Islamic Electoral Victories and the People's Choice

In the editorial, the author refers to Islamic rule and the Islamic fundamentalist free vote as "dark age." I would like to correct this.

During the same time as the Dark Ages in Europe and the Western world, we had the golden age of our civilization as Muslims. Only when Muslim fundamentalist rule, Muslim laws, and Muslim morals were the guiding force of our society did our society flourish and achieve its peak civilization. It is unfortunate that our standard of living has decreased since then, our freedom reduced, and our countries fragmented.

Hence, we look forward to fundamentalist election victory throughout Muslim countries to again make our religion the guiding source and inspiration of the society, and return to our golden age. Taha Hamoui, Lancaster, Calif.
