If there is a "peaceful" interpretation, how do we make it not just the majority opinion, but have it enforced internally by Muslim nations? We have pushed democratically structured governments across the world as the system of government that gives the most freedom and protects the rights of the individual. But that creates a problem in the ME. The people are tribal. Power and control is concentrated in the heads of the families and the tribes. Since these positions are not voted on and arrived at democratically, voting for a candidate or a law undermines the traditional power structure. We found that out. Unless you destroy the culture and the tribal structure, you can't turn them into working democracies.
