Muslim Brotherhood established in Swedish total defense
May 2, 2020
In the shadow of the Corona crisis, the Muslim Brotherhood network of organizations has begun to establish cooperation with the defense forces’ civil society organizations. A consortium of ABF (Worker Education Association) and the Swedish Church, which again makes it clear the high level of the Brotherhood’s organization as well as communication skills. A capacity that has been built up over a long time.
Defense trainers are a nationwide voluntary defense organization, and their activity ranges from individual security to defense of the community. Defense trainers are responsible for recruiting, training, and writing up voluntary agreements for both defense forces and crisis readiness.
- Specialists such as caregivers, scouts, CBRN soldiers (Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear), who handle hazardous substances, field cooks and information officers for the Home Guard.
- Agreements for crisis readiness in order to increase stamina in case of crisis in, for example, communication, health protection, hazardous substances, or nuclear accidents.
Defense trainers are responsible for comprehensive activity within both Sweden’s defense and crisis readiness.
Together with the municipality of Huddinge, defense trainers arrange free digital training in crisis readiness for security. Training consists of three 15-minute films, and there are texts in Arabic, Kurdish, and Turkish as well as in Swedish sign language. The training is offered in cooperation with ABF Huddinge and the Swedish Church in Huddinge, as well as the Ibn Rushd Study Association.
The Ibn Rushd Study Association is one of the Muslim Brotherhood’s network organizations in Sweden. Through personal unions and activity, like for example, the now-defunct Muslim Family Days, there is a direct connection with the Islamic network. Mainly through the connections among Ibn Rushd, Sweden’s Young Muslims, and FIFS, (United Islamic Associations in Sweden), which constitute the links to, among others, the Muslim Brotherhood’s Egyptian organization as well as the Brotherhood’s ideological leader, Yussef al Qaradawi.
It is not only in Johan Westerholm’s “Islamism in Sweden” (Greycat 2020) where personal unions between the Muslim Brotherhood and Ibn Rushd are presented. Also, not least, that the Muslim Brotherhood rests upon a totalitarian and fundamentally fascist ideology.
Within the defense sectors, there is knowledge of this, and the Public Education Council has come to the same conclusion. The Public Education Council’s report on the Ibn Rushd Study Association by Professor Erik Amnå, “When Trust Is Tested”, comes to the same conclusion. Amnå points out earlier warning signals in the form of the report that FOI (Swedish Defense Research Agency) produced for the SST (Swedish Support to Faith Communities) authorities through Rickard Lagervall. This study concluded that the study association, at the founding of the organization, rested upon the Brotherhood’s ideological and theological interpretation of the Koran.
Since posting his first installment of this treatise, Seneca III has acquired new information, and thus is interleaving it here.
Signs and Portents Everywhere… But of What?

INTERLUDE — Party Politics in the raw, and Islamic angst ‘On Air’ in the time of Covid
In the comments to Part I, ‘K. from Germany’ pointed out an omission I had failed to notice whilst writing and proof-reading that article.
K. from Germany on May 3, 2020 at 2:55 am said:
“And there you will find no mention as to whom these paragons of rectitude are …” —
Follow the link they provided and then “membership” to arrive at this page:
Not at all suggesting they can’t be corrupted. This whole establishment is rotten to the core. But they wisened up on how to pull one over the public so it won’t be as simple as counting Mohammeds.
To which I replied:
Seneca III on May 3, 2020 at 12:55 pm said:
Thank you for that, K. I will include a correction in the part of the series I am working on at the moment. And, also, if I can find the time, I will have a quick look at each of the members — that could turn out to be very interesting or turn up nothing at all.
Depending on what turns up and if it is politically interesting, I may have to skip including such an analysis in the current work in progress, which is already structured in note form, and save it for a later edition. Rgds, S III.
This I have done, and it was indeed an eye opener.
