European Brotherhood Training Facility Acknowledges Low Graduation Rate


In a Le Monde article discussing French government attempts to develop a state-controlled education for Islamic imams, Ahmed Jaballah states that only 15 students per year are graduating from the “institute” in St. Denis and that not all are becomming imams. The reference to the “institute” is likely the IInstitut Européen des Sciences Humaines  (IESH), an educational facility associated with the Federation of Islamic Organizations in Europe (FIOE) and its French member the Union des organisations islamiques de France (UOIF). Both FIOE and the UOIF are important parts of the Muslim Brotherhood network in Europe and Ahmed Jaballah, the director of IESH, is a former leader of the UOIF and a current FIOE officer. His acknowledgment of the rate of graduation and imam placement confirms earlier reports on what could be seen as the failure of IESH to fufuill its stated purpose.
