Egypt: New Fatwa Bans Muslim Taxi And Bus Drivers From Transporting Christian Leaders To Churches


By Raymond Ibrahim – “Dr. Yassir al-Burhami, a prominent figure in Egypt’s Salafi movement and vice president of the Salafi Call—the same sheikh who seeks to punish Muslim apostates, condemns Mother’s Day, and advocates deceiving Israel—has just issued a fatwa, published in the ‘Voice of the Righteous Salaf,’ forbidding Muslim taxi-drivers and bus-drivers from transporting Coptic priests to their churches, which he depicted as ‘more forbidden than taking someone to a liquor bar.’

This analogy, of course, does not begin with Sheikh Burhami, but traces back to some of Islam’s early giants, including Ibn Taymiyya and Ibn Qayyim, who agreed that ‘building churches is worse than building bars and brothels, for those [churches] symbolize infidelity, whereas these [bars and brothels] represent immorality.

The logic is simple: It is better to profess Islam and sin, than to profess Christianity and not sin—for the latter denies the veracity of Islam, and hence is much more abominable. In this context, the Muslim who transports a priest to his church where he will preach Christianity—a message that contradicts Islam—is a terrible crime.” Source – Jihad Watch.

Flashback: Egyptian Clerics Issue First ‘Fatwa’ Since Brotherhood Takeover: Thou Shalt Not Kill Frogs – “Killing frogs in Egypt is plainly forbidden. But killing Jews and Christians in Egypt? That’s perfectly fine … ‘it bans Muslims from hunting and killing frogs to sell to those nations that dine on the amphibians. As the fatwa explains, according to Islam’s prophet Muhammad as recorded in a hadith, a frog’s ‘croaking is praise [to Allah].’ Accordingly, ‘a number of jurists [fuqaha] have relied on this [hadith] to forbid the eating of frogs, under the notion that ‘that which is banned from being killed, is forbidden from being eaten.’'” Read more.

Flashback: Egypt: Islamist Group Forbids Eating Tomatoes Because They Are ‘Christian’ – “‘Allah’ — the alleged creator of all things in Islam — creating food with crosses, not to mention ‘Zionist’ snowflakes? Oh, the humanity! I wonder how they feel about the fact that the universe itself exists as a ‘Trinity’ of time, space and matter, which are themselves comprised of past-present-future, length-width-depth, and solid-liquid-gas? Will they begin forbidding any discussion about the nature of the universe due to the fact that it was created as ‘Trinities within a Trinity’?” Read more.

Flashback: Egyptian Sheikh: Chevrolet’s Logo Resembles Christian Cross, Issues Fatwa Forbidding Muslims from Buying or Driving Chevys – “If the ‘Cross of Chevrolet’ had anything to do with Christianity, then General Motors wouldn’t have needed to be saved by the Federal Government. After all, the Cross is the only thing that can bail us out. No word yet on whether or not a fatwa will be issued against Mercedes-Benz for being pro-Trinitarian. In the meantime, maybe the Sheikh will recommend a Lamborghini for all Muslims. He obviously has no problem with that logo …” Read more.
