This is George Bush’s accountability moment. That’s why I’m here. The mainstream media aren’t holding him accountable. Neither is Congress. So I’m not leaving Crawford until he’s held accountable. - Cindy Sheehan

There are things worth fighting for. And there are even some worth dying for. But Iraq is not one of them. - James Moore

The Prospect of Islamic Law in Iraq

from Informed Comment
A secular Muslim reader writes on the reactionary implications of implementing Islamic canon law in Iraq:

"I am not sure why America is supporting the implementation of Sharia to be imposed from the top to bottom at a time of chaos, killings and mayhem. Corruption is rampant in Iraq, and assuming there is implementation of Islamic canon law, would the punishment start with Allawi, whose cabinet members including his defense minister [are accused of having] pocketed hundreds of millions of dollars--or a man who steals a pack of cigarette from vendor? I am sure the latter is true. "

BushCo: Just SIGN the damned thing! Wonder what the spin on this will be.

It's a model for what they want here, a Theocracy where the church...their church...is more powerful than the people and their elected officials.

Some people say the Catholic Church is bad, look out for those Southern Baptists. Those people will stone ya, and not in the fun way either.
