Muslim World League 911 Anniversary Statement Blames "Zionist Institutions" For Distorting Islam


The Secretary-General of the World League issued a statement on the anniversary of the September 11 attacks which blames “Zionist instiutions” for helping to distort the image of Islam:

The perpetrators of terrorist acts in the world have committed a great sin which is considered by Islam to be a major crime. That Islam has been put in the dock as a result is a great injustice and ignores the its firm position against terrorism, killing people, and the destruction of property. There is no law anywhere comparable to the severity of Islamic law against terrorists, murderers and trouble makers. Zionist institutions are in the forefront of those who distort the image of Islam and terrorism by linking those crimes….Our organizations call on international organizations to cooperate through the implementation of join programs in spreading the culture of peace and combating evil, in particular the scourge of terrorism.

The Muslim World League was established in 1962 as a means for the propagation of Saudi “Wahabbi” Islam. Muslim Brothers played an important role in its founding and, to date, the League has been strongly associated with the Brotherhood. Muslim Brotherhood condemnations of terrorism almost always focus strongly on complaints about the association of Islam and violence and “Zionism” is frequently blamed for assorted ills.
