In 2011 the Obama Regime and it’s quisling Republican enablers, lead by John McCain, assisted Islamist rebels in overthrowing Qaddafi. They lied to the American people that this was a revolution for Democracy. It was nothing moire than Islamists overthrowing an Arab Nationalist Secular regime. Qaddafi had been an American ally against Al-Qaeda and had given up his WMD program. Now Libya is set to make Sharia law the cornerstone of their “democracy.”
“Egypt is Islamic, it will not be secular!” Islamist supporters of Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi have taken to chanting this slogan during street protests in Cairo. While the mantra fills opponents of the Egyptian president with dread, as does a Morsi-backed draft Constitution ensuring laws and rights will be strictly subordinated to sharia law, such chants would hardly prove controversial in Libya, Egypt’s neighboring Arab-Spring country—nor would they propel tens of thousands onto the streets of Tripoli or Benghazi to express dissent.
The constitutional debate that Libya is likely to have in the coming months—once its new rulers have decided on how to proceed with a draft—is going to be different from Egypt’s, and less about whether Islamic law should figure in the Constitution. Across the political spectrum, there’s a general acceptance that the country’s new laws must reflect religion and that sharia will figure prominently—only a small minority question this.
During the campaign for the country’s elections last July, party leaders—even those from moderate parties, such as Mahmoud Jibril, leader of the National Forces Alliance—acknowledged that sharia would significantly influence any Constitution. New laws should have a “reference to sharia,” Jibril told The Daily Beast, arguing, “Sharia law, when it was understood in the proper way, managed to create one of the great civilizations in human history. The problem is not with sharia or Islam; the problem is with the interpretation of sharia.”
That is what is in dispute between the Muslim Brotherhood and the “Moderates” in Libya. It’s how Sharia law is interpreted, not if it is valid for the 21st Century. Qaddafi, for all his faults, was a secular ruler and no threat to us. Libya is just another emirate in the growing Sunni Islamic Caliphate brought you with your taxpayer dollars!
These are McCain’s heroes.
