Iraqi Governing Council ratifies constitution 

NY Times article here.

Here's an interesting passage from the article:

The governing council members agreed to compromise language on several difficult issues, the Iraqi officials said. Islam was to be designated "a source" of legislation, not "the primary source," as had been demanded by several Muslim members of the council.

That compromise, which had been one of the most intractable areas of disagreement, was finessed when Iraqi leaders agreed to insert language prohibiting the passage of any legislation "against" Islam, Mr. Qanbar said.

I'm not exactly sure what this means; I just hope that similar legislation "against" Christianity, Judaism and other religions is also prohibited.
