The “Liberated” Women of Afghanistan

By Barbara H. Peterson

If the medieval situation of Afghan women, along with other women under fundamentalist Islam, which rules by Sharia law, is tolerated then what is to stop it spreading to our shores? We sit in our air-conditioned homes, thinking we are free, yet turn a blind eye to what is happening right under our noses. We believe the hype that the mainstream media, controlled by the White House, spews about Afghan women being liberated due to U.S. intervention, yet the reality is, THERE HAS BEEN NO LIBERATION! All the puppets in the White House care about is creating an excuse for their masters’ war machine, women’s rights be damned. Well, take a good hard look through the RAWA website at http://www.RAWA.org and see if you come away with the same perceptions you had before you went there. Here’s a bit about the organization:

RAWA, the Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan, was established in Kabul, Afghanistan, in 1977 as an independent political/social organization of Afghan women fighting for human rights and for social justice in Afghanistan.

This is not a distant organization calling the plays from a comfortable home in a western country. These women live in Afghanistan. They know what they are talking about. It is high time we listened and heeded their warning cry. This must not happen here. Think it can’t? If our puppet government can turn a blind eye to women’s suffering in other countries, what is to stop them from doing the same thing there if/when the time is ripe? Just how do you think the NWO scenario might play out? Think you are immune? Only the mega-rich masters calling the shots are. Keep this in mind as you read the following:  Continue reading

Kenyan-born Barack Hussein Obama has recently sent even more troops into Afghanistan, so things should be getting better, eh?

Here is the State Department’s official position on the plight of women in Afghanistan:

In late 2001, in the infancy of Operation Enduring Freedom, the U.S. war waged in Afghanistan, President George W. Bush signed into law the Afghan Women and Children Relief Act of 2001. This law authorized the president to allocate funds to organizations like UNICEF that promote human rights of women and children. (S. 1573) In a joint statement in early 2002, then-President George W. Bush and Chairman Hamid Karzai issued a joint statement, articulating their support for the cause of protecting women’s human rights in Afghanistan, and stated it was their pledge to “ensure women can gain the skills and education deprived them under years of Taliban mis-rule.” (Bush and Karzai) Continue reading

Legalized Violence Against Women in Afghanistan

Obama, speaking to reporters today after meeting with Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, said “President Karzai as well as the other candidates, I think, have shown that they have the interests of the Afghan people at heart.” (TPM Livewire)

Evidently, the Afghan people he is speaking about do not include women.  Continue reading
