Egypt is the canary in the gold mine

Reader comment on item: Why Egypt Will Not Soon Become Democratic

Submitted by Stas (Ukraine), Jan 20, 2013 at 04:37

While the western world bows at the altar of democracy and democratic elections, they continue to ignore that the will of the people, or the false appearance of democratic elections, is more of a problem than a solution. If Egypt continues along the lines it is going, they will turn into a totalitarian Islamic regime. Oh, I guess that would be convenient would it not? A Sunni Islamic regime to stand against the reigning Shia regime,

Perhaps that would not be such a bad thing after all.

But what is sure is that the more Islamic Egypt becomes, the more inspired other Muslim countries will be to follow suit. The age of the secular despots is making way for the age of Islamic totalitariansm.
