In a Bid to Curb "Militancy and Extremism," Egypt Launches Campaign to Remove, Ban Salafi Books From Mosques

That means no Wahhab (whose religious teachings continue to inspire the Saudis) and no al-Qaradawi (the Muslim Brotherhood's current numero uno holy roller), for two. As one commenter points out, however, "even if they remove all the books, the sunnah must be there, whether they like it or not."

Meaning that the teachings and deeds of Islam's founder, which Muslims are commanded to emulate, will continue to exist and inspire some to wage jihad even in the absence of these specific "extremist" texts.
