This Is What Libyan Democracy Looks Like


Mustafa Abdul Jalil, the chairman of the National Transitional Council, promised Libyans that they will be free, if you can call living under Sharia law, free.

Jalil said, “We are seeking to establish a state government by law and welfare — and Sharia, Islamic law, should be the main source of law.”

He did also add, “We will not accept any extremist ideology, on the right or the left. We are a Muslim people, for a moderate Islam, and will stay on this road.”
