Who didn’t see this coming?
Gadhafi is dead and gone. Our President thinks that’s great news. He said, “After four decades of brutal dictatorship and eight months of deadly conflict, the Libyan people can now celebrate their freedom and the beginning of a new era of promise.”
Freedom & Promise must be the new Hope & Change. It’s the promise there will be no freedom.
The leader of the Libyan transitional government, Mustafa Abdul-Jalil, declared Islamic Sharia would be the foundation of the new Libya. He also said that existing laws that contradict Sharia would be nullified.
That sure is good news, especially for women & anyone who is not devout Moslem. And hey, polygamy is back. What, you say? Wasn’t it in place before? Yes, but before, the hubby had to get permission from his first wife. What a drag. Now he won’t have to. He can pretty much do what he wants. The wife, or wives, will have no say at all.
Abdul-Jalil also said new banks would be set up to follow the Islamic banking system, which bans charging interest as a practice deemed usury. For the time being, he said interest would be canceled from any personal loans already taken out and less than 10,000 Libyan dinars (about $7,500).
Wow! The “Occupy” people would love this guy, at least until he had most of them killed for not following Islam, or maybe being homosexual, or something equally as heinous.
Newsmax.com reports, “Neighboring Tunisia, which put the so-called Arab Spring in motion with mass protests nearly a year ago, has taken the biggest step on the path to democracy, voting for a new assembly Sunday in its first truly free elections. Egypt, which has struggled with continued unrest, is next with parliamentary elections slated for November.” Remember, Iranian president, Ahmadinejad is freely elected. So was Hitler.
Truly free elections. Really? Is this bizarro world? I wonder if these reporters actually believe what they write?
Let us do a quick “Freedom” run-down in the region. Tunisia hasn’t declared Islamic Sharia, but soon will. Egypt is adopting Sharia. Iran, well, that’s a given. Turkey has all but rejected the west & is aligning with Iran. Syria also. Soon after we leave Iraq, it will deteriorate & be taken by radical Islam. Now Libya. Caliphate anyone?
Definitely sucks to be Israel & may suck to be us.
