Like in Saudiland. Corrupt royalty which draw the nation's wealth right out of the ground (via devices designed, developed and deployed by daemonic foreign women worshippers) royal cats owe their people nothing. No services or benefits.
Thanks to divine right Kings and nearly 5K Princes enjoy the plundering of natural resources while their own people suffer under the weight of unfree, unfun and nigh unhinged mohammedist rule.
Thanks to really cool tech (created by Great Satan - natch!) inmates or citizens of Saudiland can cable up nearly anything on TV to satiate desires subtle and gross.
Baywatch, American Idol - tons of classic and au currant satellite TV stuff (probably a few laffy taffy channels too) make their way straight into the living rooms (and , uh, bedrooms?) of Saudilanders.
And that's a prob. How can the religious police and their cleric commanders keep young people on the path to whatever, when they can go home, tune in and soak up wicked Western ways via Viacom.
Easy! Issue a fatwah.
Fatwahs are awesome - whenever one is issued, fatwah fans can go on a bloody rampage, killing, looting, jihad, raising pure heck - as long as the fatwah is appealing binding.Like in Saudiland. Wicked TV stuff (broadcast from Gulf States) is a matter of concern for the Ministry of Virtue and Vice Prevention.
"A fatwa is issued by a recognized religious authority in Islam. But
since there is no hierarchical priesthood or anything of the sort in Islam, a fatwa is not necessarily "binding" on the faithful.
The people who pronounce these rulings are supposed to be
knowledgable, and base their rulings in knowledge and wisdom. They need to supply the evidence from Islamic sources for their opinions, and it is not uncommon for scholars to come to different conclusions regarding the same issue."
Saudi State Media (alas, there is no other type in Saudiland) has a really interesting show on shortwave radio called "Light in the Path".
Featuring Saudi Arabia's Chief Witchfinder General Judge - Sheik Saleh al-Lihedan.
A while back, this ancient hysteric cleric called for a fatwa against Great Satan in Iraq. Essentially Surge bait - suckering in hundreds of silly Saudi jihadis that were routinely incarcerated, incinerated or simply shot to pieces and left on the side of the road for a stranger to bury.
Listeners can call in and ask questions and a certain call really kicked things up a notch RE: Fatwa fallacy.
Asking about unmohammedist TV shows during Ramadan, Preacher Command nearly blew a fuse!
"I want to advise the owners of these channels, who broadcast calls
for such indecency and impudence and I warn them of the consequences. What does the owner of these networks think, when he provides seduction, obscenity and vulgarity?
Those calling for corrupt beliefs, certainly it's permissible to
kill them. Those calling for sedition, those who are able to prevent it but
don't, it is permissible to kill them.”
Whoa! Hold up! Obviously the 80 yo preacher judge guy - had no clue that State Media in Saudiland is owned by the Royal family! Kill the king?!
Faster than one could say "Don't touch that dial - We'll be right back" Royal family deployed a cadre of clerics that disputed the Preacher Judge in chief's fatwa.
And the most convincing weapon they used could eventually be turned against a ton of Saudiland's control mechanisms like the secret police, the religious police, the fashion posse and the unfun brigades.
Freedom of choice.
Counter cleric Sheik Hazim Awad in liberated and starting to function democratic Iraq, points out such a threatwah is suspect, retarded and ultimately flawed.
‘Our religion prevents Muslims from watching films that provide
seduction, obscenity and vulgarity - the real Muslim can just cancel these channels’
This is significant.
The burden for discouraging this questionable unmohammedist eye candy and witchcraft (which is a very nice way of nom de guerring Baby Jesus, Xianity and concepts like 'who so ever will'), is not on the State or the mosque - but individual will!
Those remotes can change channels and turn off TV's.
Free choice as a raison d etre could easily be applied to any control mechs, techs, fatwahs, preachers, militias - even corrupt, kleptocratic, autocratic despotic tyranny monarchies.
The regional reach of the most likely soon to be retired Witchfingerer General Shiek is interesting. Counter clerical cussing from Iraq, Jordan, Palestine and the Gulf States reveal that alien concepts from the wild wacky wicked West - like free choice, fun and prepping for this life instead of racing to the next are taking hold.
Great Satan brought more to the ME than ballots, M 16's and Surge.
