T. Belman. During his campaign, Trump went so far as to say that he would defeat both Islamic radicals and the Islamic ideology He also said he would label the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization. But did he mean it? So far, his picks, Gen Flynn, KT McFarland and Gen. Mattis suggest he meant it. But, not only have we heard nothing more about banning the MB and cleansing the government of its members, he appointed Betsy Devos as Secretary of Education. She is a supporter of Common Core which whitewashes Islam and she funded ANTI-ISRAEL, Pro-Muslim curriculum in America’s Public Schools. She also supports extremist Muslims who aid and abet Islamic terrorist groups, bring terrorism-supporting Muslim illegal aliens into the United States, and boycott Israel. This according to Debbie Schlussel.
So is he going to kick them out of the country or is he going to embrace them.

Ever since Britain joined the Obama administration in 2011 to demand the removal of Hosni Mubarak, the British government has faced a difficult dilemma about how to handle the Muslim Brotherhood, the party that took over following the Egyptian president’s downfall.

This whitewashing is baffling. Even the review went so far as to identify the Muslim Brotherhood’s connection with Hamas, which Britain has designated a terrorist organization.
In early November, the Commons Select Committee on Foreign Affairs said the report’s ambivalent conclusions had undermined confidence in Britain’s dealings with the Arab world. For example, the report seems to have ignored the fact that shortly after the Muslim Brotherhood’s Mohammed Morsi took power in 2012, hardline Salafists emerged and launched a campaign of terror against secular-minded Egyptians. Women were regularly harassed to wear the veil, and Coptic Christians were attacked and killed.
The Morsi government also sought to deepen its ties with Hamas and initiated a rapprochement between Cairo and Tehran. Iranian warships were soon granted passage through the Suez Canal for the first time since the 1979 Iranian revolution.
This worrying precedent hasn’t been repeated since Mr. Morsi was overthrown in 2013 by Abdel Fattah Al Sisi, the former defense minister and now Egypt’s president. Mr. …read more