The Petitions Committee
To begin: The Northern arc of occupied territories stretches roughly and somewhat intermittently from the Manchester-Liverpool conglomerate in the West on the shores of the Irish Sea to Tyneside in the East on the shores of the North Sea.
It is a rich hunting ground for the Paedophiliac Slaves of Allah seeking more gender slaves, or ‘Fresh Meat’ as Islam has been known to refer to white girl children and young Western women as a whole, so let us have a look at this area and the MPs who represent some of the constituencies in those lost lands, and who also serve on the Petitions Committee.
Naturally my first ports of call were to be the Labour MPs whose lucrative parliamentary sinecures rely heavily, in some places predominantly, on the Muslim vote. There are four of these Marxist-Socialist drones out of a total of eleven members on the committee, and whilst they are not a majority, they do constitute a substantial and influential voting bloc, and the ones that do not represent overwhelmingly Muslim constituencies would have no doubt voted with the others out of Party solidarity.
Those latter two outliers are:
1. Kerry MacCarthy, Labour, Bristol East
Demographically, Bristol is not yet a mini-Caliphate but it is quite well and variously enriched, and is so ‘Woke’ and in love with Multiculturalism that it rarely sleeps as it demonstrates how easy it is for a once homogeneous community to commit racial suicide.
2. Chris Evans, Labour, Islwyn
Islwyn is a Welsh Parliamentary constituency that seems to have escaped the attentions of the grooming fraternity. It is, however, one of the safest dyed-in-the-wool Labour seats in the country. It was once held by the party’s former leader Neil Kinnock, who served as opposition leader for nearly a decade until 1992 and then went off to become an EU commissioner and made a personal fortune in the process, as did his wife, Glenys Elizabeth Kinnock, Baroness Kinnock of Holyhead FRSA, who was a Labour Party Member of the European Parliament (MEP) from 1994 to 2009. Nice work if you can get it.
The hard-core vote whoring Dhimmis are:
Yesterday’s post about Spain included a video clip by the Spanish populist party Vox that highlighted the contrast between the official treatment of Christians and that of Muslims under the Wuhan Coronavirus restrictions.
After a public outcry, the authorities in El Vendrell were actually forced to do something — or pretend to do something — about Muslims who violated social-distancing regulations to swarm an imam who bellowed the call to prayer in the street.
The following two news videos report on the official response in El Vendrell. Many thanks to Pampasnasturtium for the translations, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling.

Here’s a useful summary of sharia in verse form.
Easy Guide to Sharia Law
by Michael Copeland
Stoning, flogging, amputation,
Schoolgirl genital mutilation,
Shootings in public, and hangings too,
The slitting of captives’ throats to view.
No freedom of conscience or freedom of speech,
Beheading for blasphemy happens for each.
Those who defect may be openly killed
By anyone else, and the law is fulfilled.
No tolerance ever for other faiths’ mission:
Killing enforces this strict prohibition.
Same-sex partners the law says slay,
Anyone freely can make it this way.
A father should kill his erring daughter,
Control is supreme: the sanction — slaughter.
Child brides of six, consummation at nine,
Sex-play with infants or beasts — all fine.
Short term marriage in exchange for rent,
Usable boys — no age of consent.
A man may marry four wives at a time,
And divorce them simply by quoting a rhyme.
A wife is a chattel to buy, beat, and use,
Obliged to submit, not allowed to refuse.
She may not go out of the house alone,
Or talk to a man who is not of her own.
Though a woman may testify all that she can
Her witness is rated half that of a man.
She’s only entitled to half the share
That a man will inherit if he is co-heir.
The cathedral of Lérida (Lleida in Catalan) in Catalonia was recently violated by five Muslims equipped with a powerful audio system from which they then broadcast the azan — the Muslim call to prayer.
Many thanks to FouseSquawk for translating this article from the Spanish news agency Europa Press. The translator notes: “The text in the article says that the loudspeakers were set up next to the cathedral, though the video shows they are at or on the cathedral.”
