A Common World Agreement

By Zach Arnold | April 7, 2021

Nearly 700 articles have been published on “A Common Word” in English-language newspapers around the world. Virtually every newspaper in the Middle East, and the West has held at least one article on the initiative. There is a long list of press excerpts on the initiative on the A Common Word website. [11] Since the initial letter was sent on 18 October 2007, there have been a number of new signatories, with the result that there are now more than 300 Muslim signatories. Considerable efforts have been made to ensure that the signatories defend the widest possible range of views of the Muslim world. Among the remarkable signatories, it was said: “In obedience to the Holy Qu`ran, as Muslims, we invite Christians to meet us on the basis of what is common to us, which is also most important for our faith and practice: the two commandments.” Today, more than 258 million people worldwide live outside their country of birth. In 2017, high-income countries took in 64%, or nearly 165 million of the total number of international migrants in the world. In addition, most of the growth in the world`s international migrant population is due to movements to high-income countries, which have taken in 64 million of the 85 million migrants since 2000. We who believe in God and in the last encounter with Him and his judgment, on the basis of our religious and moral responsibility and through this document, we call ourselves, the world leaders, as well as the architects of international politics and the world economy, to work hard to spread the culture of tolerance and coexistence in peace; intervene as quickly as possible to put an end to the innocent bloodshed and put an end to the wars, conflicts, environmental degradation and the moral and cultural decline that the world is currently experiencing. In addition, there are large differences not only in the number of refugees housed around the world, but also in the quality of protection.

Many of the refugee-hosting countries, particularly developing countries in Africa and Asia, have not ratified the Geneva Convention or are not meeting all of their commitments. They keep refugees in camps, do not grant them the right to move and work freely, and rely heavily on international solidarity to meet their basic needs.
