True Muslims Cannot Be Democratic

Reader comment on item: Trump: You Should Ban Islamists, Not Muslims
in response to reader comment: Experimental Pro-Democracy approach

True muslims cannot be democratic because islam is inherently SEDITION against ALL sovereign national countries (which it regards as only temporary man-made false idols, to be eventually destroyed and replaced by the global muslim Ummah, ruled by their theocratic Caliphate government - Sura 18:26).

And it is seditious because muslims are taught to believe that the Qur'an and its subsequent sharia elaborations embody "god's" perfect laws which are to apply to all mankind everywhere, so why would anyone ever need any merely human legislators (even 'democratically elected' ones)?!

To muslims, man-made laws are either compatible with the Qur'an and sharia, (in which case they are superfluous,) or they are not (in which case they are illegal).
