 In a statement to "Ikhwanweb" the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar affirmed that the Movement was "Just as entitled as any other  National political party or Islamist group to participate in its activities so long as it adhered and conformed to regulations.


Tayeb asserted that he welcomed the Brotherhood's observance to the principle of constructive criticism describing it as mature and cultured. He established that the Azhar institution was open to any Islamic effort which would benefit the Azhar's institution and enrich its history.


He rebuffed allegations that he was appointed as Grand Imam simply because he was a member of the National Democratic Party claiming that his position demanded he be neutral and any decisions made would be based on the Azhar, Egypt and Islam's welfare in mind.


With regards to the Institutions educational syllabus he denied any rumors that the system would be changed stressing that the current curriculum was suitable for all students.


Tayeb concluded his statement on the current affairs taking place with the Israeli aggression on the Palestinian people and in particular the Aqsa Mosque "The Palestinian factions must set aside their differences and unite in the face of the tyranny practiced through the Israeli oppression. It is imperative that the Arab League prioritize their agenda and converse in defense of the Muslims Holy sites".
