Another pertinent reminder that Islam does not recognize privacy, or one's personal freedom, or free will. "Fatwa Council to decide on Halal Beer", from The Star, 25 June 2011:
University laboratory, heh. Not only is your freedom taken away, but government resources are wasted on ridiculous and wasteful things like testing beer in a lab. I suppose the Malaysian government chemists and lab techs have nothing better to do. Islam wages jihad -- both peaceful and otherwise -- until it becomes the government.
KUALA LUMPUR: The National Fatwa Council is to decide on whether a beer branded as halal being sold in the country is permissible.
Principal assistant director of the dakwah division of the Islamic Development Department (Jakim), Mat Ali Sarbini, said the beer "is regarded as illicit until and unless the council rules otherwise."
He said samples of the beer were being analysed at a university laboratory.
Islam, by presenting rules ad nauseum on every conceivable aspect of life, renders all people as children, legal minors, or as permanent wards of the all-encompassing state. Or did Obama leave that part out of his Cairo "I love Islam" Speech?
