In our newly issued report “Europe and the Global Muslim Brotherhood Part 3: Cooperation Between US and European Muslim Brotherhood Groups,” we wrote on p. 5:
HAFEZ is a founding member of the MUSLIMISCHE JUGEND ÖSTERREICH, an Austrian Muslim youth organization that is a member of FEMYSO.
That has been corrected to:
HAFEZ is a founding member of the MUSLIMISCHE JUGEND ÖSTERREICH, an Austrian Muslim youth organization that has been a member of FEMYSO.
to reflect the denial by the MJÖ that they are a current FEMYSO member, claiming they were only a member between 2003 and 2005. However, according to a report from reliable Austrian media, the duration of MJÖ’s FEMYSO membership is under contention:
The MJÖ admits to having been an “associate member” of FEMYSO, a Muslim Brotherhood organization, between 2003 and 2005, but today has no ideological or organizational ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. However, the NZZ journalist Elisalex Henckelf found the following in 2015 on the website of the Young Muslim Women ofAustria (JMÖ), a sub-organization of the MJÖ: “At the European level, the MJÖ works as a member of the European umbrella organization Forum of European Muslim Youth and Student Organisations (FEMYSO).” (NZZ.at of 28.10.15). Dudu Kücükgöl, a board member of MJÖ in 2015, expressed displeasure with the journalist on Facebook: “Sometimes outdated documents are still online.” In the web archive, however, it can be proven that this document was only put online after September 2007, i.e. two years after the alleged withdrawal from FEMYSO.
