Azhar scholars reject alliance with US
|Cairo: The Azhar Ulama Front has
rejected Americas calls for an international alliance to include Arab and
Islamic countries along with others to fight what was described as
The Front, which consists of around 30,000 religious scholars, urged the
Arab and Islamic countries to keep aloof from such an aggression against
innocent people whether Muslims or non-Muslims.
In a statement signed by 16 senior Ulama on behalf of the 30,000 members,
the Front denounced voicing charges against Arabs and Muslims over the
explosions in America without any concrete proof given.
The statement said that terrorism should not be fought by generalizing
terrorism but rather by according justice to the oppressed and respecting
the peoples’ rights in their countries.
Islam does not allow the shedding of innocent blood or terrorizing people
regardless of their creed or affiliation and incriminates attacking
civilian targets even in defencive wars as long as they are not directly
linked to war, the statement elaborated.
The Front underlined that Muslims were the target of terrorism and cited
many examples in Bosnia and Palestine that were carried out and still are
under the very nose of the whole world, which remained silent.
It said that the Zionist entity’s ongoing atrocious acts against the
Palestinians were no less terrible than what happened in New York and
