    I’m not sure what to make of it, since the words like freedom and rights inside Sharia law mean something different than we might think.
    I do see why the left and Islamists seem to be of similar mind– this document would make a Socialist proud– dismissing the inconvenience of Sharia law. The Socialist would substitute Humanist law and be at peace.
    I’m curious if there is any similarity to this and Iraq’s constitution?
    I’m not curious enough to do any research, mind you.

    It’s kind of a welfare state wish-list, with no means to pay-up on the promises, anchored at the head by a President (Pharoah) that controls the police state. No wonder American progressives are so ga-ga about this! Obama is thinking, “this is really, really good!”

    It is an elaborate charade. The two tells that it is are:
    1. It is too long. The length of statist documents tells you that the geniuses behind them either have tried to anticipate everything that could go wrong—impossible—or believe that repeating certain magical words—“the people,” “rights,” “democracy”—will conjure into existence concepts that are totally alien to Islamic Arab society into existence.
    2. The bigger tell is that Sharia law will be the basis of lawmaking in the new republic. Translation: Abandon all hope that the next political season in Egypt will be anywhere as benign as spring.


    Literacy in Egypt 72% – Shura Councils 100%.  Omitted: recognition of previous treaties.  

    total population:
    male: 80.3%
    female: 63.5% (2010 est.)
