Those days are gone

Reader comment on item: Understanding Islam
in response to reader comment: The liberal age revisited

Submitted by Michael Hanni Morcos (Canada), Jun 14, 2012 at 11:34

Sorry to disappoint you but i strongly feel that those nostalgic days are gone--the Iranians ,the Saudis ,the Algerians ,the Mubros, the Syrians,,etc.teach English,French ,and German to their elite not as much the masses-i see that more of a weapon than a change to our democratic culture.As far as our Glorious past ;they either take credit for the achievements or adhere to destruction and burning anything Un-Islamic.i can see Egypt taking an identical path of 1979 Iran when the Shaw was displaced--i recall all the extravaganza and luxurious days Iran displayed in those days--look at it now--it seems to be a pattern with Islamic Regimes to adhere to strict sharia protocols to counter what they consider a decadent Western Infedelic Influence.---Egypt is Lost---What are the choices:the same old very corrupt and greedy Military or the New Islamic Revival with the Mubros--Both adhere to their Sharia Versions--which translates to more abuse for minorities,human rights, Sanctity of Lives Etc.etc.while the masses can be as Nostalgic as they want only in their dreams.Again and Again it has to be Sharia - Free or it will be Worse than Iran with Soviet and Chinese Alliances the Minute we withdraw our Financial co -operation because of their Anti-American and un-democratic stands.

Thank You.
