As gruesome as this picture is, it has to be shown. This is sharia law, you can’t have one part without (eventually) having the other, it comes as a complete whole. Besides, it’s irrelevant what shade of sharia is being adhered to in any given Islamic state, it’s all immoral, anti-human, anti-human rights and therefore …wrong. KGS
NOTE: To think that this is what NATO was helping the Rabble of Libyan rebels to achieve, sickens the stomach.
” Making a democratic future that more unlikely is the presence of Jihadist groups sent in by some NATO countries, most notably the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG), an extremist group led by Abdelhakim Belhaj, a Libyan Berber with a past among the mujahedeen who fought the Soviets in the 1980s in Afghanistan. After his capture in 2003, he became a collaborator of the Libyan regime and now is serving the Americans.
Sharia begins to cast its shadow on the new democratic Libya
An early draft of Libya’s new constitution is inspired by Islamic law. The NTC rejects the idea of foreign peacekeepers voiced by the United Nations. The presence of Jihadis among the rebels is raising disquieting questions.
Tripoli (AsiaNews/ Agencies) – Libya after Gaddafi could slide towards fundamentalism. Observers note that the National Transitional Council (NTC) plans to make the country an Islamic state based on Sharia. The danger is that greater because the NTC has also rejected the presence of foreign forces on Libyan soil, including United Nation peacekeepers. For some analysts, “rebels” belong to extremist Muslim groups whose goal is an Islamic state, not democracy and human rights.
Article 1 of the NTC’s draft constitution says, “Libya is an independent Democratic state wherein the people are the source of authorities
[. . .]
Islam is the Religion of the State and the principal source of legislation is Islamic Jurisprudence (Sharia).”
Like other Muslim countries, Article 1 goes on to say, “The State shall guarantee for non-Moslems the freedom of practising religious rights and shall guarantee respect for their systems of personal status.”
Although it is just a draft, many analysts are worried by the document’s contradictions, hiding Sharia behind terms dear to Western culture like “freedom” and “rights”.
For many observers, such a text represents a step back compared to Gaddafi who had been more open to other religions and had moved away from strict interpretations of Islam.
