International Union of Muslim Scholars Calls for Rebels Unity Following Douma massacre

Ali Qaradaghi, Secretary General of the International Union of Muslim Scholars, denounces the massacres committed by Bashar al-Assad and his fascist regime against the Syrian people for more than four years, particularly the unspeakable massacres in Douma, Idlib, Zabadani and Dara’a.

Qaradaghi calls upon all the world’s governments and international organizations to urgently provide aid to the Syrian people and alleviate their plight, deploring the international community’s failure support the Syrian people who have been subjected to the worst kinds of genocide and forced displacement.

He also calls on all rebel factions in Syria to unify their efforts to confront the fascist Assad regime and thwart all attempts to sow discord by enemies of Syria, the nation's enemies and the enemies of freedom.

Yusuf al-Qaradawi, head of the International Union of Muslim Scholars, said that “while the world is keeping silent over what’s going on in Syria, it lacks the will to deter Bashar al-Assad from the killing of hundreds of people on a daily basis and in full view of the world. The district of Douma is being mercilessly slaughtered. So when will Arab, Islamic and the world’s conscience wake up?”

In a press conference held yesterday in response to the Douma massacre, President Khoja calls upon the international community, specifically Russia, the United States, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation and the Arab League “to assume their responsibilities towards the Syrian people who have been slaughtered for nearly five years amid international silence that amounts to acceptance of these crimes.”

“We call upon our friendly countries to support them and to bring the perpetrators of the massacres in Ghouta, Douma, Idlib, Zabadani, Wadi Barada and all areas of Syria to the International Criminal Court,” Khoja added. (Source: Syrian Coalition)
