ON ELECTIONS - NO DEMOCRACY IN IRAQ



By the way, there is no more contradiction between a Muslim State and democracy than there is between a Christian, Hindu or a Jewish State and democracy. Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East and Britain like the Scandinavian countries have official religions. The important thing is to secure equal treatment of all the citizens of the state. That can be accomplished by conditioning their membership in international organizations on that principle not to mention reminding Muslim countries that they have diasporas. Muslims cannot continue to demand equal treatment in the non-Muslim world if they do not demand the same for other religions in Dar al Islam.
