A "We the People" petition demanding the Obama administration declare the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist group has gathered nearly 124,000 signatures.
"[The] Muslim Brotherhood has a long history of violent killings & terrorizing opponents," the petition, created on July 7, states. "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 continues.
In order to receive a public response from the White House, a petition must gather 150 signatures within 30 days from the date the petition was created. It then must gather 100,000 signatures within the next 30 days, the Egypt Daily News reported.
