Shiite Cleric al-Sistani Forbids Iraqis From Selling Food To Americans In a sign of just how opposed some Shiite groups are to the U.S.'s presence in Iraq, one of the country's most powerful Shiite clerics, Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani, has issued a fatwa forbidding Iraqis from selling food to Americans. A correspondent in Najaf reports that an Iraqi Shiite submitted the following to Sistani: "I sell foodstuffs. Sometimes the Occupying Powers or their associates come to my establishment. May I sell them foodstuffs?" Grand Ayatollah Ali Sistani replied: "Selling foodstuffs to the Occupying Powers is not permitted."

I'm curious how rebuilding roads and buildings that they have destroyed is "occupying"? Oh yeah, he's afraid of losing power somehow in his little corner of the world.

With our unlimited deficit spending and the weakening value of the dollar, we'll be occupied by China next year so it won't be a problem!
