RECOMMENDED READING: “Oxfam And Friends”

By

A U.K. organization known as Stand For Peace has published a report titled “Oxfam and Friends” which looks at groups with which the British charity has partnered, including many associated with the Global Muslim Brotherhood. The report begins: 

This report reveals that Oxfam has partnered with groups that  support terrorism, religious extremism, anti-Semitism and advocate  violence against Jews, women and homosexuals.  But what exactly de?nes a partnership? Oxfam has sponsored events,  issued joint press releases, and run campaigns with all these groups.  Certainly, if these were far-Right groups, the criticism of Oxfam’s  associations would be much more loud and severe. And yet some of  these groups listed advocate ideas that are even more extreme than  the evil politics peddled by far-Right. Most importantly, Oxfam itself describes many of these relations as  “partnerships”. It partnered with Islamic Relief and Human Appeal and  Muslim Brotherhood-linked group MADE to produce a ‘campaigns  toolkit’.  Both Islamic Relief and Human Appeal have been accused by  a number of Governments of being “terrorist fronts”. Further, Islamic  Relief’s President, Essam al-Haddad, was the campaign manager for  Egyptian President Morsi, who recently described Jews as the  “descendents of apes and pigs”. In fact, on Oxfam’s website, the blog post acknowledging the  ‘campaigns toolkit’ project was written by an Oxfam sta? member  called Nina Gora, who was a leading anti-Israel activist while at  University. Working with the Palestine Solidarity Campaign, she  invited Aharon Cohen, the extremist leader of Neturei Karta, to  address students. A few years before, Cohen had said that Holocaust  victims “deserved it”.

The Oxfam website describes the organization as follows:

Oxfam is an international confederation of 17 organizations networked together in more than 90 countries, as part of a global movement for change, to build a future free from the injustice of poverty. We work directly with communities and we seek to influence the powerful to ensure that poor people can improve their lives and livelihoods and have a say in decisions that affect them.

 The Stand For Peace report identifies the following Oxfam partners which are tied to the Global Muslim Brotherhood:

Also identified in the report as an Oxfam partner is the Palestine Solidarity Committee which often cooperates with the U.K. Muslim Brotherhood.
