    But that is exactly what it means in Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan, and other Muslim countries throughout the Middle East and Central Asia.

    Yes, it does. All the denial in the world will not change the realities of the limitations women are forced to endure in those countries. And please spare me the "I lived there as a child, so I know" rhetoric. Reality is still reality.

    Islam is not monolithic and Sharia law is interpreted differently in Sudan or Afghanistan than it is in Saudi Arabia or Kuwait or Qatar.

    Your response was cpompletely unrelated to my post and question.

    You said that the Constitution was secular and I said, which we know to be true, that the Muslim Brotherhood is changing that Constitution.

    You then begin defending Sharia Law, despite my not mentioning it at all.

    It seems we both agree that Egypt will come under the control of Muslims, Sharia law, and will no longer be a secular state. Would that be correct?

    However it seems that if Muslims do get control over a pluralistic society, it will no long remain a pluralistic society.

    Seems that many in here that so defend Obama need to study what a caliphate is....

    And while that idea is being ignored, soft-pedaled or derided by leftists, Muslims certainly understand the meaning.

    I created an account on this site just so I could tell you that you are blinded by your wish for Islam to modernize, despite the very apparent intolerance of modern Islam.
