The New Iraqi Constitution

Section 1, Article 2 states:

"Islam is the official religion of the State and it is a fundamental source of legislation."

Shortly after it also states:

"No law that contradicts the established provisions of Islam may be established."

"Guarantees the Islamic identity of the majority of the Iraqi people and guarantees the full religious rights of the all individuals to freedom of religious belief and practice such as Christians, Yazedis, and Mandi Sabeans."

Anyone see anything about Jews in there?

Well... at least we have "bio-diversity" and Universal Health Care covered.

Those who cheer for the Elephant team will point out that the Iraqi constitution also states that, "No law that contradicts the established provisions of democracy may be established." Of course... since the majority of the people want sharia... then that doesn't violate democracy does it?

We've destroyed one breeding ground for islamic extremism, and replaced it with another. We've done so because we've addressed the system, and not the cause.

If you want to deal with extremism, you first have to kill all the extremists. Or at least the vast majority of them.

God dealt with this matter a few times before... I think we should've followed His almighty example..

See the Canaanites for details.
