The World Organization for al-Azhar Graduates released a statement, in which it stressed that ISIS threat to unleash deadly attacks against Egypt, during the upcoming presidential elections, is but a desperate attempt to give a relief to the terrorist groups in Sinai. In the same context, the statement paid tribute to the efforts exerted by the Egyptian army in demolishing the terrorists' strongholds.
The Organization's statement underlined that ISIS and its affiliates bear in their mind that Egypt and its army stand as an obstacle in their way to attain their heinous aims in the region, such as spreading chaos and rioting, fragmenting and disrupting the Muslim Ummah. Indeed, ISIS and its affiliates use the criminal groups to achieve their wicked purposes.
The statement pointed out that describing the participation in the presidential elections as blasphemy is an evidence of the flawed doctrinal thinking of such terrorist groups. The statement added that such description is an encroachment upon the rules of the Islamic Shari'ah and the Prophetic Sunnah, and a misuse of the Islamic terminologies to mislead the common.
The statement posed a question: "during the rule of the Muslim Brotherhood group, none of the terrorist groups, ISIS and its affiliates, declared that the presidential elections are blasphemy, and those responsible for them are tyrants. Ridiculously, they named the elections, then, as "the Polls Invasion"; so, what happened made ISIS and its affiliates change their minds?"
The statement highlighted that if ISIS and its affiliates own anything to terrorize the Egyptians, they will not release threatening statements or multimedia. The statement stressed that ISIS threatening record is an evidence of the heavy blows and strikes of the Egyptian army against the terrorist strongholds in Sinai and other places. The statement added that ISIS threatening record is but a desperate attempt to scare the ordinary people.
The Organization's statement assured the Egyptian people that: "Allah protects Egypt and its people, before there is an army to secure it, and that Allah promised to secure Egypt and its people, and no one can turn such promise into fear and destruction".
The statement demanded the whole world to stand shoulder to shoulder with Egypt to eradicate the remains of ISIS and its affiliates, especially that the terrorist group suffers weakness and fragmentation.
