Canadian media is reporting that the Canadian federal government is being pressured to declare the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization. According to a Toronto Sun report:
MONTREAL — The federal government is coming under increased pressure to declare the Muslim Brotherhood a terror outfit, as more evidence piles up that the group has tentacles in Canada.
Its two main offshoots, Hamas and Egyptian Islamic Jihad, are listed as terrorist organizations in Canada.
The last Canadian organization to be added to the list is the alleged Hamas fundraiser IRFAN-Canada, which has worked closely with the Brotherhood, according to an RCMP warrant.
A source tells QMI that the Brotherhood itself, long considered the ideological godfather of Islamist terrorism, has also been under close watch by security officials.
A QMI investigation found that top Brotherhood leaders have lived in Canada for decades. They have led pro-Sharia organizations and sent money and resources to groups that the RCMP and the Canada Revenue Agency say are owned or controlled by Hamas.
Brotherhood-linked facilities have invited extremist speakers to Canada who defended child suicide bombers, amputation for thieves and stoning for adulterers.
A U.S. terror financing trial heard a secret Brotherhood plan for North America calling for a ‘grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and sabotaging its miserable house.’
Stockwell Day, who served in Stephen Harper’s cabinet for five years, tells QMI that Islamist ideology is being propagated in Canada by Brotherhood ‘sympathizers.’

The GMBDW reported in January on a French-language article which discussed the links of ten Islamic institutions in Quebec tied to what is called “the international network of the Muslim Brotherhood.”
The Canadian media article referenced identifies Jamal Badawi as a noted Muslim scholar, speaker and television host who “insisted his links to the Brotherhood are ‘a myth’ and that ‘there’s no Muslim Brotherhood in Canada.’ In fact Dr. Badawi, who likely was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt before emigrating to Canada, is a leader in many of the most important Global Muslim Brotherhood organizations including the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR Canada), the Fiqh Council of North America, the Muslim American Society (MAS), the European Council for Fatwa and Research and the International Union of Muslim Scholars. Documents released during the Holy Land Foundation terrorism financing trial indicate that he was (and probably still is), a member of the leadership structure of the US Muslim Brotherhood.
