‘a true democracy embraces its dissenters.’
Paddy Ubuntu

The very point of democracy is to bring people from opposite ends of the political spectrum together. The complete train wreck of the current US election is a perfect example, 2 very polarised parties that are ultimately forced to work together. I sincerely doubt Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain and the UAE would even consider tolerating their political adversaries in government.The sectarian nature of islamic countries is plain to see and to even flirt with comparing islamic society with Christian society is simply ludicrous. Yes maybe 500 years ago but that itself proves my point
