Who is the Federation of Islamic Organisations in Europe? They were recently in the news when they organized a European Muslim 'code of conduct'. Signed by 400 Muslim groups for all over Europe, though apparently by not one major representative body. The list of 400 signatories was never revealed. Their site, which has never been very informative, had disappeared. They are somehow connected to the European Council of Fatwa and Research, another group which appears on the news quite often, but which keeps itself as hidden as possible.
They are apparently responsible for the top-secret "pro-Gaza" campaign yesterday.
Federation of Islamic Organisation in Europe protesting against Israel’s siege on the Gaza Strip and power and water cutoff, offered to switch off electric lamps and start candlelight march at 20.00 on January 24, imam of Icherisheher Juma mosque Haji Ilgar Ibrahimoglu told APA. The protest action lasted for 20 minutes.
Haji Ilgar said that a group of religious men from Azerbaijan also joined this initiative.
“The world community should pay attention to this disaster and condemn the actions of Zionists against thousands of civilians. People of goodwill should expose the regime torturing defenseless people,” he said.
