  •  Thats a big question (0+ / 0-)

    How would a Muslim country which elects the Quran as it's principle means of legislation treat its citizens, how would it choose to co-exist with its neighbors?

    That is a loaded question and there is no way for me to answer that question except by saying that I guess that all depends on the relationship that it has with its neighbors, which is a condition that exists for sovereign nations despite religious or secular affiliations.

    •  what about the first part of the question (0+ / 0-)

      how would a Muslim country treat its own citizens?

      •  I think what goes without saying... (0+ / 0-)

        is that you measure a country by how it treats lower classes. If the lower classes are treated with respect, fairly and with justice its safe to say that the upper classes are fine. Except if you are a Communist.

          what do you mean by THAT?  Is this an economic judgement?

          What about the treatment of women (who may or may not be wealthy)?

          What about the treatment of gays (who may or may not be wealthy)?

          What about the treatment of non-Muslims (who may or may not be wealthy)?

          I'm not specifically talking about a country's treatment only of its poor.

          Or, do you consider the population segments listed  above its "lower classes?"
