Radical Islam

Here it is.
The radical Ansar al-Sunnah Army and two other insurgent groups issued a statement today warning that democracy was un-Islamic. Democracy could lead to passing un-Islamic laws, such as permitting homosexual marriage, if the majority or people agreed to it, the statement said.

"Democracy is a Greek word meaning the rule of the people, which means that the people do what they see fit," the statement said. "This concept is considered apostasy and defies the belief in one God — Muslims' doctrine."

They then threaten to kill anyone who participates in the Iraqi elections. Now I'm not expert on Islam, but that seems a wee bit un-Islamic to me.

Oh, and you have got to love the reference to gay marriage.
