abstract
This master's thesis is a rhetorical analysis of eight fatwas issued by the Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia, intended to legitimate the actions taken by the Saudi Government in regards to the first Persian Gulf War. Using Burke's redemptive cycle of rhetoric, this thesis analyzes the rhetorical constructions of Order, the Secret, and the Kill within the fatwas.
