PARIS – International counterterrorism expert Richard Labeviere said Monday that Britain founded the Muslim Brotherhood to serve its own interests at the time.
“Everyone remembers what Britain did in India,” Labeviere said. “It created a terrorist group made up of Pakistanis and Indians to spread chaos and destruction in the Indian subcontinent.”
He 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 US also used the same policy against the late president Gamal Abdel Nasser in Egypt when he opened channels of communication with the Soviet Union and wanted to support Arab nationalism.
Labeviere said the US and the UK always use terrorist organizations to achieve their own political goals.
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.
