The chancellor of Egypt’s Al-Azhar university has slammed the Takfiri ISIL militants as criminals executing the Zionist plot for destroying the Arab world.
“These fundamentalist terrorist groups, whatever their names, and their backers are colonial creations that serve Zionism in its plot to destroy the Arab world,” Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayyeb said on Monday.
“These criminals have been able to transmit to the world a tarnished and alarming image of Muslims,” he added. Al-Azhar is the Sunni Islam’s highest seat of learning.
The ISIL terrorists, of whom many are foreign militants, currently control parts of eastern Syria and Iraq’s northern and western regions, where they have been committing heinous crimes in the captured areas, including the mass execution of civilians and Iraqi security forces.
The ISIL terrorists have threatened all communities, including Shias, Sunnis, Kurds, Christians and Izadi Kurds, in their advances in the region.
This is while the Western governments have contributed to the rise of the ISIL terrorists by sponsoring the militants fighting against the government in Syria.
A new investigation by the London-based small-arms research organization Conflict Armament Research, reveals that the ISIL is using US-made weapons supplied to them through Saudi channels.
