Separate But Lethal: Leading Saudi Cleric Calls For The Killing of People Who Oppose The Segregation of The Sexes

Prominent Saudi cleric Shaikh Abdul-Rahman al-Barrak has issued a fatwa calling for “Modernisers” who object to the strict segregation of men and women in the Kingdom to be killed in the name of Islam.

Barrak, 77, told critics to abandon their ideas and that such segregation is needed under Islam to prevent “sight of what is forbidden, and forbidden talk between men and women.” He said that any man who allows his daughter, sister or wife to work with men or attend a mix-gender school is a “pimp.”

“Whoever allows this mixing … allows forbidden things, and whoever allows them is an infidel and this means defection from Islam … Either he retracts or he must be killed … because he disavows and does not observe the Sharia,” Barrak added.

  1. FFLEO,
    Yes a Christian Theocracy is all we need here to ensure that the Book of Revelations comes true. I can see the happy faces of those reverently hopeful as the bombs rein down, only to find that the afterlife doesn’t exist.

  2. Can we all agree to hope that this bloke falls truly head over heals in love with a nice jewish girl?

  3. Mike Spindell,

    That is the principal reason we will always fail in the Middle East. We could approach a Christendom theocracy in the USA if Palin et al. dominate our politics. That would set the stage for a wide scale religious Armageddon between the Middle East and the West.

  4. I was on the verge of remarking that it’s hard to believe there are religious leaders around in the 21st century who are this ignorant, and then I remembered Pat Robertson. Sorry.

  5. Back to back with the Israeli story and we wonder why peace in the ME is so hard to achieve?

    God save us from the “true believers” of the world because they wind up getting the rest of us killed. Also God save us from people who are supposedly religiously learned who believe their gods ordain murder.

  6. I think it’s a fine idea to keep the Saudi sexes segregated.

    It’ll keep them from breeding more idiotic theocrats like Shaikh Abdul-Rahman al-Barrak .

    Oh! I forgot! He was a virgin birth and his mom liking to do the “nasty” has nothing to do with his being born. Because his mom’s a saint and all others are plain old whores. Just ask him. And Allah forbid a man have to exercise some sort of self-control over his penis.
