We launched Ikhwan Info in June 2015. We needed to provide a Watchdog of Political Islam and the Muslim Brotherhood which is a political and fundamentalist network that thrives in Muslim countries and finds allies in the West. It managed to influence western public opinions mainly through its efficient propaganda but also due to the lack of public knowledge about its double talk , its speeches, its ramifications worldwide, its thinkers and strategists. Our goal was to overcome this gap. We reached it even better than expected.

Some investigations, such as those conducted by a former MB activist who became a contributor of Ikhwan Info , Mohamed Louizi, alerted public opinion as well as French authorities. They played a decisive role in the decision to cancel the participation of extremist preachers, at rallies organized by the Muslim Brotherhood in France.
