After More Than a Year, This Is the White House's Response to a Petition to Declare the Muslim Brotherhood a Terrorist Group
by Fred Lucas
After more than a year, the White House finally responded to an online petition asking that the Muslim Brotherhood be declared a terrorist organization, and the answer is no.
"We have not seen credible evidence that the Muslim Brotherhood has renounced its decades-long commitment to non-violence," the White House said in response to a "We the People" petition that garnered 213,146 signatures — more than twice the 100,000-signature threshold to trigger a response.
The petition, which called for declaring the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist group, was first posted July 7, 2013 and reached 100,000 signatures within 30 days.
