No Evidence Islam Would be Compatible with Democracy


"It is not clear to me that Islam would be compatible with democracy," Jordan Peterson said in an interview with Hungarian newspaper Magyar Nemzet. "We have no evidence that it would be." He said he'd failed to observe a "positive example of a successful, independent Muslim democracy", also invoking Muslim countries' generally weak record on freedom and corruption in international rankings. "So, there is a fundamental problem that is unfortunately not allowed to be discussed," Jordan Peterson was quoted as saying.
