On August 28, 2007, Dr. Hamza Dhib Mustafa, member of the Palestinian Authority Supreme Fatwa Council, appointed last year by a so-called "moderate" PA president Mahmoud Abbas, stated the following:
"Muslims are masters of the world, its leaders and teachers, even if the West rejects this."
Muslims Against Sharia condemn, in the strongest possible terms, Dr. Mustafa's statement and demand his immediate excommunication and removal from the PA Supreme Fatwa Council. As a figure of religious authority, Dr. Mustafa has a responsibility to strive for World Peace and not to call for worldwide domination of Islam. We hold PA president Mahmoud Abbas responsible for his appointee and demand a public apology and repudiation of Dr. Mustafa's statement. We call on all democratic governments, including the governments of Israel and the United States to halt any aid to Palestinian Authority until president Abbas rectifies the situations for which he is personally responsible.
