US Muslim jurists forbid aid to troops

From Al-Arabiya (with thanks to Will):

WASHINGTON (Ahmed al-Shiti) The Assembly of Muslim Jurists of America (AMJA) issued a fatwa prohibiting offering aid to foreign troops in Muslim countries whether on the personal or the business levels.

The assembly, made up of jurists and scholars in charge of issuing fatwas for Muslims in the United States and headed by Sheikh Salah al-Sawy, received several inquiries about the stance of Islam on business deals with coalition troops in Iraq or NATO forces in Afghanistan, especially companies that transfer foodstuffs and other supplies to military bases.
The question was posted on AMJA fatwa bank, reads: “Is it permissible to participate in taking food to the American and foreign soldiers working in Muslim lands?” and the answer is, “That would not be permissible, for that would be helping others in sin and transgression.”

The fatwa, number 3062 to be issued by the assembly, stipulated that Muslims are not to help foreigners on personal or business basis as long as their presence in Muslim countries is linked to occupation.

What legal standing does this have? Would this not be based in Sharia law? If so, would they be able to enforce it, or does this just have the standing of a religious body putting their 2 cents worth in?

Certainly clarifies their attitude towards American citizenship for members of the ummah, though. Americans are "foreigners" and helping our troops is "sin and transgression".

So much, once again, for the "moderate muslim" fallacy. Any "moderate muslim" who ignores this is, according to their Muslim jurists, is disobeying a fatwa.

Good luck at seeing much coverage of this in the MSM.

No, this has no legal authority. It's just a bunch of clerics telling their Ummah what to do.

time to get out of all Borglam countries.. destroy anything left behind.

create a Manhattan Project style endeavor to go total runnable energy in 20 years.. cut back 30% on foreign oil put that money into solar and wind.. and conservation.

we will have to go to underground homes.. no heat/no cooling, wont blow away in a storm, we need to decide what cities need to be abandoned and relocated out of the new flood plains and coastal areas.. ban rebuilding in flood potential areas of NOLA ..etc.. we cant waste money any more on bull shit like CEO bonuses, not paying taxes on off show accounts, find em and jail the account holders.

do something serious about the richest 20% holding 93% of financial wealth.. that is a crime.


we only have a short time left...
