    Islam is not a "healthy" society.
    If islam supports this treatment, should we be very particular about the muslim sects that come to this country? The government has to be complaisant for this to occur. If the government is taken over by the religious extremists, is this possible, here, or anywhere else in the world? Should a condition of the green card or citizenship requirement be: follow the current laws, and do nothing to diminish this country?

    We here all about how terrible this country treats people; why is there absolute silence about how other societies treat their own?

    What's strange is that it was Bush/Republicans who worked so hard to change Iraq into an Islamic Theocracy.

    Full Text of Iraqi Constitution - washingtonpost.com

    Article 2:

    First: Islam is the official religion of the State and it is a fundamental source of legislation:

    A. No law that contradicts the established provisions of Islam may be established.


    Remember how proud Bush and the Republicans were that Iraq had a "new" constitution? When thoughtful people pointed out that "Islam" is now the "national religion" when before they were "secular", Republicans said, "We can't tell them how to live". Even while they marched into Baghdad and "told" them how to live pointing a gun to their heads.

    History will point to this as just another Republican failure. Not as big as what they did to the economy or our military. But it's a big one. I'm not sure if it's as big as letting Bin Laden go. Depends on how long al Qaeda lasts. History will be the judge.

    And don't forget. Republicans want to do that here with Christianity. They are driven by "ideology".

    RDean, are you still pushing this particular myth? Despite having been shown dozens of times that it is 100% incorrect?
    Do you never learn? Are capable of learning?

    I am not sure that Chinese communists, African animists, or any other third world country treats people better. While deplorable, it isn't representative of Islam per se.

    HOLD EVERYTHING!

    All the times I pointed out that Iraq is now an Islamic Theocracy by constitution and the many, many times Republicans ON THIS VERY SITE said, "We can't tell them how to live", never happened? That NEVER happened? Seriously? You're saying "It never happened?"

    the hypocrisy of rdouche:

    We had no business invading Iraq, it was an illegal war, what right do we have to tell them how to live.

    But hey, since we're there anyway, and we have a democrat president, let's go ahead and tell them how to live.

    what a knob.

    Thank you for 'joining' the discussion. Do you have anything to say 'on topic'?

    Do you know of any other society that does not 'allow' the mother to look at her own child without a barrier? Any other society that does not 'allow' girls or women to laugh?