PP criticizes Lleida for permitting call to prayer during Ramadan
The press spokesman of the PP [Partido Popular/People’s Party] in Lleida [Lérida], Xavier Palau, has criticized the Town Hall for allowing the Muslim community of the city to install loudspeakers next to the Cathedral of Seu Vella for the call to prayer during Ramadan, the party announced in a statement this Saturday.
He declared that the Catholics of Lleida didn’t receive any type of concession during Holy Week, since religious rites and processions have been suspended due to the coronavirus, and he opined that this “demonstrates the sectarianism that the Town Hall defends.”
“It seems to us a violation of the fundamental rights of the city as a whole, because the loudspeaker installed in the highest building forces all the citizens to listen to the call,” and he said that it seems to impose a belief, in his words.

Muslim Brotherhood established in SIPRI
The Muslim Brotherhood’s network-and aid organizations reach an ever more established position within Swedish foreign policy sphere. As co-organizer with SIDA (Swedish International Development) and the Swedish Peace Research Institute, SIPRI, they are taking a larger place in Swedish foreign and security policies.
On 28 November 2019, SIDA arranged a breakfast seminar together with SIPRI and Islamic Relief on connections between peace-making work and humanitarian aid. The theme of the seminar was: “Implementation of the Humanitarian, Development, Peace Building Nexus”.
Islamic Relief is classified as a terrorist organization by the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Israel, among others. Most of its leading representatives have repeatedly expressed anti-Semitic views and values. The international banks, UBS (Union Bank of Switzerland) and HSBC (UK) have closed the organization’s accounts after funding from the terrorist organization, Hamas, was revealed.
Islamic Relief was represented by Dr. Paul Quinn and Dr. Sylvia Brown, who, among others, highlighted Islamic Relief’s activity in the Philippines. Brown pointed out Islamic Relief’s work in the inclusion of children and women, which is based in the Koran.
Islamic Relief is one of the Muslim Brotherhood’s two aid organizations, along with Muslim Aid. Both are found to be represented in Sweden. In the leadership of Islamic Relief is found the Islamic Union in Sweden’s chairman and ex-union rector, Omar Mustafa. Mustafa earlier represented Sweden as a participant in a business delegation to Azerbaijan. Among the leadership of Muslim Aid is found the former housing minister, Mehmet Kaplan (MP).
An active member of Muslim Aid Sweden was earlier sentenced to six months in prison for terror financing. The judgment was appealed to the Supreme Court but was upheld in the autumn of 2019.
Swedish Islamic Relief is currently involved in collaboration with the Swedish Church, which Ledarsidorna.se previously reported on.
That Islamic Relief Philippines is highlighted is interesting. For the US Dept. of Treasury, the American finance department responsible for the USA’s list of terrorist-connected organizations, Islamic Relief is an old acquaintance. In 2006, Islamic Relief Philippines was placed on the USA’s sanction list of terror organizations, in accordance with the US President’s Executive Order 13224, after being caught passing economic resources to two al Qaeda-connected organizations, Abu Sayyaf Group (ASG) and Jemaah Islamiyeh (JI).
As we saw yesterday, Germans who sit on a park bench for more than two minutes can expect to be issued a citation by the police and charged with a criminal offense. But Muslims — surprise! — are exempt from the social distancing regulations put in place to fight the Wuhan Coronavirus.

Below is a follow-up to last week’s translation of a French-language article about the Muslim Brotherhood in Belgium.
The Belgian Muslim Brotherhood Also Has Their Kuwait Connection
by Carel Brendel
February 27, 2016
The beauty of Blendle [Dutch online news platform] is that you come across unexpected articles in the media that are not seen every day. Last week, in the weekly Humo, I discovered an article about the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) in Belgium. It reveals that this movement in our southern neighbor (Belgium) can count on support from Kuwait.
