Does Democracy Boulevard Lead to Islamism?

Pat Buchanan skriver:

The neoconservatives who dreamed up the Bush Doctrine — promoting “democracy” would be the U.S. mission in the Middle East — may be about to hold yet another “Seconds Thoughts” conference.

Certainly, Israel must be having second thoughts on the folly of having yielded to U.S. pressure and allowed Hamas to participate in elections. For Hamas, which is dedicated to the destruction of Israel and employs suicide-bomb attacks on civilians, has just won a sweeping political and moral victory in Palestine.

Freedom and democracy are on the march, says President Bush. Perhaps. But there is no doubt Islamism is on the march.
