Why Islam?

Considering the record, when given the freedom to vote, it is no surprise people in the Arab and Islamic world would choose Islam and vote for the so called "Islamists".

(LONDON) - A question that begs an answer:

"When given the freedom to vote, why do people in the Middle East end up voting for the so called 'Islamists'?"

The toppled X-president Ben Ali of Tunisia -like his counterpart Husni Mubarak of Egypt, and the rest of tyrants of the Arab world- was a Secular, Liberal and Westernized DICTATOR.

This corrupt puppet was supported and admired by the Western governments, his anti-Islam policies were glorified and his “moderate version" of Islam was puffed up and endorsed.

Ben Ali has oppressed and terrorized his people for decades, he imprisoned them, starved them, closed down mosques, made it illegal for women to wear hijab, and for men to gather in mosques or to even grow beards.

This was one of Ben Ali palaces, after liberation, please watch to the end, even though it’s in Arabic:


In contrast, this is the "Palace" of the so called "Islamists", the Palestinian Prime-minister
Ismail Haneyeh, who has won a fair election in occupied Palestine
in 2006:

And here, the Prime-minister visiting some poor families in Gaza :

And here we see his brother, the "Islamist" elected Iranian President, Ahmedinijad
entertaining his guests and sharing a meal with them:

Is it any wonder then, that when given the freedom to vote, people in the Arab and Islamic
world would choose Islam and vote for the so called "Islamists"??

Nahida Izzat is a Jerusalem-born Palestinian refugee who has lived in exile for over forty two years, after being forced to leave her homeland at the tender age of seven in 1967, during the six-day war. She has a degree in mathematics, but art is one of her favorite pastimes. She loves hand-made things and so makes dolls, cards, and most of her own clothes. She also writes poetry, participates in written dialogues and believes in building bridges, not walls.

She started writing when her friends insisted she should write about her memories, experiences and feelings as a Palestinian.When she did it all came out sounding—she was told—like poetry! So she self-published two books: I Believe in Miracles and Palestine, The True Story.

Her dream is to return back home to a free and liberated Palestine.
