Filling The Vacant Caliphate

If President Obama follows the Ayatullah Durrani’s advice and becomes the next Caliph, he will fill the position last held by the Ottoman Sultans for several centuries. Mustafa Kemal Ataturk abolished the Sultanate and Caliphate of the Ottoman Turks in 1924 after making Turkey a secular state following the First World War. Incidentally, Turkish men were prohibited by law from wearing a fez (their traditional headwear) after Ataturk took power. No word has been heard as of this writing whether American men will be required to wear fezes should Obama accept the Caliphate, thereby allowing them to join all Shriners in wearing that attire. Ayatullah Durrani may be spot on with his suggestion to President Obama. In addition to the titles of President and Commander-in-Chief, he (Obama) would also be known as Caliph, Mullah and Allama.
