MWL condemns Yesha Rabbinical Council remarks

The Makkah-based Muslim World League today condemned calls by the Yesha Rabbinical Council to “exterminate the enemy in the north and the south,” as reported in the Jerusalem Post on July 12.

In a statement, Secretary-General Abdullah Al-Turki said that the MWL condemns killing civilians and carrying out terror acts against innocent people in Lebanon and Gaza. The Council’s call serves to encourage acts of terror against unarmed civilians, he said.

Al-Turki called on human rights organizations and the United Nations to protect civilians in Lebanon and Gaza.
