Senior Turkish Shi’ite cleric, Sheikh Salahuddin Ozgunduz, blamed Israel for the emergence of the Islamic State terrorist group.

“By forming and supporting the Islamic State Takfiri group, the Zionists are now employing that as an instrument, and pursuing their objectives in this way,” the Turkish cleric told Iran’s Tasnim News Agency.

Ozgunduz called for Muslim nations to counter the growing threat of Takfiri groups, using both “military and cultural” approaches.
