Islam Online Features Turkish AKP Leader


Islam Online, the news portal operated by Muslim Brotherhood network leader Youssef Qaradawi, has responded to the recent election victory in Turkey by the AKP Islamist party by carrying an interview entitled “Turkey’s Pro-Islamic AKP Historic Victory.” The interview features Saban Disli, the Co-founder and Deputy Chairman of the AKP. The initial reporting by the new portal provided few clues about network’s view of the victory but providing a forum for an AKP leader would seem to constitute not-unexpected support. The global Muslim Brotherhood network already has relationships with Turkish Islamists including the presence of a MUSIAD leader on the board of the Europe Trust, the charity financing arm of the Federation of Organizations in Europe (FIOE), the European Muslim Brotherhood umbrella group. MUSIAD is an Islamist Turkish business association.
