The United American Committee board of directors today officially denounce the “fatwa” against terrorism issued on July 28th by several American Islamic organizations.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) August 9, 2005 — Best known for its actions to counter Islamic extremism in America, the United American Committee continues its strife by denouncing what it deemed to be a bogus “˜Fatwa,” or Islamic verdict against terrorism, which was issued by several established American Islamic organizations in the past week.
“These groups are only deceiving America, they fail to mention any terrorists or terror groups by name, they merely state that they do not condone the unjust killing of the innocent, or civilians.” remarks U.A.C. chairman Jesse Petrilla, “non-believers are not innocent according to Islamic law, and we are not civilians according to Islamic jihad, we are the enemy, and according to Islamic extremists, our killing is not unjustified.”
One of the groups tied to the fatwa against terror was the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC). The Untied American Committee adamantly objects to a statement made by one of MPACs founding members, Dr. Maher Hathout of Egypt, a U.S. citizen. In that statement he essentially issued a fatwa of death against a Los Angeles homeless activist by the name of Ted Hayes.
“As long as they”re talking about fatwas, what about the fatwa on my life?” says Hayes, whose outspoken opinions against Islamic extremism have gained him friends and foes alike. “How can these groups issue a fatwa against terrorism and extremism, yet their members issue other fatwas which seem to support terrorism and extremism?”
With several thousand citizens behind the organization, and growing at a profound rate, the United American Committee is not more than a year old. A group which strives to promote awareness of Islamic extremist threats which face America from within, the United American Committee is a growing political movement dedicated to awaking Washington and America on the issue of Islamic extremism.
