Islamic State is merely carrying out what’s in the Koran, admits Saudi cleric

Sheikh Adel Al-Kilbani, former Imam of the Grand Mosque in Mecca, admitted during a television appearance that ISIS merely shares the same beliefs as all Muslims who embrace what is contained in the Koran.

Asked if the emergence of ISIS was a result of “Islamic revivalism,” the Saudi cleric responded, “There’s no doubt about this, no doubt.”

Dismissing the claim that ISIS was created by “intelligence agencies,” Al-Kilbani goes on to assert, “Daesh has adopted Salafist thought….they draw their ideas from what is written in our own books, from our own principles.”

The cleric goes on to suggest that many Muslims agree with the Salafist philosophy behind ISIS, and that the only disagreement is with the way in which that philosophy is acted out from a public relations perspective.

“We do not criticize the thought on which it is based, such as the concept of apostasy,” states Al-Kilbani, suggesting that executions are justifiable for people who leave Islam, but that the “brutal” way in which ISIS kills people, “ruins our image in front of the world.”

“If we execute them in a way what does not show us in a bad light, then that’s fine,” he adds.

Al-Kilbani goes on to emphasize that ISIS is not acting outside of the framework of the Salafist doctrine embraced by Saudi Arabia and is merely following what is mandated in the Koran.

The Imam’s admission that many Muslims share the same radical beliefs as ISIS is merely in line with Pew research that shows intolerance pervades the Muslim world, with significant majorities in many middle eastern and north African countries supporting the execution of people who leave the faith, as well as the death penalty for homosexuals and alleged adulterers.

These sentiments have also been expressed by other prominent Muslim speakers.

During a conference held in May 2013, Norwegian Islamic leader Fahad Qureshi complained that the media often frames views such as “the death penalty for homosexuals” or the subjugation of women as only being held by radical Muslims.

“I always try to tell them that….these are general views that every Muslim actually has….every Muslim believes in these things,” said Qureshi.

Qureshi then asks the audience of Muslim attendees – black, white and Arab – to raise their hands if they agree with gender segregation and stoning women for adultery, as taught by the Koran.

Virtually every single ‘moderate’ Muslim in the room raises their hand to agree with these positions.
