there.
In 2013 Egypt declared the MB a terrorist organization.
In 2014 Saudi Arabia declared the MB a terrorist organization.
In 2014 the United Arab Emirates (UAE) declared the MB a terrorist organization.
In 2011, FBI Director Robert Mueller stated to Congress: “I can say at the outset that elements of the Muslim Brotherhood both here and overseas have supported terrorism.”
As a matter of fact numerous jihadi attacks in the United States can be tied directly to Muslim Brotherhood organizations including: Fort Hood massacre (Muslim Brotherhood/Hamas Dar al Hijra Islamic Center in VA); Boston Marathon Bombing (Islamic Society of Boston & Muslim American Society); Killing of Army Private Andy Long in Little Rock, Arkansas (Muslim Students Association); Chattanooga Attack killing 4 Marines and 1 Navy sailor (Islamic Society of Greater Chattanooga); and the list goes on.

This above list is not even close to being all-inclusive, and does not include the vast majority of the over 3200 Islamic Centers/mosques across all 50 states controlled by the U.S. Muslim Brotherhood, as well as over 800 Muslim Students Associations and over 270 Islamic Societies in America today.
Nor does this list include the Deobandi entities (Dar al Uloom) nor the shia/Iranian entities inside the United States.
UTT NOTE: It is appropriate to dub all of the organizations listed above as “HATE GROUPS” and their leaders “JIHADIS” – or “TERRORISTS” if you prefer.
There is an immediate and severe threat to Americans from the thousands of Muslim Brotherhood organizations and their affiliates in the United States today.
For this reason Understanding the Threat (UTT) calls for the Muslim Brotherhood to be designated a terrorist organization immediately.
