A British government report on the Muslim Brotherhood has been delayed because of fears of upsetting Britain’s Gulf allies, which are pressing Britain to outlaw the group. But a special investigation led by Britain’s ambassador to Saudi Arabia, Sir John Jenkins, has apparently concluded that the Brotherhood should not be labeled a terrorist organization in UK. The investigators, using a joint team from Britain’s foreign and domestic intelligence services, found “little evidence” that the Islamist organization was involved in terrorism.
Gulf states have long argued that London should clamp down on Islamic extremists in Britain. Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates have vociferously complained about the large number of Islamist exiles with revolutionary agendas who find asylum in Britain. Many radical Islamists are reported to be seeking to overthrow the Gulf ruling families.
