From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

An Islamic republic in its modern context has come to mean several things. Theoretically, it is a "STATE" under a particular theocratic form of government advocated by some Muslim religious leaders in the Middle East and Africa. In an Islamic republic, the laws of the state are required to be compatible with the laws of Sharia, Islamic law, while the state remains a republic.

Sir,

The meanings behind CREATE is opposite to the meanings behind HOME. Nationhood can not be created. Aboriginality can not be created. They are two natural and spontaneous phenomena. If you talk about states in the world of politics (when refering to the State Of Israel), you should base your self on the definition of a state which stands on four:

1- Population
2- Territory
3- Government
4- Recognition

I do not see religion in there...!
