Clarence, I refer to the situation this way: the matter is larger than the political arena. Therefore I am not only looking at a political situation, nor am I looking only at a political solution. First, I agree with Abraham Kuyper that there is more than one area in life. Second, to use the mathematical axiom that things equal to the same thing are equal to each other - this has to be used culturally. For we need to hold more than the area of government accountable to the never changing objective standard.

The evidence that the Muslim world is doing this is rather thin. Therefore, in order to change Arab culture, frankly the only option is for the Christian share of the Arab population to increase. In the meantime, I still stand by the idea that a preparatory regime is needed for the Mid East (except for Israel). Is this clearer than mud? For the amount of time for the Christianizing of the Arabs can also be utilized by showing them the ropes there as to how governing ought to be done.
