Albeit without the awful toll of American blood, and far less American treasure, the US under President Obama's feckless, if now "triumphal" leadership, has extended the delusive utopian policy of his Republican predecessor-"Making the World Safe for Sharia?"-to Libya.

The salient feature of Libya's new draft constitution is Part 1, Article 1:

Islam is the Religion of the State, and the principal source of legislation is Islamic Jurisprudence (Sharia).

Once again, we appear to be witnessing  a regional Muslim phenomenon which the prototype Algerian jihadists of the 1990s formulated with succinct candor:

Islamic state by the will of the people.
