The ulemas of the Muslim world call on Morocco and Algeria to dialogue in order to resume a relationship based on brotherhood, cooperation and unity.
As Algeria’s provocations against Morocco have increased in recent weeks, the World Union of Muslim Ulemas calls on both sides to avoid escalation and war between “brothers”.
It was Assabah who reported the information in his Monday, November 8 edition. The newspaper recalls the context in which this exit takes place, and in particular the multiple speeches of King Mohammed VI where he himself had called for a privileged dialogue and to open a new page in the relations between the two countries.
Likewise, Assabah points out, all the outings of Moroccan officials in recent months promote peace, while on the other hand, it is hate speech and fraught with threat that comes to us from the officers of the neighbor to the east.
Ahmed Raissouni, president of the World Union of Muslim Ulemas, therefore affirmed that his organization is following with concern the evolution of the situation and of Moroccan-Algerian relations, with in particular the severance of diplomatic relations decreed by Algeria. In the same vein, he recalled that a large number of wars in history have broken out, not by premeditated or justified decision, but because of an uncontrolled act or action that causes things to escalate.
For Assabah, this is clearly a message to the military regime in Algiers, which for several weeks has been inventing arguments that would justify military action. He has even come to create from scratch events that never take place, with the sole aim of confirming his theses. This is for example what happened with the conditions in which Algerian truckers died in the buffer zone east of the security wall and which the international community has demonstrated.
For the World Union of Muslim Ulemas, luring the two countries into a bloody war could have serious consequences, both on the countries concerned, but also on the Arab and Muslim world. And instead of a war, the Union called on the heads of the two states to mobilize urgently to put relations between Algeria and Morocco on the right track, relations based on brotherhood, cooperation and unity. Especially since the two countries, affirms the same source, have already demonstrated in the past their capacity to contribute to peace and security almost everywhere in the world, particularly in Africa and in the Arab world.
