Democracy and equality at the heart of Islamic revival
A few weeks ago, I had the honor of meeting with Egyptian President Mohammad Mursi at the Egyptian mission in New York at a gathering for community and intellectual leaders to talk about the future of U.S.-Egypt relations.

While many in the Arab and Muslim world are optimistic about Mursis election, there are many who are skeptical about Mursis promises of equality, and concerned that he might try to bring about an Islamic state.
Thats because "equality" and Islamic state" are incompatible.
The Dhimmi rules are evidence of that.

Dhimmitude is the Muslim system of controlling non-Muslim populations conquered through jihad. Specifically, it is the TAXING of non-Muslims.
Firstly I don't believe a Muslim country is presently or in the future capable of victory over another country.
Also because of the tribal nature of this religion and its adherents, there will always be infighting occuring.
Democracy cannot occur when freedom of speech is absent as it must be in an Islamic state.
Democracy cannot occur if women are excluded as they are not given equal rights in an Islamic state.
The idea of equality and Democracy existing in an Islamic state is ludicrous and as Joe said, incompatible.
For that matter any Religious State is not compatible with Freedom.
Fortunately in the West the Christian religion is only practised tokenistically although the Republicans in the US would have you think otherwise.
