Tartusi of Londonistan getting belligerent

Abu Baseer at-Tartusi, real name Abdul-Mun'im Mustafa Halima, recently posted a fatwa "authorizing" violence against the regime of Saudi Arabia. Well, more accurately, somebody had asked him for permission to commit such violence and Tartusi condemned the Saudi regime and left the call up to the reader. I don't want to give links here to Tartusi's websites, which carry serious malware, but you can find the fatwa on the English websites of the Shabaab franchise of al-Qa'ida.

At-Tartusi (a mock-tribal surname, after Tartus in Syria) is a terrorism-friendly Sunni pseudo-cleric, harboured and supported by the British government since he fled from the defeated Ikhwan uprising in Syria years ago. Tartusi especially admired the rampaging butcher who called himself Abu Mus'ab az-Zarqawi.

Tartusi as a rule writes only in Arabic, which is one of the reasons why his following in Londonistan is small. He does however have the endorsement of Abu Muhammad al-Maqdisi's people.
