The pious Al-Azhar cleric (and Fatwa Committee member) he “debated,” on the other hand, regurgitating mainstream Islam’s conspiratorial Jew-hatred (see here, and here), including that of Al-Azhar’s previous and current Grand Imams, claimed Islamic State “caliph” al-Baghdadi was a Jew (“of Israeli origin”), acting out a Jewish (“Mossad”) conspiracy.

In an October 21 TV interview, Egyptian human rights activist Ahmad Harqan explained why he had become an atheist and said that Islam is a “harsh religion,” which was being implemented by ISIS and Boko Haram. They are doing “what the Prophet Muhammad and his companions did,” said Harqan. According to media reports, Harqan and his pregnant wife survived an assassination attempt on October 25, and when they went to the police to complain, were arrested for disrespect to Islam.
