Egyptian TV host Ibrahim Eissa said on his July 7, 2022 show on Al-Kahera Wal-Nas TV (Egypt) that the Western way is the only way to succeed, and there is no other way to success besides a democratic state. He said that only in democracies can you find just judiciaries, good education, advanced and innovative technology, science, and medicine. Eissa continued to say that Western countries have managed to pull themselves out of centuries of fighting among themselves, backwardness, and plagues because they "found the path of democracy and proceed on that path." For more about Ibrahim Eissa, see MEMRI TV clips Nos. 9082, 8621, 8568, 7852, 7295, 7172, 6767, 6530, 6416, and 5150.

Ibrahim Eissa: "In the 21st century, there is no way to move forward and succeed other than a democratic state. The Western way is the only way to succeed. As simple as that. You want to take the Chinese, the Persian, or the Latin way? Good luck with that. You want to go the Islamist way and build your empire? Good luck with that. That's it. I did what I had to, and delivered the message to the people. This is the only way.


"The countries that have just judiciaries are the Western countries. The Western countries. It's not even a question. Or rather, it is the democratic countries, because there are democratic countries that are not part of the Western world. Where can you find good education? In the democratic countries. Do you want an advanced society with technology, which offers the world scientific and medical inventions? You'll find it in the democratic countries.


"For many centuries, Western societies had also been fighting among themselves, and had suffered from terrible backwardness and plagues, but they managed to pull themselves out of this, because they found the path of democracy and proceeded on that path."
