Following the meeting, Prime Minister Stefan Lofven told Swedish broadcaster SVT :

“It has become increasingly obvious that foreign powers are trying to influence an election and its outcome.”

“Obviously Russia was active in the U.S. elections and we cannot assume that we are immune.”

That analysis relates to the End Games for various political factions in The Syria Conflict.

    This is an interesting Article. I have encountered other reports from both the United States and the United Kingdom which discuss the Moslem Brotherhood.
    One way of looking at the Moslem Brotherhood is as a Political Think Tank not dissimilar to other Globalist Think Tanks whose aims are to promote Globalism and neo-liberal economic goals.
    Although called the Moslem Brotherhood and broadly positioned as Islamic it is more precisely Islamist in a political sense and not a religious sense. Islamism as a political and Globalist phenomenon is not dissimilar to Zionism.
    Zionism is a Political movement and not Religous one when one considers it in a wider political context.
    Neo-Liberal Globalism works through Think Tanks and pressure groups and is woven into the Fabric of the Washington Aligned Global Establishment there are other ideologically based secular groups which identify with a secular and homogenised end goal, such as Common Purpose or at a higher level of the hierarchy Rhodes Scholarships or the Erasmus exchange programmes.
    The current move against Globalism to De Globalisation represented by the election of President Donald Trump and the Brexit vote and so-called Populist movements is a kick back against the dilution of culture.
