Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) August 10, 2005
Best known for its actions to counter Islamic extremism in America, the United American Committee continues its strife by denouncing what it deemed to be a bogus ÂFatwa,Â or Islamic verdict against terrorism, which was issued by several established American Islamic organizations in the past week.
ÂThese groups are only deceiving America, they fail to mention any terrorists or terror groups by name, they merely state that they do not condone the unjust killing of the innocent, or civilians.Â remarks U.A.C. chairman Jesse Petrilla, Ânon-believers are not innocent according to Islamic law, and we are not civilians according to Islamic jihad, we are the enemy, and according to Islamic extremists, our killing is not unjustified.Â
One of the groups tied to the fatwa against terror was the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC). The Untied American Committee adamantly objects to a statement made by one of MPACs founding members, Dr. Maher Hathout of Egypt, a U.S. citizen. In that statement he essentially issued a fatwa of death against a Los Angeles homeless activist by the name of Ted Hayes.
ÂAs long as theyÂre talking about fatwas, what about the fatwa on my life?Â says Hayes, whose outspoken opinions against Islamic extremism have gained him friends and foes alike. ÂHow can these groups issue a fatwa against terrorism and extremism, yet their members issue other fatwas which seem to support terrorism and extremism?Â
With several thousand citizens behind the organization, and growing at a profound rate, the United American Committee is not more than a year old. A group which strives to promote awareness of Islamic extremist threats which face America from within, the United American Committee is a growing political movement dedicated to awaking Washington and America on the issue of Islamic extremism.
