    So let me see, if tomorrow the population of Iran rose and sent a third of the population into the street and continued to demonstrate until the army walked in and disposed of the mullahs and the elected president you would be in arms too? What if this happened in Gaza, where no elections were held since the one that brought Hamas to power- oh I see you crying already for the poor elected Hamas officials displaced from their rightful position GIVE ME A BREAK! Democracy is not only about being elected. It is also about governing democratically after you are elected, protecting minorities and listening to the almost 50% of the voter who rejected you. Not trying to take over the country and all governorships and other institution in order to promote your next election. It is about a peaceful transition of power and a strong opposition who is allowed to express its opinion, and even about the possibility of forcing a president to resign if he or she oversteps his boundary. It is about a system of checks and ballances, not one party taking over and dictating its will on everyone else once elected. I think you need some civil lessons before writing such a commentary.
