The ambivalence of Dr. Chams-Eddine and Mister Hafiz, capable of moving – in the space of barely three months – from a manifesto against Islamism to an alliance with the Muslim Brotherhood, finds its explanation in the fact that the rector of the Grand Mosque of Paris – like all his predecessors since the creation of this mosque in 1926 – is an official of the Algerian State: the Grand Mosque was erected as a sign of France’s gratitude to the “indigenous Algerian soldiers who died for their country during the Great War”.
Last September, the new rector of the Grand Mosque of Paris, Chams-Eddine Hafiz, published a resounding book entitled “Le manifeste contre le terrorisme islamiste”, in which he castigated the supporters of political Islam. He thus established himself as a champion of moderate Islam. No one could have imagined then that, less than three months later, the enlightened rector would make a strange and radical turnaround, to ally himself with the Muslim Brotherhood, the mother house of Islamism, against the French Council of the Muslim Faith (CFCM), led by his rival Mohamed Moussaoui.
Tunisia is boiling under a scorching heat on July 25, 2021, its bank holidays. For the 64th anniversary of the Tunisian Republic, thousands of people took to the streets to demonstrate their discontent, demanding the dissolution of parliament and the departure of the Islamists from power. This rampant cancer has taken over all the strategic and vital organs of the country since the 2011 Revolution and the triumphant return from exile of the “Tunisian Khomeini” Rached Ghannouchi: Founder of the Islamic party “Ennahda”, President of the Tunisian Parliament but above all official representative of the Muslim Brotherhood in Tunisia.
Eight months after the Vienna attacks, the Austrian authorities have just toughened their anti-terrorism legislation. With the new anti-terrorism law adopted on July 8, Austria has taken the plunge, being the first European country to put the Muslim Brotherhood on its blacklist of terrorist organizations.
In an interview with Al Arabiya television channel, Hamas political bureau chief Khaled Mechaal, based in Doha, Qatar, questioned the decision taken by the Palestinian Islamist movement in 2017, which then amended its charter to remove any reference to its affiliation with the Muslim Brotherhood.
Following the revelations of the book “Qatar Papers” on the Qatari funding granted to the Lycée Averroès in Lille, Jean-Michel Blanquer, the french Minister of National Education commissioned two reports. Two years later, these reports intended to determine whether the foreign funding in question is likely to revoke the contract that binds this high school, founded and run by the Muslim Brotherhood, to national education (and therefore to cut public funding). ), have still not been made public …
On January 30, 2019, Tariq Ramadan filed a complaint against our colleague Ian Hamel, for “defamation” and “slander”, following the publication of an article published on November 26, 2018 on the website of the magazine Le Point, entitled “The Geneva government confirms the charges against Tariq Ramadan ”. The text was a synthesis of a report commissioned by the Council of State (the government) of Geneva on the behavior of the preacher when he was a teacher in a college in Switzerland between 1984 and 2004. The report confirmed the accusations against Tariq Ramadan in the Swiss press, namely that he was suspected of having had sexual relations with some of his students. On January 21, 2021, an order for the filing of this complaint was issued by Olivier Jornot, Attorney General of the Canton of Geneva, thus clearing our colleague of the accusations of “defamation” and “slander” made against him by the grandson of the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood.
