Gamaat Islamiya Terrorist Organization Now Removed from Terror Watch List. Another Biden Betrayal

Gamaat Islamiya is the organization of the “Blind Sheikh” who was said to be the mastermind of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing that killed 7 Americans. He died in prison, so the Biden administration is removing the group from the terror watch list in spite of its connections to al-Qaeda and ISIS. Secretary of State Antony Blinken says it’s being removed because it’s a “defunct” group…but it isn’t, it simply “rebranded” itself.

“The circumstances that were the basis for the designation…have changed in such a manner to warrant revocation of the designation.”

Morphing to an Islamist Political Party… something which no one in the Biden/Obama administration bothered to check. They appear to be hoping for another “Arab Spring” (which was a total disaster last time) so they can support the Jihadists. except that Gamaat Islamiya and its buddies are extremely vicious- in 1997 they massacred 62 European and Japanese tourists in Luxor, Egypt, dismembering and disemboweling them. This new rebranding of the group has never disavowed their actions.

“… Gamaat Islamiya isn’t defunct, it just morphed into an Islamist political party that the Obama and Biden administrations want to see ruling over Egypt alongside the Muslim Brotherhood.

The Building and Development Party has never disavowed its own atrocities and continues treating the Blind Sheikh as a role model. It was banned by the Egyptian government during the wave of terror that followed the popular overthrow of the Muslim Brotherhood regime.

Indeed, the State Department’s latest human rights report on Egypt complains about the ban on the Islamist party. Previously, the Egyptians could have retorted that the party had been listed as a terror group by the United States. Biden is conveniently removing that argument…

The delisting of Gamaat Islamiya betrays those seven Americans, born and unborn, who were killed during the original World Trade Center bombing as well as every innocent victim murdered by the terror group and its allies.

Biden’s treasonous actions disrespect the memories of American men and women like John DiGiovanni, a sales manager, who was parking his car when the bomb in the World Trade Center went off, Stephen Knapp, a father of two on his lunch break, and Monica Rodriguez Smith, who was seven months pregnant and was on her last day of work before taking maternity leave.

Obama allowed the head of the “Building and Development Party,” Hani Nour Eldin, into the US to meet with high level members of his administration. The “Building and Development Party” is looking forward to being “legal again.” We’re not.
