Any major stir ?

Reader comment on item: Islamic Law Rules In Iraq

Submitted by Hilare (France), Mar 5, 2004 at 07:04

Dear Mister Pipes,

Beyond your current article, as usual well documented and meaningfull, i just can point out that you soundly argued for the obvious : mahomedan people always prefere islamic rules. Please note that they never refer to "militant" islamic rules, nor "islamist" rules. No, simply islamic rules. In few words : the Qoran, only the Qoran.

Of course Mister Pipes, you're right when you take fright of this, islamic rules as source of legislation, to have serious consequences.

As mahomedan people are right to be truly confident in islamic rules, to achieve what they have been educated to "want", and what is called by some irresponsible leftists : "militant" islam or islamism. 1300 years of constant results may give them rock certainty, no ?

So Mister Pipes, no surprise here. [the debate is already over] ? Of course it is. 1300 years of history have teached everybody that mahomedan people, as they have been educated to "think", consider islamic rules as the source of secular / civilian right. To be definite, they even don't consider any difference between secular / civilian and religious being. And islamic rules are everything but not Human rights. At least, those facts are far from a stretch.

So, who could have imagined that a foreign army, even a liberation army, would ever have the ability to change 1300 years of one-way history with democratic rules ? This sounds as a joke, isn't it ?

To draw a conclusion from this current article, i will be very interested, Mister Pipes, to read how you can match your today and very accuracy observation, with another fresh article of your, titled : [Study the Koran?] ?

I think it will be full of lessons to be learned, to read an author hardly be suspected of sympathizing with any islamic drift, explain how he can state one day : "islam is not the reponsible, only islamist drift / people is", and observe some days after : "islamic rules, so islam rules, is leading to the islamic drift".
Submitting....
