Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In the academic discussion about the Muslim Brotherhood, MB in Sweden, there is consensus that the Islamic Association in Sweden, IFiS is inspired by MB but the organizational relationship between the organizations has not been researched before. Holy White Lies is an English translation of the original Arabic book al-Kedhb al-Abyad al-Muqaddas. Both books were published in Cairo 2018. The book collects primary sources consisting of documentation and statement in Arabic and Swedish from various media channels, statutes, interviews and archived material from government institutions confirming the doublespeak used by IFiS to hide the organizational relationship with the International MBs network. In this article, the author defends the thesis of the book, replicate the book’s critic and presents evidence of doublespeak, the relationship between different organizations in Sweden, Egypt and international organizations and present ideological references for the thesis.
