A subcommittee on national security in the House of Congress is holding a hearing on the threat of the Muslim Brotherhood to the United States and its interests and how to effectively counter it.

As the subcommittee notes:

“The Muslim Brotherhood is a radical Islamist organization that has generated a network of affiliates in over 70 countries. The Brotherhood has been designated as a terrorist organization by multiple countries including Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. The United States has designated multiple Muslim Brotherhood affiliates as terrorist organizations, including Hamas.”

Most recently, the State Department designated two Brotherhood-affiliates — HASM and Liwa al-Thawra — and Hamas’ political leader Ismail Haniyeh, as Specifically Designated Global Terrorists (SDGT) under an executive order.
