3:12 pm
that i started shouting at them and i asked them who is responsible for that? and there was one very interesting response. i'm with it is it is a response that austrian people know very much from the nazi times. because after i, after the, the nazi regime had ended and people were brought to the court. or there was one typically response coming from officials from the state authorities. and this response was, i am just fulfilling the orders. so i'm not responsible, i'm just doing my duties. and i said so, okay, so who is responsible for that? and then they said yeah, the state prosecuting grubbs, he is responsible. what freed half is, was told is correct. and operation look,
3:13 pm
so was coordinated by the public prosecutor's office in the city of grants, 200 kilometers south of vienna. the raids took place a week after a form, and i saw sympathizer shot dead for people in the center of vienna. but they're so far, no proven connection between the dawn raids and that vienna solo attack doc, a similar to that of sir wallace. what also what dos, motto, ursula. while i'm at the directors as elephant dirt the fur lifted in minnesota, huck dumbledore al clef, but slowly, little as in minute minute the 100. and what does ally want a little to rather than lead allen into milo, maddening lucidity dipped out. i'm the don't of dark. must that sawyer darted

3:16 pm
operation looked, saw was carried out across 4 austrian states over $900.00 police officers and special unit agents took part in it. but no criminal charges were brought against any one question. i think these are all assumptions gary's. nothing proved. look, sean. oh, did not yield anything and i'm a legal person as you're now know. and i are looked at this from a legal point of view and i said, this is a terrible mistake because it affected some said 2 young family. mm hm. and as who cannot open its own id, sla, me as 900, but i see what it is going on and what it says to me, man,
3:17 pm
since tomorrow miss. how asked about the name of the operation given that looked saw as an egyptian city with no obvious link to austria. hell at law smart cut his ye yeah. laminated athlete who i'm or wanted when, if in them so casa under emily, a comic vassal about them. so yeah, and i had the financial seattle more to set them. so we're, we're allow money out of them. so you of course, the reverend strategic. yes. so there is quite a possibility that their ver contacts with, with egypt before that. and there is also one of the week them to disappear in egypt after the separation. so i would not be surprised if there would have been contacts with the egyptian. a secret service previously unreleased austrian security service documents also suggest some kind of linked to egypt and confirmed thomas sh meeting as point about one of the men questioned. he
3:18 pm
was an air mom of a mosque in vienna, and when he lay to travel to egypt, he was arrested on arrival. this raised the possibility of collusion between austrian and egyptian intelligence. meanwhile, austrian prosecutors continued to insist that operation looks so was launched after an investigation going back more than a year and was not connected to the solo attack the previous week that was carried out by a 20 year old jewel, national of austria and north macedonia. with a previous conviction for trying to join iceland, syria. some observers however, believe that the 2 were connected and that the raids were a response by the populist austrian government to the solo attack. i do think it was a political oppression. it was the attempt to show after
3:19 pm
that terroristic arc that preceded the whole thing a few days before prior dora to show that here is the minister of rigidity or protecting you against terrorism. and the operation was directed towards people who couldn't even be suspected to be that number or in that, in that guide of, of, of again say go, yeah, rel cannuck, his view is in line with the statement made by austria's then interior minister the same day as they operation look, so res. call me hammer, is now the austrian chancellor, and refer to the operation as a necessary response to the solo. i still attack a quote successful measure taken against so called political islam.
3:20 pm
but the position is not clear. the grants prosecutor's official line remained that operation looked so had been months in the planning, and this is borne out by documents uncovered by tamar al miss helen, his teen. some from the former austrian intelligence service, the federal agency for state protection and counter terrorism, or b, the t. these documents detail interrogations following the raids on the 9th of november 2021 dated 6 months before the raids is from the grants public prosecutor's office. to austrian intelligence, and or does the hacking of social media counts? another orders, the monitoring of phone messages and obtaining phone records. where would they find baterri hermiston chassis? ge, none with us on the thermostat for humps up

muslim brotherhood as a whole is a terrorist organization which is a new thing in the european union. the muslim brotherhood is not considered a terrorist organization. it's only a few arab states actually like egypt or the united arab emirates who can see there are the moving brotherhood, a terrorist organization. the muslim brotherhood was founded in egypt in 1928 as a religious and social organization, and then moved into politics. although it's well established across the arab world, it's not allowed to operate as a political party and certain arab countries in austria, some right wing politicians tried to get it designated, a so called terrorist organisation. a right wing coalition formed a new austrian government and december 2017. they didn't manage to ban the muslim

3:41 pm
away. we're rip the islamic center. there contains a mosque and a social center, a most of it uses our austrians of bosnian origin. it was also rated as part of operation looks. so we have never had any illegal or security issues with almost. i believe that the, the story begins of several years back when the austrian authorities started implementing a number of new policies that were targeting muslims. and the muslim community in general that started in 2015 when they introduced a new, a law regulating life of muslim communities, honest, international level. it carried on with the ban of the face veil, the ban of a head covering for small girls in elementary schools, et cetera. that is something that i started happening several years in the past. ah, that, ah, we of course felt in that most since we're under new scrutiny and we're being in
3:42 pm
our view, are used as a scapegoat and community to an ensure certain a better, a support from the local voters. there are about $700000.00 muslims in austria, around 7 percent of the population. they were heavily opposed to the 2015 law changes all parts of the islam act until part in widespread protests in the law. restricted foreign funding for islamic organizations and cut off an important financial lifeline for them. in the architecture of the legislation was sebastian court minister of integration affairs. at the time, the courts represented the right wing of the austrian people's party and became chancellor after the 2017 general election. but he came under investigation in
3:43 pm
a financial corruption case in 2021 and resign the chancellor. and i think this is what we saw, especially with the boston court. so boston court was the main guy was in charge of implementing all of these policies that basically criminalized muslim, live in austria. and the beginning of that was the islam x in 2015. so when i ran against this act and spoke out publicly and other institutions like the muslim use of austria, they rallied against it. that was the, that was the time when everything changed. because the conservative party realized there is a strong force in the country which is running against our ideas of how we see the future of islam in austria. and then you could see 2017,
3:44 pm
the anti face wave, the face wave van egg 2018. the hid job then the closure of mosques with the critique of the islam act. and i remember there were guys from the muslim youth who wizard it sebastian quotes when he was still for an integration minister and he actually won them. he said, look, you should take care of what you're saying. and the public expenses for they kept on with their, with their protest. and one day later, the 1st article appeared in the media and let linking them and living the protest against islamic to isis. ok. and then a few weeks later, there was this allegation of linking the most amuse, then muslim brotherhood. and that's how all of this started. al jazeera english, contacted sebastian courts and asked him to respond to the allegation. the 2015
3:45 pm
