Spanish Muslim clerics, in consultation with others in Libya and Morocco, have issued a fatwah against bin Laden and al Qaeda. We, and resources available for immediate consultation, remain vague on its meaning or reach. This Telegraph article contextualizes the matter somewhat, after it came to our attention in the Austin American Statesman:
The fatwa said that, according to the Quran, "the terrorist acts of Osama bin Laden and his organization al Qaeda . . . are totally banned and must be roundly condemned as part of Islam."
