Zalmay Khalilzad, US Ambassador to Iraq, commenting on the draft Iraqi constitution yesterday on Meet the Press:
With regard to family law, which is a controversial article, it recognizes the freedom of choice, that people can choose which law, whether secular or religious, can–will govern their personal matters having to do with marriage, divorce, inheritance. This is no different than what is the case in Israel.
Hmmm…. I wonder if the US ambassador’s linkage of the Iraqi consitution with the Israeli consitution is why those who oppose the Iraq draft have labelled it Jewish?
