Beirut: Fadlallah bans muslims from collaborating with Americans against Iraq Grand Ayatollah Mohammed Hussein Fadlallah, the highest Shiite religious authority in Lebanon, issued a fatwa (religious edict) on Monday Aug 12, which bans muslims from collaborating with America in any military strike against Iraq. The fatwa reminds muslims throughout the world that God prohibits assisting infidels against Muslims. "It is not permissible to assist America and its allies in striking the Iraqi people or enabling it (America) to control their economic resources, natural wealth and general policy," Fadlallah said. "Muslims must handle their own affairs by themselves in changing the internal corrupt situation and eliminating the injustice (inflicted) on them in all Muslim countries" According to his office, Fadlallah issued the fatwa amid U.S. preparations for a possible attack on Iraq and after he had been questioned about his ruling on Muslim cooperation with America. _________________________________________________________ Enjoy your secure on-line shopping experience with Shop@maktoob Mall. http://www.maktoob.com/ _______________________________________________ Sent via the discussion list of the Campaign Against Sanctions on Iraq.
