Not for one or two more generations, at least. First the Islamic fundamentalists must prove that they cannot run these countries, they must fail in power. Then there will be a chance for an alternative. Remember, the politics are almost like Europe in the Late Middle Ages. Europe had one advantage: it did not have tribalism by that time. It already had the beginnings of nation states.
Who knows, maybe after the fundamentalists fail....back to the monarchs and militarists. Or maybe some kind of democratic system.
