Saudia Arabia Oil Compound Under Siege

The MWL condemns the killing of more than 22 innocent people involved in the siege of two oil company office compounds. The organization allegedly claiming responsibility, justified its actions by stating it was punishing Saudi Arabia for its dealing with the US. There is no justification for killing innocent people. God reveals in the Quran, "Nor take life - which God has made sacred except for just cause.." (Surah 17, verse 33)  As believers we must explore peaceful means to express our dissent and work towards making society a better place. The end does not justify the means, and it is just as important to act in a way where we are conscious of God at all times. God encourages us towards the path of peace even in scenarios where one is dealing with their enemy. God states in the Quran, "But if the enemy incline towards peace, do thou (also) incline towards peace, and trust in God..." (Surah 8, verse 61)
