Not Blacklisting Muslim Brotherhood Carries Risk

In a January 26 Wall Street Journal article titled “Blacklisting Muslim Brotherhood Carries Risk,” Yaroslav Trofimov writes that the Trump administration’s proposed designation of the Brotherhood as a terrorist group “could trigger a slew of unexpected consequences” due to its “millions of supporters.” He then further defends the group by quoting supporters who proudly testify to its nonviolence. Both claims – that the Brotherhood is popular and nonviolent – are deeply misleading.
