Following are excerpts
from an address by Sheik Muhammad Ashur, deputy rector of Al-Azhar University,
which aired on Al-Alam TV on September 30, 2011:
I say to all my brothers and sisters: Jihad has become an individual
duty incumbent upon each and every one of us, because our enemies have
grown arrogant and have persisted in their great tyranny. In an even
uglier display, they publicly declare their support and defense of injustice,
even though they boast that they denounce any injustice and that they
are the ones who legislate human rights.
But the rights of what
human are they defending and supporting? They support the unjust oppressors,
the offspring of pigs and apes.
