Muslim elders: Orlando shootings ‘contradict teachings of Islam’

The Levant News — The Abu Dhabi-based Council of Muslim Elders, headed by Grand Imam Ahmed al-Tayeb of Al-Azhar University in Cairo, rejected an Islamic State sympathizer’s murder of 49 people at an Orlando nightclub. In a statement, the council denounced “these repugnant terrorist acts which contradict the docile teachings of Islam.” Without referring to the victims’ sexual orientation, the council went on to criticize the West for taking advantage of the situation to spread Islamophobia.
