Most Honest World Leader: Australia's John Howard

Always searching far and wide for the world’s most impressive leaders, the Neocon keeps coming back to conservative John Howard of Australia. Entering his 10th year in office, reelected time and again, sometimes controversial but widely respected for his straight talk and clear thinking.

Howard’s latest remarks have caused a stir in Australia: “…a commitment to jihad and extreme attitudes towards women are two problems unique to Muslims that previous intakes of migrants from Europe did not have….We want people when they come to Australia to adopt Australian ways, we don't ask them to forget the countries of their birth, we respect all religious points of views and people are entitled to practise them but there are certainly things that are not part of the Australian mainstream. There is within some sections of the Islamic community an attitude towards women which is out of line with mainstream Australian society It needs to be dealt with by the broader community, including Islamic Australia. There is really not much point in pretending it doesn't exist." Bravo
