King Barack Obozo’s Arab Spring has sprung !!!
Once again, proving that secular dictators are the least worst option for muslim countries. Those people have shown over and over again they have to be ruled harshly. The key for us is who’s doing the ruling.
What on earth is a “shariah?”
“What on earth is a shariah?”
Should Have Asked Retribution In A Hurry
No. Its not Bush’s fault - its Obama’s Fault.
Its Bush’s Fault the Saudis and Afghans use Sharia Law in THEIR Constitutions to target Christians and other non-Muslims.
