Abdel-Rahman al-Barrak's Fatwa

via Vital Perspectives,
The Saudi cleric Sheikh Abdel-Rahman al-Barrak, regarded by many as the highest authority for Wahhabi Muslims, doesn't like Shi'ites. In a fatwa issued this week he said: "The rejectionists (Shi'ites) in their entirety are the worst of the Islamic nation's sects. They bear all the characteristics of infidels. They are in truth polytheist infidels, though they hide this."

"The Sunni and Shi'ites schools of Islam are opposites that can never agree, there can be no coming together unless Sunnis give up their principles," the fatwa said.

Barrak was among 38 clerics who issued a statement this month calling on world Sunnis to support their brethren in Iraq.

If there is a Civil War going on in Iraq, we need to be on the right side. This fellow ain't it.
