This week…The Limits of Imposing Democracy…
What happens if you try to bring democracy in the Middle East and the people vote to destroy you? Shouldn’t the recent Palestinian election give us pause in Iraq? Can a democratic vote really lead to genocidal war? Ask the Germans who voted for Adolph Hitler in 1933….

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.

    Who says the War in Iraq is not winning in bringing democracy to the Arab world?

    Hamas is a terror group ( ) formed in 1987 to push for the eradication of Israel. An essential part of their ideology is that the Palestinian problem is religious, and therefore can never be solved by political compromise. They believe that the land “from the [Jordan] river to the sea” is consecrated to Islam. It cannot be given up, not even a part of it, especially not Jerusalem. Hamas is an offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood, the group of Arab fanatics that served as an arm of Nazi intelligence during WWII. ( ) Hamas now receives a majority of its funding from Iran, funneled through Hezbollah and other groups.