Given, the “cup of chocolate” had a rather alarmist tone: “The Muslim Brothers want to take over Europe through Belgium.” I myself, for the time being, am more worried over the near-term goals of the Brothers. The re-Islamizing of Western Muslims, winning new converts, striving for influential positions in Muslim umbrella organizations, and influencing governments, municipalities, and European institutions, which often, are so naïve as to consider Muslim Brotherhood organizations as a mouthpiece for all Muslims.
The Humo article contains striking news. Thus, the author Raf Saviller revealed the existence of an organization in Antwerp, in which leading officials from Kuwait cooperate with the leadership of the Belgian MB. That is the European Center for Training and Education (ECTE), a “non-profit association” (vzw) that is located in a back street in the district of Borgerhout.
Humo received no answer from the Kuwaiti embassy to questions about the activities of ECTE. The mayor of Antwerp, Bart De Weyer, also gave no clarification. ECTE has no website and appears to engage in no activities in the area of training and education. That leads to the suspicion that the vzw (non-profit) is primarily established for the building of mosques and to support other MB activities.
The board’s composition points in this direction. Humo only named three board members. A document in the Belgische Staatsblad reveals that six Kuwaitis and three Belgians were involved in the establishment of ECTE. The nine appointed Adel al-Falah “undersecretary” of the Ministry of Awqaf (Islamic fund) and chairman of Islamic matters.
The vice chairman is Khalif al-Ezainah, “assistant undersecretary” for external relations for the same Kuwaiti Ministry of Religious Affairs. The treasurer is Mutlaq Alqarawi, also “assistant undersecretary”, but he has been retired for a few years. Alqarawi is known here as chairman of Europe Trust Netherlands (ETN), the Muslim Brotherhood’s real estate foundation. With support from Kuwait, they built the Blue Mosque in Amsterdam and purchased a space for the Social Cultural Center Foundation, Netherlands in the Hague (SSCCN). As known (except for the editors of Nieuwsuur — News Hour), ETN is also owner of the Dawah — Muslim outreach — Center of Middenweg in Rotterdam.
A fourth founder of ECTE was Waleed al-Ammar, head of foreign affairs for the Ministry of Religious Affairs. In 2013 he told Het Parool that Kuwait paid fees to three Dutch citizens involved with ETN: To Jacob van der Blom, leader of Dutch organizations for converts, founder of the De Middenweg Center, and since 2014 adjunct director of the Essalam Mosque in Rotterdam; to imam Yassin Elforkani, from 2010-2013 chairman of ETN; and to Kamis Gacha, ex-treasurer of ETN, leader of SSCCN and organizer of European Young Campers, which like the National Convert Day, has counted on Kuwaiti support over the years.
The following article is an updated version of one that was published by LibertyGB in 2014.
“I Renounced Islam”
by Michael Copeland
“I renounced Islam, so my family think I should die” is the heading of the article in the Telegraph by Harriet Alexander. The article illustrates the way readers’ thoughts can be subtly steered towards desired conclusions. Both the journalist and the featured ex-muslim woman she quotes have an interest in not directing the spotlight too strongly on Islam. They both know that this can be the excuse for “repercussions”.
Straight away in the heading there are two influences at work. First the spotlight is put on “my family”, influencing the reader away from supposing that the matter might have something to do with Islam — it is a family thing, you see. This is a standard deflection, often used. Secondly, the wording says, “I should die”. That is a slightly vague and open statement, a whole lot less dramatic than “I should be killed”.
Keeping attention on her family, the article goes on to say,“her family felt she deserved to die.” There you are: it was what they “felt”. The Western reader is inclined to consider that with some loving kind encouragement the family could be influenced to change their feelings. First feelings, then beliefs: “They believe you deserve to die”: the family “believe” this is what she deserves. Silently it is left open to the reader to hope that with the right pastoral care the family could be brought round to more charitable and humane beliefs. Nothing is offered to rule this out.
