  • Egypt: Sunni scholars sanction 'electronic Jihad'
     OP - October 16, 2008, 04:20 PM

    Cairo, 16 Oct. (AKI) - Attacking American and Israeli websites by hacking and sabotage is allowed under Islamic law and is a form of 'Jihad' or holy war, top Muslim scholars have decreed.

    The religious edict (fatwa) issued by a committee from the highest authority in Sunni Islam, Egypt's Al-Azhar University in Cairo, was published on the website of the Islamist Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood movement on Thursday.

    "This is considered a type of lawful Jihad that helps Islam by paralysing the information systems used by our enemies for their evil aims," said the fatwa.

    "This Jihad is not different from the armed one. In fact, it might be more important if you consider the global dimensions of the Internet.

    "Whoever wins this war will become the strongest in the realm of information," the fatwa continued.

    The Muslim Brotherhood praised the fatwa, which comes in response to dozens of questions from radicals asking to be allowed to destroy Israeli and United States websites.

    Last week, the news website of Dubai-based Arabic TV network al-Arabiya was attacked by suspected Shia hackers, who posted a burning Israeli flag to the site.

    Beneath the flag, a message in Arabic and English read: 'Serious Warning - if attacks on Shia websites continue, none of your websites will be safe.'

    E-jihad, Eh. Totally brilliant. Bill Gates Jnr. may well get his next big idea for his next billion without even trying.

    Religion is ignorance giftwrapped in lyricism.

    Well I suppose it makes a nice change from blowing up civilians in marketplaces. Typical of the jihadis to want to shut people up by closing sites instead of trying to debate their points of view in a fairly free setting. One thing they can;t handle is opponents who think for themeselves.

    As for al-Azhar, given the crap that comes out of that place on a regular basis I'm amazed that anyone is daft enough to take it at all seriously.

    Devious, treacherous, murderous, neanderthal, sub-human of the West. bunny
