Global Jihad Monitor: 3-16-05

The latest weekly War on Terror roundup from the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies is now available. This week's highlights include:

-In the largest pro-democracy protest in the history of the modern Middle East, an estimated million or more supporters of Lebanese independence gathered in Beirut in response to recent pro-Syrian demonstrations organized by the terrorist group Hezbollah.

-The Islamic Commission of Spain issued a fatwa against Osama bin Laden. Quoting from Islamic texts, the fatwa said that terrorism is never justified under Islam, and that by engaging in terrorism, Osama bin Laden and members of al-Qaeda are apostates and should no longer be considered Muslims.

-The European Union parliament, in a non-binding resolution, branded Hezbollah a terrorist organization and encouraged member states to do the same. The EU has not placed Hezbollah on its list of outlawed terrorist organizations, which would obligate member state to seize its assets and take action against its members.
