French Muslim Brotherhood Leader Says Government Must Pass Law Against Islamaphobia


An Italian news portal is reporting that the President of the Union des Organizations Islamiques de France (UOIF), essentially the Muslim Brotherhood in France, has insisted that the French government enact a law against “Islamaphobia.” According to the report:

The French government must submit a draft law against Islamophobia, like the laws against anti-Semitism. The appeal was launched by Lhaj Thami Breze, president of the Union des Organizations Islamiques de France (UOIF). In an interview with AKI-ADNKRONOS INTERNATIONAL after fire near a mosque in Lyon last Saturday, Breze says that “in the face of continuing attacks against Muslims, it is necessary that the state is not limited to condemning these acts, but proposes a law that punishes Islamophobia. ” According to the exponent of the French Muslim community, these incidents reflect “the bitterness of those who oppose seeing that Islam is finding its place in France and has official and popular acceptance.” Breze points out that “not a day goes by without the the opening of a mosque or a prayer hall in several French cities.”

The UOIF is a member of the Federation of Islamic Organizations in Europe (FIOE), the umbrella group for the European Muslim Brotherhood.
