I have a counter question.
Do you think people in Colorado have short brown hair?
your answer to that is my answer about Muslims.
The Politics of Indonesia take place in a framework of a presidential representative democratic republic, whereby the President of Indonesia is both head of state and head of government, and of a multi-party system. Executive power is exercised by the government. Legislative power is vested in both the government and the two People's Representative Councils. The judiciary is independent of the executive and the legislature.
Indonesia has the largest muslim population in the world
A general election in June 1999 produced the first freely elected national, provincial and regional parliaments in over forty years. In October 1999 the MPR elected a compromise candidate, Abdurrahman Wahid, as Indonesia's fourth president, and Megawati Sukarnoputri — a daughter of Sukarno, the country's first president — as the vice-president. Megawati's PDI-P party had won the largest share of the vote (34%) in the general election, while Golkar, the dominant party during the Soeharto era, came in second (22%). Several other, mostly Islamic parties won shares large enough to be seated in the DPR. Further democratic elections took place in 2004 and 2009.
Since 2001, the government of Indonesia has co-operated with the US in cracking down on Islamic fundamentalism and terrorist groups.
Turkey is having some problems of late but they will have to work it out. Currently they are getting close to Russia in an effort to defeat Isis and extremists popping up in Turkey.
Turkey is a parliamentary representative democracy. Since its foundation as a republic in 1923, Turkey has developed a strong tradition of secularism. Turkey's constitution governs the legal framework of the country. It sets out the main principles of government and establishes Turkey as a unitary centralized state. The President of the Republic is the head of state and has a largely ceremonial role. The president is elected for a five-year term by direct elections and Tayyip Erdoğan is the first president elected by direct voting.
Voting for both sexes has been applied throughout Turkey since 1933, and every Turkish citizen who has turned 18 years of age has the right to vote. There are 550 members of parliament who are elected for a four-year term by a party-list proportional representation system from 85 electoral districts. The Constitutional Court can strip the public financing of political parties that it deems anti-secular or separatist, or ban their existence altogether. The electoral threshold is 10 percent of the votes.
Supporters of Atatürk's reforms are called Kemalists, as distinguished from Islamists, representing the two diverging views regarding the role of religion in legislation, education and public life. The Kemalist view supports a form of democracy with a laicist constitution and Westernised secular lifestyle, while maintaining the necessity of state intervention in the economy, education and other public services. Since the 1980s, issues such as income inequality and class distinction have given rise to Islamic populism, a movement that supports a larger role for religion in government policies, and in theory supports obligation to authority, communal solidarity and social justice; though what that entails in practice is often contested. Turkey under Tayyip Erdoğan and the AKP has been described as becoming increasingly authoritarian with the Council of Europe seeing Turkey drifting towards an autocracy due to their supported constitutional reforms, warning of a "dramatic regression of its democratic order". The newly proposed system, literally described as “a la Turca” presidency by the Turkish government, has little in common with presidential systems in the Western world. Many elements in the constitutional package increase concerns regarding democracy, separation of powers and checks and balances.

In America, all are equal before the law. In Islam that right is denied women.
If you are to defend Muslim female slaves, would you ask that that offended woman why she is offended by being considered only half as good as a man?
Tell us, should we be prejudicial against slavery?
I certainly am. Why aren't you?

When they are SLAVES.
Not ALL Muslim nations treat women the same. But, in MOST, women are definitely a Second, or even Third Class citizen.
I DO, most definitely share your concerns about the West's seemingly utter lack of concern. (Liberals in America are far, far, far more fixated on Slavery in the South, over a century ago, than they are over human trafficking of sex slaves, both outside AND inside our borders.)
But, if you have not noticed, the human species has largely the same concerns about actual GENOCIDE. At best, we wring our hands about it all.....UNTIL it shows up at OUR doorstep......
Some of them.
Nice deflection, though.
But, once again, a piss poor comparison, that is only relevant in the minds of deluded leftists.
I think, that it would probably be a wee bit easier for these women to "flee" than it is for one of the sex Slaves in Arabia. (Especially, those held by the likes of ISIS...)
Do you think they have 9-year olds getting gang-raped, by multiple "Warriors?"
And if one of the above ladies does "flee" the compound, do you think they are then executed?