The pressure is on, though: we next learn that not just the family, but the community shares the same belief about leaving Islam: “within my community, that’s a capital offence,” she said. “They believe you deserve to die.” This is more demanding: there will have to be much more persuasion work done with the whole community to help them modify their beliefs. Steady! There is more detail: “In the eyes of the deeply-conservative Somali community… renouncing Islam was an act potentially punishable by death.” Now we know: it is the “deeply-conservative Somali” community. That is better: we can breathe a sigh of relief: it evidently does not include the presumed modern, fashionable part of the Somali community. Besides, look again, renouncing Islam is only “potentially” punishable by death. More sighs of relief: that really takes the pressure off, doesn’t it? “She is adamant that it is not a problem with Islam…” There you are: of course, it is not Islam: she is adamant. It is that deeply-conservative Somali community with its feelings and beliefs. The only snag is that the phrase “it is not a problem with Islam” has the ring of being a standard untrue disclaimer. As we shall see, this matter is indeed very much “a problem with Islam”.
Now that the pressure is removed we can be fed some handy distractions: “If you look at the Old Testament, there are some shocking things there.” This is another standard technique — “You lot do it, too” — known by its Latin name tu quoque, “you also”. Two observations are called for: firstly, just because certain other people may do the same does not alter the moral unacceptability of the action: it simply means there are others just as reprehensible: no difference is made to the objection. Secondly, in this specific case there is a flaw: the parallel fails to be a parallel. The Old Testament contains many old laws and accounts of killings. To adduce it as evidence is fatuous: it does not form part of British law. The Koran, in complete contrast, is ALL part of Islamic Law, which specifies the death penalty for denying any verse (Manual of Islamic Law o8.7(7)). Every command in the Koran has legal status. Similarly, every speech and action by Mohammed, as recorded in the traditions accepted as reliable, has legal status.
“But Jewish society realises that it’s no longer acceptable to stone someone to death, or to cut out their eyes, or enslave them. And the vast majority of Muslims realise that too.”
This puts the Western reader at ease, but it is another of those we’ve-heard-them-all-before excuses, putting Islam on a par with Judaism. The vast majority of Muslims may have good qualities, but what they realise makes no difference to Islam. Islam is not defined by what the vast majority of Muslims realise. Its teachings are derived from the Koran and the traditions, the Hadith, of what Mohammed did and said. As it happens, stonings, eye-gouging, and enslavements, all of which Mohammed took part in or commanded, do, indeed, continue in the Islamic world. Although not normally reported by the mainstream media, they can be found on the internet. Sometimes, as with the schoolgirls in Nigeria, slave-taking receives some publicity.
Actually, in the reality of Islamic law, there IS a problem with Islam. As the article itself mentions, Muhammad said, “Whoever changes his religion kill him.” His word is Islamic law. As a result the one who has renounced Islam, the “apostate”, has to be killed. This is not something that muslims may opt to “believe” or not. That question does not arise in Islam, which has no freedom of religion. Muslims cannot choose: they are instructed. “It is not fitting for a Believer, man or woman, when a matter has been decided by Allah and His Messenger to have any option about their decision”, says Koran 33:36. Islamic Law indeed commands death for anyone who leaves Islam. “Leaving Islam is the ugliest form of unbelief (kufr) and the worst”, says the Manual of Islamic Law (o8.0): “When a person… voluntarily apostatizes from Islam he deserves to be killed” (o8.1).
This is the second report on the Muslim Brotherhood in Switzerland; the one posted last month was from the Italian-speaking region of the country.
Muslim Brotherhood: Money flows in and through Switzerland
September 23, 2019
Reliable documents show how political Islam in Europe is strengthened. The clues also lead to Switzerland.
The illegal transport of money over the Swiss border; confusing financial networks and contracts, with which Islamic associations in Europe are awarded money — if they stick to backward conditions. An NGO which, under the cloak of charity, exports the fundamentalist views of the Muslim Brotherhood to Europe; connections to the power structure in Qatar.
The 90-minute “Arte — Documentation Qatar: Millions for European Islam” shows in detail how the Muslim Brotherhood wants to influence European Islam: It also shows that this is only possible because European nations do not provide the means for their Muslim citizens to practice their religion.
