Iraq to become more "islamic" than it was under saddam

a working draft of the new iraqi constitution appears to be heading towards creating an islamic state very different than the multi religious dictatorship the country had under saddam

"Iraq constitution cedes a strong role to Islamic law and could curb women's rights, particularly in personal matters like divorce and family inheritance. "

it seems discussions are taking place on reversing some laws defined last year in the interim Constitution in particular the requirment that at least a quarter of the Iraqi Parliament should be made up of women

this seems another example of true democracy being impossible when delivered by the barrel of a gun
