The video for the lecture by Ali Harfouch (speaker from MDI Lebanon) is now available below. Ali Harfouch came from MDI’s Lebanon branch to London to present a fascinating and profound lecture discussing the origins of Islamophobia in Europe, including their link to the
policies of Western governments and the historical context behind its interference in the Muslim world and is attempt to change the belief of Islam to suit its own worldview. He elaborated on how Islamophobia is not the result of fringe far-right groups in the West, but which arises from a historical and ideological ideological narrative within the West – of which the current manifestation is merely another recent iteration.
