Has the Muslim Brotherhood infiltrated US Congress?

Linda Sarsour with Rashida Tlaib

A tweet circulated the social media raised a serious question about the extent of Muslim Brotherhood influence inside the US congress.

A Palestinian-American activist shared a suspicious post questions the affiliations of the two Muslim congresswomen (Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib), where she posted her picture with the two congresswomen, praising the Muslim Brotherhood’s existing at the Congress.

“Yo the Muslim Brotherhood knows how to parrrttaaay [party]! So much for radical Islamists taking over! If these r [are] – they r [are] da [the] coolest #Jan25 #Egypt” said Linda Sarsour, who defines herself as Palestinian-American-Muslim and civil rights activist


The tweet, that has been later removed, triggered huge controversy among tweeps as they wondered about the role MBs play inside the lawmaking circle in the US, and whether they have a special agenda to implement inside the congress.

Ilhan Abdullahi Omar is a Somali American politician from Minnesota, who sworn in as a congresswoman on Jan. 3, to become the first woman with hijab to become a lawmaker. The other Muslim woman is Rashida Tlaib, Palestinian-American who was filmed attacking Trump, vowing to impeach him, hours later the swearing in ceremonies.
