I wish people would wake up and realize that monotheistic religions are not compatible with democracy. They never were, and they never will be. democracy means putting the authority in the hands of men, but monotheistic religions like Christianity and Judaism rule from religious authority governed through monarchs that are established by God( what many are brainwashed to believe is synonymous with dictatorship) It doesn\'t matter if some people in the middle east want democracy. It\'s not compatible with Islam. But the truth of the matter is that people from middle eastern culture do not want democracy, their way of life is totally agianst it and is not compatible. That\'s why there has been so much delay in setting up a government in Iraq, because the people there don\'t want a democracy, and as soon as the u.s leaves it will fall apart and turn into a falsley democratic velied dictatorship. They do not compromise when it comes to morality, niether do Christians (what the bible teaches that is), but Islam teaches to defend and conquer for it\'s religious truth at whatever cost.True Christianity teaches that there is a war going on but we are called to peace and reconciliation until the final judgement by God. If you understand Abrahamic religions then you understand that a whole nation is responsible together. They don\'t have the same values here in a democracy, where if you don\'t vote then you\'re not responsible for your countries actions which you support and are a part of(which is fallacious). There are combating ideaolgies that are at work here, and they both demand global supremacy. That means democracy too. Democracy demands that the world is compatible with democracy, and the u.n. has been set up for that very purpose to dictate and enforce global supremacy just like Islam. So don\'t say democracy is so different. If you go after Islam, the only thing you can do is genocide, because you cannot overcome it by trying to shove Islam into a democratic mold, as many people have pointed out. And furthermore, how would you like your ideas and believes to be wiped off the earth through the power of a strong armed government. But if you beleive in evolution and we need to save ourselfs now , or you can find some desperate need for ethnic cleansing than I suppose genocide might seem reasonable to you just as it has to others in the past.
