The Democracy is Haram Fatwa

Issued against, you know, the Kuffar.

A well-known Saudi Islamic scholar has issued a new fatwa (edict) saying holding elections for a president or another form of leadership is prohibited in Islam.

Sheikh Abdul Rahman bin Nassir Al Barrak, reputed for his radical views, described western-style elections as an alien phenomenon to Islamic countries.

“Electing a president or another form of leadership or council members is prohibited in Islam as it has been introduced by the enemies of Moslems,” he wrote on his Twitter page, according to Saudi newspapers.

“Selecting an Imam (leader) must be up to the decision-making people not the public…election is a corrupt system which is not based on any legal or logical concept for those who enforce this system by some Moslems…this system has been brought by the anti-Islam parties who have occupied Moslem land.”

Any questions?

2 “Selecting an Imam (leader) must be up to the decision-making people not the public...." And these decision making people are who? More illiterate Imams or the Despots that usually take over such shitholes.

3 The chief priests, scribes and elders of the Islamci world.

Kind of Hypocritical for those who claim Isa was a Prophet, no?

4 "Selecting an Imam (leader) must be up to the decision-making people not the public" ya right. Thats how the catholics get their popes into power. This includes the 12 and 13 year old ones of the dark ages.....Their families had the money to buy the position. Sorry 'shake ole boy. But elections are the only non-corrupt ways to put someone into office out there.

5 @# 4: Want to read an interesting book about Pope Alexander, aka the father of Lucretia Borgia. It's called The Family by Mario Puzo, the author of the Godfather. The shenanigans in the Catholic Church at that time by the Popes and other church figures is unbelieveable.

6 One question. If electing a leader is prohibited since the concept was introduced by enemies of Moslems, how does your Twitter account fit in?

7 I more or less liked George W. Bush, but there were two main dumbass things he did.
1. He called mohamadism a religion of peace.
2. He thought they could somehow make use of 'democracy'.
