    OIC Condemns Johnson’s Murder
    Staff Writer

    JEDDAH, 21 June 2004 — The Organization of the Islamic Conference, which groups 57 Muslim countries, yesterday condemned as barbaric and criminal the murder of US hostage Paul Johnson by Al-Qaeda terrorists.

    In a statement issued at OIC headquarters here, Abdelouahed Belkeziz, the organization’s outgoing secretary-general, termed Johnson’s beheading an act of barbarism.

    “Islam recommends the protection of foreigners... and prohibits killing innocent people among these foreigners,” he said.

    Belkeziz said the killing “distorts the reputation and image of Islam for foreigners, which harms Muslims around the world.”

    He also underlined the organization’s solidarity with Riyadh in “its campaign to wipe out terrorism and destroy” those seeking “sedition” in Saudi Arabia.

    In Doha, a Foreign Ministry spokesman said Johnson’s murder was a “terrorist act, against all precepts of Islam, all moral values and all humanitarian principles.”

    The spokesman expressed “Qatar’s support for Saudi Arabia in its struggle against terrorism,” the official QNA news agency said.

    They could condemn all they want, but what are they going to do about it. Action speaks louder than words. This has to stop.

    Well, I think action for the OIC involves words more than military might. That is the job of...the Saudi police force and military?

    But, yeah, actions of course do speak louder than words. I just thought people might be interested to know that Muslims are condemning the murder.

    Nevermind the Koran teaching the only way to ENSURE 'heaven' is to kill those opposed to Islam.

    (shrug).

    Hate to break it to those who get all warm and fuzzy feelings about the muslims condeming those atrocities..Arabs like to lie...It is in their nature. In fact Allah preaches such.

    I just did. You dont want to hear the truth about muslims and the religion of Islam and their teachings. Grow up and read the Quran then get back to me..

    I'd be more interested to hear what the Imans are preaching in Mosque in Arabic. Now that would be interesting. Find out:
