Syrian President Bashar al-Assad called today for a battle against Wahhabism, the political and religious ideology embraced by the Saudi government.

SANA said "President al-Assad stressed that extremist and Wahhabi thought distort the real Islam, which is tolerant", adding "he underlined the role of men of religion in fighting against Wahhabi thought, which is foreign to our societies".

Wahhabism is an ultra-conservative Muslim tradition, which is predominant in Saudi Arabia and applied to both religious and political life.

Saudi Arabia is a key backer of the extremist groups fighting against Syrian army, and Damascus government accuses the kingdom of funding terrorists seeking to destroy Syria.
