What does the Religion of Peace teach about... Democracy?

http://www.thereligionofpeace.com/Quran/021-democracy.htm

Quote:

Islamic law is absolutely incompatible with democracy.  It is a theocratic system with Allah alone at its head.  Allah's law is interpreted by a ruling body of clerics.  There is no room for a secular political system in which all people are treated as equals.

...

Quran (33:36) - "It is not fitting for a Believer, man or woman, when a matter has been decided by Allah and His Messenger to have any option about their decision."

...

Islamic law is based on the Qur'an and the Sunnah, which are set and fixed.  There is no need for addition or correction.  Neither is there any room for the law of fallible man (particularly non-Muslims).  Nor should it take the place of Allah's perfect law, which tells a man everything he needs to know about daily life (down to which hand he should "hold it in" while urinating).

...

Muhammad ruled on Allah's authority and did not submit his decisions to the will of the people.  Neither is there any tradition of democracy in the 1400 year history of Islam in the Middle East and Persia.
