Jihadist urges Muslim soldiers to cannibalism
By Steven Edwards, Canwest News Service | June 27, 2009
Muslim fighters are being told they may be justified in cannibalizing U.S. soldiers, it emerged Friday.
The chilling message is contained in a recent jihadist Internet entry that quotes from the work of a prominent jihadist ideologue, Abu Muhammad al-Maqdisi.
In one section of his work, Maqdisi discusses the idea of having to do something that is otherwise forbidden, including eating food "sacrificed for an idol," according to the Washington-based SITE Intelligence Group, which translates jihadist "chat" sites. Maqdisi adds some scholars believe this has evolved to mean that Muslims, faced with hunger, are allowed to kill an enemy and "cannibalize him."
