French journalist Majed Nehmé has written an article in which he describes how he believes French governments have “helped to hand over the suburbs to communalist societies and associations affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood and financed mainly by Turkey and Qatar.” According to the article:
Starting from a false premise that political Islam is the only current representative of Islam, bringing changes in the Arab world and in the Muslim community of France, successive governments in Paris, both on the left and on the right of the political spectrum, apart from rare lucid and courageous republican-minded personalities such as Chevenement, the current lay president of the Fondation des oeuvres de l’islam, fell into the trap of political Islam and helped to hand over the suburbs to communalist societies and associations affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood and financed mainly by Turkey and Qatar. Those two countries, the last sponsors of the Muslim Brotherhood and political Islam, are doing an effective and dangerous proselytising job, taking advantage on one side of the failure of the French model of integration and, on the other side, of the total lack of involvement on the part of the countries of origin of those communities, mainly Maghreb countries, and of the abandonment of their past policy of supervision.

The article goes on to state:
Worried about complacency shown towards the Muslim Brotherhood, especially since the election of Nicolas Sarkozy as president in 2007, many politicians and intellectuals in France sounded the alarm but it wasn’t to be.
In one of earliest posts, the GMBDW reported that in October 2007, then French President Nicholas Sarkozy had dined with the Vice-President of the Union des Organisations Islamiques de France as well as other Muslim leaders.
The Union des Organisations Islamiques de France (UOIF) , renamed the Musulmans de France,in 2018, is widely regarded as representing the Muslim Brotherhood in France.
