Egypt

Egypt is a committed member of the Global Coalition against Daesh. Through Al-Azhar and Dar Al-Ifta, the beacons of moderate Islamic thought, Egypt provides the backbone of the narrative of moderate, tolerant Islam that the Coalition aims to reinforce to counter Daesh’s ideology.

Egypt has long been the target of vicious terrorism, but we have endured and moved forward. Today we are more determined than ever to confront and defeat Daesh and all other terrorist groups, not only through military action but also through counter-messaging and halting the flow of funds to terrorist groups.
