Thanks to David Bloom of the World War IV report blog for bringing this fatwah to my attention. Apparently Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has said that "neither throwing Jews into the sea nor setting the Palestinian territory on fire is in accordance with our Islamic principles." I have now noticed a little piece in the Independent on this but not on line. Funny how it doesn't get the same prominence as was given to the premature cartography of the Iranian President, Mahmud Ahmadinezhad.
