My assistant just spoke to an important and moderate sunni cleric, mullah Mustafa Malas, of the Menyah mosque north of Tripoli (Lebanon). He send her this part of the speech he will give today during Friday prayer:
"Criticisms and provocations, of known objectives and intentions, against Islam won’t be able to distort the image of the religion. These attacks are a result of ignorance and lack of awareness and are carried out by those seeking to attract attention and popularity in order to achieve financial and political gains.
Our reaction to the recent offense by the radical Dutch politician, Geert Wilders should be in further holding to the sunnah (path) of the prophet, commitment to Islam’s provisions and manners and behavior that pleases God, and in staying away from insults and foul language used by the provokers themselves."
