Juan Cole has posted the most depressing weblog entry I’ve read in recent memory. In short, an Islamic newspaper in England claims a professor of Islamic Law who was working for the Bush administration produced a report predicting that Iraq’s eventual government will be Islamic, unwilling to recognize Israel, and hostile to the west (also known as the United States). Of course, I’m reporting this fourth hand, so who knows what the real story is. The professor in question, Noah Feldman, teaches at NYU, and wrote a book called After Jihad about encouraging democracy in the Muslim world.
