Egypt Declares Muslim Brotherhood a 'Terrorist Organization' Following Deadly Bombing of Police Headquarters

The declaration criminalizes membership, activities and financing to the group

AP has the video report and the footage of the bombing at the police HQ that killed 16, wounded more than 100, and left scores buried under the rubble

It would be great if the rest of the world, including the Obama Adm. came to the same conclusion about the Brotherhood. 


Fox News reported
CAIRO – Egypt's military-backed interim government on Wednesday declared the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist group, criminalizing all its activities, its financing and even membership to the group from which the country's ousted president hails.

The announcement is a dramatic escalation of the fight between the government and group, which has waged near-daily protests since the July 3 popularly backed military coup that toppled President Mohammed Morsi. Hossam Eissa, the Minister of Higher Education, read out the Cabinet statement after long meeting, saying:

 "The Cabinet has declared the Muslim Brotherhood group and its organization as a terrorist organization."

He said that the decision was in response to Tuesday's deadly bombing targeting a police headquarters in a Nile Delta city which killed 16 people and wounded more than 100.

 The Brotherhood has denied being responsible for Mansoura attack and an al-Qaida inspired group has claimed responsibility for the suicide bombing on Wednesday.
