Blessed Terrorism

In President Bush’s press conference a few days ago, he said the following about terrorist attacks across the globe:

None of these acts is the work of a religion; all are the work of a fanatical, political ideology.

While it can be argued that Islam itself may not be the problem, but rather some extremist adherents of the faith, the distinction is becoming increasingly hard to make since leading Islamic religious figures who make religious rulings (Fatwas) are openly endorsing terrorism. MEMRI reports on the latest example of this.

A GROUP OF MUFTIS ISSUED A FATWA AUTHORIZING THE KILLING OF ARABS WHO GIVE INFORMATION ON TERRORISTS TO ‘ENEMIES OF ISLAM.’ (ISLAMONLINE.COM, 4/12/04)

If these Fatwas are mandatory for all Muslims, then doesn’t the problem also lie within the religion, or at least the hierarchy of authority within it, and not just some wacko fringe elements?

  1. Amigo,

    Islam doesn’t have any “hierarchy of authority” like christianism or judaism … only people who pretend to be so,(and their followers).

    salam.
