Sure, like everything else you fail to take things in context.

The bogus islamic context again. For the readers Muslims are told when one debates infidels and an infidel makes a good point just say: Context

Your claim is bogus

Then you did not realize that you don't really know very much about what is really democracy then you wrote

I was talking about democracy in Middle Eastern countries, and surely the one that is most democratic out of them is Iran, and the other example I gave was Turkey. I meant democratic in that Iran has elections,

ROTFL! Elections alone do not mean very much. I'm sure Hitler and Stalin and Idi Amin had elections and oh yeah they called their countries: democracies! What a joke

Let me repeat one more time: a pre-requisite for democracy is secularism ( you did not get it did you? and do you really know what is really secularism? I doubt very much) and if you do not have first secularism then you cannot have democracy. So what is really Iran? It is a theocracy that holds elections. Big difference

So much for your Muslim education

in which the population votes, you really love twisting words dont you?
