Where is Freedom of Human Spirit to be Found if Not Being Protected at Its Base Source - Does Arabic Source Protect Oriental or Occidental Freedoms?

Reader comment on item: How Muslims Can Catch Up
in response to reader comment: Misunderstanding Why Arabic Does not Have Preeminence in World Religious Meditations

Looking closer at Dr.Pipes' contention that Islam suffers from the same admixture issues that religion and government cannot be intermingled when the attempt is made on merely human terms, much like that alleged in the American conversation of separation of church and state, a quite badly misinterpreted application of secularist interference in American Constitutional law. By remembering that American law ran counter to all previous attempts to source democratic ancient principles for replacement of autocratic forms of governance does one begin to understand, even appreciate, the Divinely held principles that were formed in America and left all other approaches wanting in envy of how it was supposed to work. Today, that truth is not only lost on the socialistic secularist elitists' war on global societies, but the lawlessness world-wide is evidence that America's current government is no longer pressing for freedom either.
This is why some will still refer to the Quran as a replacement of the 'Western' methodologies of gpvernance since fewer are willing to protect the American form of governance and humanity will be left trying to choose an acceptable replacement. Biblically based precepts are then losing favor since fewer understand them, choosing instead anything, such as adherence to Islam (not necessarily in Arabic), for the lack of not seeking truth. Which will provde survival of the species, oriental or occidental methodologies when neither appear to guarantee freedom and comfort of the spirit?
