Designating the Muslim Brotherhood as a Terrorist Entity by Tom Quiggan


Hassan al Banna, the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood, made the role of the organization clear: "It is the nature of Islam to dominate, not to be dominated, to impose its law on all nations and to extend its power to the entire planet." Domination, of course, implies coercion, and coercion implies the use of violence. The greater point about the Muslim Brotherhood is that in its quest for domination, it is either violent or not yet violent. For this reason, it should be designated as a terrorist entity.
