Will Jews rejoice as monotheism advances in Nimrod's land?

Over at the Whiskey Bar:, Bill is all kvetchy about the latest developments in Iraq. In a post entitled Slouching Towards the Islamic Republic, he notes the latest from Reuters:
U.S. diplomats have conceded ground to Islamists on the role of religion in Iraq, negotiators said on Saturday as they raced to meet a 48-hour deadline to draft a constitution under intense U.S. pressure. U.S. diplomats, who have insisted the constitution must enshrine ideals of equal rights and democracy, declined comment. Shi'ite, Sunni and Kurdish negotiators all said there was accord on a bigger role for Islamic law than Iraq had before.
and then points out, rather sullenly, that the similar Islamic clause in the Afghani constitution is helping keep Iraqi women under the same Sharia-based subjugation they were back in the Taliban era.

Sure, that's what you expect a liberal to say.

But look at it from the standpoint of traditional values and God-given morality -- that is, put on your Avi Shafran hat or Dennis Prager yarmulke. It took fewer than 2,000 American combat deaths to replace secular, sexually tolerant countries with monotheistic, God-fearing, sexually restrained regimes.

Isn't that a victory for our side? TrackBack