Switzerland is also an issue: With the help of leaked documents, Arte shows that the Muslim Brotherhood is not only active in Switzerland, but uses it as a transfer location for financial help.
“Qatar Charity” Doubtful Charity
The central actor of the documentation is the Qatari NGO “Qatar Charity”. Qatar’s largest aid agency was established in 1992 and is active in over 70 countries worldwide. Soon it gained a reputation for being closely tied to the power structure in Qatar — and for exporting the goals of the Muslim Brotherhood into other countries. To do this, it would use the contributions of conservative Muslims, who fulfill their zakat duty: They are obligated to hand over a certain proportion of their assets to the needy and other designated groups of people. Moreover, among the financiers of Qatar Charity are counted powerful and financially strong individuals.
Since 2014 Qatar Charity has been accused of “under-the-cloak humanitarian aid, financing radical Islamic groups” by Egypt, Bahrain, the UAE and Saudi Arabia. Qatar’s ruling family, the Al-Thani clan, is allegedly involved. The ruling elite of the emirate in fact denies all accusations. Qatar Charity is an independent organization with no direct connections to the State. The Emir of Qatar, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, defended himself against the accusation that Qatar Charity finances jihadism and political Islam. Moreover, Qatar also denies any financial engagement in Europe.
The accusation that Qatar finances Islamist groups, especially from Saudi Arabia, is hypocritical. Although the desert state is fighting the MB and Qatar, it itself supports terrorist jihadists, extreme fundamentalist Wahhabis and their mosques.
The Muslim Brotherhood System: Illustration via the Privot Case
May 20, 2016
by Willy Wolsztain
More a religious political sect than a spiritual movement, founded in 1928 by the Egyptian Hassan al-Banna, the Muslim Brotherhood carries a totalitarian vision of the religion. In Europe they are attempting to Islamize society in a gradual manner, with their ultimate end the installation of a worldwide caliphate. In order to grasp their true nature, it is enough to observe up close the Muslim Fair of Brussels (FMB), one of their flagship annual events, along with the Moslem Expo (Antwerp) and the Muslim Expo (Charleroi).
Promotion of the female Muslim dress code, segregation of men and women during conferences, omnipresent prayers, Koranic rants. At the FMB there reigns an atmosphere of obscurantism, bigotry and conservatism. There the Aksahum Foundation supports the charitable works of Hamas. One can hear the diatribes of hate against Shi’ite Islam (Hassan Iquiousson at the FMB 2015). Anti-Semitic preachers are invited (FMB 2104, Muslim Expo, Charleroi 2016) Works by Youssef al-Qaradawi, the notorious leading thinker and spiritual guide of the Brotherhood, are distributed.
The founding father Hassan al-Banna always present
The ideology that permeates the Muslim Fair is inspired directly by the founding father, Hassan al-Banna. See his 1947 manifesto with its 50 programmed points. One will note in passing how many ideas also influence the Islamic political pressure in Europe (claims on the Islamic veil, segregation between the sexes, family law, censorship of media and art, etc.) A prophetic microcosm, the Fair prefigures the ideal macrocosm according to the Brotherhood, the exact opposite of a liberal Islam open to the values of individual liberty, democracy, humanism and progress.
We examine the Brotherhood career of the Islamologist Michael Privot. We have already dealt with his case elsewhere. In an exemplary manner, it illustrates the “Leninist perspective of taking control”, put into practice by the Brotherhood, to use the happy formula of the Egyptian historian, Tewfik Aclimandos.
