(Ahlul Bayt News Agency) – The unrest that has shaken the Arab world over the past six months and ousted two of the region’s autocratic leaders shows that Islam is compatible with democracy, Italy’s prime minister Silvio Berlusconi told said on Friday.
“The principle has been established that democracy is not only compatible with western countries and their civilisations, and I believe this is very important,” Berlusconi told journalists at the Group of Eight summit in Deauville, France.
The stirrings of democracy seen in the popular revolts that have taken place in Tunisia, Egypt, Yemen and other Arab countries are the latest in an “extraordinary period of history” that has unfolded over the past 25 years, he said.
“Who could have predicted the fall of Soviet Communism and the end of Apartheid in South Africa and the Arab people’s decision to march towards democracy?” Berlusconi stated….
In fact, as we have abundantly documented here, they’re marching toward Sharia and Islamic supremacism. But no one cares. What could go wrong?
