Robert Fisk: The truth behind the Israeli propaganda

via Mansoor

Jon Stewart quote on Gaza

"Whatever you might think of the respective leadership, the Israelis or the Hamas, whatever gods you may pray to, or whatever direction you pray to them in, if you can't even look at Gaza and agree that there is suffering there that needs to be alleviated, no matter who is to blame for it, then your heart is so dead tourists
flock there to float on their back in it." - Jon Stewart 6/2/10

Noah Feldman referencing Dr. J :)

On the classical Islamic constitution and the place of law in it, see Sherman A. Jackson, Islamic Law and the State: The Constitutional Jurisprudence of Shihab al-Din al-Qarafi (Leiden: E. J. Brill, 1996). This work remains one of the only recent texts addressing the interrelationship between classical Islamic law and the classical Islamic constitutional order. For Jackson's review of the most important older Orientalist work on Islamic constitutional thought, including important works by Gibb, Coulson, Watt, Lambton, and Rosenthal, see xxxv-xl.
