Muslims are the biggest beneficiary of democracy

Reader comment on item: Iran's Representative in the Knesset - Haneen Zuabi

Dear Dr Pipes:

It is not a surprise that Israeli MP met with Hamas leadership. Since the demise of communism, most of the non-Islamic world has adopted freedom and democracy while most of the Islamic world has avoided democracy as a plague. The irony is that Muslim minority groups living in free and democratic societies like , Western Europe, India, Israel and North America are the biggest beneficiaries of the democratic systems in these countries. These muslim minorities are not brave enough to admit that they deserve no credit for the freedom and democracy that exists in the societies that they live in. But they are selfish enough to take advantage of it. In Israel an Islamic MP cohorts mingles with Terrorist groups, in India a muslim MP openly demands affirmative action for Muslims, in the USA a muslim group pays lip service to 'inter faith dialog', in Western Europe Islamic factions create their own private enclaves and demand ever expanding sets rights. As a bonus they cry wolf on the smallest sign of discrimination against them. While this is going on the minority populations in Islamic emirates and dictatorships lives under the threat of ever diminishing rights and even further curtailment of civil rights.

We cannot surrender our democratic system to take this advantage away form Islamists but we can certainly use it to expose their hypocrisy. Thanks for writing about Haneen Zuabi of Israel. Democracies around the world are full of politicians like her and they must all be exposed.
