A petition to the US administration to declare the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist group has gathered 120,000 signatures as of 5pm on Tuesday.

The petition was created on 7 July and gathered more than a hundred thousand signatures in less than a month.

The petition, offered by We the People portal on the White House website stated that the Brotherhood had a long history of violence and terrorism against its opponents.

It also accused the Brotherhood of having direct ties with terrorist groups such as Hamas.

“The Muslim Brotherhood has shown in the past few days that it is willing to engage in violence and killing of innocent civilians in order to invoke fear in the hearts of its opponents,” the petition read. “This is terrorism.”

The petition stated that Sayyid Qutb, a prominent Brotherhood leader authored a book called Maalim fi Al-Tareeq (Milestones) which is considered a manual for many terrorist groups.

We the People allows for the creation and signing of petitions to address the US government. In order to receive a response from the administration, a petition must first pass through two thresholds.

The first of these involves gathering 150 signatures within 30 days from the date the petition was created. It then must gather 100,000 signatures within the next 30 days.

Although the We the People homepage says it is “giving all Americans a way to engage their government on the issues that matter to them”, the petitions are not restricted to US citizens.

A whitehouse.gov account is all that is needed to be able to create and sign petitions.

The petition called on the Obama administration to declare the Brotherhood a terrorist group for a “safer future for all of us.”

Another prominent group, Al-Jamaa Al-Islamiya, has been listed as a terrorist organisation by the US since 1997. The group, represented in Egypt by their political wing, the Building and Development Party, had called on the US to be removed from this list in May.

    The brotherhood is the one that being hunted and killed! And they are fighting for democracy but are being massacred by the army and police! Your response was “oh lets make a petition to label the victims as terrorist!” Thanks, I’m sure this is gonna be helpful. And 120, 000 people signed that? Wow, just wow

      “It is the nature of Islam to dominate, not to be dominated, to impose its law on all nations, and to extend its power to the entire planet.” Hasan L-Banna, founder of the Muslim Brotherhood

      • Arif Safwan Abdullah

        Thanks for replying. The brotherhood is not like what you quoted. They actually have done almost nothing about “to impose its law on all nations etc”. Here some neutral source.
        “Despite considerable legislative and executive powers, they have passed almost no “Islamic” legislation, with the exception of a law on Islamic bonds,”
        You can read the full article here. http://www.foreignpolicy.com/articles/2013/05/08/morsy_and_the_muslims

        For islam itself, it’s already written in the quran “There shall be no compulsion in [acceptance of] the religion.” Al-baqarah:256

          You are a great example of the lies promoted by MB. You can lie in an article too, meathead. MB is a sick collection of dirty stinky ole uneducated animals pretending to be civilized men. They love their young boys and abuse their young girls.

            Lol, you mad bro :D?

        Don’t forget the Westborough Baptist Church imposing their hate to everyone. I’m a Baptist, but I don’t agree with them.

    • Delta Rain

      I’m a terrorist too. America says all Americans are now suspected terrorist. I guess we better get another list started…

    • Sam Boulis

      What democracy the Brother Hoodlums are fighting for?, would it be the Islamist fascism(democracy)?

  • Ronit Jacobs

    Good! The US’s ridiculous support for the MB was the most treacherous policy yet. The MB’s goal of a world-wide caliphate, which they do not bother to hide, must be taken seriously and stopped. People are waking up to the truth. I guess it’s better late than never.

    • Delta Rain

      Some people (sheeple) just like to hate.

    Good time to go thru the Gaffney 10 part course on the MB in America. On youtube. See just how much of our government is infiltrated by MB. Invited in most cases. We’ve been trustingly stupid. Time to say enough of their BScrap.

    • Delta Rain

      We should just trust our spying, government. NSA isn’t infiltrating anybody? CIA ? They bring in the terrorist, train the terrorist and then act so surprised like 9-11. Wait, wasn’t George having dinner with Bin Laden a few months before that happened? Seems that the Bushes had a lot of special dinner guests. Ask Regan, he met one of them…. Brady did too. Let’s scrape all of it. We shouldn’t be choosy.

      • Sam Boulis

        George Bush had dinner with Osama Bin Laden? hey fellow, you should seek some Psychiatric treatment, you really need it!

    And let’s not forget that Tea Party group. Why don’t we just say anyone who dares to protest should be shot? Oh, that’s already happening. And don’t forget the CIA snipers with their scopes aimed at the Tea Party demonstration and the Wall Street demonstration. Yes, terrorist seems to be the trendy, new word for anybody who dares to speak up. Meanwhile America is in bed with Al Qaeda… Or is it Taliban? I get confused because we seem to be funding both groups. Actually, I am committing a terrorist act right now because I’m daring to speak my mind. Soon we will all be terrorist and nothing will be left on this earth but the drones.

    • Sam Boulis

      Delta rain, I think you are a confused guy, you are all over the place accusing the United States of being in bed with Al Qaeda, perhaps the Taliban, Tea party or what have you, actually you are not making sense, now you are a committed terrorist. Oh well congratulation who ever you are, you gibbered too much!

  • Delta Rain

    But really? All sarcasm put aside. This is the most stupid and hateful petition I have ever seen. And the people who post on here? You all act as if you’re on some cloud of justice and self-rightous court scene? Do any of you ever meander out in the world? What would any of you do if you found yourself in a position with your back against the wall and bullets and hate in front of you because you want your freedom to speak? How many of you would stand taller and how many would cower and give up? I’ve already figured out that answer.

    Here is why it is important to stop the Muslim Brotherhood in America and Shariah/Islamic law. Common Core + Muslim Brotherhood + Tariq Ramadan (Director of the Research Centre of Islamic Legislation and Ethics (CILE) + Vartan Gregorian (The Qatar Foundation International) + President Obama’s White House Fellowships Commission + Weather Underground terrorist William Ayers + Department of State + U.S.
    Department of Education + Obama’s June 2009 Cairo speech “create a new online network, so a young person in Kansas can communicate instantly with a young person in Cairo.” + Al Jazeera (founder: Sheikh Hamad bin Thamer Al Thani) Muslim Brotherhood in America’s plan to destroy America and form a global caliphate + Muslim Brotherhood in America infiltrated White House and entire Obama administration + IG officers refuse to investigate Muslim Brotherhood involvement in agency when five congressional representative request it + House RINO/GOP leadership/followers refuse to investigate anything that involves Shariah/Islamic law + American Library Association teaching librarians how to push Islam + NSA spying on citizens + Illegal alien from Middle East infiltrates FBI and CIA without being caught + Weak background
    investigations for Top Secret clearances + Obama purged reference to Islam from FBI, DOD, DHS training materials + Military being sent overseas fight and die installing Shariah/Islamic law + Unconstitutional spending which creates almost $16 trillion debt + House and Senate violating Constitution + Supreme Court violating Constitution + Muslim Brotherhood creed: “Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our
    leader. Qur’an is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of
    Allah is our highest hope.”= I see no problem here! Move along folks, move along!
