Muslim Brotherhood associates broker €2 million deal from Kuwait for Dutch mosqueSeptember 24, 2013
Nooh al-Kaddo, who plays a leadership role in several European affiliates of the international Muslim Brotherhood, has positioned himself as a central dealmaker in obtaining financing from Kuwait for the controversial Blue Mosque in Amsterdam.
A special report from the Investigative Project on Terrorism has revealed that al-Kaddo secured €2 million from Kuwait to be funneled through the Europe Trust Netherlands (ETN), a leading Dutch-Muslim group. In exchange the Kuwaitis largesse, Kuwait’s minister of religious affairs is being designated as the new the chairman of ETN. Kuwait will also essentially retain control over mosque.
According to IPT, al-Kaddo runs the Islamic Cultural Center of Ireland (an entity tied to Muslim Brotherhood spiritual leader Youssef Qaradawi), serves as a trustee of the Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated charity Human Appeal International, and worked on the Kuwait/Blue Mosque deal with three other Muslim Brotherhood-linked Islamic leaders—Ahmed Al-Rawi, Yahia Bouyafa, and Yassin Elforkani.
