This bill would convey the sense of Congress that the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) meets the criteria for classification as a foreign terrorist organization and that the secretary of state should designate it as such. Failing that, the secretary would be required to submit a report providing an explanation to Congress within 60 days of the bill’s passage. The bill also called for sanctions against any person who ‘knowingly provide[s] material support or resources’ to the organization, authorized denying visas to MB members and their removal from the U.S., and required any U.S. financial institution that knowingly administers MB funds to report to the U.S. Treasury.
In the bill’s nonbinding clauses, Hamas is mentioned numerous times, specifically as a foreign terrorist organization.
