Islamic Fundamentalists Don't Like Democracies Either

We all know that Christian fundamentalists here in America don't like our democracy, but the Islamic fundamentalists are a bit more vocal about it. Yesterday in Kabul, there was an anti-democracy rally during which signs like the one here were raised. Reuters reports:

Protesters, claiming foreign forces had burned a copy of Islam’s holiest book during a raid in Maidan Wardak province last week, blocked traffic in Kabul for more than an hour. A spokeswoman for U.S. and NATO-led forces in Afghanistan said none of their troops were involved in the incident and blamed the Taliban for spreading a false rumor that a copy of the Koran had been burned.

Thick plumes of smoke rose above the crowd as protesters set fire to a large effigy of what they said was U.S. President Barack Obama. “Death to America. Down with Israel,” chanted one man at the rally, which was organized mainly by university students. Others threw stones and clashed with police but no casualties were reported.

“No to democracy. We want just Islam,” said one banner carried by protesters, many of whom shook their fists in the air.

No democracy- just like the Christian fundamentalists working a bit more secretly within this nation of ours. Just in case there are new visitors to this blog and are confused about anti-democratic American fundamentalist Christians, think 'denial of civil rights guaranteed in the U.S. Constitution.' Some fundamentalist Christians here wish to supplant the laws of the Constitution with Mosaic Law. Read my post from Sunday.

The truly sad irony about the fundamentalist movement both here and in Afghanistan is that we Americans just lost another 14 of our military men and women today while fighting the fundamentalist Taliban in Afghanistan.

Dangerous people, fundamentalists. Very dangerous to a democracy.
