Islam is the Solution. --Not!

Good material here on the poor record of the Islamists in relation to governing:
In Egypt, as well as in Tunis and Morocco, Islamists haven't fulfilled their longstanding pledge of prosperity and renaissance (Nahda). They, so far, have failed in fighting corruption, fixing the ailing economies, respecting human and minorities' rights, and advancing democratic agendas. And the more they fail, the less their credibility and image can be restored. Not surprisingly, many Arab people still take to the streets to express their frustration and disenchantment with Islamists' policies. For many of them, Islamists' ideology can't resolve their problems. Nor can it provide the salvation they aspired to after the many cases of immorality and incompetency. 
Love it. Islam is the solution! We heard for decades. Thank you Brother Morsi, but now we need solutions that are solutions. But yeah, dig out your Sahiih Bukhari and Muslim and Tirmidi and so on and tell us what Allah says about moving from a subsidy economy with a nepotistic, corrupt, intolerant government to a prosperous, just state. Oh yeah, and what does Allah have to say about feeding an overpopulated country with a tanking economy that is completely unable to produce enough food for its population?

Islam is the solution indeed.

You can have:

1. Islam
2. Vibrant democratic political society
3. Prosperity

Pick any two.

Mr. Daood

I read the article, but I did not see any solid reference to Islam not being the solution.
It critizes the government who dont live up their promises.

For example (emphasis mine)

"""""""""
However, the most noticeable investment of Islamists lies in their "sacred" promise: establishing the "Islamic state." After two years in power, SUCH A STATE HAS PROVEN TO BE NOTHING BUT A MERE "MIRAGE" ISLAMISTS' POLICIES DID NOT FACILITATE A BIG DIFFERENCE FROM THEIR OLD REGIMES NOR HAS THEIR THEIR IDEOLOOGY PRESERVED ITS PURITY AND SANCTITY. ISLAMISTS' BEHAVIOR HAS SHOWN THAT THEY LIKE OTHER HUMAN BEINGS, ARE PRONE TO MAKE MISTAKES AND COMMIT SINS
"""""""""


Phillip Giraldi confirms


"""""There are more than 50 predominantly Muslim countries in the world, and, while most have elements of Shariah in their civil and family law, ONLY TWO HAVE IT IN THEIR CRIMINAL CODES....

The countries that do not have Shariah as their criminal codes HAVE MODELED THEIR LAWS ON EUROPEAN AND AMERICAN MODELS, some borrowing from Roman law and others from British common law.""""

Also take what
""""""""""""
Most Scholars attribute the low Saudi Arabian crime rate mainly to the strong influence of Islam in various spheres of life in Saudi society, particularly to the implementation of Shariah.
