(CNSNews.com) - Rep. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.) claimed “it’s astonishing” that President Obama never makes mention of the Muslim Brotherhood and their control of the Egyptian government.
“He never mentions the Muslim Brotherhood. It’s astonishing. If there’s anything that has been a trend in this administration related to terrorism, it’s their unwillingness to call it for what it is,” Franks told CNSNews.com immediately following Obama’s State of the Union address Tuesday night.
Franks also views the Muslim Brotherhood as a threat not only to the security of Israel but to the entire world.
“And the Muslim Brotherhood has gained control of the reins of government in Egypt. It’s that fundamentally simple,” he said. “And it represents not only a threat to Israel and other nations in the region – it represents a destabilizing factor and force in the whole world.”
