Reversing Fatwas – Out of Fear

Ousted extremists are changing their language. Omar Bakri fled to Lebanon where he says he is adhering to tolerance and non-violence. Sheik Abu-Basir Al-Tartusi is now refuting suicide attacks. It’s a fake game, they know that if they are deported to their countries of origin, they’ll be executed or imprisoned. Would that not be a fair price to pay for someone who has been calling for martyrs in a holy war?

Edit: Bakri fears interrogation; refuses to define who the innocents who shouldn't be killed are - see interview here.
