P.A. says no to hater imams

by The Rhetor

The Washington Post reports on the Palestinian Authority’s clamp down on sermons in West Bank mosques. The Authority’s Minister for Religious Affairs Mahmoud Habbash closely monitors and provides guidance on the content of the sermons given by the imams under the Authority’s jurisdiction. The Fattah regime can only be seen by those under its control as a Vichy government and the West must be cautious in its dealings with this group of strong-men.

In order to secure peace in the Levant  Western  governments must avoid politically convenient solutions involving armed political factions and seek to establish functioning democracies that maintain a separation of church and state, promote individual freedoms and political pluralism.
