What I want to know is: how will these two sections play out?
Each Iraqi has the right to freedom of thought, conscience, and religious belief and practice. Coercion in such matters shall be prohibited.
And Article 7A:
Islam is the official religion of the State and is to be considered a source of legislation. No law that contradicts the universally agreed tenets of Islam, the principles of democracy, or the rights cited in Chapter Two of this Law may be enacted during the transitional period.
It isn’t that I think 7A contradicts 13F. It doesn’t. Even the most radical Muslim spokesman such as Sayyid Qutb denounced religious coercion and hotly denied that Islamic jihad mandated it. But Islamic law, while allowing Jews and Christians to practice their religions, also severely restricts their rights and mandates all manner of discrimination against them. Thus it is not enough to guarantee freedom of thought and conscience. Equality of rights for non-Muslims must be explicitly guaranteed — particularly in light of the fact that no law can be made that contradicts Islam. Otherwise dhimmi provisions could be enforced against non-Muslims in Iraq and be presented as fully in accord with this constitution.
Article 12 forbids religious discrimination. But Sharia Muslims do not consider the dhimmi laws discrimination. They consider them simple justice.
