Muslim Cleric Issues Fatwa Against All-You-Can-Eat Buffets

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A Saudi cleric named Saleh al-Fawzan has issued fatwa against all-you-can-eat buffets in Saudi Arabia. He made the statement on a Saudi Quranic TV station.

Fawzan said the value and quantity of the food sold should be pre-determined beforehand.

`Whoever enters the buffet and eats for 10 or 50 riyals without deciding the quantity they will eat is violating Sharia (Islamic) law,` Fawzan was quoted on al-Atheer channel."

How do you parody or mock a religion that issues a fatwa against all-you-can-eat buffets? Not to put too fine a point on it, put Islam is a joke.

Unfortunately, the Muslim faith isn`t a joke that we can afford to ignore, Muslim clerics also have a penchant for issues fatwas calling for the death of infidels and pigs. If you`re a Jew, Christian or a member of any religion other than Islam, this means you.

It`s not gluttony that this wise Saudi cleric is condemning, his panties are in a twist because he believes the value and quantity of the food sold should be pre-determined beforehand.

I can`t think of anything more unappetizing that the slop they serve at a Saudi buffet. I`ve criticized Arab cuisine and Islam  -- no 72 virgins for me when I die. Damn, I`d be satisfied with one slightly skanky girl I could kick it with in heaven.
