Spanish Muslims issue fatwa against Al-Qaeda's Osama Bin Laden

MADRID (AFX) - Spain's Islamic Commission, which groups the nation's Muslim community, said it was issuing a fatwa against Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, 'We are going to issue a fatwa (religious decree) against Bin Laden this afternoon,' Mansour Escudero, who leads the Federation of Islamic religious entities (Feeri) and co-secretary general of the Spanish governmenmt-created Commission told AFP.

The Commission invited Spanish-based imams to condemn terrorism at Friday prayers, when the whole country will be remembering the 191 people who were killed in the train blasts and the 1,900 injured a year ago. The attacks have been blamed on mainly Moroccan Islamic extremists loyal to Bin Laden. 'We have called on imams to make a formal declaration condemning terrorism and for a special prayer for all the victims of terrorism,' Escudero said.

The Commission has also drawn up a document designed to 'thank the Spanish people and the government for their attitude towards Muslims' since last March 11, in particular for not taking 'disproportionate' measures similar to those which the Sept 11 attacks sparked in the US.

The Commission called on Muslims to take part in Friday's commemorative programme being organised by Spanish authorities and community groups and to work with them to ensure terrorism was defeated.

Good for the imams of Spain! For those of you in the U.S, especially, note that Spain has an Islamic neighbor to the south, Morocco. I personally know some Muslims from Morocco, and they are some of the nicest people I have ever known. They came here to go to school. One was trained as a psychiatrist in Morocco and did a residency in New York and knew my sisters. They were very good friends the whole time she was in the States. I think this is a very good development.

A $30M reward didn't really work.

I don't think a fatwa will be motivation enough.

What my muslim brothers (well, ex-brothers) really seem to respond to well is the promise of 72 virgins in the afterlife.

"Get Bin Laden and you'll be knee deep in eternal Virgin nekkedity."

It would be great if this caught on and similar organizations issued the same statement

I say a $50 million reward for bin Laden's head is fair enough.

too little too late..

anyway i dont give any importance to any announcement by any religious leaders.

i dont have time to care for it and i dont think such things has any importance or relevance in the modern world.

the least it can do is to change my mind or opinion about anyone or anything.
