The Israelites were under a Monarchy since King Soloman.
Democracy has some elements of the ten Commandments and many of the Jewish Laws in the Torah. Compare the Jewish laws to the fundamenetal principles of Democracy for more info on your homework, mate.
Good luck =)
Judaism introduced to the world many basic concepts of justice. Among these are the principles that murder, theft, adultery and slander are crimes, that no matter who commits a crime, the punishment should be the same, and that every life is equally valuable.
