Muslim intellectuals will go to no length to confuse the infidel. One such tactic to keep the infidel off balance is the constant comparison of Islam to democracy as if the two could coexist. But the Muslim intellectual always makes a semantic slip that shows the true nature of the misunderstanding between democracy and Islam.

“What is needed is a broadening of the concept of democracy and respect for other cultures and civilizations outside the narrow Western perspective,” said Rashwan, who is the director of the Comparative Politics Unit at the Al Ahram Center for Political and Strategic Studies and editor-in-chief of Directory of World Islamic Movements.

First, who is Rashwan?

Islam and democracy are not mutually exclusive concepts, argues Diaa Rashwan, an Egyptian specialist on Islamist ideology and the Muslim Brotherhood.

Catch that? The Muslim Brotherhood. The very same Brotherhood that’s currently going to great lengths promoting itself as a democratic movement in Islam – the very same organization that is pursing a plan to Islamatize the world.

Back to the first quote – “What is needed is a broadening of the concept of democracy and respect for other cultures and civilizations outside the narrow Western perspective.” Excuse me! Broaden the concept of democracy? The narrow Western perspective? What is this clown talking about?

The definition of a true democracy is very simple.

1- It a government of the people, by the people and for the people.

2- It is a secular government separated ruled by under the laws of man while at the some time protecting one’s practice of their beliefs.

3- It is a government that protects the basic freedoms of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

A government ‘broadened’ to include the concepts of Islamic laws which Rashwan is referring to is no democracy at all.

And the usual Islamic demand.

“There is genuine desire for democracy in Egypt and Egyptians are politically moderate by nature, so there is little danger of Islamic fanaticism taking hold. But this democracy will not come at the expense of our culture and traditions and that is something the West has to accept.”

And by cultural traditions he means the rule by Sharia Law and here’s why that’s antithetical to democracy.
