Syria Mufti calls for suicide operations

Sheikh Ahmed Kaftaro, Syria’s Mufti and highest Muslim religious authority called on Muslims Thursday to resort to “martyrdom operations” against coalition forces waging war on Iraq. Mufti Kaftaro said in a statement that Muslims should use “all possible means to defeat the aggression, including martyrdom (suicide) operations against the invading combatants.” “Resisting the invaders is an obligation on every Muslim man and woman, primarily from among the Iraqi people and then the closest ones depending on the need,” he said. He also called on all Muslims around the world “to boycott the products of the U.S., Britain and their allies,” as well as to “escalate protests and demonstrations, to observe strikes in airports and ports (used by the coalition forces) and do everything possible to obstruct support of this unjust war and to defeat it.” In an implicit reference to Kuwait and Qatar, Kaftaro called on the “governments which are offering facilities to the war on the Muslims to stop immediately from backing this war.” Full Story
