The seemingly inability of the Bush administration to understand the meaning of democracy – or their need to please Muslims instead of standing by democratic principles – has sealed the failure of our military operations in both Iraq and Afghanistan. They have allowed a constitution to be implemented in both countries that makes Islamic law – not freedom of the individual – the deciding factor in all legal issues.

Here’s article 2 of Iraq’s constitution.

First: Islam is the official religion of the State and it is a fundamental source of legislation:

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

And here’s article 3 of the Afghan constitution.

Ch. 1, Art. 3

In Afghanistan, no law can be contrary to the beliefs and provisions of the sacred religion of Islam.

How absolute and utterly stupid our supposed learned men in constitutional law could let that language be placed in the Iraq and Afghanistan constitutions? Have they been so brainwashed by a liberal education that could not see what would happen if such wording were allowed in their constitution – the law of the land?

Do you think these numb nuts could ever see this coming about?

An Afghan reporter sentenced to death after downloading an article from the internet on women’s rights has said his trial lasted just four minutes.

The Bush policy of democracy in action.

Pervez Kambaksh, 23, told the UK’s Independent newspaper from his prison cell he was denied access to a lawyer and not allowed to defend himself.

Mr Kambaksh was convicted of distributing an article insulting to Islam, which he denies.

His appeal against the death sentence is pending.

What say you now Mr. Bush and Cheney?

His ordeal began when he was questioned by some religious teachers at his university last October.

They said some other students claimed he had written a blasphemous article.

Mr Kambaksh says he merely downloaded from an Iranian website an article which questioned why polygamy was all right for men but not women.

Some days later he was told the Afghan intelligence services wanted to see him.

In the police station he was put under arrest, he said, and told it was for his own protection as otherwise he might be killed.

After a month in jail Mr Kambaksh was charged in court with blasphemy and other crimes against Islam.

The war against fundamentalist Islam will not be lost militarily. It will be surrendered by the politicians.
