‘Islamul Azi’ Cultural Centre denounces journalist James Foley’s slaying by ISIS members

‘Islamul Azi’ (Islam Today) Islamic Cultural Centre and the Islamic and Cultural League of Romania denounce in a release on Thursday remitted to Agerpres US journalist James Foley’s slaying by Islamic State of Iraq and Levant (ISIS) group members.

‘Islamul Azi’ Islamic Cultural Centre and the Islamic and Cultural League of Romania show their profound disapproval of journalist James Foley’s murder by ISIS group members and send their condolences to his family members for the great loss they suffered.

‘Most Muslim clergymen worldwide declared the ISIS movement outside Islamism, as their actions contradict the Islamic teachings. The Muslims of Romania and worldwide disapprove of what ISIS does in Iraq and everywhere it has members spread. Although they say their actions are on behalf of an Islamic State, none of the Islam precepts contains an urge to such behaviour,’ shows a release signed by Abu al Ola Al Ghithy, president of ‘Islamul Azi’ Islamic Cultural Centre.

‘People’s life is sacred, regardless of their religion, skin colour or country of origin and nothing can justify a crime like this. Our pleas and prayers are now going to those trapped in the conflict areas worldwide and to the families of those who lost their dear ones in such conflicts. May God relieve their situation and pain!,’ the cited release points out.

A footage posted on the internet on Tuesday by the Jihad adepts showed a masked man dressed in black executing journalist James Foley, who had been kidnapped by armed men in Syria in November 2012.
