As the West grapples with the increasing reach of ISIS on home soil and as random and planned acts of terrorism continue to develop, the Islamic world is not siting idly by.
Earlier this week in his speech before the United Nations, US President Barack Obama signaled out the leadership being offered by a group of Muslim Clerics led by Shaykh Abdallah bin Bayyah. This group, known as the Forum for Promoting Peace in Muslim Societies, issued a very powerful Fatwā* in opposition to the actions of ISIS and as a warning to young Muslims who may be attracted to its cause.
Entitled This is Not the Path to Paradise, Response to ISIS, the fatwā highlights that ISIS actions are against the tenets of Islam.
This is addressed to the young men who bear arms against their own nations and destroy both country and countrymen. You have abandoned all values and made enemies of the world. We call on you to pause, reflect, and heed this counsel for the sake of all who want good for our community.
It then offers 4 quotes from Islamic teachings before continuing with A Statement to the Muslim World and its Leaders reminding them to Remember and Consider the Question Why?
It is powerful stuff and it takes aim at Fatwās which have justified bloodshed while disregarding Islamic laws mandates of civil obedience, respect for life, and to refrain from divisiveness, irrespective of how morally degraded a society becomes. Instead, there are inappropriate claims of engaging in jihad and addressing the ills of society without fulfilling the conditions of doing so, which has led to even more suffering.

If this “Sheikh” thought he was really saying something that would make ISIS want to assassinate him, he wouldn’t have said it.
Taqquiyah, pure & simple. Case closed.
Meanwhile, the murderous muzzies will strike here soon. Dip your bullets in pig grease.
It’s just CYA and hide the fact ISIS = islam = satan’s death cult.
Was he SLEEPING?
And our Quislings will point to this meaningless taqqiya exercise as “proof” of so-called “moderate Islam.”
This is just one of the problems with Islam; no ONE speaks for Islam.
With the exception of Roman Catholicism and the Pope, are there any religions that have ONE supreme earthly authority?
And Obama has made speeches saying that, in some cases, terrorists are bad guys and need to be stopped......
“Dip your bullets in pig grease.”...........
I do it all the time!
Straight from obama's book of lines in the sand and sternly worded letters.
