Laughing At US and Not With US

I just read a BBC World News Headline entitled "Obama Orders Afghan Troop Surge."

Firstly, our pseudo-Muslim President sure does seem to be doing a slow job ending wars...

But more ironically, I cannot help but visualize people in such diverse places as Russia and Vietnam falling off their seats with laughter.

Barack, my man, you should watch the movie The Princess Bride (unless you actually are a Muslim, in which case, watching movies is HARAM), and specifically the part where it is so wisely mentioned that the most well known of the classic blunders is to oppose the maxim, "Never start a land war in Asia..."

If you think watching movies is haram (and FYI where'd you hear that?) then how do you that quote from the film you mentioned?

Gharib! said...

Cina. You must forgive my humor and sarcasm, which is not always readily apparent to all. If you want a fatwa on haram and halal, I suggest you contact a qualified mufti.

Anyways, if someone thinks something is haram, that has nothing to do with whether or not they have done it before or not...

To try to apply pure rationality to human beings is utterly irrational...
