We have previously discussed the inherent conflict between Islamic governments and free speech and free exercise. There is also a recognition among extremists that democracy itself is incapable with the dream of an Islamic caliphate. The head of the Tunisian Islamist Hizb ut-Tahrir movement made this point vividly clear in calling for all good Muslim to “bury” democracy.
Amri proclaimed that “Democracy no longer attracts anyone. It is time to announce its death and work to bury it.”
He no doubt is speaking for everyone who occupies his tiny extreme end of the political religious spectrum. The confusing thing is that democracy seems to be bursting out everywhere. No doubt those democracy loving people (including millions of Muslims) have not considered the paradise of living in a caliphate ruled by moronic extremists like Amri.
