Good point Josh!

Dubai knows how to handle their Mullahs, and Americans should learn from rulers of this little city state.

Sure there are some limitations on the personal freedoms in these tiny regions. Examples are Singapore, and Dubai. However that tiny limitation allows businesses to flourish while keeping Mullahs in check. That check on Mullahs in extremely important to allow business community to become strong and mature. Otherwise an unfettered reign by Mullahs can easily turn Dubai into Somalia.

Don't take me wrong. Being a Muslim I appreciate the important role played by the Mullahs, or priests, or Rabbis. Mullahs have all the street power today because we as global citizens ended up giving tremendous power to Mullahs as they were our front line soldiers against Soviet Union. However some of these soldiers have now turned malignant so they must be kept in check.

It is time to file charges against Muslim society of Minnesota for upsetting public order, hindering freedom, and religion-free business process. This is the only way to end the frivolous fatwas (religious edicts) in this country.
