Belgium: A Muslim organisation has condemned the instrumentalisation of Islam to recruit voluntary fighters from Belgium for the civil-war in Syria. “Forum Musulmans et Sociét锝 (FMS), has expressed its disagreement with attempts to give a religious colour to the war in Syria, which the organisation considers to be a war between Syrians and non- religious factions. According to them, both state and revolutionaries are Muslims who are fighting to defend their land and not their religion.
