Leading British Muslim preachers have strongly condemned the Islamist militant group ISIS in an online video published this week aimed at deterring young British Muslims from fighting in Iraq and Syria.
Their denunciation of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and its self-proclaimed "caliphate" is considered to be the highest-profile kickback thus far from Muslim leaders in Britain to the extremist Islamist group that has taken control of large swathes of Northern and Western Iraq and Eastern Syria.
The British Imams appearing in the video described ISIS insurgents as corrupt, evil, viscous cowboys and terrorists.
They said their film aims to counter the digital-media campaign that ISIS and other extremist groups have started in an attempt to lure foreign fighters to its new caliphate.
[ISIS] are cowboys. They don't represent the religion and are not qualified to represent the religion..., said Sayed Ali Rizvi, head of the Majlis Ulama-e-Shia organization.
We are Muslims united against ISIS, against terrorism, against atrocity, against pain and suffering.
They dont represent the religion, theyre not qualified to represent the religion, he added.
Maulana Shahi Raza, lead Imam of Grand Mosque of Leicester, said he rejects the so-called Islamic State declared by ISIS.
As a Sunni Muslim I do not accept the khilafa (caliphate) of ISIS, Raza said in the clip.
I consider ISIS as a terrorist organization and they are trying to create corruption and fitna [division] within the Muslim world.
This condemnation comes as the British Foreign Office estimates that up to 500 Britons have traveled to Syria and Iraq to join the group.
The same Muslim preachers were behind an open letter signed earlier this month by more than 100 British imams warning British Muslims not to travel to conflict-torn countries, according to the BBC.
Pot calling Kettle....come in Kettle...
There, fixed it.
You can have no idea how accurate that statement actually is...
Unless you’ve been there. :)
The “Cowboy” reference is liberal speak for “Bush”. So what is the difference between liberals and jihad? Nothing! Bush scared the hell out of them. Now we have the weakest POTUS and “Dey not on de run!
Never heard of a cowboy muzzie. They wear the hat & boots?
This one does. ROTFLOL
Ray Allen is an urban cowboy from Texas searching for answers about his new faith, Islam. This summer, Ray found a home for his dog, quit his job, sold his house, and secured a teaching position in the jagged snow-capped mountains of Sulaymaniyah, the capital city for Iraqi Kurdistan, or Suly, for short. An unusual spot for a former-Catholic-turned-Muslim who is comfortable in cowboy boots, loves to watch (American) football, and brews his own super sweet iced tea.
... rest at link.
This is all a diversion. Muslims are allowed to lie to non-believers if it will help defeat them. This is only meant to calm the fears of the Brits.
I hope they have good unemployment benefits in the UK (I’m sure they do...as they value unemployed people more than employed across the pond) - as there are going to be a handful of Imams looking for work soon once the Saudis get word of this blasphemy.
Can’t have all the Muzzie boys running off to get killed fighting other Muslims when there are infidel European nations to conquer...
Stop insulting cowboys!
