Dyab Abou Jahjah (b. 1971) is a Lebanese-born publicist and activist. In the early nineties, he moved to Belgium where he studied political science. In 2000, he founded the Arab European League (AEL), a movement that advocated for the rights of Muslim immigrants and proved to be controversial from the outset. Since 2014, he has been president of Movement X, a civil rights movement that unites immigrants and natives in their ambition to fight against every form of discrimination.
