No non-Muslim President in Egypt, say Salafists

Funny, almost all non-Muslim countries have no religious requirement to be the leader, yet in Islam, only a Muslim can be a leader.

Sharia law says;
"A caliph must be a Muslim, a non-slave, a male, of the Quraysh tribe." (o25.0)

Here in America we have had a myriad of different beliefs in our leaders, we make no distinction in who is qualified to run the country.  The patriarchal society that is Islam keeps to the dictum that only men are capable of running a society.  The feminists should be running to explain to Islamic leaders how this is just all wrong, and that everyone is equal.

Egypt’s al-Nour Salafists say no to Coptic president

Calls for hate from the religion of peace
CAIRO: Egypt’s al-Nour ultra-conservative political party announced that a Coptic Christian cannot become president of Egypt and that Egyptian society “will not accept a Christian president.”
The puritan party’s spokesman wrote a statement published on the party’s website aiming to clear the controversy after Egypt’s al-Akhbar state-run newspaper published an interview with spokesman Mohamed Nour on December 31 in which he said that “the Egyptian society is not fit to accept a Coptic president.”
Wait, the Egyptian society is not fit to accept a Coptic president?  So when will they be fit enough?
The spokesman said that after going back to the leaders in the party it was agreed on that Egypt “will not accept a Christian president.”
The Islamic political party was founded after the Egyptian uprising of January 2011 and has come in second place in the country’s first parliamentary elections following the revolution.
“We see that the interpretation of the second band in the Egyptian Constitution which states Islam as the ‘official religion’ of the country, which automatically states that the president be a Muslim,” read the statement.
“The party will make sure that the next Constitution directly states that,” the party’s website said.
And so the last vapors of democracy go up with the breeze.
