A U.K. organization known as Stand For Peace has published a report titled “Oxfam and Friends” which looks at groups with which the British charity has partnered, including many associated with the Global Muslim Brotherhood. The report begins:
This report reveals that Oxfam has partnered with groups that support terrorism, religious extremism, anti-Semitism and advocate violence against Jews, women and homosexuals. But what exactly deﬁnes a partnership? Oxfam has sponsored events, issued joint press releases, and run campaigns with all these groups. Certainly, if these were far-Right groups, the criticism of Oxfam’s associations would be much more loud and severe. And yet some of these groups listed advocate ideas that are even more extreme than the evil politics peddled by far-Right. Most importantly, Oxfam itself describes many of these relations as “partnerships”. It partnered with Islamic Relief and Human Appeal and Muslim Brotherhood-linked group MADE to produce a ‘campaigns toolkit’. Both Islamic Relief and Human Appeal have been accused by a number of Governments of being “terrorist fronts”. Further, Islamic Relief’s President, Essam al-Haddad, was the campaign manager for Egyptian President Morsi, who recently described Jews as the ”descendents of apes and pigs”. In fact, on Oxfam’s website, the blog post acknowledging the ’campaigns toolkit’ project was written by an Oxfam staﬀ member called Nina Gora, who was a leading anti-Israel activist while at University. Working with the Palestine Solidarity Campaign, she invited Aharon Cohen, the extremist leader of Neturei Karta, to address students. A few years before, Cohen had said that Holocaust victims “deserved it”.

The Oxfam website describes the organization as follows:
Oxfam is an international confederation of 17 organizations networked together in more than 90 countries, as part of a global movement for change, to build a future free from the injustice of poverty. We work directly with communities and we seek to influence the powerful to ensure that poor people can improve their lives and livelihoods and have a say in decisions that affect them.
The Stand For Peace report identifies the following Oxfam partners which are tied to the Global Muslim Brotherhood:
- East London Mosque
- Islamic Relief
- Human Appeal International
- Muslim Aid

Also identified in the report as an Oxfam partner is the Palestine Solidarity Committee which often cooperates with the U.K. Muslim Brotherhood.
