Saudi Cleric Sheik SaŽd Al-Breik Channel 1, Saudi TV January 27, 2005 Sheik SaŽd Al-Breik: [Waging Jihad is permitted] only when there is a worthy cause and it is clear as day that it wonŽt cause us any harm. But to go and blow myself up whenever I feel like waging Jihad, thus a superpower against us –a superpower that would attack us and say: "The decision in Congress was a mistake. Instead of attacking Iraq after Afghanistan, we should have attacked Saudi Arabia." All this because of the insolence of a few young men. Is this justified? No. As for Iraq, however, this is a Jihad to get rid of the occupier and to confront the enemy. We pray to Allah that He grants them victory until the last of the foreign soldiers leaves their country.
