Afghan`s `Taliban-lite` constitution...officially an Islamic republic
So bush is TWO FOR TWO in making ISLAMIC states! What a total fuck-up.

Afghan`s `Taliban-lite` constitution
New government to be officially Islamic republic

Those who were hopeful the new Afghan government would be open, pluralistic and tolerant of other religions, extending rights to women and minority religions will be disappointed by the first draft of the constitution.

It is a blueprint for a repressive state, what the U.S. Commission for International Religious Freedom calls "Taliban-lite."

Taliban Ex-Governor Elected to Afghan Parliament

Mawlawi Mohammed Islam Mohammadi, who was the Taliban's governor of Bamiyan province when the fifth-century Buddha statues were blown up with dynamite and artillery in March 2001, was chosen to represent the neighboring province of Samangan, according to results posted by the U.N.-Afghan election organizers. Election law did not bar former Taliban officials from participating in the Sept. 18 polls.
