Finally a Fatwa I Fancy

Via One News:
One of France's largest Islamic groups issued a fatwa against rioting after officials suggested Muslim militants could be partly to blame for violent protests scarring poor neighbourhoods around the country.

The Union of French Islamic Organisations (UOIF) quoted the Koran and the Prophet Mohammad to back up the religious edict condemning the disorder and destruction the unrest caused.
More evidence that revealed religion and its interpretation by "clerics" can be used to support or discredit almost anything -- maybe even in the same breathe -- however noble or contemptuous.

Thank goodness it was used tonight to stop a situation clearly out of control.
