The dust has not yet settled over the Libyan capital of Tripoli since rebels took control over the weekend. But already, a draft constitutional charter for the transitional state has appeared online (link below). It is just a draft, mind you, and gauging its authenticity at this point is difficult. There is also no way to know whether this draft or something similar will emerge as the final governing document for a new Libyan regime.

As both the Morning Bell and Washington in a Flash noted today, Heritage Fellow Jim Phillips recently pointed out that Islamist forces “appear to make up a small but not insignificant part of the opposition coalition,” and must be prevented “from hijacking Libya’s future.” Parts of the draft Constitution allay those fears, while others exacerbate them.

Much of the document describes political institutions that will sound familiar to citizens of Western liberal democracies, including rule of law, freedom of speech and religious practice, and a multi-party electoral system.

But despite the Lockean tenor of much of the constitution, the inescapable clause lies right in Part 1, Article 1: “Islam is the Religion of the State, and the principal source of legislation is Islamic Jurisprudence (Sharia).” Under this constitution, in other words, Islam is law. That makes other phrases such as “there shall be no crime or penalty except by virtue of the law” and “Judges shall be independent, subject to no other authority but law and conscience” a bit more ominous.

  1. Sharia is the foundation of laws in all Muslim countries. Because the western governments and zionists have engaged in a process of delegitimising Islam and the dehumanisation of Muslims, the idea of a just code of laws based on God’s guidance is repellent to sheeple.

    Do you expect Arabs to adopt the laws of their oppressors and the killers of their people? Perhaps sheeple expect the Libyan to adopt the lawlessness of the Italians; their colonial oppressors? Or maybe you feel the Napoleonic Codes that brought the mossad bastard Sarkozy to power is more appropriate?

  2. The Chernicks are also major funders of Jewish groups including: The American Jewish Congress, The Jewish Federation Council of Greater Los Angeles, and The Anti-Defamation League.

    Laura Rozen has discovered that Chernick’s charity-giving is done through the Fairbrook Foundation ($66-million in assets). According to its 2008 IRS 990 report, among the far-right pro-Israel groups he’s funding are:

    Ateret Cohanim ($30,000), involved in the Judaization of East Jerusalem through “appropriation” of Arab homes
    Muslim-basher Bridgette Gabriel’s American Congress for Truth ($50,000)
    Aish HaTorah, funders of the anti-Muslim films Obsessed and Third Jihad ($14,000)
    the anti-Palestinian media advocacy group MEMRI ($100,000)
    American Freedom Alliance, another Muslim-bashing group, founded by Avi Davis, which defends western civilization from the unwashed hordes ($120,000)
    Gary Bauer’s American Values ($80,000)
    Horowitz’s Center for the Study of Popular Culture ($160,000)
    The anti-Arab media advocacy group CAMERA ($25,000)
    The Council for Democracy and Tolerance, an Arab-bashing group established by a Pakistani neocon ($160,000)
    Defend the West, yet another Muslim-turncoat group founded by Ibn Warraq ($130,000)
    Hudson Institute ($50,000); Heritage Foundation ($50,000)
    The Jewish neo-con security think tank JINSA ($15,000)
    The anti-Arab media advocacy group Second Draft ($40,000)
    Stand With Us ($20,000); and Daniel Pipes’ Middle East Forum ($180,000).
    In 2005, Chernick gave $60,000 to the Central Fund of Israel, one of the largest pro-settler ‘philanthropic’ advocacy groups.

  5. Libyan Draft Constitution: Sharia is ‘Principal Source of Legislation

    Sharia law is trying to be imposed here in the States upon all of us. Motherfuck Sharia law, and motherfuck any one who chooses to be enslaved by it. And, Motherfuck those who are trying to impose that bullshit on us. IE Fuck them all.

    If the stupid Libyans want it, let them have it. They have no idea what freedom is, so, why change that? Let them be the slaves of the sharia bullshit. Keep it over there. Not here in the USA.

    “Meet the new boss, same as the old boss”.

    Think of it as a change in “management” only. Why? Because that is all that it is. The Libyans fail to see “freedom” as the way to becoming independent. Under sharia law, they shall always be a slave to TPTB. Let them. They seem to enjoy it.

    Any one here that wishes to dispute sharia law with me better be loaded for bear. I have those sharia laws and shall shoot back using “overwhelming fire power” using sharia against you. Therefore, Be advised. You can fool the dullards, you cannot fool me. Oh, and for those of you who defend sharia, fuck you to.

    Have a nice day washing your filthy stinking feet while you point your stinking ass towards the sky. LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! allah akbar …………..allah can suck my dick right after he eats the peanuts out of my shit. Think of it as a “Goodbar” rather than an akbar and it has a “creamy milky center”. LOL!!!!!!!! Too gross for the rag heads? Tough shit…..ain’t it? Do something about it motherfuckers.
