Can Hezbollah and Hamas Be Democratic?

Reader comment on item: Can Hezbollah and Hamas Be Democratic?

Abdelaziz Bouteflika, Algeria's head, in the summit being presently held in the city of Alger, put it bluntly "the Islamic groups agree to a cease-fire only as a tactic"!!

Left wingers are the same everywhere --- they behave here in Paris (France) the same way as in America and will manage to have the world run by extremists.

It is unbelievable that they do not learn from past experience, like that of the gulag in Russia, Nazi Germany, fascism, etc. etc. etc. It took years to even Jean Paul Sartre, the well-known French writer and philosopher, to change his mind and --- they still make the same mistake today!
