Clarion Project launches petition against MB in US
Mon, Dec. 25, 2017
CAIRO – 25 December 2017: The Clarion Project, a non-profit organization, issued a campaign to collect signatures regarding talking action against Muslim Brotherhood members in the United States.
According to a statement published on the organization’s website on December 24, "the Clarion Project is launching a petition to tell President Donald Trump that there is no place for the Muslim Brotherhood and enforced sharia in the United States."
The statement referred to the United Kingdom’s decision on December 22 to include Hasm movement and Islamist militant group Revolution Brigade (Lewaa Al-Thawra) in the list of terrorist organizations.
The British government stated this after reviewing the evidence of attacks carried out by both Hasm and Lewaa Al-Thawra against the Egyptian security personnel, where they concluded that these groups met the prohibitions to qualify them as terrorist organizations. The inclusion of these terrorist organizations in the list would enhance the ability of the UK government to disrupt their activities.
"We have said that we will not leave Egypt alone in its fight against terrorism. We are using today's full legal force against two terrorist organizations that have killed many Egyptians ... This will strengthen our common efforts to eradicate terrorism and the ideologies that feed it. I am confident that our steadfast societies will defeat these toxic groups," the British Ambassador to Cairo John Casson stated.
The Washington, D.C.-based organization further added in its statement that most of the political analysts note that the Muslim Brotherhood is pushing for a more violent global agenda.
Lately, Hasm has been associated with most of the terrorist attacks that have occurred in Egypt during the last year. Hasm is supposedly linked to the Muslim Brotherhood, a group which is deemed illegal in Egypt.
Lewaa Al-Thawra group announced its formation on August 21, 2016, when it uploaded pictures and a dramatized video of an attack on a security checkpoint in Menoufia governorate that left two policemen dead. Lewaa Al-Thawra’s formation has been welcomed by Hasm.
