Aw, loads of thanks Sis Heb ..    I'm sure this is gonna be a perfect substitute for the piece you lost Sis Zaynab Smiley    And br.TS, your feedback on that peculiar Islamophobe was once again an eye-opener on how fast the IQ of our enemies is falling.  The skeptic website isn't even able to distinguish the vast difference between Monotheism and earthly democracy, and such are the folks are supposed to be the critics of Islam.

Political science being my major at university, this one was of particular interest to me.  I totally concur that when we uphold the Quran as the Institution that launched the concept of democracy, we do not allude to the distortions that frill this ideology today as maneuvered by the Western system where it's primarily used as a tool for manipulation, convenience, instigation of hype, indoctrination, incitement and fitnah.  Additionally, today's "democracy" in the non-Muslim world largely includes the spread of Islamophobia as one of its specific goals.  Since there exists a very thin line between free speech and hate speech, thus genuine democracy needs to have boundaries.  This implies that it needs to be utilized only from a constructive perspective.  Criticism must be constructive, not destructive.  Likewise, productive freedom of thoughts must be presented with respect, not in a disparaging or pooh-pooh manner. 

In my opinion, the culture and practice of free speech is not suited for the media which has turned into the most forceful weapon to inculcate the masses in the modern world.  Instead, only the people and the counsels (who vote or represent the voters in a parliament or its equivalent) must be granted such freedom to be used with respect and all seriousness, to speak on governmental policies - both its shortcomings as well as its achievements - and its impact on the society.  This will establish a steady flow of interaction between the government and the masses with productive and valuable assessments coming from both sides.  It must never be viewed as a pathway to create hostilities or trading diatribes.  That would be the surest way of corrupting the culture of free speech into a stimulus for counter-productive results and subsequently the society shifting from civilization to retrogression as is happening North America and Europe (aka West).

A question I would like to put here because I don't understand how historians claim that - why are the ancient Greek rulers dubbed as the supposed pioneers of democracy?  Weren't they largely an autocratic lot?
