Gaza Imam: Breaking Ceasefire Would Be A Sin

By: JTA

A Muslim imam in Gaza has issued a religious edict, or fatwa, that says it is a sin to violate the cease-fire between Israel and Hamas in Gaza.

Suleiman al-Daya issued the fatwa on Saturday night, according to Haaretz, after a top Hamas official said the terrorist organization would continue to stockpile arms although it was prohibited under the agreement brokered last week by Egypt.

“Honoring the truce, which was sponsored by our Egyptian brethren, is the duty of each and every one of us,” al-Daya said in his edict. “Violating it shall constitute a sin.”

    They’ll kill him.

  2. Tim Upham says:

    This goes to show that Muslim clerics can be used an allies. This one in Gaza is calling for peace. The imams from France went to Israel, and paid tribute at Yad Vashem. I have numerous times been in ecumenical dialogue with Muslim clerics, and the ones calling for peace and coexistence are out there. Us and the press just have to make sure they are ferreted out, so everybody knows that they exist.

  3. Milton Trachtenburg says:

    One man saw the reality of what Israel can do to their country. It isn’t about love for his neighbor, it is about fear.

  4. Chaiya Eitan says:

    I hope he stays safe….
