Moderator's Note: This is significant as the World of Islam takes to task the Islamofascists for their interpretation of the "true faith."
Sorry for the choppy justification. I'll fix later.

Subject: Resolution of Condemnation by Muslims Against Al Qaeda, ALL Suicide Bombers and
From: "Free Muslims Against Terrorism" <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Resolution of Condemnation by Muslims Against Al Qaeda, ALL Suicide Bombers and other
On Friday, March 11, a remarkable thing happened in Madrid, Spain. A large number of
clerics from the Islamic Conference of Spain issued a very tough fatwa (religious
opinion) which condemned Osama bin Laden as an "apostate" and as a "kafir" (an infidel)
and for violating the teachings of Islam.
This public and formal condemnation goes much farther than the Bush Administration or
any other government has gone to date.
We, Muslims in America and Canada appreciate this courageous step by the Spanish Muslim
clerics and we seek to support them and go one step further by offering a road map to
winning the ideological battle against all terrorists who justify their crimes by
relying on a fascist misinterpretation of Islam.
At present, al Qaeda and its clones call their murderous cause "Jihad" (Holy War), their
assassins "mujahiddin" (holy warriors) and "martyrs" and their destiny Paradise. All
too often, these are the same words that we (including virtually all Governments,
academia, media and assorted other "experts") carelessly use for them -- thus tending to
confirm their patently false terms of self-sanctification.
The use of words with positive meanings is deadly and has helped many terrorists market
their evil and criminal acts as acts of good and justice. We seek to define these evil
criminals with negative terms rather than let them define themselves with positive
terms. The Islamic labels that must be applied are those of "Hirabah" (unholy war) by
"mufsidoon" (evildoers) on their way to "Jahannam" (eternal Hellfire), instead.
By rejecting the terms used by terrorist suicide murderers we can go a long way in
wining the ideological war against terrorists.
Now that these faithful and brave Spanish clerics have broken the ice and have declared
an authentic Jihad against the al Qaeda evildoers, other terrorists and suicide bombers,
we request the Muslim clergy and Muslims in general to reiterate their support for this
condemnation without equivocation or explain their refusal to do so.
In redefining Bin Laden, all terrorists, including ALL suicide bombers as criminals we
offer the following Resolution of Condemnation:
a) we denounce the ongoing attack on America, the West, Muslims and all innocent people
of the world. This attack is not "Jihad" (Holy War) but a heinous crime and a mortal
sin of Hirabah (Unholy War which is a forbidden "war against humanity");
b) we label those who are fomenting and waging this forbidden type of warfare as
mufsidoon (evildoers) and muharibun (unholy warriors) and not as the mujaheddin (holy
warriors) or the shahiddin (martyrs) they falsely claim to be;
c) we affirm that unless these evildoers cease their evil ways, turn themselves to the
proper authorities, we will oppose them, expose them, fight them with writing, speaking,
and organizing for they are criminals, and enemies of Muslims and all civilization;
d) we proclaim that this forbidden slaughter of innocent people, fomenting of hatred
among religions, communities and nations, and condemnation of everyone but themselves
as "infidels" and many other violations of Quranic law are not the will of God but
rather, criminal acts and the evil deeds of those who wants to play the role of God;
e) we conclude that such blasphemy and crimes against humanity-- by Al Qaeda, ALL
suicide bombers and other terrorists no matter what their cause may be is an unholy war
by evildoers and criminals who are placing young Muslims, and themselves, in mortal
danger of eternal damnation and world-wide condemnation;
f) we conclude that the death, destruction and mayhem perpetrated by Al Qaeda, other
terrorists and ALL suicide bombers have not been approved by the merciful, compassionate
and just God of us all but, rather, by a hate-filled and violent group of criminal
fascist cults which are plainly shaitaniyah (satanic) in nature;
g) we affirm that it is a moral, ethical and Islamic duty for all Muslims to uphold
these declarations by aiding and abetting established authorities around the world in
apprehending these mufsidoon (evildoers) and muharibun (unholy warriors).
h) Let it be known that this resolution of condemnation does not solely represent the
beliefs of the authors. This resolution is inspired by the Islam we know and our holy
book, the Koran as we understand it. The Koran has many paragraphs that support our
beliefs and this resolution. In one chapter for instance, the Koran reads that "whoever
slays a soul?is considered like slaying all of humanity and whoever save a soul shall be
considered as saving all of humanity." In another chapter the Koran reads that "Wars
are not holy in anyway when Lives are lost." With this resolution we are merely
affirming the Islam we know and rejecting the misinterpretation of Islam by the
terrorists. With this resolution, we seek to take our religion back from the criminals
who hijacked it and encourage all Muslims around the world to stand up to the
terrorists, fanatics and extremists because no Muslim can afford to remain silent. The
civilized world is counting on us.
Finally, we offer the following "bill of particulars" which fully justifies our
resolution of condemnation against Al Qaeda, ALL suicide bombers and other terrorists:
* Wanton killing of innocents and noncombatants, including Jews, Christians, Muslims and
people of other faiths
* Decapitating the bodies of the living and desecrating the dead bodies of perceived enemies
* Committing and enticing others to commit suicide bombings with the false promise of
paradise as a reward for their terrorism. Committing suicide is a sin in Islam with no
* Fomenting hatred among communities, nations, religions and civilizations
* Ruthless warring against non Muslim-nations in which Islam is freely practiced
* Issuing and inspiring unauthorized and un-Islamic fatwas (religious opinion)
* Forcing their version of Islam on Muslims, when the Quran clearly says that there
shall be "no compulsion in religion"
* Distorting the word "infidels" to include all Christians, all Jews and many Muslims,
when the Quran calls them all "People of the Book" (the Old Testament ), "Sons of
Abraham," and calls Jesus one of God?s primary messengers and the Messiah. Moreover,
the Quran specifically says that Christians, Jews, Muslims and others who believe in God
and who do good work for mankind are destined for heaven
* Deliberate misreading, ignoring and perverting of passages of the Quran to suit the
arrogant and soul-less ambitions
This resolution has been endorsed by Muslims in America, Canada and the Middle East. We
ask all Muslim organizations, mosques and Muslims in general to sign on this resolution
by sending an email to Kamal Nawash at email@example.com
Once we receive a complete list of endorsers, we seek to publish this resolution in
various news papers and web-sites catering to Muslims. Will you join us and help take
back our religion for the terrorist and evildoers?
