A very British fatwa?

A number of British imams have issued a "fatwa" against ISIS which has attracted some attention in the media on the Internet and of course the inevitable twitter. How much effect this will have is unknown at this stage, especially as it occurs to me that with all the different stands of Islam, Muslims will inevitably pick and choose those that suit their own outlooks and/or needs.

However lets at least give it a chance and see if this appeal has some effect on the growing number of young British Muslims attracted to the appalling depravity of the death cult known as ISIS and others of their ilk.

Of course from a non-Muslim perspective this "fatwa" does seem somewhat lacking, but everything has to start somewhere.
