SYRIAN JIHAD: Iran, Hezbollah and the Syrian regime have waged a “war on Islam,” says Egyptian preacher Mohamed Hassan following the Muslim Scholars’ conference in Cairo on Thursday. The gathering brought together representatives of more than 70 Sunni Muslim organizations from the Islamic world.

“We’re obliged to jihad in order to assist our brothers in Syria,” the congress spokesman says, “with fighters, funding and arms.” Video courtesy of Syrian Media Center
