Death penalty for land purchase

"A senior Iraqi Shi'ite Muslim cleric has issued a decree, or fatwa, ordering the killing of any Jew who buys real estate in Iraq, an aide has said."

"...A cleric at Haieri's representative office in the holy city of Najaf said several Iraqis had sought Haieri's religious decree after Jews from abroad approached them over the past six weeks.

'''Any Jew who tries, from now on, to buy a lot of land or a house in Iraq should be killed,' the decree said. 'Selling any lot of land or a house in Iraq to Jews is forbidden.'''

Remeber this "fatwa" the next time someone attempts to make a case that there is moral equivalence between these guys and christian conservatives who are critical of islam.
