in response to reader comment: Woman President

Mr Soetero, approving of all things islamic writes:

" ........ I want to show the women in Islamic country are equal , even become head of state. USA itself as the icon of western democracy country until now never reach that ."

Why this fixation with the US? Is it related to the fixation with Israel? You should know that the US is one of many advanced Western democracies. If the people there want a woman president - they can vote one in. The fact that they haven't just says the right candidate has not yet come on the scene.

But let's talk about real achievements . A muslim country has never put a spacecraft on Mars, let alone the moon , let alone put something into orbit. What was the last breakthrough in any of the sciences that came from a Muslim country? Any technological or medical breakthroughs? Any positive human rights innovations?

May be in next 4 years, if they can change their mindset about women!! "

I hope they don't reach that sort of equality.
