Il segretario generale della Lega Araba Ahmed Aboul Gheit ha condannato l'attacco contro i musulmani compiuto vicino a una moschea a Londra e ha invitato la comunità internazionale a combattere l'islamofobia. Con una dichiarazione pubblicata sul sito dell’organizzazione Gheit ha chiesto maggiore coordinamento nella lotta contro il terrorismo e l'estremismo religioso. “L'islamofobia è un fenomeno che sta attualmente guadagnando slancio in alcune società, è causata da stereotipi e impressioni sbagliate dell'Islam e per combatterla è necessaria la cooperazione con centri di opinione pubblici, circoli politici e mediatici” ha spiegato il segretario generale della Lega Araba.

Arab League Secretary-General Ahmed Aboul Gheit condemned the ramming attack on Muslims near a mosque in the United Kingdom's capital of London and called on the international community to fight Islamophobia, the statement published on organization's website said. Gheit called for more coordination in the fight against terrorism and religious extremism in a statement issued on Monday. "Islamophobia is one of such phenomena, which is currently gaining momentum in some societies. It is caused by stereotypes and wrong impressions [of Islam]. Cooperation with public opinion centers, political and media circles is needed," the Arab League secretary-general stressed. At least one person died and 11 more were injured, with eight of them hospitalized on Monday after a van rammed into a group of Muslims near a mosque on Seven Sisters Road, located near the Finsbury Park station in London. A 47-year-old suspect, Darren Osborne, was detained by the police shortly after the incident.
