Your post is both unrealistic and naive. The Islamic world is the way it is because that is the way its inhabitants want it to be. When given the vote, the people of Egypt chosen candidates affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood, not ones with pro-western, secular and progressive values of the kind you might favor. The same held true in Iraq when there were elections there. America has no business being in the Middle East; we ought to cordon off the region and leave at the first opportunity. The less contact we have with that region, the better.
