Libya’s liberation: interim ruler unveils more radical than expected plans for Islamic law

Telegraph

Mustafa Abdul-Jalil, the chairman of the National Transitional Council and de   fact president, had already declared that Libyan   laws in future would have Sharia, the Islamic code, as its “basic source”.

But that formulation can be interpreted in many ways – it was also the basis   of Egypt’s largely secular constitution under President Hosni Mubarak, and   remains so after his fall.

Mr Abdul-Jalil went further, specifically lifting immediately, by decree, one   law from Col. Gaddafi’s era that he said was in conflict with Sharia – that   banning polygamy.

In a blow to those who hoped to see Libya’s economy integrate further into the   western world, he announced that in future bank regulations would ban the   charging of interest, in line with Sharia. “Interest creates disease   and hatred among people,” he said.

Gulf states like the United Arab Emirates, and other Muslim countries, have   pioneered the development of Sharia-compliant banks which charge fees rather   than interest for loans but they normally run alongside western-style banks.

  2. And Patriots are considered Domestic Terrorist.
