Dutch Muslim Brotherhood Mosque Imposes Ban On Oppostion Members


The Dutch media is reporting on a ban imposed on five members of a mosque tied to the Dutch Muslim Brotherhood. According a translated summary of one report:

The Rotterdam Essalam administration is applying for a restrictive ban on five rebellious members of the organization. According to the administration, these five persons and their presence is leading to “escalation” within the mosque; this marks the first time that a mosque administration is trying to ban members from praying in their mosque, with the help of a court in the Netherlands. Administrators and some visitors to the mosque are upset with influence from Arab financiers from Dubai – who are helping to finance the building of a new large mosque in Rotterdam-South – of which building has currently stopped.

The Essalem mosque is operated by the Dutch branch of the Maktoum Foundation, a charity operated by the ruling family of Dubai which has funded other global Muslim Brotherhood projects in Europe. One of the members of the Foundation board is Nooh Al-Kaddo, the director of the Islamic Cultural Center of Ireland which also houses the European Council for Fatwa and Research, chaired by global Muslim Brotherhood leader Youssef Qaradawi.
