E-004999/2021
Question for written answer  E-004999/2021
to the Commission
Rule 138
Emmanouil Fragkos (ECR)
 Subject: Dangerous policies being promoted by the Muslim Brotherhood in the EU such as encouraging the wearing of the hijab

On 29 September 2021, Charlie Hebdo revealed the existence of links between European institutions and the Muslim Brotherhood. The Muslim Brotherhood, which is considered a terrorist organisation by the US, advocates suicide attacks and openly calls for assassinations to be carried out.

A newspaper article published in September also reveals that it has a European support network and receives indirect subsidies from the Commission.

The EYE plenary sitting was also attended by members of FEMYSO, a Muslim Brotherhood organisation, whose president is Youssef Himmat, an ambassador to the Brotherhood.

FEMYSO shares the same address with the ‘Collective against Islamophobia in Belgium’, an organisation linked to the CCIF, which was dissolved by the French authorities after the murder of Professor Samuel Paty. Despite its ‘politically correct’ utterances, FEMYSO’s links with the Muslim Brotherhood reflect its true nature.

Many MEPs are now calling for measures to be taken against Egypt, Israel and Greece (making ridiculous accusations to the effect that they are ordering the shooting at illegal immigrants, for example).

At the same time, the #WECAN4HRS online campaign to encourage the wearing of the hijab in Europe is being organised under the auspices of the Commission and the Council of Europe.

In view of the above:

1. Does the Commission believe it necessary to forbid MEPs and Commission staff from forging any links with the Muslim Brotherhood and its offshoots?

2. What funding has been channelled into the #WECAN4HRS campaign?

3. What funding has to date been channelled into the above organisations?