A completely unusual approach for a member of the Brotherhood, Michael Privot carried out a Brotherhood “coming out” in 2008. In perfect contrast to the spectacle of the Muslim Fair, Privot presents the European Muslim Brotherhood, self-styled as “fed up with the virtues of democracy, human rights, the nation of laws and responsible citizenship”. Interviewed eight years later after having said he slammed the Brotherhood door, he gave us the same angelic serenade. He shows “the tip of the ear”, however. “One has to take the example of Millî Görüş.” Millî Görüş, the Turkish Islamist movement, conservative, totalitarian, close in spirit to the Muslim Brotherhood. Since 2012, Michael Privot claims to have broken with the Brotherhood. In truth, that is false. Right up to today he remains closely tied to the active Brotherhood structures in Belgium. And here is the proof.
According to a 2008 American report, “The Muslim Brotherhood in Belgium”, Michael Privot co-chaired the Forum of European Muslim Youth and Students Associations (FEMYSO), one of the top organizations linked to the Brotherhood. In 2004, he entered the administrative council of the Educational Islamic Cultural Complex of Verviers — Assahaba Mosque (CECIV) as treasurer, a few months after the establishment of this non-profit. In 2007 he became vice secretary. He only left the board of the CECIV at the beginning of 2015. Not without leaving behind him a person of confidence, namely Julie “Noor” Pascoet, who joined the board at the end of 2014 as secretary. She joined Hajib El Hajjaji see below, who then sat on the board of CECIV since 2010, as well as Frank “Amin” Hensch, president and imam of CECIV. Pascoet is also a close collaborator of Privot at the head of ENAR (European Network Against Racism), which he leads in a professional role. She worked for Islamic Relief Worldwide, a very important international charitable NGO linked to the Muslim Brotherhood.
The following article concerns the Muslim Brotherhood’s use of Luxembourg as a financial hub. It’s from 2018, but still relevant — the situation has not changed in the interim.
Investigation: Luxembourg, the fiscal paradise of the Muslim Brotherhood?
June 14, 2018
If Switzerland is known to have been a rear base of the Muslim Brotherhood, Luxembourg, on the other hand, has long been ignored. However, historically the Grand Duchy has played a central role in the financial strategy of this organization.
Luxembourg has become one of the strongholds of worldwide Islamic finance, and its authorities boast about it: “As the second largest world center for funds and host of the world’s principal stock exchange for stock securities, Luxembourg is today a key center for the development of Islamic finance in Europe,” stated Tom Theobald, Luxembourg’s deputy director general for finance at the end of 2017.
It is true that the publicity and lobbying carried out around this “Islamic finance” lends credence that this “finance” might be cleaner, more ethical because it is religious! In the name of God, is it less neo-liberal or less opaque? Nay. Such affirmations are absurd at best and at worst deceiving.
In reality, however, the valuation of this so-called new market quite simply hides the financial infiltration strategy of the Muslim Brotherhood and certain Gulf countries.
A project under construction for over 40 years…
In 2005 the Swiss journalist Sylvain Besson published a remarkable work, “The conquest of the West”, which everyone unfortunately forgot, and would be good to update.
In this book, the investigator-journalist recalls that after the attacks on September 11, the Swiss police conducted a search at the home of Youssef Nada, the chairman of a group named al-Taqwa, which was suspected of having financed al-Qaeda. In Nada’s house, the police seized an exceptional document, which had to do with “Project” of the Muslim Brotherhood, written in 1981. This document established the global strategy of the Brotherhood and more specifically, that which was envisioned for Europe.
During a second search of the offices of al-Taqwa, investigators found another document fascinatingly titled “Financial Strategy of the Muslim Brotherhood”.
This edifying text details the financial structures created by the leaders of the Brotherhood during the 1970s, thanks to funds principally coming from the Gulf countries.
The central position of Luxembourg is clearly exposed in the first pages. “The Islamic International Bank of Luxembourg is the principal entity that directs and controls all other institutions. ARINCO, an affiliated entity, manages the long-term investments.” And here we are!
In the following video Muslim women in India are asked their opinion about the ChiCom virus. All of them are delighted that Allah has sent it to punish the infidels.
Also, they’re obviously unconcerned about social distancing, because they know they can only catch the coronavirus if Allah wills it.
