A new petition on the White House website asks the administration to declare the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization.

The request was posted on on July 7 and quickly garnered more than the 100,000 signature requirement for the Obama administration to officially consider the request.

“Declare Muslim Brotherhood organization as a terrorist group”, was written within days of Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi, who drew much of his support from the group, being removed from power by the military in early July.

The petition states, “Muslim Brotherhood has a long history of violent killings & terrorizing opponents. Also MB has direct ties with most terrorist groups like Hamas.

“The Muslim Brotherhood has shown in the past few days that it is willing to engage in violence and killing of innocent civilians in order to invoke fear in the hearts of its opponents. This is terrorism,” the petition reads.

“We ask the US government to declare MB as a terrorist group for a safer future for all of us.”

The administration has remained relatively quiet about the Brotherhood’s recent methods in Egypt while Morsi was in power.
