Islamists Are Worse than Dictators
Daniel Pipes, Washington Times
Who is worse, President Mohammed Morsi, the elected Islamist seeking to apply Islamic law in Egypt, or former President Hosni Mubarak, the dictator ousted for trying to start a dynasty? More broadly, will a liberal, democratic order be more likely to emerge under Islamist ideologues who prevail through the ballot box or under greedy dictators with no particular agenda beyond their own survival and power? Mr. Morsi’s recent actions provide an answer, establishing that Islamists are worse than dictators.
