After the Barcelona Terrorist Attack, We Renew our Call for the Prosecution and Trial of Terrorism Clergymen by the International Criminal Court


After the Barcelona Terrorist Attack, We Renew our Call for the Prosecution and Trial of Terrorism Clergymen by the International Criminal Court

The Statement of the International Quranic Center (IQC):

1- Since the 1990s, the whole world has witnessed so many terrorist attacks by Wahabis, incited by sheikhs and clergymen of the Sunnite Wahabi religion, especially inside the Cairo-based Al-Azhar institution, in Egypt, as this institution is the religious references to all Sunnite Muslims worldwide whose number exceeds 1 billion person. 

2- The West countries do their best in their endeavors to prevent or at least lessen the number of such terrorist crimes, but they mostly fail because they overlook the mission of drying the intellectual sources of Wahabi terrorism; they only focus on tightening security measures. Sadly, the West countries are eager to please the KSA – the source and sponsor of the terrorist Wahabi religion. They are also eager to please the head of Al-Azhar institution, Ahmed Al-Tayyib, who is a fanatical sheikh who propagates ad supports the Sunnite Wahabi religion of terror. This head of Al-Azhar is in full control of the religious thought in Egypt to the extent that he has forced the Egyptian President, Abdel-Fattah Al-Sisi, to stop pursuing any efforts to reform the religious discourse. The influence of this head of Al-Azhar has led to the incarceration of two reformist thinkers who have dared to question and discuss Azharite curricula that form the minds of the Azharite students to turn them into terrorists who indiscriminately kill anyone who does not follow their Wahabi religion. It is well-known that all leaders and imams of Wahabi terrorism are either among Al-Azhar University graduates or among those who did post graduate studies at Al-Azhar University; e.g. leaders of the terrorist MB, leaders of Boko Haram, Al-Qaeda leaders like Al-Zawahiri, and Omar Abdul-Rahman.            

3- After a terrorist attack inside the USA in June, 2016, we have written an article (in English) titled "A Campaign Calling for Prosecuting Terrorist Sheikhs in the International Criminal Court", which can be found on this link:

Now, after the Barcelona terrorist attacks of the 17th of August, 2017, we repeat the same call for prosecution and trial of the head of al-Azhar, who sponsors and propagates terrorist ideology, by the International Criminal Court (ICC), in hope of saving future victims.   

4- It is clear to us that since ISIS terrorists are being defeated in Iraq and Syria, they will focus their terrorist operations in many countries in the West, and this is easier for the ISIS terrorists; the Wahabi religion of terror that has hijacked the name of Islam and speaks falsely in its name spreads all over mosques and 'Islamic' centers in the West countries, while being sponsored by the KSA and other Gulf monarchies. The current head of Al-Azhar stops anyone from undermining, criticizing, and questioning the terrorist Wahabi religion of ISIS, as this man is protected by the Saudi influence in Egypt. In addition, the KSA chases those who criticize the Wahabi religion by death threats and levels accusations of apostasy at them to force them to remain silent so as not to get killed, as being put to the death is the punishment for 'infidels' in the Wahabi Sunnite religion, which has nothing to do with Islam. Thus, the threat to be assassinated is the lethal weapon to terrorize anyone who dares to question or undermine the Sunnite Wahabi religion, and this way, the KSA protects the Wahabi ideology from being criticized. This means that ISIS organization, and any other terrorist organizations that will emerge after it, will have no difficulty at all in recruiting more Sunnite youths in the USA and other countries of the West to turn them into terrorists and suicide-bombers who will be eager to kill themselves and other innocent people anytime anywhere – no one can ever guess when and where their attacks will be next time.          

5- This is a new kind of war and all military and security measures will be of no use in such a war. The only solution is intellectual confrontation by drying intellectual sources of Wahabi terrorism from within Real Islam (i.e., Quranism). This peaceful, intellectual war of ideas is the mission of Quranists within our website ( and our YouTube channel, with our Quranist videos subtitled into English:  

Yet, Quranists are suffering media black-out and being ignored and overlooked by others; this is why our call for the prosecution and trial of terrorism Azharite sheikhs and clergymen by the ICC has not yet reached all concerned parties.    

6- Are we going to be compelled again to write the same call after the next terrorist attack that will occur anywhere anytime?! Are we going to wait for more victims who will suffer because of those who are reluctant to face Wahabi terrorism Azharite sheikhs and clergymen?! Would the prosecution and trial of the Azharite criminals who incite terrorism and massacres be too difficult to the extent that the West countries will let more bloodshed to occur to thousands of innocent people like thousands of victims before them?! 

7- We appeal to your conscience and your sense of nationalism.
