  1. MUHAMMAD SAYYID AL TANTAWI
    Muhammad Sayyid Al Tantawi, president of Al Azhar University (the most prominent and authoritative institute of Islamic jurisprudence in the world) also approves of killing and maiming Christians, Jews, and other infidels. He added, “This is not my personal view. This what the Shari’a Law says, the law of Allah, the only valid law on the earth.” [2.191] And kill them wherever you find them, and drive them out from whence they drove you out, and persecution is severer than slaughter, and do not fight with them at the Sacred Mosque until they fight with you in it, but if they do fight you, then slay them; such is the recompense of the unbelievers.
    [2.192] But if they desist, then surely Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
    [2.193] And fight with them until there is no persecution, and religion should be only for Allah, but if they desist, then there should be no hostility except against the oppressors.
    Translation of the meaning of the Quran AL-BAQARA…….

    1. you will all go to hell, the Allah you claim to be God, is a god is a demon thirsty for people’s blood, and you will all perish.
