    Danite, Khalid is not used to democracy. Democracy would mean that some very solid principles may be affected. This gives insecurity and a possible collapse of ancient old tribal thinking. Or maybe not a collapse but an even more stronger form of tribalism. Was Israel always the main enemy of the tribe Palestinians, in a democracy it would be possible that within Palestinian society tribe would have to fight one another. That's scary of course and unwanted. Khalid doesn not seem to be an over-religious person, so the Quran does not seem tp play a role here, but in the minds of many others it does. That is also an obstancle for democracy, for women will have to be granted equal rights and family law might have to be reformed.
