German version of The Freedom Crusade, Revisited: A Symposium

Reader comment on item: Is Omar Alghabra of Canada's Liberal Party an Islamist?

It is not true, that
1. every country looks to the American experience. Only the USA and the UK have majority rule. All other countries have representative election systems which makes their government unstable not like in USA and UK.

2. Democracy can not be exported. See the bad luck with that in all of Africa.

3. Do the Iraqis want democracy? I am not convinced at all. Remember what happened in Argentine after Perón? Only by not counting the white votes it was possible to give the government to so called democrats.

With your fear of what will come out of the export of democracy to the middle east, I agree after what can be seen in Africa.
