Now Playing: "Crazy Love" by Poco
On CNN this morning, Wolf Blitzer's concerned that Islam may become the basis of the Iraqi constitution. Really? I find it interesting that liberals could be so explicit in stating this concern. Aren't they supposed to be in favor of any tradition that isn't Judeo-Christian ---just by default?
Nevertheless, if the liberal/anti-war crowd's defense of Islam were food, you'd go starving trying to find anyone of that persuasion to explain why Islam shouldn't be changed or destroyed beyond recognition. They can't do it because they know that Islamic law and culture is inimical to their own status as whatever they themselves might be: gay, Christian, outspoken, a drinker, American, female, etc.
The only thing these people do know is that we are wrong to want to change the primary ideology of the Middle East, which is submission to the totalitarian.
Anyway, let the Iraqis do what they will with their constitution. I would think that the very nature of real democracy in a modern society would be strong enough to transform sharia: often, publicly, and to great effect.
