Islamic Forum Europe – IFE is running Islamic Study Circles, Islamic history Seminars, Conventions and Islamic camps of cultural exhibitions for non-Muslims and the annual Discover Islam Month, Arabic Language & Shariaa (Islamic law) courses.

Islamic Forum Europe – IFE goals are, as they claim in their website: developing Mosques, schools and Islamic Centers, raising funds for humanitarian relief, participating in local, national and global issues affecting the Ummah (The world wide Islamic society) and humanity at large. 

In a six-month investigation, in UK, by the Daily Telegraph and Channel 4’s Dispatches, involving weeks of covert filming by the programme’s reporters, they recorded IFE leaders expressing opposition to democracy, support for shariaa law or mocking black people. The reporters discovered that the Islamic Forum Europe – IFE organized meetings with extremists, including Taliban allies, a man named by the US government as an “unindicted co-conspirator” in the 02/26/1993 World Trade Center bombing, and a man under investigation by the FBI for his links to The 9/11.
