Fatwa issued against Libyans watching Al Jazeera

Cleric issues fatwa against Libyans watching television channels “like Al Jazeera

Text messages sent to residents of Tripoli in the past 30 minutes by Libyana, the country’s leading cellphone provider, advised them that a local cleric issued a fatwa against watching television channels “like Al Jazeera,” that incite bloodshed, three Libyan bloggers report on Twitter.

Earlier on Thursday, Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi said in a rambling phone call to Libyan state television: “Those people who took your sons away from you and gave them drugs and said let them die are launching a campaign over cellphones against your sons, telling them not to obey their fathers and mothers, and they are destroying their country.”
