      Palestinian Mufti Forbids Moslems To Join Anti-Terror Coalition

      MEMRI - The Middle East Media Research Institute - reports that the PA
      Mufti in Jerusalem has called upon Muslims not to join the American
      anti-terrorism coalition. This past Friday, Sept. 28, 2001, the PA's Mufti,
      Sheikh Ikrimah Sabri, encouraged the worshippers in the Al-Aqsa Mosque on
      the Temple Mount to oppose the coalition. Following are excerpts from the
      sermon:
      "...our Prophet says in a long tradition (Hadiph): 'It is forbidden for a
      Muslim to go against another Muslim, against his life, his properties, and

      Muslim would kill another Muslim; this killing is regarded as a severe sin.
      There are tens of verses, and hundreds of traditions that forbid it. It is
      far more sinful for a Muslim to ask for the help of a non-Muslim to kill
      another Muslim. This is a grave heresy...
      "Oh Muslims, brothers in faith everywhere, from the pulpit of the blessed
      Al-Aqsa Mosque we call upon America, the superpowers and the states that
      aligned in a military pact, we tell all of them: 'No to war, because it
      brings hardships on all mankind.' [We say] no to the killing of innocents,
      no to the killing of elderly women and children, no to [being under your]
      guardianship. 'No to [your] intervention in other peoples' issues..."
