Good advice, I'd say. Too bad anyone on our side fighting for freedom by focusing on hearts and minds are called "haters," "bigots" and "islamophobes."
How long before condemning 9/11 (and the countless acts of jihadi war -- 3/11 (Madrid), 7/7 (London), 11/26 (Mumbai), 10/12 (Bali) etc) isn't considered islamophobia?
Abu Muhammad Al-Maqdisi
On April 10, 2013, the Minbar Al-Tawhid Wal-Jihad (MTJ) website posted a letter by leading cleric Abu Muhammad Al-Maqdisi to his followers titled "Precious Advice for the Supporters of the Lofty Shari'a" (al-wasaya al-ghaliyya li-ansar al-shari'a al-'aliyya).
The letter, containing advice for the Salafi-jihadi groups and their supporters in the post-Arab Spring era, is a follow-up to a previous letter posted by Al-Maqdisi on the same website several days earlier. The two letters are very similar in their topics, themes and content, and some passages are even identical. However, the second letter is more explicit in detailing certain developments and trends and in naming specific groups. For instance, it contains Al-Maqdisi's first explicit mention of the Ansar Al-Shari'a groups and of Jabhat Al-Nusra in Syria (which now publicly acknowledged its allegiance to Al-Qaeda).
