Have another laugh

When the laughter at Palin's expense will have died down, especially after her acceptable performance in last night's vp debate, there's always the muslim clerics to turn to for your dose of ridicule. The last few weeks especially a good harvest of bad judgment on the part of muslim scholars has reached us from all over.

In Morocco, there was the recent fatwa declaring 9-year old girls as ready for marriage; then there was the Saudi license to kill all mice and Mickey Mouse in particular; next, and again in Saudi Arabia, a leading scholar issued a virtual death sentence on owners of television networks broadcasting "depravation and debauchery" (while in fact commenting on the wildly popular Turkish tv soap 'Noor', featuring a successful female fashion designer and her supportive husband); and now from Pakistan, comes this slice of baloney :

Pakistan President gets fatwa for 'flirting' with Sarah Palin
By Natasha Mozgovaya, Haaretz U.S. correspondent

Muslim leaders in Pakistan have issued a fatwa against the country's new president for allegedly flirting with U.S. Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin at the United Nations General Assembly in New York last week.

A radical prayer leader in Pakistan said Asif Ali Zardari shamed the nation for "indecent gestures, filthy remarks, and repeated praise of a non-Muslim lady wearing a short skirt."

At the meeting between the pair, Zardari smiled, shook Palin's hand and engaged in a conversation with her. After meeting the vice presidential candidate, Zardari said he was very impressed by her.
