Al-Azhar, the most influential theological and university center of Sunni Islam, reaffirmed after the beheading of the French professor on the outskirts of Paris "the need to pass international laws that criminalize attacks on religions and their symbols".
That means a demand for a global law against "Islamophobia" so that it should no longer be the "duty" of terrorists to behead unpopular people, but rather the Islamophile governments do it directly.
Today the Imam of Al-Azhar, Al-Tayyeb, spoke at the peace meeting in Rome, at which Pope Francis was also present. His proclamation:
"I distance myself and the rules of the Islamic religion" from the "sinful crime and from those who pursue perverse ideologies." "The terrorist does not represent Mohammed." But "the insults of religions and the abuse of sacred symbols under the motto of freedom of expression is a form of intellectual ambiguity."
In short, those who behead and those who show a caricature of Muhammad are on the same level.
