Islamic Democracy


Is Islamic Democracy an oxymoron? It certainly seems a lost cause.

It would appear that when Islamic nations get democracy, they don't really know what to do with it and end up fighting each other until another strong man rises to the top.

You can count the number of 'free' Islamic democracies on the fingers of.... well, three fingers!

My greatest fear is that the number of incorrupt 'free' democracies is going the same way.

  1. When is an "Islamic state" not a theocracy?

    Let's face it theocracy is still really one "strong man" in charge, it's just that orders are issued through middle men called priests, imams and rabbis...
