This has got to take the cake for sheer chutzpa! And meanwhile CAIR tells US Muslims that they should NOT cooperate with law enforcement AT ALL.
“American Muslims are banned from helping U.S. soldiers deployed in Afghanistan, Iraq and other "Muslim lands," according to a shocking fatwa, or religious decree, recently issued by American-based Islamic jurists.
One of the most respected Islamic law authorities in America has decreed it is "not permissible" for even Muslims who are citizens of America to send food or other aid to American troops serving in those Muslim countries.
The Assembly of Muslim Jurists of America, or AMJA, ruled it is a "sin" to help the U.S. military in its multi-front war on terror. AMJA delivered the ruling through its online "fatwa bank":
"Q: Is it permissible to participate in taking food to the American and foreign soldiers working in Muslim lands?"
"A: That would not be permissible, for that would be helping others in sin and transgression."
Critics warn that such anti-military views by Muslim scholars have translated into homegrown violence against American soldiers.
Another American cleric, Anwar Awlaki, has decreed that the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are crimes against Muslims and has warned fellow Muslim Americans not to serve in the U.S. military or support U.S. military efforts in any way. Recently, he has issued fatwas declaring U.S. troops and military bases open target for jihad.
The Fort Dix Six terrorists cited Awlaki’s sermons as a prime motivating factor in their plot to attack Army personnel based at the New Jersey post.
"He gave the fatwa," Muslim terrorist Dritan Duka of New Jersey said of Awlaki. "Hit them (American soldiers) here" in the U.S.
In a series of e-mail exchanges, Awlaki personally counseled Army Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, the accused Fort Hood terrorist, who railed against the Iraq and Afghanistan wars during a PowerPoint presentation to Army colleagues. He also praised a deadly 2009 attack on an Army recruiting station in Arkansas by a Muslim American.
Hasan in late 2008 and early 2009 had asked Awlaki "about killing American soldiers and officers and whether that was legitimate or not."
In response, Awlaki gave his blessing to such attacks. “
