Muslim Clerics Launch ‘Green Jihad’ On Climate Change

Excerpt: Imam Ibrahim Saidy brought his symposiums and his monthly fasting to the Paris climate talks, hoping to call attention to the problems and injustice of global warming.

He calls it “green jihad.”

The Muslim cleric from Norway came up with the idea of an environmental holy movement a year ago. He uses the word jihad in its meaning of a struggle to do good, as opposed to extremists’ use of it to signify a holy war.

“The green jihad is to protect and save lives,” Saidy told The Associated Press on Tuesday. “To make people aware of the dangers of climate change and fight for climate justice.”

Saidy is part of a growing interfaith religious movement seeking action by governments to fight global warming. For the past two years, about 10,000 religious activists have been fasting on the first day of the month to call attention to global warming, according to Caroline Bader of the Lutheran World Federation.

    As a protest, maybe they could start drinking camel dung tea and eating camel dung bread. Would probably improve their breath…among other things.

    Imam Ibrahim Saidy smells easy money from weak Europeans who feel guilty over their Western cultural achievements but who now feel a need to pay penance for their sins (cultural success).

    Look at this Imam … does he look like a man concerned about the climate? In Islam, climate change is Allah’s domain, and this Imam insults Allah and is at odds with what more important Imams have already had to say on the matter… “in shaa Allah”!

    Is the good Imam concerned about the carbon emitted into the atmosphere when Jordanian pilots and various other infidels are burned alive by his fellow true believers over at ISIS?
