Muslim Leaders Insist Islamic State Not Islamic
by John Rossomando
More than a dozen American Muslim leaders condemned the Islamic State's (IS) brutal tactics as contrary to Islam Wednesday during a press conference held at the National Press Club.
But in doing so, several speakers urged the public to ignore the terrorist group's theological motivations.
Talib Shareef, imam of Masjid Muhammad in Washington, D.C., exhorted the media to refer to IS as the "Anti-Islamic" State because its actions run contrary to the teachings of Mohammed.
