Muslims must embrace democracy

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

Submitted by Ruben Holsteinburg (United States), Mar 22, 2005 at 17:39

We must continue to push for democracy in the Islamic world. This is the only way in which Israel, and the United States can ever be safe from the jihadist monsters.

However, there is no way possible that islamists should be allowed to run in elections, let alone be allowed to win and rule.

The Bush adminstration must pick all the candidates for these senseless peoples. That way regardless of who wins, our security is ensured.

We must pick genuine pro-western leaders for the islamic world. Mahmoud Abbas or Hamid Karzai types are not going to cut it. They have to be commited to the saftey and security of the US and Israel above all else. We must ensure that the Muslim world does as we demand of them, not run their own ulterior agendas.

Our lives depend on this. Anything less and we have lost everything.
