Islamic leader denounces ISIS, but sounds almost as violent

This is a sad case of missed opportunity, one could say. Following the burning of a Jordanian pilot by ISIS last week,  Egypt’s top Muslim authority, Grand Imam of Al-Azhar University, Ahmed al-Tayeb, expressed his “deep anger over the lowly terrorist act”. Thanks for that statement. We certainly need Muslim leaders to denounce the Jihadists.

Unfortunately, the Grand Imam added that the Qur’an prescribes “killing, crucifixion and chopping of the limbs” for those who kill innocent people, i.e. ISIS.

Not so thanks.

While violence may be required to stop ISIS, we don’t need to descend to their level of barbarity by slicing and dicing body parts.

I pray that we’ll see peace soon. Through this, perhaps the world will come to see that only through Christ’s grace can fallible humanity achieve true peace and mercy.

  1. Steven,In The so-called holy Quran,Muslims are told in Sura 9:5: Fight and slay the infidels wherever you find them,and seize them,and beleaguer them,and lie in wait for them in every stratagem of war.

    This is what Muslims are told to do to people who resist Islam.Sura 533 says:Their punishment is…execution,or crucifixion,or cutting off of hands and feet from the opposite sides,or exile from the land.Steven The new Western Worldview-Religion of so-called neutral Secular Paganism,with it’s so-called Politically Correct ideology has re-written Western history to fit their own tenets.Even the so-called Catholic and Protestant scholars argue with each other trying to win converts to their minor differences, while schoolchildren are perverted in schools by adults in the tenets of so-called neutral secular paganism.Our Secular Christian Scholars don’t know what the Koran teaches anymore. Study The Koran for yourselves and then you will know for sure what it says.Don’t believe the secular scholars who are influenced by their so-called Politically Correct Ideology.Remember the term Secular Christian Scholar is an oxymoron.Former Christian Democracies have chosen to become valley’s of the shadow of death.
