"A regime that kills its people has no right to continue in power," said Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, secretary-general of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, at a press conference in the Al-Safa Royal Palace yesterday." 

 

The Bahraini and KSA regimes do this with regularity!    Apply that keen international vision domestically and force all member states to comply!

I hope that they can achieve a modicum of solidarity!  The MENA region divided on sectarian grounds, or on Arab versus Persian grounds hurts all!  One thing all should be able to agree upon:  Helping the Rohingya of Myanmar and Muslims supporting and helping fellow Muslims!

....

In the most significant outcome of the two-day Islamic solidarity summit that begins in Makkah today, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) late last night agreed to suspend Syria in view of Bashar Assad regime’s unrelenting bloodbath against its own people.

The suspension completes the discredited Syrian leader’s total isolation in the Muslim world.
“Yes, the resolution to suspend Syria from the OIC was adopted by a majority vote during the meeting (of the Council of Foreign Ministers at the Conference Palace) ... Everyone was relieved,” OIC Secretary-General Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu told Arab News. “This is what most of the members wanted, and there was very little opposition to the move.”

Ihsanoglu appealed to Assad to listen to the collective voice of the Muslim world. “I would like to tell him that it is the duty of leaders to sacrifice for their people ... He should leave for the sake of his own people,” he said. ...

Possible solutions to the tragedy of Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar and united response to Israel’s nefarious attempt to erase the history surrounding Al-Quds Al-Shareef and the targeting of the Islamic identity of Masjid Al-Aqsa were under discussion at the meeting.
