The Magical Solution

We heard it many times that you give Middle Eastern countries ballots and miracles of democracy will flourish everywhere. Riiiiiight.

Iran used this magical tool in its last elections. The result was another psychopath running the show in Iran. You all heard his speeches about the myth of the Holocaust. Today, we have another show of democracy from Iran. The Associated Press reports:

TEHRAN, Iran - George Michael, Eric Clapton and Kenny G. will no longer be heard on Iranian airwaves after hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad issued a decree banning Western music from the country's radio and TV stations.
[...]
"Blocking indecent and Western music from the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting is required," according to a statement on the council's official Web site.
[...]
Songs such as George Michael's "Careless Whisper," Eric Clapton's "Rush" and "Hotel California" by the Eagles regularly accompany Iranian TV and programs, as do tunes by saxophonist Kenny G.

Welcome to hell where listening to Kenny G.is considered a sin.

Egypt used this magical tool and the results were just wonderful with the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood's star into power. The Daily Star reports:

The November 9-December 9 parliamentary elections were to have been the pinnacle of a year during which political reform and democratization overwhelmingly topped the nation's agenda and dominated public discourse. They have proven anti-climactic to say the least. In terms of violence, thuggery, chaotic and manipulated voter lists, police repression, intervention and coercion by state bodies, flagrant vote buying and vote rigging, this year's poll rivals the worst elections the nation has seen since the uniquely free parliamentary poll of 1976. And while ballot-stuffing has been rendered more difficult in general as a result of judicial supervision, there have been numerous well-documented instances of the most barefaced rigging of results, on occasion with judicial complicity, and more often in flagrant disregard for the judiciary, including threats of violence and actual physical attacks on judges
[...]
Moreover, results of the 2005 poll underline the conclusion that the Egyptian political system is in deep crisis. For the first time in Egyptian parliamentary history, the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood won 88 seats in the People's Assembly, accounting for 20 percent of a total of 432 races concluded so far (polling has been postponed by judicial order in six constituencies, accounting for the remaining 12 elected seats; President Hosni Mubarak has appointed another 10)....

Could you imagine how many more seats they would have won if the elections went smoothly?

And who is happy with these results?

An Iranian daily welcomed on Monday the victory of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt's parliamentary elections, stressing that it pointed to the fact that "Islam still plays a positive and key role in the country."
[...]
"The new attitude of the Egyptian people toward the Islamic parties indicates that the Egyptian nation is reviewing its attitudes and gradually abandoning Arab nationalism and turning to political Islam," said the daily.

My advise to the liberal Egyptians is to stop listening to Nancy Ajram and Amr Diab. It's never too late to start practicing your future way of life.



I'm here to scare you.

You all remember Al-Sadr. Who can forget this brilliant liberal Iraqi politician. Well, you need to get used to this face. He's a major winner in the major democratic elections that took place in Iraq last week. He's so cute.

Let me guess who is happy with the results of the Iraqi elections? Iran!!!

Don't say I didn't predict all this way back in September.

Is it too late to save Iraq? Akba has the answer.
