Arabs & US Democracy

”The war to ‘democratise’ Iraq was the most valuable gift the American administration has ever given the dictator regimes in the Arab world. It is a practical example of what democracy means as seen by the Americans. Arab nations see the war in Iraq as an exercise to secure oil supplies from the region and to destroy an Arab country for the best interests of Israel.”

Bourhan Ghalioun, Director of the Centre for Contemporary Oriental Studies at the Sorbonne University.
