Especially:

The failure to grasp the nature of the new Iraqi constitution extends to the document itself. Much noise has been made about Article Two, in which it is stated that "Islam is the official religion of the state and is a basic source of legislation," and some praise has been issued for Article 14, which proclaims equality of gender, ethnic groups, religion, opinion, social and economic status, etc. But little has been said about one of the most remarkable and significant elements of the new Iraqi charter: The ban in Article Seven on "Entities or trends that justify or propagate racism, terrorism, 'takfir,' sectarian expulsions," as well as the Saddamist Ba'ath party.

(Emphasis mine)
