The International Quranic Center IQC "is committed to spreading a vision of Islam that is true to the letter and spirit of the Quran and that focuses on the consistency between the word of God and democracy and human rights...

"The International Quranic Center continues the struggle of its founder Dr. Ahmed Subhy Mansour to further a vision of moderate Islam. As an asylee from Egypt now living in the U.S., Dr. Mansour is an internationally respected and distinguished scholar of the Quran with expertise in Islamic history, culture, theology and politics. Dr. Mansour’s interpretation of Islam offers a fact-based understanding of the letter and spirit of the Quran and its systematic application in a manner that enhances the values of democracy and religious tolerance.

"To achieve its goals, the IQC sponsors research, convenes conferences, and disseminates the ideas of its founder, Sheikh Ahmed Suby Mansour and like-minded advocates in the U.S. and abroad. IQC will communicate these ideas through both scholarly and educational publications, Arabic and English-language websites, movies and TV productions. The Center will be in constant communication with the international media and decision makers to educate them about true Islam. IQC speaks out about misrepresentations of basic Islamic ideas by those who create hatred and misinterpret the fundamental tenets of Islam.

"The IQC Board includes Muslims, Christians, and Jews." [1]
