Sharia law in Egypt if a majority 'allows it'

As I said: one man, one vote, one time:

Zeinab Badawi, one of Al BeBeeCeera’s resident Muslims, interviews Kamal El-Helbawy, former Muslim Brotherhood headbanger in chief from Egypt. As usual, she tries to avoid the serious stuff to not alarm the infidels. According to her (and his logic) if a majority wants a clerical dictatorship, barbarity and jihad its all cool:

In the current turmoil in Egypt, one of the oldest and biggest opposition parties, the Muslim Brotherhood, has kept a low profile.
Banned in the past, it is now keen to play a greater political role in a post-Mubarak Egypt.
HARDtalk’s Zeinab Badawi speaks to Kamal El-Helbawy, a member and former spokesman of the Muslim Brotherhood, about whether the party will attempt to implement Islamic law in Egypt.

Here’s the more annoying BBC interrupter Stephen Sackur with Mortimer Zuckerman, a US billionaire and influential member of the American Jewish community.

One thought on “Sharia law in Egypt if a majority 'allows it'”

  1. Most of us who understand democracy know that it can be as tyrannical as any fascist or communist regime. The tyranny and cruelty of the majority is a real thing, and in a Western political community, these problems are addressed and solved by the legal and political system.
    In Islam, there is a primitive, unschooled, and ahistorical perspective on democracy. Even if Muslims become “democratic” they will only impose a tyranny of the majority. And if they become “republics”, rest assured that the community for which the republic is made is composed only of Muslims.
    These are both idiotic mockeries of Western democracy & republican ideology.
