Groups representing the persecuted Christians of the Middle East are urging support for the Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act. The legislation is now supported by over 50 members of Congress and you can use the Clarion Project‘s form to contact your representatives in less than one minute.

Three Assyrian Christian organizations—the American Mesopotamian Organization, the Middle East Christian Committee and the Assyrian Genocide and Research Center are calling it a “historic opportunity to strike a blow against one of the Middle East’s oldest and most vicious organizations—the Muslim Brotherhood.”

Coptic Solidarity is also rallying its supporters behind the bill. Its president, Alex Shalaby, said, “Coptic Solidarity calls on all who support civil rights, democracy, and religious freedom to take action on this campaign. A terrorist designation against the Muslim Brotherhood is not just a Coptic issue, but one that affects the welfare of all Egyptians.”

The group’s statement also said that the Muslim Brotherhood “is the head of several subsidiary terrorist organizations in the Middle East, Europe and North America.”

As the Clarion Project has repeatedly documented, the Brotherhood and its supporters have instigated, allowed and participated in the persecution of Egyptian Coptic Christians.

The Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act mentions how over 70 churches and 1,000 Coptic homes and businesses were set on fire by Brotherhood supporters after the Egyptian government cracked down on the Islamist protests in 2013. The evidence shows that the Brotherhood planned for the protests to become violent even though an Egyptian government review admitted that its security forces responded to the provocations and attacks inappropriately.

The legislation also says the Brotherhood has engaged in “direct incitement” through its social media outlets and statements from its officials. It cites the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom’s report in 2013 that said, “Coptic Christians face ongoing violence from vigilante Muslim extremists, including members of the Muslim Brotherhood, many of whom act with impunity.”
