It is a great pleasure to welcome the visitors of the official website of the Twelfth Session of the Islamic Summit Conference being held in Cairo Egypt from the 2nd till the 7th of February 2013. Convening the Islamic Summit in Cairo entails a great significance as it is the first time for Egypt to host a summit of the Organization of the Islamic Cooperation (OIC); the second largest intergovernmental organization (57 States from 4 continents) after the United Nations, in addition to the fact that it will be the first summit to be held in Egypt after the 25th of January Revolution. Egypt is a founding member of the OIC, which was established upon a decision by the historical Rabat summit (September 1969) in the aftermath of the criminal arson of the Holy Aqsa Mosque during the summer of that year. Egypt’s role was not limited to that important historical dimension; but rather remained persistent through its continuous efforts to intensify political coordination and economic cooperation among member countries. Egypt is committed to contribute positively to OIC committees and organs. 

The consecutive international and regional crises in the last few years have led the OIC member countries to face a variety of fundamental challenges. This situation entails the necessity for orchestrating coordinative and joint efforts with the aim of submitting creative perspectives dealing with the consequences arising from those crises. It is our conviction that common visions and stances should be developed as a necessary prerequisite for enabling OIC member states to adapt to the current international situation, which differs than that prevailing when the OIC was established 44 years ago. On the other hand, we realize the importance of consolidating the OIC principles and noble objectives, which are crucial nowadays more than anytime else. 

I will be glad to welcome Their Majesties and Excellencies Kings, Heads of State and Government of the OIC member countries in Egypt, as well as all Delegates to our Twelfth Summit in February 2013. I am confident that this Summit will be important, successful, and will pave the way towards a new horizon of joint Islamic cooperation and coordination that complies with the aspirations of our peoples for a better future.

  1. It is vitally important to consult the Scriptures when making decisions concerning the Jews and the Palestinians so that a grave decision will not be made.
