Organization of Islamic Cooperation Strongly Condemns Brussels Attacks

The Organization of Islamic Cooperation, the intergovernmental body representing 57 sovereign member states from across the Islamic world, has issued a statement strongly condemning the terrorist attacks in Brussels, which caused at least 34 deaths Tuesday morning and injured more than 100 people.

In a statement Iyad Ameen Madani, secretary general of the Muslim body, expressed his “firm rejection of these terrorist acts,” and called upon “all governments across the world, international organizations and civil society institutions to engage in a concerted joint firm action to combat the scourge of terrorism, which represents a serious threat to international peace and security.”

The org comprises the Islamic Summit — which is its supreme authority, made up of kings and heads of state — the Council of Foreign Ministers, and a General Secretariat. Other entities within the OIC include the Islamic Development Bank (IDB), and the Islamic Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ISESCO).

Many in the Arab film community are underscoring that culture and education are key tools to fight Islamic State terrorists who claimed responsibility for the attacks on Tuesday.

The self-proclaimed Islamic State has conducted or inspired nearly 75 terrorist attacks in 20 countries other than Iraq and Syria, killing at least 1,280 people and injuring more than 1,770, according to a count done by CNN.
