ISLAMIZE THEM:

Senior Sunni cleric urges ideological battle against IS (AFP, November 16, 2015)

Al-Azhar's head, Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayyeb, condemned the bloody attacks that were claimed by IS, describing them as contrary to religion.

"The problem is, those who control religious discourse, they and their stances should be reviewed," Shoman said.

"You must be certain that those in charge of religious discourse are not helping in the spread of terrorism," he said.

Shoman said al-Azhar has little presence in Europe, but the numbers of Europeans who have joined IS pointed to the presence of extremist preaching in the continent.

"You will find that these people lack in (Islamic) education, and have not been religious for long, and yet they consider what they're doing is jihad," he added.
