RIYADH/JERUSALEM – As funerals are held for the dozens killed by the Israeli forces in Gaza, Islamic Islamic Military Counter Terrorism Coalition (IMCTC) is all set to retaliate strongly with a devastating new condemnation, The Dependent has reliably learnt.
The 41-state Islamic military alliance, which was designed to provide counter-terror assistance to Muslim states, is currently putting together armies of copywriters and editors from its constituent countries, to target Israel with an explosive condemnation with precision and technical expertise in precis and press release writing.
The IMCTC, which hasn’t been called into action since the inaugural meeting of its Ministers of Defence Council is was held under the ‘Allied Against Terrorism’ theme in November 2017, feels that it is only fitting that its first assignment is the burning issue that the entire Muslim world collectively maintains strong feelings for.
King Muhammad bin Salman, the ruler of the host nation, and whose brainchild the IMCTC was when he was the Saudi defence minister said the Palestinians should either echo the Islamic military alliance’s condemnation or ‘shut up’.
“I mean we’re hiring the best writers from 41 Muslim states, who can prepare a better condemnation, and indeed counter-condemnation of Israel then them?” King Muhammad bin Salman said while talking to The Dependent.
According to reports, the Saudi King is set to appoint a senior Pakistani journalist to head the copywriting teams from the 41 Muslim countries.
“I will fulfill this enormous responsibility with utmost dedication and sincerity,” said senior journalist Dr Shahid Masood predicting that the man in question will be him.
