(Reuters) — President Omar Hassan al-Bashir said on Saturday Sudan’s next constitution would be “100 percent Islamic” to set an example for neighbouring countries, some of which have seen religious parties gain power after popular uprisings.

The secession of mostly non-Muslim South Sudan a year ago sparked predictions that Sudan, which hosted former al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden in the 1990s, would start implementing Islamic law more strictly.

In a speech to leaders of the mystical Islamic Sufi tradition in Khartoum, Bashir suggested Sudan’s new, post-secession constitution could help guide the region’s political transformation.

“We want to present a constitution that serves as a template to those around us. And our template is clear, a 100 percent Islamic constitution, without communism or secularism or Western (influences),” said Bashir.

Yay! Another mysogynic, 800AD-based society of nutcases!!!

Should read:

"Sudan’s President Calls For New “100% Islamic” Sharia Constitution; Bush thrilled, Obama celebrates."

Though said tongue in cheek (at least in regards to W) it is indisputable that Dear Leader welcomes the spread of Islam and Sharia in the Middle East and countries which recently changed leaders; heck, he welcomes members of the Muslim Brotherhood within his Administration.

With regards to Bush, though naive, clueless and led astray by the likes of the Bottom-Feeding, Traitorous, Rat-Bas-turd, Grover Norquist and other Islamist supporters, he nevertheless was responsible for allowing both Iraq and Afghanistan to form new Governments with Islam/Sharia being their "Controlling Authority," thereby, insuring that NEITHER would EVER be an "ally" of ours and their peoples would never enjoy what he sought: freedom, rights or liberties.
