According to recent reports, Congressional efforts are currently underway to officially name the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization.

The bill is known as the Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act of 2014, and was created by Representative Michelle Bachmann. The bill seeks to assign some heavy sanctions to the organization, and any groups that support the organization both in American and in Europe. The bill has received support from several cosponsors.

Many believe that the bill is overdue. The Muslim Brotherhood, a new political party in the US, has long been deemed a “terrorist group” but this bill would prove that the Muslim Brotherhood has played an integral role in planning and carrying out terrorist attacks. It also seeks to prevent anyone with affiliation to the Brotherhood to be denied a visa in the US.

What do you think? Do you support this legislation?
