Secular Law vs. the Fiqh in Iraq

MEMRI TV just posted this amazing video of an Iraqi politician calling for the establishment of secular law as the only way of stopping ISIS. You’ll notice that what he says about Islamic law (the fiqh) is very similar to what Robert Spencer and Steve Coughlin say.

From the notes accompanying the video:

In a recent TV interview, former Iraqi MP Ayad Jamal Al-Din called for the establishment of a civil state in Iraq based on man-made law and equality, rather than on Islamic jurisprudence, as the only way to combat ISIS. He further said that there were thousands of mosques in the U.S. and worldwide that incited and prepared people to join ISIS. “Islam has been politicized and is used as a sword,” he said in the Al-Iraqiya TV interview, which aired on October 17.

  1. Tears come to my eyes. Is this the first courageous voice of the Islamic reformation? What a joy to hear… wish that this little stream becomes a river.
    GofV might conveivably be involved in causing apostates! Ideas here might have spread by 8 degrees of freedom to that Iraqui politician.

    • Tears here too. Do right by these wronged people, o world and elevate this kindly man’s cause.

  2. Wow, a brave man indeed. Better than an Islamic “reformation” would be that this man comes to know the Messiah of Israel.
