The International Union of Muslim Scholars condemned Sunday the meeting of officials from several Arab countries with the Israeli Prime Minister at a conference in Warsaw.

“International Union of Muslim Scholars accepts with sorrow the meeting of a large number of officials from Arab countries with the Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu who occupy their Holy Land, kill their children, blockade their cities and Judaize the Palestine and Jerusalem with the support of the U.S.,” announced the Union in a written statement on Twitter.

The “Ministerial to Promote a Future of Peace and Security in the Middle East,” held jointly by the U.S. and Poland, took place in Warsaw, Poland on Feb. 13-14.

Arab state officials who attended the conference have forgotten what Israel has done in Jerusalem and the West Bank, the statement added.

Underlying that the Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu considered these developments as a historical turning point, the statement said: “Netanyahu asked US Secretary of State to work for Israel's and Arabs’ common interests.

United States and Poland said the international ministerial meeting would discuss peace and security in the Middle East, and critical issues such as terrorism, missile development and proliferation.

But recent remarks by senior U.S. and Polish officials have led to speculations about an attempt to build an anti-Iran coalition.

Nearly 50 countries, including Israel and several Arab states, reportedly confirmed their participation in the conference, which is officially known as the “Ministerial to Promote a Future of Peace and Security in the Middle East”.
