Rollback #1: Rep. Jeff Duncan Takes on the Muslim Brotherhood in the U.S.

Center for Security Policy  Aug 12, 2011 
By Frank Gaffney, Jr.
The Muslim Brotherhood’s growth in America has expanded greatly since the 1990s, with their stated goal “that their work in America is a kind of grand Jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and 'sabotaging' its miserable house by their hands.”   The Muslim Brotherhood’s plan to impose Shariah and censorship in America reaches into our media, our government, our military and law enforcement, our textbooks and our colleges.  Anyone who openly opposes the Muslim Brotherhood – that would be well over 200 million Americans, according to polls – has been labeled an “islamophobe” by the leftwing media.
Enough is enough.  Americans across the nation have started pushing back against the Muslim Brotherhood’s trademark intimidation and threats.  The Center for Security Policy is tracking these efforts to expose and to eliminate the Muslim Brotherhood’s  influence over  how we talk and think, how we govern ourselves and  enforce our laws, and how we make our own plans for our children’s future of freedom under the Constitution, not enslavement under Shariah law.  
We call it The Rollback.

As reported July 27, 2011 in The State Column, South Carolina:

South Carolina freshman Representative Jeff Duncan is no stranger to the anti-jihad movement in Congress. He first made his mark in the spring of 2011 on the national stage when as a member of the House Committee on Homeland Security Duncanwent after Islamic shariah law and declared it to be a threat to the U.S. Constitution.
More recently, in July 2011, Duncan authored and successfully introduced an amendment dubbed the “Muslim Brotherhood Amendment” to the Fiscal Year 2012 Foreign Relations Authorization bill (H.R. 2583). According to Duncan, this amendment will “ensure that no American tax dollars go to that [Muslim Brotherhood] organization.”

Congressman Jeff Duncan Introduces

Muslim Brotherhood Amendment 7/21/11

In his first year in Congress, Duncan has taken a clear and defined stance against Islamic radicalism within the United States. His tone against the Muslim Brotherhood has been well received by his constituents in South Carolina’s 3rd Congressional District. One fan on Duncan’s Facebook fan page had this to say: “Thank you very much for the work you are doing to get the Muslim Brotherhood out of the loop for Federal tax money. God Bless you and shield you from harm.” Another fan, had this to say: “It sure is refreshing to see  US Congressman stand up for what is right and protect our American values. Thanks for the amendment prohibiting MB funding with taxpayer dollars. Keep up the good work, we love it!”

However, Duncan, along with Members of Congress that subscribe to the same notion that the Muslim Brotherhood poses a threat to the United States, faces fierce opposition from national groups like the controversial for profit civil rights organization CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations).

According to a former intern at CAIR Nation Headquarters office in Washington D.C., the civil right group is directly tied to the Muslim Brotherhood in the United States. In a Texas court in 2007 FBI Special Agent Laura Burns testified that CAIR was listed as a member of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestine Committee. In the face of opposition by national groups it is clear that Rep. Duncan continues to move forward in his quest to end radicalism in America.
