Roger,

a democracy out of islam, is not a real democracy because is incomplete but , to defend the vitality of an idea as we think is the best western democracy but, we must be ready to accept also to overcome an obstacle called Vatican, because is another ennemy of the democracy. For Benedetto XVI , last idea 2007, of the religion and freedom, has been to get new life for the old racist christians prayer to convert jews, Pro conversione Judaeorum. That is is another horrible example to prove that the democracy does not work good with the religion's interference, at the end with the 'help', of people like Benedetto XVI or Bush II, we can create just a poor imitation of the democracy. I think, we don't need to be communist to understand this.
