Comments: After reading quite a few entries in the RAWA guest book, it seems that there are a few issues that are misunderstood. No one here is trying to degrade Islam. What they are trying to do is reject the Taliban's interpretation of Sharia, which enables women in Afghanistan to go on being brutalized and murdered with little or no intervention by the government. Also, to the comment entitled "Real muslim woman", regardless of what kind of muslim you are, a person is entitled to basic human rights and the opportunity to pursue happiness. To reject this organizations efforts because they work to discourage The Taliban is simply asinine. We need to reject the kind of ignorance and cowardice that suggests that atrocity has justification.

Comments: I think your web page sucks. In islam hitting of the women is allowed. I think it is people like u who runed afghanistan. What do guys want? to make your wives,dughters and sisters walk around naked? The pictures of women u have given in all these sights are not wearing scarf. It is imprtent in islam to cover your hair. If the person who made this page is none muslim, just stay out of our business.

Comments: Peace & Blessings upon you

First of all allow me to inform you that you are harming Islam not Taliban, when you keep using the word fundamentalist. You know very well that this word is used by western media to defame Islam.

A fundamentalist is a person who uses the base of something, so a muslim fundamentalist uses the Quran as guidance. You know very well that Taliban does not use the Quran as guidance, they claim they do but we know they don't, there's a difference between claiming and actually doing something.

I also want to tell you that your organisation are no better than Taliban, they are deliberatly misinterpreting the Quran to fit their needs, exactly like your organisation are misinterpreting the Quran to fit your needs. In my eyes both Taliban and RAWA are western tools for defaming Islam.

How can you refer to the God given rule "the veil" as an oppresive means? It's true it is a personal issue whether you wish to wear the veil or not, but when you reject the veil you don't defy Taliban you defy God. And as long as you defy God and intentionally misuse the Quran you'll never prosper. Use the Quran & Sunnah as your primary guidance and you'll prosper INSHAA ALLAH!

May God give you according to your intentions

Comments: This site is an excellent effort and source of information publicisng the extreme suffering of women under the Taleban's totally unislamic and oppressive government.

Please continue to stress that the rule of these fundamentalists is absolutely contrary to Islam. It is imperative that the World and other Muslims realise this.

As-Salaamu Alaikum wa Rahmatu Allaah wa Barakaatuhu!

I am myself a Muslim woman, Al-Hamduli Allaah! I live in a Western country but I cover from head to toe, with something like your burqah. I support Shariah. I go out only with a mahram. All this though I was born into a non-muslim family and was raised in a Western "free" society. Insha'Allaah soon I can move to a Muslim country, to some village with no Western "devils". I do not listen to music nor watch tv. All this from my own choice. You people follow your desires (hawaa) instead of fullfilling the obligations Allaah (SWT) has imposed on every Believer. THIS LIFE IS HELL FOR THE BELIEVER AND PARADISE FOR THE DISBELIEVER! Which one do you want to be? Insha'Allaah after this life there will be ETERNAL bliss for those who enjoy good and forbid evil and do righteous deeds. I say, concentrate your energies with the website making in Da'wah and educating my sisters in Faith in Afghanistaan. Learn your Deen, know your Creator and know your prophet (SAWS)!

Comments: It's a shame to see what humans do to each other in this world. Even though there is so much hatred, maltreatment, or violence against women, your site not only educate people around the world, but it also unite all the good people to stand up and fight the injustice. Your site enables people from every nation to see the true suffering where cameras are not allowed. This terrible treatment causes millions of people to share their tears with those who have died in the name of freedom and righteousness. At the same time it causes anger in the hearts and souls of the good people and forces them to stand up and say enough is enough. Thanks to your site and others, women now have a powerful voice which enables the whole world to hear. This voice unites people from everywhere to create an army of justice. No matter how much hatred or evil exists in this world, women of your organization and others are a great inspiration to the hearts and souls of all the good people because you stand up for what is right. Your constant battle against injustice is like a guiding star which shines brightly above the heads of those who live in darkness and have no hopes.

Comments: I dont know what to say when I see how cruel and unhuman those so called Talibans are? Please just keep up your struggle I believe that one day our country, women of our country children of our country, men of our country, our history, our proud, our religion, our homes....... will be back! Because ferocity end soon! And these Talibans are the most cruel people over the world! Never seen such kind of people! Whats inside their mind, what do they want is out of understanding! I would like to say to other people who surf this site that: People of Afghanistan are not like them! They are not Afghans! They are like robots being programed by Pakistans goverment! Talibans do not fallow what Quran has said! They fallow what Pakistan´s goverment says. Cuz like I said they have been programed! No feelings at all, when a person does not have feelings, how can he/she fallow a religion! To accept a religion you need to have feelings to believe on that religion and Talibans have no sense how to! And now I´m wondering how can they say that they are muslims and they fallow islam! No they do not! Country of their leaders and "shaikhs" in united Arab emirates. Women work there, in Pakistan they country of their boss, Herotic movies showa publicly on cinemas. Why they do like this in Afghanistan then???! They see women in Pakistan not having veil how come it´s ok there and not in Afghanistan?!??!?! It´s just they are not muslims thats all! Islams is a great religion.

