USA Getting Muslim President?

Reader comment on item: Barack Obama's Muslim Childhood

I read this article again and again but I could not find the boldness with which Daniel writes such issues. The reasons might be obvious because future remains imperfect. And at last we all are human and can not go beyond some distance. But Daniel must continue doing his great job for the freedom of expression and availability of information. A Great JOB!

Americans need to be very cautious and should not commit the mistakes like Indians have been committing after independence. We in India, to propagate secularism, have put Muslims as President, Vice President, and Prime Minister and so on. This is my personal observation that Muslims are a conservative ruler and mostly love to live in medieval era. They can not talk progress, they can not tolerate progress, and they are the people who will take society back to the history(if get opportunity).

And that is what is happening to all Muslims ruled states including Pakistan. Muslims have so much animosity that they can not talk constructive ideas. They always think of destruction.

Amidst these situations, Obama is talking about change we believe in. Till now he has been able to convince many Americans but are Americans asking about these changes? What is the change Obama believes in? Will he try to take USA to medieval era in eight years?

I have doubts that if Obama become President, he will not take USA to Iran ways. Is this change Obama talking about? Americans must think about it.

USA is an example of democracy to this world. This democracy should not cheat humanity.

I personally feel that if Obama wins, he may have very different direction for entire world which may not be very good for human beings.

Rest, Americans are wise people and they have to take wise decisions.
