Cairo - The terrorist group "ISIS" (also known as DAESH in Arabic) escalated its attack on preachers who oppose the group. In a new declaration entitled "Fight the leaders of disbelief", ISIS called for assassinating a number of prominent preachers.
ISIS has launched a new social media campaign calling upon supporters to assassinate the region’s prominent Muslim clerics on the crimes of being “agents” who “cooperate with the Crusader coalition” against the group.
The campaign, entitled #Fight_the_scholars_of_infidelity (#قاتلوا_أئمة_الكفر), began on Friday with an official, 23 minute-long video from Mosul, Iraq. It lists as targets a number influential scholars in Gulf States, Egypt, and across the Middle East, including the Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated cleric Yusuf al-Qaradawi, the Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia Abdel Aziz Al al-Sheikh, and the former Grand Mufti of Egypt Ali Gomaa—along with their pictures. The video called for “the believing soldiers” to kill the “scholars of evil,” who, it said, provided Islamic fatwas justifying the fight against ISIS that worked to support West in its war against the group.
The group said: "killing scholars is more lovable to us than killing police detectives and intelligence staff", justifying that "they are the crusaders partners in the war" against "ISIS".
The organization asked their elements who preferred to travel to Syria
and Iraq to target the Sheikhs in their countries in compensation for
travelling and described them as "donkeys harming the jihadis"
list of the Sheikhs mentioned by "ISIS" is: "'Abdel Aziz Aal
Al-Sheikh', 'Mohamed Al-Areefy', 'Aaed Al-Karny', 'Saad Al-Bareek',
'Saleh Al-Maghamsy', 'Saad Al-Shathry', 'Nasser Al-Omar', Abdel Aziz
Al-Fawzan', 'Aly Al-Malky', in addition to 'Youssef Al-Karadawy', 'Nabil
Al-Awady', 'Ahmed Al-Tayeb', 'Aly Gomaa', 'Mohamed Badei', 'Mohamed
