Hello Isaac,

How about the democratically elected Hamas government in Gaza? You support them as well? Israel doesn't accept it. How about elected Nazi party? Was it the success of democracy as well? Let's think about consequences of democracy. If one sheep jumps the cliff, all others will follow. So is it a good thing to let them jump if we have capability to stop? There is no justification for failure to avoid evil take hold on men.
