The Egyptian government has declared the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist group Wednesday, blaming the group for a suicide bomb attack that killed 16 people and wounded more than 100 at a police headquarters. As a result, membership in the group has now become a criminal offense. Egypt’s military-backed government has been fighting the Muslim Brotherhood since a military coup toppled former Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi.

Egypt’s Minister of Higher Education Hossam Eissa gave a formal Cabinet statement declaring “the Muslim Brotherhood group and its organization as a terrorist organization..It’s not possible for Egypt the state nor Egypt the people to submit to the Muslim Brotherhood terrorism.”

    Here in the United States our own president Barak Obama is a member of the Muslim Brotherhood. This fact alone is evidence that Barak Obama tolerates and endorses terrorism. As such he is an un-American and satanic example who is a shameful role model to us law-abiding and patriotic U.S. citizens.
