The Last Ditch: Anti-Terrorism Fatwa

Posted by on July 28 at 11:14 AM

In a desperate attempt to recover Arab identity from the terrorist, who presently dominates the image of the Arab world and Islam, Muslim scholars in the US have issued a fatwa on terrorists. But it might be too little too late. A whole generation had to pass before Germans were finally recognized as Germans again, instead of Nazis. Maybe what the Muslim scholars should do is hire the best PR firm in the world to reduce (or remove entirely) the negative image that presently obscures all the other aspects of their religion. That might actually work.
