Theocracies In The East And West

I was itching to find a fitting context to link to Salam Pax's seven-part account in The Guardian, of his stay in Washington, DC. Now here is a quote from Salam:

And that is another thing that seemed to be incomprehensible to one of my new Washington friends: when we were talking about the popularity of the clerical militia chief Moqtada al-Sadr I was asked how anyone could be fooled by someone who so obviously used religion to boost his own popularity and went for the lowest common denominator for popular appeal? I was saved by another guest who asked if we were talking about Bush or Sadr here.

...and from a different angle, here is Naomi Klein's acidic remark, towards the end of her long account of the failed neocon attempt to turn Iraq into a free-market paradise (see previous post):

Iraq was to the neocons what Afghanistan was to the Taliban: the one place on Earth where they could force everyone to live by the most literal, unyielding interpretation of their sacred texts.
