The Myth

"There is a myth that though we love freedom, others don't; that our attachment to freedom is a product of our culture; that freedom, democracy, human rights, the rule of law are American values or Western values"

So sang Great Satan's coolest Uncle ever - the one and only Great Britain PM Tony "When in doubt - knock 'em out" Blair.

An article of faith among the faithless (that for decency's sake shall remain nameless) is essentially hot! sexyful fun and free choice are totally incompatible with certain elements in the world.

Specifically the seemingly illicit hook up betwixt M'Hammedism and tolerant, egalitarian secular 'democrazy'.

"From Pakistan to Palestine, the Middle East is beset by political and social turmoil that threatens to slide the entire region into the clutches of autocratic fanatics. And while American campaigns in Iraq and Afghanistan have revealed the staggering costs of remodeling societies from afar, the difficulty of these campaigns does not mean we must abandon the Middle East to a totalitarian fate."

Nation states like India and Malaysia inexplicably enjoy secular rowdy parlimentary deomcracy with more mohammedists than the rest of the world combined.

"If there is a fundamental incompatibility between Islam and democracy, 800 million muslims seem unaware of it."
