‘The US Can Forget about Democracy in Egypt’

JewishPress Logo

The United States should forget about trying to turn Egypt into a democratic country, according to retired IDF Major-General Amos Gilad, who served for years as senior adviser to the Defense Ministry.

Expectations of establishing Western-style democracy in Egypt or anywhere else in the Middle East are “an illusion,” he said last week at a gathering in Israel of  the Multinational Force and Observers (MFO), as reported by Defense News.

He added that, Mideast democracy is “four or five decades” away. “As an Israeli, I am for stability rather than for so-called democracy that brings in terrible forces like the Muslim Brotherhood. I realize this is not politically correct to say in the United States … but I think we need, together, to prefer stability,” he said.

    The world should forget about Democracy in any Muslim country. There is a contradiction between the democratic principle and the Koran. The Koran states that if you are not a Muslim then you don't have the rights of Muslims as a citizen!! SO MUCH FOR DEMOCRACY IN THE ISLAMIC WORLD.

  2. Earl W. Littlefield Jr says:

    Chaos & terrorist tyranny are Obama's only goals……

  3. Yechiel Baum says:

    was there democracy in the days of the pharohs? Egyptians do not understand democracy. It is missing from their genes.
