To Anonymous .... Women in the Arab world

In a democratic regime (unlike any one of those in the Arab world), anyone, including women, could be elected to be prime minister or president. The fact that women are not dominating these positions in the West is probably because they have chosen not to run the world and not to be worriers, because their life is good and that is what they want.

On contrary, in the Arab world, women are also militant, they want to join the war and rule by force. A good example is the female suicide bombers in the Middle East and Chechnya. But this is of course partially true, there is also the will of Islamic regimes to deceive their own people and the West, by showing everybody that women were freely elected in these countries.

It is common knowledge that in these countries there is no democracy and that women are treated very bad and if you anonymous or any other Muslim in this forum claim differently, well, you are trying to insult our intelligence.
