Liberal Muslim group slams Saudi centre
A liberal Muslim group in Austria has called on the Austrian authorities to keep a watchful eye on what is going on at a Saudi-financed religious dialogue centre in Vienna, which it alleges is being infiltrated by radical Salafists and Muslim Brotherhood members.
Amer Albayati, president of the Initiative Liberaler Muslime Österreich (ILMÖ), said that up to 100 people at the controversial King Abdullah Bin Abdulaziz International Centre for Interreligious and Intercultural Dialogue (KAICIID) are operating under the "protective mantle of diplomatic immunity" and that the organization has become "a new entry point for radical Islamists."
Albayati said that Ibrahim El-Zayat, the co-founder of the Muslim-Jewish Leadership Council (launched by KAICIID), has been linked in media reports to the controversial Muslim Brotherhood organization.
