Why Liberals Love Islamists, Part XXXVI

Harvard welcomes Khatami so he can reiterate that executing homosexuals isn't always wrong. The sharia police are whacking women with sticks for exposing their ankles in public. Multiculturalists insist that Western nations should make room for sharia law in our culture. And now the latest from the Religion of Peace:

"Pakistani rights activists called on the government on Sunday to suspend Islamic laws on rape and adultery until controversy over them is settled. The government is struggling to amend the laws, known as the Hudood Ordinances, which require a rape victim to produce four male witnesses to the crime or risk charges of adultery.

President Pervez Musharraf, who espouses a philosophy of "enlightened moderation," had called for a review of the laws and the government had drafted an amendment taking rape out of the sphere of religious law and putting it under the penal code.

But the government backtracked last week after Islamists threatened to quit parliament if the laws were changed, and agreed to keep rape both in Islamic and civil law."

No wonder the Harvard Left loves these guys!
