Muslim Cleric Issuing Fatwa Permitting The Use Of WMD Pledges Allegiance To The Islamic State
Qur’an Sura 8:59-60, “The infidels should not think that they can get away from us. Prepare against them whatever arms and weaponry you can muster so that you may terrorize them …”
Weapons of mass destruction. They’re halal after all. Unfortunately for the Islamic world, it doesn’t end well for them …

Zechariah 14:12, “And this shall be the plague with which the LORD will strike all the people who fought against Jerusalem: Their flesh shall dissolve while they stand on their feet, their eyes shall dissolve in their sockets, and their tongues shall dissolve in their mouths.”
By Robert Spencer, Jihad Watch – “‘I advise you to join, all of you, the Islamic State and to pledge allegiance to its leader, Amir al-Mumineen Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi – may Allah protect him – and fight under his banner. It is the state that raised the banner of Islam, and established Tawhid, and destroyed the idols, and implemented the Sharia. Allah has purified it from implementing man-made laws, from standing with the Disbelievers, and from supporting the Tawaghit, and has protected it from innovations, and misleading paths.’
How did this cleric become such a Misunderstander of Islam? Maybe John Kerry or David Cameron could jet over to Saudi Arabia and explain the true, peaceful Islam to him.
‘Saudi Cleric Who Issued Fatwa on WMD Permissibility Pledges Allegiance to ISIS,’ by Bridget Johnson, PJ Media, August 25, 2015:
A prominent Saudi cleric and ally of Osama bin Laden who issued a 2003 fatwa permitting the use of weapons of mass destruction in jihad has pledged his allegiance to the Islamic State.
Nasser bin Hamad al-Fahd is behind bars in Saudi Arabia, but his direction for squabbling Muslim factions to unite behind Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi as caliph could have significant reach — along with the fresh distribution of his fatwas on social media networks.
“I advise you to join, all of you, the Islamic State and to pledge allegiance to its leader, Amir al-Mumineen Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi – may Allah protect him – and fight under his banner,” al-Fahd wrote. “It is the state that raised the banner of Islam, and established Tawhid, and destroyed the idols, and implemented the Sharia. Allah has purified it from implementing man-made laws, from standing with the Disbelievers, and from supporting the Tawaghit, and has protected it from innovations, and misleading paths.”
He acknowledged that ISIS has made mistakes, but they should be forgiven since they’re under such pressure all the time.
“As to those who keep counting its mistakes, we say: Nobody is exempt from mistakes, and whatever the time in history, and however pure you might be. All sons of Adam make mistakes, and exemption from mistakes is only for the Prophets,” al-Fahd wrote.
“…What could we say about this blessed State? It has just emerged, still lacking capabilities, besieged, attacked from every side, arrows pointing to it from all around, its been defamed, slandered by all imaginable means, nations from all over the world agreed to fight it, and the scholars of the Tawaghit, the scholars of shame, the callers to falsehood, the mules of the sultans in every country have defamed and slandered it, and lied about it lies we have never seen in history. So how could they not make mistakes when they are in this situation?”
Some al-Nusra supporters online were claiming that the signature on the letter was forged, sparking a back-and-forth on Twitter between ISIS and al-Nusra/al-Qaeda supporters.
But needless to say, ISIS backers celebrated the news — and trumpeted his old fatwas for jihadis to catch up on.
In his 2003 WMD fatwa, al-Fahd ruled, “If the infidels can be repelled from the Muslims only by using such weapons, their use is permissible, even if you kill them without exception and destroy their tillage and stock.”
The international banning of certain types of weapons, he stressed, has no meaning under Islamic law. Under the Quran, he said, “One kills in a good manner only when one can. If those engaged in jihad cannot do so, for example when they are forced to bomb, destroy, burn, or flood, it is permissible.”…
