Orange County Muslim leaders cheer bin Laden's demise

Imam Sayed Moustafa al-Qazwini, founder and director of 
the Islamic Educational Center of Orange County in Costa Mesa

Yup. So the next time you hear how the Muslims all cheered when the towers went down, remember this:
"Bin Laden was never a Muslim leader. ... The attacks on our people on Sept. 11 were the result of his twisted ideology," said Ameena Mirza Qazi, deputy director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations of Greater Los Angeles.

Muzammil Siddiqi, religious director of Islamic Society of Orange County said: "Islam is totally against terrorism, totally against violence," and bin Laden's death has "brought a sense of relief for all of us.

"We hope this chapter that began 10 years ago will close and a new chapter will begin," he added. "We want to live together in peace and harmony."
And of course, informed Monster Island readers know that there are fatwa against terrorism.
