Radical Groups in Europe: A Focus on the Muslim Brotherhood

  • 30 June 2020

The lecture explores the danger that extremist groups, including the Muslim Brotherhood group and the Lebanese Hezbollah, pose in Europe. It also sheds light on the online activities of these groups, as well as the Terrorism Index in Europe during 2019 and the first quarter of 2020. Moreover, the lecture outlines the effect of the efforts of intelligence services that have succeeded in curtailing the abilities of these groups to advance their initiatives, thus rendering their threat limited and insignificant.

Furthermore, the lecture highlights the risks of the Muslim Brotherhood’s efforts in building parallel communities in Europe, and addresses its operational tools and methods, including the Islamic councils that flourish under its umbrella, as well as its prominent figures and strongholds in Europe.

The lecture also touches on the warnings issued by the European intelligence services against extremist groups. It has become apparent that Europe has recognized the extent of dangers posed by these groups. Therefore, it has adopted security-based plans, strategies and policies that have often proven successful in reducing the dangers they pose. However, European intelligence services all agree that the risks associated with these extremist groups still persist.
