You can't force democracy on uneducated, unsophisticated people who have no idea what it means. When you do, you get hamas winning the election and then tryig, by force, to take over every element of the territory. If there were "democratic" elections in Saudi Arabia, the most militant, fanatical elements would win. Elections in Gaza, Lebanon and Iraq have not guaranteed peace.
