Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the Gulf kingdom’s de facto ruler, said the kingdom “holds the occupation (Israeli) authorities responsible for the crimes committed against the Palestinian people. “We are certain that the only way to guarantee security, peace and stability in the region is to end the occupation, siege, and the settlements,” he said of Israel’s actions in Gaza and the West Bank.
While some of the Muslim countries recommended tough measures to prevent Israeli terrorism against Palestinian and demanded a permanent solution by establishing a sovereign state for Palestinians from river to sea. The idea of co—existence has been floating since long , whereas the Israeli have to accept the right of independent country in one piece connecting Gaza and West bank from river to sea one sovereign state. The current divide of Palestine into two territories having Israel between them is not feasible.
The final declaration on Saturday rejected Israeli assertions that it is acting in self-defence and demanded that the United Nations Security Council adopt “a decisive and binding resolution” to halt Israel’s “aggression.” It also called for an end to weapons sales to Israel and dismissed out of hand any future political resolution to the conflict that would keep Gaza separate from the West Bank.
Few Muslim leaders recommended to respond to the war by threatening to disrupt oil supplies to Israel and its allies as well as severing the economic and diplomatic ties that some Arab League nations have with Israel. Whereas, some Muslim leaders have called to prevent the transfer of US equipment to Israel from bases in Arab countries; called to freeze all diplomatic and economic ties with Israel; threatened to use oil as leverage to put pressure on Israel a la the 1972 oil embargo; prevented flights to and from Israel using Arab countries’ air space; and formed a joint mission to put pressure on Western nations for a ceasefire. These are the old measures, which were adopted by OIC against Israel after the 1967 war and 1973 war. Nothing new, but old sanction against Israel may be exercised to pressurise it in stopping the genocide of Palestinian.
OIC was created to protect Masjid Aqsa, Palestine, and Muslim communities around the globe. The Organization was established upon a decision of the historical summit which took place in Rabat, Kingdom of Morocco on 12th Rajab 1389 Hijra (25 September 1969) following the criminal arson of Al-Aqsa Mosque in occupied Jerusalem. Although some of the Muslim Leaders are pro-West and closely aligned with the USA. But public sentiments are against the Zionist Israel and its supporter the US. The Pro-America Muslim leaders in some of the Islamic countries, cannot ignore the public opinion and cannot bear the public pressure, they have to show solidarity with the oppressed Palestinian and remain in the mainstream Muslim world.
The Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) is the second largest organization after the United Nations with a membership of 57 states spread over four continents. The Organization is the collective voice of the Muslim world. It endeavours to safeguard and protect the interests of the Muslim world in the spirit of promoting international peace and harmony among various people of the world.
There are around 2.2 billion Muslims all-over the world, it constitute one-fourth of the current global population. Some of them are non-practicing, while some are hardliner, while majority are moderate good Muslims. Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world and many non-Muslims adopt Islam after having deep studies of all religions and they are convinced that Islam is the best religion.
Muslim world is blessed with enormous natural resources, especially Oil, Gas, Minerals, and Mines etc. There are major trading partners with many developed e economies and contributing a significant share in global economy.
Although Muslim world is rich in Human Resource, Land, and Human Resource, yet, not united and divided. Some of the Muslim countries ae ruled by corrupt, greedy dictators and served the agenda of Western World. Yet, it has the potential to unite and act as a one single entity. It has full potential of developments and can compete any other nation. Islam gas glorious history and played vital role in the developments globally and can revive its lost status among the civilized nations. There has been enough awareness among the masses of Muslim countries and the current issue of Gaza-Palestine conflict may become catalyst in uniting Muslim World.
It was obviously the Nazi’s extreme crimes turned Jews into a united community and as a reaction to Hitler’s atrocities, they become active and demanded for sovereign state. The same logic may work for Muslims too. If Israel and the US continues to cross all limits of atrocities, in reaction, Muslims may unite and took a united stance. It is believed the sacrifices of innocent children and innocent civilians will not go into vain, but, will be beginning of transformation of the world order, where, humanity will prevail, equality and justice will prevail. Irrespective of race, religion, ethnicity, colour, language, or culture, will be treated equally. Human rights will be respected.
The rise of anti-American sentiments has created more space for Russia and China to influence the Muslim world. The current cooperation between the Muslim world and Russia-China is visibly increased. The enhance trade and economic ties, will increase more influence in the near future.
