Islam, democracy, bikinis and polygamy

CNN) — It’s not often that the issue of polygamy makes it to the top of the political agenda. But in the past week it’s become a litmus test for the course of the Arab spring, and part of the debate about the compatibility of Islam and democracy.

Declaring that Libya was liberated, interim Prime Minister Mustafa Abdul-Jalil said last Sunday that laws restricting polygamy would be nullified. Islamic Shariah law would be the basic source of legislation, he said, and new banks would comply with Islam’s prohibition of interest and speculation.
