Saudi cleric calls for targeting Israelis all over the world

December 28, 2008 23:07

A Saudi Web site reported on Sunday that a popular cleric issued a fatwa urging Muslims to target Israeli interests "everywhere," to avenge the attacks on the Gaza strip. The site, Rasid, posts news about Saudi Arabia's Shiite community and said that Sheik Awadh al-Garni issued a religious edict urging Muslims to target "interests and anything that has a link to Israel," calling it "a legitimate target for Muslims everywhere." Al-Garni, whose is popular in the kingdom, is not a member of the official religious establishment. Fatwas are not legally binding, and it is up to the individual Muslim to follow them.
