More on Islam and Democracy

In this International Herald Tribune op-ed, Egyptian presidential candidate Saad Eddin Ibrahim makes a case for Islamist democracies, specifically in the Mid-East. Money graph:
"Bush and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice have hinted recently that the United States would accept the outcome of any fair and free elections, even if it brings Islamists to power. That hint should be explicated in a clear doctrine.

A government open to all and serving all is our best weapon against both autocracy and theocracy."
And terrorism. Word.
