The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) condemns the desecration of the Islamic cemeteries, including those of Ma’man Allah and Yusufiya in Al-Quds, and the opening of the so-called “Museum of Tolerance” by Israel, the occupying power, on parts of the Ma’man Allah Islamic cemetery in the occupied Al-Quds, and the exhumation of Muslim graves that are over a thousand years old. The OIC considers such heinous acts typical of the occupying power against the occupied city of Al-Quds, its people, sanctities, Islamic character, and cultural landmarks, and a provocation to the feelings of Muslims in general, and the Palestinians in particular given that the racial occupation never abides by any laws, be they international, humanitarian, or moral.

It also denounces the participation of Gianni Infantino, the President of the International Football Association (FIFA), in this illegal event, considering this a violation of the noble values ​​of sport and the FIFA Statute itself, and a flagrant and unacceptable bias in favor of the illegal Israeli occupation and its unlawful practices.
