“The bottom line regarding democracies is that the right to make laws is given to someone other than Allah Most High. Such, then, is democracy. So whoever is agreed to this is an infidel—for he has taken gods in place of Allah. Legislation is an exclusive right of the Most High. Whoever legislates anything for  mankind erects himself up as a god among them. Whoever permits him to do this takes him for a god.”Raymond Ibrahim, trans., The Al-Qaeda Reader (New York: Doubleday, 2007), 133-134.
