SANAA, June 28: Foreign ministers of the Organization of the Islamic Conference opened a meeting here on Tuesday with a call for a Muslim permanent seat on the UN Security Council.

OIC Secretary-General Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu urged a greater role for Muslim countries in world affairs and demanded a ‘permanent representation for the Islamic world on the UN Security Council’.

“The Islamic world, which represents one-fifth of total mankind, cannot remain excluded from the activities of the Security Council which assumes a fundamental role in keeping security and peace in the world,” he said.

*shakes head* IMO this is nothing but idiocy. A permanent seat for the Islamic world is an insane proposal to say the least. I guess some muslim organisations dont know when to draw the line in demands. The way i see it for a large part of the islamic world relegion weighs heavier than nationality and all muslims feel they belong to the same madrassic ummah and consider nationality to be insignificant.

The way i see it most of them will defend islam rather than defend their country.

Such a move will seriously endanger the secular philosophy of the UN. If this is sanctioned then every relegion will demand a permanent seat and the world must be divided on basis of relegion.

Considering the fact that 95% of all terror is islamic in nature, can you imagine the fate of the world if something like this is approved..God forbid.

The demand is for one permanent seat. I presume that it would give them a veto power too. The seat will be held by the OIC(Organization of the Islamic Conference), and not any of the individual Islamic nations.

They want a seat on the UNSC representing a religion? If that is the case, then all religions should get a seat. We will then see how long it will take to get resoluitions passed.
