Reader comment on item: The Problem with Middle East Studies
in response to reader comment: Islam and democracy

That's the reason why Islamic nations refuse 'Democracy'. The tenets of Islam do not permit and accept Westernized democracy.

What the few Islamic nations have is a 'flimsy' democracy that does not stand up to Islamists. Instead, they will readily appease the Islamists with funds, just so that they get out of their way.

Dr. Pipes is very accurate in whatever he states. We in our comments don't stick to any politically correct lingo.
