WAMY Participates In European Islamic Youth Camp


The website of the World Assembly of Muslim Youth (WAMY) has reported that the organization participated in what was described as the fifth Western Europe youth camp that was organized in August by the Cultural Social Centre in Holland. Around 300 young people from the Arab world participated as well as young people from Holland, France, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, Norway and Italy. The slogan for the event was described as “Islamic Presence in the West: MIlestones on the Road to Positive Integration” and the program included seminars, lectures and workshops, as well as recreational activities such sporting events, cultural competitions, and parties. Although no further information was available about the “Cultural Social Centre”, a previous post has discussed a visit by young German Muslims to the WAMY headquarters in Jeddah and noted that Ibrahim El-Zayat, the leader of the global Muslim Brotherhood organization in Germany, was formerly the Western European representative for WAMY as well being a long-time leader in German and European Islamic youth organizations. U.S. government agencies and officials have argued that WAMY has helped spread Islamic extremism around the world as well as sponsoring terrorism in places such as Bosnia, Israel, and India.
