Ramy Abdu


Dr. Ramy Abdu was formerly the Regional Director of the Council of European Palestinian Relations (CEPR), the pro-Hamas lobbying group for the European Union. Prior to that, Dr. Abdu was known to have been a spokesperson for the European Campaign To End The Siege On Gaza (ECESG), a central player in the two Hamas-backed Gaza flotillas of 2010 and 2011. In November 2012, Euro-Mid was one of the organizers of a Geneva demonstration against the prosecution of Muslim Brotherhood leaders in the UAE which called the international community “the slave of the Emirati financial lobby.” Other organizers included the Swiss Muslim League, the Swiss member organization of the Federation of Islamic Organizations in Europe (FIOE), in turn representing the Muslim Brotherhood in Europe, and the now-defunct Emirates Center for Human Rights, itself tied to both the Muslim Brotherhood in the UK and to Hamas.
