  • Seyyed Hossein Nasr - is a well-known and highly respected intellectual figure both in the West and the Islamic world. An eloquent speaker with a charismatic presence, Nasr is a much sought-after speaker at academic conferences and seminars, university and public lectures, and also radio and television programs in his areas of expertise.

  • King Abdullah II - Six years after inheriting the throne, Jordan's King Abdullah II has picked up his father's mantle as a leading voice of moderate Islam, calling for the "quiet majority" of Muslims to "take back our religion from the vocal, violent and ignorant extremists,".
  • Daniel Pipes - "I am not a spokesperson of religion," the founder and director of the Philadelphia-based Middle East Forum said last week at the two-day International Prayer for Peace conference at Georgetown University. "But I am a scholar of Islam and I have an optimistic message to bring about pluralism and religion. ... There is, of course, the poor treatment of non-Muslims in Muslim countries around the world, [but] I disagree with the notion that Islam and pluralism might not be compatible."

Good find .  It looks like others have issued fatwa similar to mine ...
source: Rachel Zoll AP Religion Writer

 After the London subway bombings, the Fiqh Council of North America, which advises Muslims on Islamic law, issued a fatwa _ or edict _ declaring that nothing in Islam justifies terrorism. The council said Muslims were obligated to help law enforcement protect civilians from attacks.

"I think everyone now agrees that silence isn't an option," Hooper said. "You have to speak out in defense of civil liberties, but you also have to speak out against any kind of extremism or violence that's carried out in the name of Islam."
