REVEALED: MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD’S UK NETWORK
ABU DHABI, 19th June, 2014 (WAM/UPI) — The Abu-Dhabi based daily, The National, has today published an exclusive report revealing links between media attacks on the U.A.E. and U.K.-based connections to the Muslim Brotherhood.
According to the report, at the end of last month, the Guardian newspaper in London published an advertisement that was essentially an appeal on behalf of the Muslim Brotherhood.
In the form of an open letter to the Prime Minister, David Cameron, it was signed by more than 50 people from all walks of life and from several faiths and political persuasions.
The paper added that text of the letter was a response to an inquiry ordered by the British government into the activities in Britain of the Muslim Brotherhood, designated a terrorist organisation by Saudi Arabia in March this year, a decision supported by the U.A.E..
While the organisation has operated legally in the U.K. for more than four decades, its ranks have been swelled recently by senior members who fled Egypt after the ousting last July of president Mohammed Morsi.
The purpose of the inquiry is to examine if the Brotherhood has any links to violent extremism and, if proved, whether controls are needed over its activities in the U.K..
The advertisement was placed by the Cordoba Foundation, a London-based organisation whose stated aim is to promote interfaith dialogue but which also has close ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and actively campaigns on its behalf.
The foundation s director, Anas Altikriti, has mounted a campaign against the British inquiry in recent weeks, claiming that the U.K. is bowing to pressure from a group of foreign governments, including the U.A.E., to effectively outlaw its activities.
In an interview with the Qatar-based Al Jazeera TV network in April, Mr. Altikriti accused Russia, Syria, Saudi Arabia and the U.A.E. of being in “a club that has moved to ban the Muslim Brotherhood,” with Britain being pushed towards “becoming part of that club”. Those allegations are repeated in The Guardian s open letter, which claims the U.K. inquiry is the result of “pressure” by the U.A.E. and Saudi Arabia.
