PARIS – Chairman of the Middle East Center for Studies in Paris (CEMO) Abdel Rahim Ali said Monday that Yemen reflected conditions in the Arab region as a whole.
A victory for the Arab coalition in Yemen, which is led by both Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, he said, is a victory for the whole Arab nation.
Ali added at a conference organized by the CEMO in French capital Paris on the dangers posed by the thinking of the Muslim Brotherhood on Western societies and values that the Muslim Brotherhood backs all movements hostile to conventional armies in Arab states.
The Brotherhood, he said, wants to reestablish the Islamic caliphate which was abolished by Mustafa Ataturk of Turkey.
Titled “The Danger of Muslim Brotherhood’s Thoughts on Western Values”, the conference is attended by the members of CEMO’s Consulting Committee.
Those attending included international counterterrorism expert Roland Jacquard.
They also included journalists Atmane Tazaghart and Ian Hamel, who are focused on covering terrorist and takfiri groups.
A host of Arab and European public figures is also attending the event.
