    Exclamation 'Terrorist acts' of bin Laden 'totally banned'

    'Terrorist acts' of bin Laden 'totally banned'


    MADRID, Spain (AP) -- Muslim clerics in Spain issued what they called the world's first fatwa, or Islamic edict, against Osama bin Laden on Thursday, the first anniversary of the Madrid train bombings, calling him an apostate and urging others of their faith to denounce the al Qaeda leader.

    The ruling was issued by the Islamic Commission of Spain, the main body representing the country's 1 million-member Muslim community. The commission represents 200 or so mostly Sunni mosques, or about 70 percent of all mosques in Spain.

    The March 11, 2004, train bombings killed 191 people and were claimed in videotapes by militants who said they had acted on al Qaeda's behalf in revenge for Spain's troop deployment in Iraq.

    The commission's secretary general, Mansur Escudero, said the group had consulted with Muslim leaders in other countries, such as Morocco -- home to most of the jailed suspects in the bombings -- Algeria and Libya, and had their support.

    "They agree," Escudero said, referring to the Muslim leaders in the three North African countries. "What I want is that they say so publicly."

    The fatwa said that according to the Quran "the terrorist acts of Osama bin Laden and his organization al Qaeida ... are totally banned and must be roundly condemned as part of Islam."

    It added: "Inasmuch as Osama bin Laden and his organization defend terrorism as legal and try to base it on the Quran ... they are committing the crime of 'istihlal' and thus become apostates that should not be considered Muslims or treated as such."

    The Arabic term "istihlal" refers to the act of making up one's own laws.

    Escudero said a fatwa can be issued by any Muslim leader who leads prayer sessions and as he serves such a role, he himself lawfully issued the edict.

    He called it an unprecedented condemnation of bin Laden. "We felt now we had the responsibility and obligation to make this declaration," he said in an interview.

    "I hope there is a positive reaction from Muslims," he added.

    Asked if the edict meant Muslims had to help police try to arrest the world's most wanted man -- who is believed to be hiding along the border between Pakistan and Afghanistan -- Escudero said: "We don't get involved in police affairs but we do feel that all Muslims are obliged to ... keep anyone from doing unjustified damage to other people."

    Yeah, that's going to stop this scumbag isn't it?

    Bin Laden just needs a couple rounds in his body. Then the guy that takes his place gets the same.

    The fatwa is just like the town in California that passed a city ordnance for detonating a nuclear weapon within the city limits. Useless.

    Well it might get someone to let us know where he is so those rounds can find their mark.

    That won't help. They'll just get kicked out like the Anglicans, or create thier own mini-muslim religion that requires black and white runners to be worn while chanting to Mohammed's space ship.

    Follow the rules and you won't be kicked out!

    but as long as they drink the KoolAid instead of blowing themselves up in public that would be fine with me.

    Notice how this is only after what happened in Spain. I guess what happened on 9-11 wasnt important enough. Figures
