This seems like a significant announcement but I cant yet understand exactly what those countries have all agreed to be a part of..

Another Islamic Coalition? What does this leave us with?
The Russian Federation, Assad's Government and the Iranians against a Western Ally known for funding ISIS, that has now formed another Islamic coalition against whom exactly.
This just falls short of nothing but overwhelming the Russian efforts against ISIS, I see this as more fuel to the fire.
Crazy times indeed.

This is a way for these states to coordinate and share intelligence. Every Government in a Muslim nation sees radical Islams as the biggest threat to whatever sort of Government they have.

Soo the House of Saud is scare because ISIS is been saying that they will take Saudi Arabia and the house of Saud down, so now they want to fight terrorism, but will they stop funding it also?
They can show solidarity taking back all the refugees that had spread all over Europe in their large country I am sure they have some area where they can fit all of them, after all they all worship the same religion so is not going to be any problems.
