Walid Phares, a top-foreign policy adviser to U.S. President-elect Donald Trump, said the Trump administration will sign a bill that designates the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization.
Phares told Egyptian Youm7 on Wednesday that: “Trump considers the Muslim Brotherhood a dangerous group that fuels the Jihadist ideology, thus he seeks for a military strike against the group and will not politically contain the group as Obama and H. Clinton did”.
In February, the US House Judiciary Committee approved legislation calling for the US State Department to designate the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt as a foreign terrorist organization.
The State Department has done nothing.
Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the UAE have called the Brotherhood a terrorist organization.
If Trump does do this, what becomes of all of those employees at DHS? Then there are the poisonous little offspring groups like CAIR and ISNA for example, like the ones that are banned in Egypt, the UAE, and Saudi Arabia.
Early Wednesday morning, Hussam Ayloush, head of the Council on American Islamic Relations’ Los Angeles office, tweeted this:
Ok, repeat after me:
Al-Shaab yureed isqat al-nizaam.
(Arab Spring chant)

You won’t like the translation from Wikipedia.
Ash-shaʻb yurīd isqāṭ an-niẓām means “the people want to bring down the regime”. It is a political slogan associated with the Arab Spring.The slogan first emerged during the Tunisian Revolution.
It’s unclear what he is referencing here but he has been to the White House twice.
The Obama administration and Hillary Clinton colluded with the Brotherhood during the Arab Spring in Egypt and in Libya. Huma Abedin, Hillary’s closest advisor, has a late father, mother, brother and sister closely tied to the Muslim Brotherhood and al Qaeda-linked organizations.
In 2013, Senator John McCain met with various rebels in a safe-house in Syria. Among those present was Islamic State leader al-Baghdad according to this report and the attached photo.
