Global Muslim Brotherhood Groups Try to Shift Narrative from Ukraine to Palestine (Part III)

More indi­vid­u­als and orga­ni­za­tions tied to the Glob­al Mus­lim Broth­er­hood are try­ing to shift the nar­ra­tive on the Russ­ian inva­sion of Ukraine to con­flicts in the Mid­dle East, par­tic­u­lar­ly the Israeli-Pales­tin­ian con­flict. Europal Forum chair­man Zaher Birawi post­ed  on Facebook,

March 9, 2022: Today in (#case_of_the_week): we dis­cuss the reper­cus­sions of the Ukrain­ian-Russ­ian war on the Pales­tin­ian issue, the war coin­cid­ed with the esca­la­tion of the Israeli occu­pa­tion in Jerusalem and the Pales­tin­ian inte­ri­or, as well as the con­se­quences of the migra­tion of Ukrain­ian Jews towards the occu­pied ter­ri­to­ries, and the real­i­ty of the role that Naf­tali Ben­nett is try­ing to play between the war­ring par­ties in Ukraine. We also shed light on the scan­dalous expo­sure of dou­ble stan­dards in the West­ern world and inter­na­tion­al posi­tions in deal­ing with the Israeli occu­pa­tion of Pales­tine and the Russ­ian inva­sion of Ukrain­ian lands.

Zaher Birawi is the chair­man of the Europal Forum, a Lon­don-based lob­by­ing and PR orga­ni­za­tion whose lead­ers are close­ly tied to the Glob­al Mus­lim Broth­er­hood (GMB) and Hamas sup­port infra­struc­ture. The Israeli gov­ern­ment has iden­ti­fied Birawi as a mem­ber of Hamas.

Anas Altikri­ti, a leader of the GMB in the Unit­ed King­dom and CEO of the Cor­do­ba Foun­da­tion, post­ed the fol­low­ing on his Face­book page, in response to Face­book allow­ing to call for vio­lence against Vladimir Putin and Russ­ian soldiers:

March 11, 2022: Quick question:

Would Face­book allow for calls for vio­lence against Rus­sians serv­ing in the Israeli army in occu­pied #Pales­tine?

Or would it allow for calls for vio­lence against Russ­ian sol­diers com­mit­ting war crimes in #Syr­ia?

The Islam­ic Soci­ety of North Amer­i­ca re-post­ed an al-Jazeera video fea­tur­ing Egypt­ian squash play­er Ali Farag, which described him as hav­ing “called out the dou­ble stan­dards on Ukraine” by speak­ing about Pales­tine. The Society’s post includ­ed the hash­tags #Stand­WithUkraine and #FreePales­tine.

The Glob­al Influ­ence Oper­a­tions Report (GIOR) report­ed ear­li­er on oth­er Glob­al Mus­lim Broth­er­hood reac­tions to the Ukraine con­flict (Part I & Part II).
