    Turkey set an example for the world by the way it treats Kurds and previously Armenians. Tell me about the treatment of Kurds in any Arab country? Shiite Arab countries set examples by the way they treat Sunni's. Arab countries with Sunni majorities set an example for the world by the way they treat Shia Muslims. What examples do all Arab countries set by the way they treat non-Muslims? Please help me understand the examples being set by the Arab countries on freedom for minorities and by democratic rights. Now read that these great paragon's of freedom and democracy in this sea of pluralism want to tell the world how to behave toward minorities. I for one prefer not to follow their shinning example.I for one, prefer not to live in this sea or racism and apartheid. Let's focus on the larger issues. Netanyahu may be an issue, He only governs 1 million or so Muslims of the 1 billion Muslims in Muslim countries. Who are the great rulers who govern the 998, 999,999 Muslims which live in democratic, pluralistic states. Why is nobody writing about the examples they set for the world? Who is calling the kettle black? Let's isolate any and every state that is not democratic, that does not treat minorities with respect, that does not give minorities some rights. Let's isolate any state that does not require minorities some freedoms. Please submit your list of candidates?
