Media overlooks that many Arab countries have already designated Muslim Brotherhood as terrorist

NY Times:

Talk of Criminalizing Muslim Brotherhood Alarms Arab Allies

Experts say a sweeping indictment could have serious implications for domestic politics, American diplomacy and the broader fight against Islamist extremism.
The Muslim Brotherhood is one of the original Islamist supremacy organizations.  Its charter appears to support genocide against Israeli Jews.  It has already been designated as a terrorist organization in Egypt where it was born as well as several other Arab states. The opposition to naming them as a terrorist organization appears to be based on the notion that they don't mean what they say about their own goals.

If they become more overtly terrorist after the designation, they only confirm the original analysis of those who wanted them designated as terrorists.
