Â Libya: Polygamy Reinstated!
Â The first act of the zebiba sportin’ Â thug in chief of the post Gaddafi Libya was to declare it a sharia state.
Mr Abdul-Jalil went further, specifically lifting immediately, by decree, one law from Col. Gaddafi’s era that he said was in conflict with Sharia â€” that banning polygamy. (Telegraph)

Now, are those in Tunisia who oppose Islamic rule racists, or are they Islamophobes? It has to be one or the other, or both, right? An update onÂ this story. “Huge turnout in Tunisia’s Arab Spring election,” fromÂ Reuters, October 23 via JW…..

Iranian TV: Libya to be a sharia state
Melanie Phillips: Now what?
There is a significantÂ Islamist presenceÂ among the rebel forces. The commander of the Tripoli Military Council, Abdul al-Hakim al-Hasadi, was formerly head of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, a U.S.-designated terrorist organisation affiliated with al Qaeda. He claims to have disavowed his record of extremism — but who can be reassured by that, especially as he hasÂ admittedÂ that his forces have jihadist links?
And just get your head round this. Al-Hasadi has admitted that he previously fought against ‘the foreign invasion’ in Afghanistan before being captured in 2002 in Pakistan. He was later handed over to the US, and then held in Libya before being released in 2008.
So although al Hasadi was captured as a jihadi enemy trying to kill western forces in Afghanistan, the UK military has subsequently helped him win power in Libya. Indeed, Britain’s backing for the Libyan rebellion has been echoed by al Qaeda. Â Just how crazy is this??
Even more alarmingly it has also been reported that, on the quiet, Iran has been backing the Libyan rebels with humanitarian aid. Iran’s Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi hasÂ said:
‘The head of the National Transitional Council (NTC), Mustafa Abdel Jalil, sent a letter of thanks to President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad for having been on their side and helping’. (source)
