More than a year after a petition was formed demanding that the Muslim Brotherhood be named a terrorist organization, the White House has finally commented on it, and what they said is shocking…
The Obama administration announced on Monday that the Muslim Brotherhood is not in fact a terrorist organization, despite all the evidence to the contrary.
“We have not seen credible evidence that the Muslim Brotherhood has renounced its decades-long commitment to non-violence,” the White House said in response to the petition, which garnered 213,146 signatures.
“The United States does not condone political violence of any kind and we continue to press actors of all viewpoints to peacefully engage in the political process,” the response added. “The United States is committed to thwarting terrorist groups that pose a threat to U.S. interests and those of our partners.”
The original petition pointed out that the Muslim Brotherhood “has a long history of violent killings & terrorizing opponents. Also MB has direct ties with most terrorist groups like Hamas.”
Formed just after Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated President Mohammad Morsi was removed from power in July of 2013, the petition declared, “The Muslim Brotherhood has shown in the past few days that it is willing to engage in violence and killing of innocent civilians in order to invoke fear in the hearts of its opponents. This is terrorism.”
“We ask the US government to declare MB as a terrorist group for a safer future for all of us,” the petition finished.
Though the petition reached the 100,000 signature threshold that typically prompts a response, Obama and his goons have remained mum on it until now. Their response is so ridiculous that perhaps they should have just kept their mouths shut…
