"Islam is the Solution"; a Familiar Slogan
A phrase I referred to in my recent post on political and power duopolies,: "Islam is the solution" is something that has come up in the news pretty often recently. It is the slogan you heard from the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt during the recent elections that gave them an enhanced presence, and it is what you heard from Hamas supporters in Palestine during their recent elections. It is also a phrase--and quite literally--a bumper sticker familiar to the likes of me from our campus days in Pakistan. I'd really like to discuss it and the political ideology that goes with it. I will try to post stuff about that, but in the meantime, if any readers have comments, etc. about the issue--or experiences of their own--please post them as comments here and let's start a discussion?
