John McCain must be proud of what’s going on in Libya right now because this is what Democracy looks like there. Parades with Al-Qaeda flags flying from almost every vehicle. What do they want? Well, they want Sharia law to govern Libya, which would actually replace Democratic rule. After all, when Democracy births a brutal Islamic theocracy, is it really Democracy?
Hundreds of people have staged a mass demonstration in Benghazi’s liberation square in the latest show of force to demand the adoption of Islamic law (Sharia) in the newly liberated North African Mediterranean country.
A demonstration that might irritate the predominantly secular technocratic interim government and disappoint the western powers that supported the Libyan people getting rid of the former dictator Muammar Gaddadfi.
chanting “The people want an Islamic state”, “the people want Sharia and staging a military parade, the protesters confirmed they would protect the sanctity of Sharia with their lives.
Believing that all atrocities and misfortunes the country has been plagued with are due to Muslim’s desertion of Islamic traditions. The protestors who are described by some secular activists as radical Islamic groups argue that the one and only path for salvation is by clinging on the Islamic values.
Waving flags and banners, preachers have demanded imposing Islamic values that have been denied in practice rather than in theory for four decades arguing that it is now time for cleansing the homelands of Islam from filth and positivist laws that have been inherited from the west, and ruined the Islamic nation for ages.
Republican Senator John McCain must be quite proud of his ‘heroes’.
That was in April, 2011. Here is video of McCain in Benghazi last September, walking by a a courthouse that had, weeks earlier, been where a beheaded man was publicly displayed. Note in this video that McCain walks around smiling as locals shout, ‘Allahu Akhbar’.
Can someone please explain why anyone should listen to McCain when it comes to our policy in Syria?
