The United Kingdom just designated two Muslim Brotherhood groups as terror organizations. British Ambassador to Cairo Johan Casson said December 22 that Hasm and Liwa Al-Thawra are now proscribed terrorist organizations. Hasm is the Egypt-based, armed wing of the Brotherhood.
While most Muslim Brotherhood terror is carried out in Egypt and by Hamas based in the Gaza Strip, the Brotherhood has Washington, D.C. firmly in its political cross-hairs. There’s also a growing feeling among analysts that elements within the Brotherhood are pushing a more violent global agenda.
