Major Development: Jordan bans the radical Islamist “Muslim Brotherhood”.......
Epicenter ^ | 7/31/2020 | JOEL ROSENBERG

(Washington, D.C.) — The extremist and often violent global movement known as the Muslim Brotherhood has been dealt a severe blow as five judges in a top court in the Kingdom of Jordan decreed the organization illegal.

The Brotherhood is now being dissolved and will not be permitted to compete in Jordan’s upcoming November 10th parliamentary elections that were just announced.

A growing number of Arab countries Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain have banned the radical organization and branded them as terrorists......Turkey and Qatar, by contrast, actively support the Brotherhood, both financially and politically.

Senior Jordanian officials told me they have never viewed the group as moderate. They allowed it to register legally in 1946 and operate openly ever since. But this was not because its goals were compatible with Jordanian national security. Instead, they said that the objective had been to keep the Brotherhood above ground where it could be watched and monitored.

The Trump administration has been considering designating the group a terrorist organization – a move backed by a number of Evangelical leaders, myself included – but has not yet come to a decision.

I’ve always had a lot of respect for the Jordanian monarchy (at least the ones in my lifetime, Hussein and Abdullah).
They seem to be a lot saner than most of them over there.
And they seem to actually give a crap about their people.

They’ll just “re-brand” themselves, as Acorn did here in the US, and continue to operate under different names.

Well he’s a man that wants to get things done and is educated as well. That does make a difference. He also knows perfectly well it’s important to get along with the western world.

Big news. The only reason imho is that MB is not deemed a terrorist org and banned here is that the admin. is collecting names and making a list. They did that with Antifa- talked about it a year ago, and then finally about a month ago the DoJ officially labeled it a domestic terrorist org.

King Abdullah’s mother was American, he speaks English perfectly, and was educated in the US and IIRC trained in in mil. here. He is a fighter pilot.
