Shocking but facts need to be clarified when statements like this are put in the article:
"prominent Muslim clerics"
And the article itself is suspicious at best, as someone mentioned the title does not portray the contents of what is being published (but then that
was probably intentional sensationalism).
No, these people are no prominent, if they were the rest of the majority Muslim collective would not call them things like "Wahabis", a term applied
to most Arab Clerics (who seem hell bent on believing the rest of the world is evil).
These literalistic zealots will see the world as black and white hence why they are calling for such things but don't forget these are the same people
who are also stating certain Islamic religious sites and historical artefacts should be destroyed because of their literalistic view of everything in
Lazy journalists don't bother differentiating fact from fiction anymore, instead more than happy to label everything as one or the other, like calling
everyone who is not white "Black", tarnishing them with an unobjectionable narrow minded view.
No doubt someone is going to use this as an excuse to come out with a statement like "lets liberate Egypt from those pesky Islamists because they want
to destroy the pyramids"...really?
This site is about denying ignorance so lets try and do that for once.
