In November of last year I mentioned a “code of jihad” that was released by the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group. It is a challenge to al-Quida philosophy on jihad (click here to read more and review). Today, Alan pointed out that a Muslim scholar in London has released a 600 page fatwa:
The 600—page fatwa says that “suicide bombings and attacks against civilian targets are not only condemned by Islam, but render the perpetrators totally out of the fold of Islam, in other words, to be unbelievers.” Mr. Qadri described the al—Qaeda movement as an “old evil with a new name” and said he believed that the overwhelming majority of young Muslims in Britain had not yet been radicalized and would “think again” on reading his proclamation.
I’d be interested to know if this fatwa is in response to the “code” released five months ago. Regardless, it’s one more step toward a greater understanding for the world, and of a new social reality.
