The status of Iraqi Christians remain uncertain as the newly proposed constitution enshrines Islam as the official source of all law in the country. Such a provision could drastically reduce the free exercise of their faith. I'm not sure this was the goal evangelicals had when the vast majority of them became enthusiastic backers of the war in Iraq.
And a UN report focuses on the increasing gulf between the wealthy and poor, with some countries slipping behind on infant mortality, life expectancy, income, etc. from where they were in 1990. The UN's call is for a commitment by wealthier nations to reduce world wide poverty and to reverse the growing disparities. Not surprisingly the Bush administration has signaled their opposition to these goals.
