There is a wide range of democratisation across the Middle East, a survey by a leading research and advisory firm has found.
The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) ranked 20 countries on 15 indicators of political and civil liberty.
The Index of Political Freedom lists Israel, Lebanon, Morocco, Iraq and the Palestinian Territories as the most democratic parts of the region.
Why did I bold the three nations of Lebanon, Iraq and Palestine? Their earthquake moves toward democracy are as the direct result of the Bush Doctrine.
Take that, “Democrat” Party of America!
