Islam as part of the law

Reader comment on item: Islamic Law Rules In Iraq

Submitted by Lenn Chow (Canada), Mar 3, 2004 at 23:03

It can't be that there is thought to disbar Islam completely. It would be the height of political folly to contemplate such. Think how it would be if attempt were made to ban Christian philosophy outright in U.S. law making. Islam as it currently manifests in a significant portion of its adherents is a disturbing reality, but banning it outright would be disastrous. I agree the compromise may not be very reassuring, but is anyone suggesting there was a better one in the offing? The decision to begin the Iraq war was always fraught with risks, but risks worth taking. From here on the U.S. simply must use its best strategy, and move on. And I believe the world's best bet is still George Bush.
