I share Mr. Ron Leshem pessimisim regarding the rise of political Islam in the Middle East. For decades all of the autoterian regimes of the region have done was to supress all political reforms, building reliable civil institutions and thus revealing to the naive masses how destructive religion, especially Islam would be if it grabs the power. Therefore we're witnessing a vast area struck by poverty, political ignorence and utopian wishhful thinking about how Islam would transform people's life once in power. I'm saying that because we Iranians did the same mistake more than three decades ago, and still are paying the horrible price! People of the Middle East beware of Isalm!
