The Muslim Brotherhood has called on the Arab leaders meeting in Amman on Wednesday to “overcome their disagreements”, Anadolu reported on Tuesday. In a statement issued by its office in London, the movement condemned the “bloodshed of Muslim and Christian Arabs in their land between the [Atlantic] ocean and the Gulf” and called for the Arab leaders to stand for a minute’s silence to mourn the souls of all the victims in the Arab world.

Stressing that the Arab states need to end their conflicts, the Brotherhood claimed that “all the Arabs are ready to get up and stand behind their leaders with a strong will.” The “Arab nation” must not be in conflict, the movement added, but it should give time to return [human and civil] rights to their owner, “whether he is a ruler or a citizen.”

The Islamic movement also noted that a necessary condition to develop the Arab nation is to rule out those in government with the blood of their people on their hands; expel the rulers who deny the right of their people to be free; and to stand aside from those who do not seek help from God and their nations.

Amman is hosting the 28th regular Arab League summit on Wednesday. According to Anadolu, the Arab leaders will discuss the Palestinian issue and the situation in Syria, Iraq and Libya, as well as the issue of terrorism.
