Here is radical Muslim democracy in action: Hassan Nasrallah, the FDR of Hizballah, has won a fourth term. He has held office since 1982, rivalling another paragon of radical Muslim democracy, the PA’s Arafat, who has reigned over first the PLO and now the PA for decades. With models like these, the success of democracy in Iraq is assured.
Note also the piquant contrast of the last two paragraphs.
From UPI, with thanks to Teri:
A Hezbollah statement said the group ended its seventh national congress by re-electing all the members of its Shura council whose members unanimously chose Nasarallah, 44.
Nasrallah was elected for the first time in 1982 as the head of the group blamed for the kidnapping of foreigners during Lebanon’s 1975-1990 civil strife….
Hezbollah is represented in the Lebanese parliament by nine legislators.
The party figures on a U.S. list of terrorist organizations with global reach.
