"Muslims and Democracy" is a short study dealing with the reality we must face in trying to spread democracy into an ancient culture that believes democracy is evil. The problems we face in the Middle East have sprung from their deep festering belief that no people of a differing religion should have any permanent military presence on Muslim land. It is evident from their religious writings and the ranting of those we may call radicals, that this concept has existed for centuries. Astonishingly we find that oil money is now paying for the training of thousands of boys to enter the battle, and oil money is paying for the defense against the trained. If we truly want to find a way to stop the madness we must develop a dialog with the most prestigious Muslim religious leaders and secular officials. Liberty worldwide is being reduced more and more toward violence. Richard S. Leeper was born in Tennessee in 1932. He began his Higher Education studies in David Lipscomb University. He continued his studies in science and Bible Studies to receive an MS Degree in Technical Science and a PhD in Bible Studies. He lives in Florida with his wife of 56 years. Events led him to a comprehensive study of Islam and Christianity and how it is possible to reduce the tension between them. He has served in politics, business, education and religion and remains optimistic about all these. Mr. Leeper has been a teacher in science and religion and believes that the correct interpretation of both, adds to the strength of each. There will always be different interpretations of our relation to God but it is our duty by mediation to keep the differences from reaching a violence that mandates death in the name of God.
