Secularism and Islam
Do you all believe a secular democracy is the only solution or possibility of success for countries such as Iraq and Iran? If so, do you feel this solution guts the core beliefs of Islam? What are some other possibilities for government that allows for their belief system?
Also, why have the Islamic nations so fallen behind Western culture militarily and economically(aside from petroleum)?
Would the allowance of Islamic nations to strengthen militarily without western bases on their soil be a viable possibility?
Is it fair to allow Israel nuclear weaponry at the same time stomping the developement of nuclear weapons by nations such as Iran?

Secular Democracy is against Islam, an Islamic Democracy can be Islamic.
I personally would like to see a nation run just like the Ottoman Turkish Empire.

Western influence....especially in the realm of "womens rights" will be difficult to coexist with. I can see a big push by women's groups in the US to interfere with any Islamic based government. What is your solution?
Would an Islamic based government be able to tolerate non-conformity with all Islamic customs based on level of beliefs?? The Ottoman Turks co-existed with other beliefs??...true
