Islam and Democracy

Whoop!! Who doesn't know that Islam is against democracy. This is the very reason we seek to maintain monarchies in Saudi Arabia and other gulf oil fiefdomes. When Saddam ovethrew the despot of Kuwait we send our money and blood though the great institution of UN and reenthroned the Emir.

We pay 3 billion dollars to Mubarak of Egypt who is the only candidate in the elections to prevent the Islamic borthers coming to power through democracy. Whe Algerian islamist won the first and last free and fair election through ballot box jihad, we were quick to realize that the islamist were going against Quranic teachings. So we recognised and helped the military coup, while similar coupes in Nigeria and Burma earned them pariah status.

We now know that how dangerous places like Indonesia and Turkey has become since they got rid of military dictactors under our protection. It is plane fact that if democracy come to the most rippressed corner of the world, central asia, they would become antiwestern. Nazarbayev of Kazakhstan our great friend is now overseeing OSCE with our help and blessings. We came to know that Hamas has gone against islamic traditions by getting elected in Palestine, we were able to successfully persuade our European friends to apply strict economic blockade and eventually to establish an unelected government in west bank at least.

Remember when Shah in Iran ruled according to true islam iranian friendship was our assets, we even cooperated in nuclear technology with them. Now Iranian started electing lunatics out of their free will, leaving us with no option but bomb them. As we were taught love our nighbours, it is out duty to make sure that democracy never come to islamic lands and they abide by quranic injuction of desoptism and autocracy.
