Text of the letter dated 24 January
1986 from His Majesty Hassan II, King of Morocco,
addressed to the Secretary-General and the President of the Security Council
As President of the Organization of the Islamic Conference and Chairman of the Al-Quds Committee, We have, on behalf of all the Islamic countries, brought before the Security Council a complaint against the State of Israel for its multiple violations of the pertinent resolutions of the Security Council and of the General Assembly of the United Nations and for its unspeakable desecrations of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, perpetrated with the endorsement and on the decision of the Government of Israel and carried out under the protection and with the support of its armed police.
The blow thus dealt not only to the absolutely unquestionable legal and historical rights of the Muslim countries but also, and above all, to the deepest feelings of one billion inhabitants of this planet constitutes a crime against spiritual values and a violation of divine precepts, which, if they go unpunished, might provoke among the masses of the believers a legitimate but uncontrollable reaction of revolt, with unforeseeable and incalculable consequences.
The world is following your debate, not without anxiety, and expects of the Security Council the decisions which the gravity of the situation dictates.
We, for our part, are certain that all the members of the Council, transcending and passing beyond contingencies arising from strategic or circumstantial alliances or friendships and taking into account only the lofty mission of peace and justice with which they are invested, will act on Our complaint in the manner naturally called for both by law and by the universal conscience.
Accept, Sir, the assurances of Our highest consideration.
King of Morocco
