The Saudi scholar Muhammad Abu Omar al-Seif confirms the incompatibility of Islam with democracy. From the SITE Institute:
[S]overeignty is reserved for Allah alone, replacing shari”a with democratic elections is considered “an appeal to the devil and destruction of Allah’s rule,” democracy considers all people equal, “knowledgeable and the ignorant and Muslim and “infidel” alike, which is deemed anathema. Further, according to the speech, jihad is the solution, justified in its course because it means to defend Islam, “which the enemies are aiming to remove from the hearts of the Muslims and from their lives.”
Mr. al-Seif issued this statement on September 26th of 2005 and allegations of his affiliation with “al-Qaeda leadership in Chechnya” are well known.
What isn’t common knowledge is this November, 2003 Jihad Watch posting which was prophetic in its confirmation that Saudia Arabia doesn’t deserve the certification which President Bush so generously granted.
Further proof shows that Saudi Arabia is still the same country she was prior to 9/11.
