In the new Libya, men can take the full Koranic complement of four wives

JC in Houston writes:

And just what do we gain by our lawlessness in Libya? Here is what Abdul-Jalil, the interim leader of Libya, is saying:

Abdul-Jalil laid out a vision for a new Libya with an Islamist tint, saying Islamic Sharia law would be the “basic source” of legislation, and that existing laws that contradict the teachings of Islam would be nullified.

He outlined several changes to align with Islamic law, including putting caps on interest for bank loans and lifting restrictions on the number of wives Libyan men can take. The Muslim holy book, the Quran, allows men up to four wives.

Great win for our side, huh?

It’s one thing when a nation acts lawlessly in order to gain something important for itself. But we’ve acted lawlessly to empower our enemies.
