In the name of democracy, U.S. helps bring sharia to Iraq
And why not, since the majority of people in Iraq want sharia? Isn’t that what democracy means? From an article in today’s New York Times:
The tentative agreements on Islam were brokered by the American ambassador, Zalmay Khalilzad, according to a Kurdish negotiator who spoke on the condition of anonymity, citing the delicacy of the talks. The Kurdish leader said that in both cases, Mr. Khalilzad had sided with Shiite leaders in backing a more expansive role for Islam. That, the Kurd said, angered many of the secular-minded Iraqis who have been fighting for a stricter separation between Islam and the state.
