We haven’t had an I told you so update for awhile, and I hate to interfere with all the “We Won!” celebrations, but unlike many, I would rather assess the situation realistically. This just in from AFP (thanks to Doc Washburn):
BAGHDAD (AFP) – Three out of four Iraqis believe Islam should be the main or only source of law and legislation in their country, according to a poll of 2,700 Iraqis.
While just over 74 percent thought Islam should be the sole or main source of legislation, just 2 percent said religion should play no role in law-making, a poll showed Friday.
The findings come as parliament prepares to draft a new constitution, which will notably focus on the role of Islam, Iraq’s official religion, in society.
The poll was based on some 2,705 interviews conducted from April 11 to April 20 by an Iraqi firm employed by the conservative US International Republican Institute.
