Democracy and freedom are counter to the teachings of the Qur'an, which is why all muslims (even the "moderates") have a deep, visceral hate of the West. All the Middle East did was trade secular tyrants for religious tyrants in their never ending crusade for the Caliphate, which our tax dollars are helping to create. Since 9/11 we are literally using third parties to help us destroy ourselves economically, religiously and democratically, with the process being sped up by the muslim-in-chief.
Question. Who can name any muslim country that has been brought down in the so called "Arab Spring" that had an extremist religious leader? Answer, NONE, all were secular. Anyone seeing a pattern here?
