Ali Sina at faithfreedome.org weighs in on the Palestinian vote. My feelings are similar. I saw Bush's 'light unto the Mohamedans' project described today as a 'catastrophic success.' I think that is a great soundbite and pretty much sums up the results. I wish it could have worked, but it didn't. It is time for Bush and Condi to throw out all these Muslim apologists and dhimmwitted Islamic experts and get some people in there who really understand Islam. No more 'religion of peace' deception. Is it time to start believing your lying eyes.
The Palestinians Have Spoken
This election, more than anything else, tells us who the Palestinians are and where they stand in regards to terrorism.
Bush presses for democracy in Islamic countries as if democracy is panacea. Democracy is however a double edge sword. Democracy without responsibility can lead to tyranny. There is nothing more dangerous than putting the power in the hands of a people who are not responsible.
In countries where people are Islamists, democracy cannot take root. Before we can promote democracy, the Islamic ethos must be replaced with the rule of law, respect for the rights of the minorities and the separation of religion from government. In other worlds these countries must be deislamized.
Bush may have all the good intentions in the world but he does not understand the idiosyncrasy of Muslims. His efforts of trying to impose democracy in Islamic countries are not going to work and in fact they will backfire causing more damage than good. You can’t build too high without a foundation. The foundation for democracy in Islamic countries simply does not exist. The America 's fiasco in Somali should have been enough to make them see that democracy can't be imposed on people who do not want it. The democracies in Afghanistan and in Iraq will fall, as soon as America pulls its troops out of these countries.
Yes, democracy is what the Islamic countries need most. But before democracy can take root, Islam must be weeded out.
