Amnesty International director alleged to have links to Muslim Brotherhood & radical Islamists

A senior Amnesty International official has been found to have private links with the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and revolutionary Islamists accused of plotting a coup in an Arab state.
Amnesty’s director of faith and human rights, Yasmin Hussein, stayed overnight at the residence of a Muslim Brotherhood advisor during an official visit to Egypt in direct contravention of Amnesty guidelines.

Her husband was also named as an alleged Islamist in documents relating to a 2013 sedition trial in the United Arab Emirates.

Hussein, who was until recently the charity’s director of international advocacy and among its leading voices at the UN, denies being an Islamist and has said she is “vehemently opposed” to raising money for “any organization that supports terrorism.”

An investigation published by The Times claimed that Hussein, 51, held a private meeting with a Muslim Brotherhood government official during an Amnesty mission to Egypt in 2012.

    We must not be hasty to be judgemental….it is a UN organization, and we all know who runs the UN now….just ask any country that is being forced, I mean asked to accept more and more “refugee’s”.

      Amnesty is not a UN organization. It is an independent charity largely funded by left-wing oriented foundations and billionaires.

    Well it is kind of hard for any Muslim who pays their required zakat, a portion of which must go toward jihad, to genuinely claim not to support terror against non-Muslims. The mandatory minimum first step is to become an apostate from Islam.
