The Jihadist Diet Plan

This just in: a fatwa, or legal judgment, posted on a jihadist website encourages attacks on "companies that distribute Jewish or American products, such as McDonald's and Coca-Cola."

Well, that's one way to lose a few ugly pounds: stop eating at your local Mickey D's because, you know, it's been incinerated.

From the same report comes the sober legal opinion that jihadists can work with Muslim gangsters to achieve their ends as long as doing so doesn't "harm the reputation of the mujahideen." We wonder what it would actually take to harm the reputation of the most hated people in the world. The gangsters should worry about their reputations.

Now, we expect that there are real Islamic jurists out there who could tear holes in this stuff, revealing it (to those who may doubt) as shabby reasoning even by the standards of shariah. We wish they would get busy.
