I don't know from which planet Stoopid American comes from, but Stalin, Hitler, Mao, Saddam and I can go on and on, were not religious fundamentalists and yet behold they were the most despicable totalitarians in history. The fact that muslim fundamentalists are anti democracy is for certain. I would add to that Left wing Israelis who think freedom of expression is a right only for those who think like them. To send goons in the middle of the nignt to bulldoze homes of those whose views they disparage - that's democracy. To ban political parties whose views they don't share - that's democracy. To say the law should be obeyed when it suits their needs, that is also demcoracy. But when they don't like the law it becomes immoral and should be disobeyed. To require a soldier to serve where ordered - that's OK only if the soldier is evicting Jews, but it is OK to disobe an order not to serve in the West Bank. This leftist hypocrisy is what is endangering Israeli democracy (along with the evergrowing arab population).
