It would be refreshing if even one of those who are condemning the Islamic State would explain how this misunderstanding of Islam spread to so many people all over the world. But they never will do so, and the mainstream media will never ask them to.
“Daesh terrorist acts have no link with Islam: Mufti adviser,” State Information Service, August 29, 2014:
An Adviser to Egypt’s Mufi said on Thursday that “Daesh” terrorist acts have no link to Islam.
During an interview with a France-owned TV channel, Ibrahim Negm said Darul Iftaa (House of Religious Opinion) launched an international campaign to urge the foreign media to use the term “Qaeda Separatists in Iraq and Syria (QSIS)” instead of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).
Negm said an English website was created as well to respond to the claims of this terrorist group.
