CAIR: Cruz's Muslim Brotherhood Bill Not About Terrorism
by John Rossomando
Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz's bill seeking to classify the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist group is discriminatory leaders of the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) claimed at a press conference Wednesday.
"We believe it has little to do with national security or terrorism," CAIR's spokesman Ibrahim Hooper said.
He sees Cruz's bill as part of a two-step strategy to designate the Muslim Brotherhood and attack groups and their leaders who "Islamophobes have falsely labeled as linked to the Muslim Brotherhood."
Hard evidence, however, links CAIR and other American Islamist groups to the Brotherhood.
