Ayatollah Ali Al-Sistani, the Iraqi cleric who was shut up by Saddam Hussein, is now free to express his opinions and oppose the wills of the Iraqi people, thanks to the American-led liberation of Iraq.
On his website, his rules of marriage is similar to the Iranian Mullah's rule...Read what he says :
In a fixed time marriage (Mut'ah), the period of matrimony is fixed, for example, matrimonial relation is contracted with a woman for an hour, or a day, or a month, or a year, or more. However, the period fixed for the marriage should not exceed the span of normal lives of the spouses, because in that case, the marriage will be treated as a permanent one. This sort of fixed time marriage is called Mut'ah or Sigha.
Mut'ah in Arabic means "enjoyment"...so this is a legal call for protistution. If not, how can two people get married for an hour ? what kinda marriage is that ?
This is an insult to every women in that country, and a big positive advantage to men like Al-Sistani.
Recently, Dr. Barham Saleh, the Prime Minister of the Kurdistan Regional Government said "
"Al-Sistani has become chairman of the Governing Council," . "He's the unelected authority."
His demand for a direct elections means that those Arab settlers who were forced by Saddam Hussein to live in Kirkuk will stay in their places, while the Kirkuki Kurds who were forced out to live in tents continue live in tents despite their liberation from Saddam Hussein.
It is true that elections are the bases of democracy, but elections in un-settled country like Iraq needs some time. First Sistani needs to get rid of his Iranian passport before asking for direct elections.
