Laroui suggested during the interview that it was possible for a religious state and a civil state to co-exist. Laroui is quoted as saying: "The current Arab and international situation means that we have to ask ourselves a delicate question, which, even just a short time ago, would have seemed exagerrated, namely the question of democracy and theocracy or, to use a more Islamic turn of phrase, the question of a just Sharia state".

The compatibility of democracy and theocracy Laroui answers the question as to whether two such contradictory concepts as democracy and theocracy can be compatible, as follows: "Political scientists engage with this concept, at least indirectly, but analysts prefer not to touch it at all, because they think it incompatible with the insights of modern scholarship.

But today it emerges that this kind of co-existence is possible. This new problem arises out of the failure of communism and capitalist globalisation.

He already laid out these thoughts with reference to Morocco in , in an interview with the Moroccan magazine "Zaman". Freedom as an essential feature of liberalism: Abdallah Laroui is among the most significant thinkers of the Arab world On that occasion, he spoke about his idea of a "genuine constitutional monarchy, which protects modernity and combats conservative powers", in which the king, in his role as "ruler of the faithful" as the Moroccan constitution has it, is the custodian of religious affairs.

For the author of the book "Contemporary Arab Ideology" , "only the king is in a position to rule on religious questions.

Or, as Laroui explains, "are possibly present at one time, but are then gone again, causing a democracy to be transformed into a destructive demagogy, as many great theorists have suggested. Anyone who says that the people are the single and eternal sovereign should not be surprised by the fact that this gives rise to populism, when the majority is passive and has grown used to supplication.

Absence of debate on the big questions Nevertheless, little attention has been paid to the fact that a well-known critical, rationalist Arab thinker is defending theocracy.

This is evidence of the fact that no debate is taking place on the fundamental issues of societies whose elites are out of touch, and where thinking has become fixed in formulas and reifications.

Bibliographic Information

As we know, theocracy as a form of government takes its legitimation from religious texts. It came to an end in Europe with the Enlightenment and, therefore, had correspondingly negative associations for the Enlightenment's great pioneers. In addition to this, the concept of the "just Sharia state" has never existed in Islamic history.

The legitimacy of the traditional Islamic state was always dependent on the extent to which that state applied religious law.All that hinders scientific rationalism the logic of experience and induction through resorting to superstition in our daily live, in all our movements and stand still, in our eating, dresses, curing, in what we read and see, hinders modernization.

We analyze those concepts and discuss it not only to reach a clear understanding and definite meaning of it, but also because we belief that the success of the Arabic development is constrained by this clearness and that definition. I do this while I am full conscious with the hardships related to this procedure, however, I claim that there is no other procedure for the reason mentioned before.

The other side of the methodology of professor Laroui is a 'Foundational' one. Leiden, NY: E. However, I claim that this is the case any way, whether the concept complete or not, and that the concept used here is imposed upon us as a result of our commitment to contemporary humanity.
