Clash of Civilizations in Egypt, Taliban is Coming!
Egypt’s Grand Mufti (the Sheikh who is responsible for releasing all fatwas and top Islamic jurist) Ali Gomaa issued a fatwa (religious opinion/edict) few days ago that forbids Egyptian Muslims from owning or displaying statues at their home because it is un-Islamic according to a “Hadith” (Prophet’s saying). The controversial Qatar-based Islamic scholar, Yussef al-Qaradawi joined the Mufti.
The Mufti who is appointed by the President represents the official line of the country and that tells you how secular we are evolving to be, a future Taliban state.
The Fatwa does not rule out:
- The demolition of all pharaonic civilization heritages represented in the thousands of statues and Luxor and Aswan temples and others scattered all over the country. Those temples for those who did not visit them have huge statues for ancient Egyptian Kings and Queens.
- Boycotting all sculpture artists and closing down arts colleges in the country for teaching students art. I will have to boycott all my friends and family members who took art as a profession.
- Getting rid of any foreign heritage in the Egyptian houses. Many Egyptian families since more than two centuries still take pride in inheriting some pieces of art that came to Egypt from Europe. Those pieces are extremely precious and invaluable.
- Treating us as insane retarded citizens with no brains who will take the first opportunity worship statues for anything in which we can undo everything Prophet Muhammed did when he forbid the people of Mecca from worshipping statues. Egyptians do not have the desert culture, we have the civilization of the Nile valley that inspired Egyptians with all forms of beauty along the centuries of history despite all difficulties.
Today, in the 21 century, the desert culture which had never had any appreciation to art or any form of art in the first place, except for poetry, still wants to impose its traditions on us.
According to the Fatwa:
It is ok now for my parents to ask my brothers to go for a jihad trip to Luxor or Aswan to sabotage and destroy the statues of the temples because they are against Islam. As a domestic creature being a woman who is not supposed to go out with men in their jihad trip, I will help mom in taking care of all the statues at home.
I need to say the “F” word here, excuse my language. Oh and by the way, I do not think Taliban is coming and I think it is already here.
