How many times are Muslim groups in the West going to peddle this particular brand of snake oil? I guess as long as they find willing Infidel buyers, and there is no shortage of those.
The problem with this is that it once again condemns attacks on “innocent civilians.” But the Islamic jihadists believe that “non-Muslims are never innocent, they are guilty of denying Allah and his prophet.” So if they believe that non-Muslims are never innocent, a fatwa declaring that attacks against innocent civilians is not going to stop them from mounting attacks against non-Muslims, now, is it?

A leading Muslim organisation in Britain has issued a fatwa against suicide bombings and terrorism, declaring them un-Islamic.
Minhaj-ul-Quran, a Sufi organisation based in East London which advises the Government on how to combat radicalisation of Muslim youth, will launch the 600-page religious verdict tomorrow. It condemns the perpetrators of terrorist explosions and suicide bombings.
The document, written by Dr Muhammed Tahir-ul-Qadri, a former minister of Pakistan and friend of Benazir Bhutto, declares suicide bombings and terrorism as “totally un-Islamic”. It is one of the most detailed and comprehensive documents of its kind to be published in Britain.
The fatwa, which was released in Pakistan last month, uses texts from the Koran and other Islamic writings to argue that attacks against innocent citizens are “absolutely against the teachings of Islam and that Islam does not permit such acts on any excuse, reason or pretext”.
Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri, who is based in Canada and has written more than 400 books on Islamic law, said: “All these acts are grave violations of human rights and constitute kufr, disbelief, under Islamic law.”…
