Egypt's military-backed interim government has declared the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist group, a dramatic escalation that gives authorities more power in cracking down on members of the group.

Of course it's a terrorist group. Anyone who does a little bit of reading about its violent history can see that very easily.

A very well-cited 161 paged (text) book, entitled, "Jihad and Jew-atred: Islamism, Nazism and the Roots of 9/11" by Matthias Kunzel, should leave NO questions about The Ikhwan (the Muslim Brotherhood), its terrorism, and its love affair with Nazi Germany and Hitler, as well as its goals for everyone on the face of the earth.

But then you have the President of the United States and his DOJ who would like to sweep this inconvenient BIG fact under the rug.

The Egyptian government has more honesty and common sense than our POTUS.

The terrorism of the Muslim Brotherhood is not just something of the past.

The mainstream press didn't report anywhere near the extent that the Muslim Brotherhood tortured and murdered Egyptians during Morsi's one-year regime. The Egyptians know all too well.

The terrorism of the Muslim Brotherhood is also a thing of the future, because its philosophy is to try to fool the people who do not understand what Islam is in order to capture the reigns of power and take over. Until then, they are told to blend in with the Western population, and when the time is right, terrorize physically destroy resistance to it, as Muslims are commanded to do in the Koran.

I wish the powers in this country would wake up in this country and let people know so that I doesn't come as a surprise to the ones who are terrified to deviate from the path of perfect political correctness.

Thanks Cal, those of us who follow the events in the Middle East are aware of the evil nature of the Muslim Brotherhood which is why the group was banned under Mubarak. When Morsi came to power he abused and killed many Egyptians regardless of their ethnic origin. It was appalling that Obama called to have him restored nor was it his call to make, it was the Egyptians.

They are now the "rebels" in the war in Syria and the ones killing Christians, destroying churches and harassing refugees of all religious and ethnic origins as well as killing them, men, women and children. Yet we are supporting them! Although Assad is a terrible dictator he, at least, allowed the Christians to live in peace.

It is more than time that America stopped interfering in the Middle East for the oil. They have helped to destroy many societies and bring misery to millions. They have caused and ignored the ethnic cleansing of Jews and now Christians.

Now Obama is interfering to help the Muslim Brotherhood and yet no-one seems to be objecting.

The Moslem Brotherhood has a long history of subversion and, as long as the attitudes that brought it into existence continue to guide it's policies, it will continue long into the future.

it's time obama was called out for supporting a terrorist organization. he wants it buried that they are terrorists. it's time obama was forced to stop giving our countries support to them. if he refuses then it's time to impeach him for support terrorists.

Thank you for those who see beyond this article. The Brotherhood isn't going away; no where in this article did it claim so.

The CIA will still continue to fund this terrorist group with our tax dollars!

“Mohammed Morsi was a leading member of the Brotherhood before he became president. After he was ousted by a military coup in July, the group has waged near-daily protests.”

I can remember when several members of our bought and paid for media were shocked when he was elected into the presidential position. There were many comments made implying that, when Muslims have a chance of voting in democratic elections, they still vote for the more Islamic representative. In truth, the Egyptian people wasted their first democratic election; that is, if the election was fair and the votes were tallied accurately!

I'm glad to see others here who think Obama should be stopped from all he does for them, America needs to wake up, but it may be too late, since they have even been welcomed in the WH.

It's about time word got out concerning Obama's and the Muslim Brotherhood's role in promoting terrorism.

Here's what the MB's plans are for us all in the West from a captured document by the FBI - and Obama has admitted to hundreds of closed door meetings with these thugs and bigots and the US front groups like CAIR etc:

"The process of settlement is a "Civilization-Jihadist Process" with all the word means. The Ikhwan (brotherhood) must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and "sabotaging" its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and Allah’s religion is made victorious over all other religions. Without this level of understanding, we are not up to this challenge and have not prepared ourselves for Jihad yet. It is a Muslim's destiny to perform Jihad and work wherever he is and wherever he lands until the final hour comes, and there is no escape from that destiny except for those who chose to slack. But, would the slackers and the Mujahedeen be equal."

I'd love to see a the Turkish army get rid of the corrupt Islamist government the Turkish people are so unhappy with now, the same way the Egyptian army did so effectively.
Islamist = corruption, nepotism and intolerance.

And here in this country Obama invites them into high places in our government and welcomes them into the White House with OPEN arms!! I guess "when one is one of them" that is what they do!!

Nice, Cal. Mention the middle east and righty is all over it. They're obsessed! I don't pay attention to the middle east. We have huge, Nazi problems at home.

We said as much from the start - how could anyone not see what the Muslim Brotherhood's agenda was. The Egyptian army was right to assume power and get rid of them once and for all. The M.B is not about democracy - rather autocracy....controlling the masses and killing those that oppose them in any way.

Moderate Muslims know much better than we what type of danger for the society the extremists and fanatics of Muslim Brotherhood represent for the society. When our own leaders will mature enough to understand that too!

Imagine that! Post an important article about the world’s most largest and most powerful terrorist Islamic group that has tried to disguise itself as moderate, and the present U.S. administration has supported richly and deeply, and which has numerous offices and sub-organizations in virtually every country in the world and there’s a reaction by C2NN readers!

Doesn’t everyone know that the box that says, “Please add your comment” means that you shouldn’t, especially if it isn’t as far left as Jason’s myopic and skewed world view that your moderate position becomes “righty” by the self-described arbiter of what constitutes positions on the political spectrum, whose arrogance knows no bounds?

Well, it’s good to know that for a person who can’t see anything beyond the left side of his head, knows everything that’s important and what should and should not be investigated or given an opinion on.

@ Stan B. Interesting Re: Turkish army comment .. Am I stretching.. things in suggesting my interest in how much the Military in USA will tolerate ?
I Believe every state should call Obama on a specific issue; the existence of jihadi camps in N. America.. if he refuses to deal with them federally , he should be put on notice.. states will do he cleanup themselves.
