According to a report by the Egyptian newspaper Al-Watan, conveyed by the Jerusalem Post, the Egyptian Cabinet considers declaring the Muslim Brotherhood a “terrorist organization”. Continue Reading

Lobbying is an important part in the strategies of the Muslim Brotherhood and their UK based subsidies such as The Cordoba Foundation of Mr. Anas Altikriti. They do not even hide their ambitions, as you can see here:

One can even buy an “introduction to effective effective lobbying and campaigning” via the Cordoba-Foundation’s website:

where the most effective techniques for lobbying, advocacy and community outreach are edited to pdf-report with very professional appearance. What organisations like The Cordoba Foundation obviously DO hide, is, how exactly the muslim brotherhood tries to infiltrate Britains political system, as the Sunday Telegraph uncovered recently:

London Citizens (LC) was established in 2001 and is affiliated to Citizens UK, sharing the same staff and offices. LC is an alliance of community organisations in London in England. It is largely composed of faith groups including churches and mosques, schools, student organisations, union branches and residents’ associations. It is part of Citizens UK (formerly the Citizen Organising Foundation), which also includes a similar organisation in Birmingham. London Citizens’ most high profile campaigns include those to establish a London living wage of £8.30 per hour, and a campaign called Strangers into Citizens, which calls on the British government to regularise the status of illegal immigrants who can prove that they have proficiency in English, community ties and no criminal record by offering them permission to stay in the UK legally for two years, with the possibility of citizenship at the end.

„The Cordoba Foundation“ describes its mission as follows: „The world today is replete with tensions and conflicts on religious and political issues. Whilst some may interpret such conflicts as proof of an inevitable clash between the West and the Muslim world, The Cordoba Foundation (TCF) works alongside many others to prove that such a clash is neither inevitable, nor necessary.“

The Cordoba Foundation conducts pro-Muslim lobbying activities, events, training and publications. Besides books and guides, e.g. on lobbying methods, it publishes a quarterly journal, “Arches”. So far so good, wouldn’t there be some “common patterns” that we know from the past. Let’s have a look who the leading heads of The Cordoba Foundation are: Continue Reading
