Islamist parties and movements in Arab countries have gained great political importance by making the strategic choice to participate in the legal political process and to acknowledge the legitimacy of the existing constitutional framework. Their political participation has given rise to two major concerns both in the Arab world and in the West. First, are these parties and movements truly committed to democracy? And, will participation itself strengthen their commitment to democratic norms and procedures? The experience of participating Islamist parties and movements in Morocco, Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Bahrain, and Yemen, as well as the armed parties in Lebanon and Palestine, reveals a complex picture.

Time for Pollitical Paradigm Shift from Secular State into Fair-Islamic States Abu Muhammad ADIS El-Merbawiy, MY
Dear honorable readers, It's not enough proof that the governance of Secularists and pro-western powers were corrupted already?. When Islamic Political Group gained in any election that provided by an established Muslim governments in entire Muslim countries according to western mode of elections, the establishments must plan for coup-de-tat. Meanwhile the problems of Muslim Nations never put into an end or couldn\'t be solved ever.!! Yet the establishment still has to have a \"denial culture\" or reluctant to consider their own failures. I proclaim to entire Muslim Arabs and non-Muslims, to establish a new Government among the pious and sober Muslims or Ministries to Govern the states in much more effective ways. Let\'s eliminate the corruptions, traitors in politics, misused the power for their own sake, put away the culture of bully from the previous regimes. Let\'s announce to the world that THE ISLAMIC WAY OF LIFE IN POLITICAL AND ADMINISTRATIVE will take a lead from now on. ALLAHU AKBAR, ALLAHU AKBAR..WA LILLAHI AL-HAMDU. THANKS YOU FOR SHARING. Dungun, MALAYSIA
