Election is banned in Islam: Saudi scholar

Emirates 24/7 Published Thursday, January 17, 2013

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.”

    The article above is right in stating that Muslims are not to blame. I have maintained this for decades. The fault lies not with Islam or Muslims. Anyone with the slightest notions of historical record, would know that inviting Muslims to come to the West is a surefire recipe for disaster. In fact, Muslims have made it abundantly clear, by spoken and written word, and by their actions, what their intent is.

    It is our idiot socialist/marxist/proggresivist utopia seeking rulers who are leading us to the killing fields like lambs to the slaughter.
