Militant Europeans

Here'sThe Corner
Mark Steyn noted here yesterday how peculiar it is that Francis Fukuyama now casually assumes that the European experiment of transcending sovereignty is a good idea that should be emulated. It's worth adding that, on this point, he and other intellectuals--and of course Europeans--are in agreement with Militant Islamists.

The Ayatollah Khomeini quite specifically opposed national sovereignty and he, too, favored a trans-national rule of law--although unlike Europeans he believed the correct alternatives are religious identification and sharia law.[Italics mine]
