Pipes is darn right. It will take more to swing the Middle Eastern Muslim countries into democracy.

Religion must be practice in private. House of prayer cannot be allowed to be used to spread hate or demagoguery.
Secularism should be the norm. Secular systems must allow any religious practice.

All the monotheistic religions should practice introspection with the assistance of outsider (if need be) in order to clean-up what is not consistent with human rights as defined today.


That would be a step in the right direction for all of us.
