west double standard politics about ME events are good examples. They talk about the freedom in Libya but don't talk about freedom in Saudi Arabia, they talk about Syria but don't talk about Bahrain, they ... .
So when one of west politician talk about the human right in a country, we should know that they want to catch a benefit there and when they don't talk we should know they don't want to lose a benefit there. there are a lot of examples of this type. It is the worth you pride to it but in east it isn't.

Our politicians play it hard but they support freedom of speech, freedom of media, freedom of movement. They support a lot of poor countries. And they have to take our will into consideration or they lose power. Satellite broadcasts are not jammed. Twitter, facebook and youtube are freely accessible and the opposition politicians have no house arrest.
You will find a nice comparison about corruption here.
Talking about double standards, in the ME the articles written in Persian or Arabic do not always correspond with their English translation, especially in Palestine (thanks Google).
Islam wil go the same way as all other religions. Once their believers get more educated, the religion wil wane.

Religion is a pure thing politics is a dirty business these 2 just cant be mixed together or then the religion loses its purity that is what the Muslim brotherhood is doing.
To app up, if you look at Iran and at Egypt what an Iranian will do when he exits iran and what an Egyptian can do when he exits Egypt.
My uncle has dealt with a lot of Iranians and he tells me that the Iranians hate religion more than anything else because it was forced on them .
once Prophet Mohamed was asked if we had 2 to chose from to rule us
would we choose a strong leader who doesn't believe in god
, or a weak leader that believes in god.
he said a strong leader that doesn't believe in god because his religious views are for himself but his personality is what will rule .
there is nothing such as there is no democracy in Islam there is not democracy in extremist's view of Islam.
if you look at the views of the Azhar (the place where Muslims come to learn about Islam) is a great example of moderate Islam.

It took the west hundreds of years to get to its present position on democracy and countless civil wars. Now You just can't impose this on countries that have no real concept of this form of government. Democracy in most of these countries is stuff the ballot box and get power, then change the rules so that you can't lose any election. Whats the old saying Power corrupts and total power corrupts totally
