in response to reader comment: The Muslim conflicts

The senator of California is a woman, the former CEO of HP was a woman, the Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice is a woman. There is an extensive list actually, but it's hard to keep track. As far as the Presidency goes, it's true that there has never been a woman, but that is hardly necessary to be in power. Women in the Supreme Court has a lot of power too. India is hardly a Muslim majority, so I don't know why you included that in your statement. Hinduism accepts other faiths more readily, so a female leader in India is hardly a reflection of the Muslim faith. If you include all Muslim countries in your list, why not include other Christian nations leader as well? What about the chancellor of Germany, that is a woman. If you include past women of power, like Muhammad's wife, why not include Queen Elizabeth?

I agree that abuses are a world problem, but your statements are too biased to tell others to make corrections. The point I'm making is that the Qur'an is not disrespecting to women or oppressive to women, but the point is that women are being oppressived in many Muslim nations now, and if you don't ackowledge that, nothing will ever change. It is not the fault of the Qur'an, but the fault of the militants who took over. You cannot ignore the problem by naming some female leaders in a nation that is not Muslim, and a nation that was the first in the nation of Islam to have a female leader. There are more than one Muslim nation, and the problem mostly can be pointed at the Middle Eastern Muslim nations.
