Hasn't something like this been tried before several times? I vaguely recall reading about similar sentiments from various Arab islamic scholars, I think, following all the religious violence and retaliations that were spawned after the ousting of Saddam Hussein.

My question here is, are most normal and moderate muslims even aware that these fatwas are declared? How much of this manages to work it's way out among the general population?

Take the example with some yet-to-be-radicalized muslim guy out there, who is sitting on the fence and is trying to find out which way to go. Does he know a fatwa like this has been declared? And if he does, will it have any impact on which way he goes? I guess hard data on this doesn't really exist. I'm asking because, if stuff like this is actually effective, it really deserves much more attention that it gets.
