You are correct that Islamic law will take Iraq down

Reader comment on item: Islamic Law Rules In Iraq

Submitted by Roger E. Nasiff (United States), Mar 3, 2004 at 19:13

The hope we had at the beginnning of the war to free the Iraqis is now gone.

The love of thy neighbor that we had going in will not exist there now that the Quran is the center of their legal system.

We have lost the war. As usual, the good will of the American people to help the helpless is strong and the military is strong, but the politicians and diplomates have lost the war due to their ignorance and incompetence.

Our leaders insist on not accepting the truth and not pursuing it. The Quran is clearly opposed to loving thy neighbor. Its focus is clear: dominate the planet. Abuse, torture, terroize and destroy as necessary everyone who does not want to follow their god Allah. All people who follow the Quran call themselves Muslims and belong to the religion of Islam/Muhammedism. Since the Quran has this dominance, any country based on it can be expected to abuse its non-Muslim people and neighbors as the Quran commands them to do.

Some Quranic References: Sura 2:216-217; 4:23-24; 4:95; 4:157; 4:171; 5:19; 5:36; 5:75-78; 5:85; 8:12; 8:59-60; 8:69; 8:72; 9:3; 9:5; 9:29; 9:30; 9:111; 9:113; 22:15; 60:1; 60:7-9; 98:5-6; etc.

Our leaders had a good plan, but now they have turned against the Iraqi people. It is true that many Iraqi people think Sharia law is a good thing, but they are ignorant of the law of love that is opposite of the Quran.

This is a very sad outcome after giving so much for these people. Iraqi freedom is now defined as freedom from Saddam's oppression and slavery to Quranic oppression.

I pray God has mercy on us and our leaders. I pray that our soldiers forgive us too, especially those who have given their lives for the Iraqi people.
