“Democracy” in the Middle East means the ascendancy of the Muslim Brotherhood and Sharia law, which, in turn, means the demise of democracy. The big wheel turns. It’s funny, if you’re not a Christian (or any other religion than Muslim) or a woman or anyone else who longs to be free.
Just one more unintended consequence of Obama’s ill-conceived foreign policies.
Arab regimes not overthrown by the “Arab Spring” are under mounting international pressure; these include the secular Assad regime of Syria, where Christians, who comprise some 10% of the population, are fearful of the future, having seen the effects of democracy in neighboring nations such as Iraq, where, since the fall of the Saddam regime, Christians have been all but decimated.
