Islamic Fatwa Issued Against al-Shabaab for Murder of Omar Hammami
American jihadi Omar Hammami was murdered "in cold blood," a Somalia-based Islamic center said, backing up reports that the militant from Alabama was killed Thursday by his rivals within the Somali Islamic extremist group al-Shabab.The Islamic penalty for murder is death.
The Islamic World Issues Study Center published a tribute online in which it describes the killings of Hammami, 29, and two other militants as a "tragedy," saying al-Shabab should be "directing their arrows at the enemies of the group," according to a report issued Saturday by SITE Intel Group, an American private company that analyzes terror threats.
"Here they are today being killed in cold blood at the hands of those who belong to jihad ... and the world is watching," the tribute said, according to SITE Intel Group.
"One wonders who will be next," the eulogy said. "And more importantly, who will be responsible for the blood of those brothers?"
Death to Shabaaab!
I always wanted to say that ;-)
