Why We Fight: Sharia Imposed; Men Permitted 4 Wives

It was announced by Libya's transitional government that what Obama praised as "a new era of promise," will include sharia law, the persecution of "infidels," public stonings and the right of men to take up to four wives. 

Congratulations, Imam Obama.  We know how important this must be to you and your people.

Mustafa Abdul-Jalil, the leader of Libya’s transitional government, has announced that sharia will be the “basic source” of law in post-Qadaffi Libya.

““We are an Islamic country,” Abdul-Jalil said. “We take the Islamic religion as the core of our new government. The constitution will be based on our Islamic religion.”

Wire services reported that Abdul-Jalil announced that the new government would lift “restrictions on the number of wives Libyan men can take.” The Qur’an permits men to have four wives.

According to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, Libyan law currently permits a man to take up to four wives, but only with the consent of the first wife and only with proof that he can support more than one wife.