It´s not a cruel religion as they show it. At the end I would like to say that I´m proud to be Aghan and I love my country and I say this also that these women who are struggling so hard should be supported and get aid internaitonaly. Cuz they are struggling agains women´s right and human right! A man would´nt be anything with out a woman. Afghanistan need back those women who worked in hospitals, in schools, in goverment and more and more!

Allah may be with you all who are struggling and who support them.

Comments: This message goes out to those who accuse the builders of this site for what they would call being "against Islam".
I normally do not send out any messages but the rage was too much to hold back. Due to autocontrol I refrain from cursing but I can curse in five languages and all of it to them...
1) I am Muslim, I commited many sins in my life to be sure.
I can not deny that. Will I be punished for it? Probably, yes. But you who profess so much knowledge about Islam, Dont you know that the only sin that God does not forgive is to take the right of others? Am I going to burn more for the alchohol I had, or the things, which they call themselves Taliban, burn more for the misery they put the Afghan people in? What is not covering yourself compared to stoning a woman to death? What is drinkin alchohol compared to years of wasteful war, injection of ignorance? What is going to a wedding with mixed compnay!!! compared to making a 10 year old kid shoot a man?
2)Taliban has committed the greatest crime and sin against both humanity and God. They have taken the right of choice from people. Obeying Islam by force does not amount to much faith. Everyone should recognize the choice they have and and make their own rational choices whatever it is.
Sad it is that you tell how many women like you educate themselves, and to what purpose? Will you tend my wounds at a hospital(I am male) when you become a doctor? Will you be able to work with men? Be their equals? If your answer is no, then why do you waste the resources of the world?
Many more things to say but I wont waste my words to deaf ears and minds.

Comments: Salam (hi) to everyone in here. excellent job i really like this side, I always come and read what people write in the guest book. And I appreciate that .
Well I think Islam is a very intresting and very gorges religion. But now the TALIBAN poeple has made the word islam scary to all of us i think. And the reason why I think this way is that in KURAN it does not say that womens should be slaves, and cant be educated, at all. IN KURAN says that all womam and man should have equel rights. And both woman and man should be educated.
The TALIBAN people are using womens statue in order to get control of Afghanistan. They are using islam as a wapone to get control of Afghanistan.
I think all of us in here need to help our beautyful countery. And give the women the right that they deserve. And Punish all TALIBAN's .
And TAliban's are not afghani if u think that way, they are all for PAKISTAN. They are send form Pakistan. And if anyone thinks that Pakistan is our friend. Then you are wrong.
They are our best enemies. And if you are wondering how I know is I did my jonier project about Taliban. And that's how i found out that they are not form Afghanistan they are from Pakistan.
Once again thanks for the job that you have done to create this web side,

Comments: To all those critising this great site:
I'm lost on where exactly you're criticism comes from. While, yes I'm not from Afghanistan, I'm not Muslim and I'm sure there's a lot I don't know about, I think some things should be cleared up
1-Women's rights are not against any religion, especially women. NO ONE has the right to repress and group in any way. You keep talking about how the Jews, Christians and any other religious group are persecuting your religios group, but then believe that because you believe your religion is correct, that you have the right to restrict the rights of half the Afghanistani community
2-Where do get Communism from? Communism works on the theory that everyone is equal - is this where you believe that this site has communist tendancies?
3-Your relgion has not in any way been mis-represented. The only critisim I can see is of a governement that was not even elected
4-What RIGHT does any group have to enforce their personal religious beliefs on a country??? Religion is personal - it should not be used to run a country. What would happen if some satanic cult took over your country? Would accept their beliefs imposed upon you?

Know that we will not stop until women have the choice to decide on their beliefs - we are watching and waiting

Comments: Salaam:
I do not have much to say except I pray to Allah that he/she will raise a Queen to liberate the people of Afganistan. Allah is Most Great and Allah reflects Woman as well as Man. The taliban fear the great power of the goddess side of Allah! This is why they or any man works so hard to keep women down. I pray each day that my sisters are delivered! I have no tolerance for the mistreatment of women and children, anyone for that matter! I would like to see the woman organize and leave the country, any way , any how. Take up arms and be prepared to fight and die! This must stop! Read about the ancient Queens of Ethiopia of long ago. Allah will bring the right people to you. The taliban can be over taken. Did they not take over? So, they can be gotten rid of!! Use your underground networks, get the tools you need and go to it! It will not be easy, I sit here in another country far removed from your struggle,however, I feel you , and I visulize your success! Pray. Meditate. Ask Allah for Divine Guidance. A Plan to take matters into your own hands. Please Sisters do not give up the fight or hope!

May Allah GRANT YOU PEACE-LIGHT-STRENGHT-WISDOM-AND FULL GODDESS POWER

People in America are so consumed by thier "problems" that they neglect to uphold thier obligation to humanity.What the Taliban is doing to these woman is denying thier basic rights and ripping away thier identity.

Comments: I think your site is great! We need to immmediately put an end to the Taliban and restore all rights to Afghan women. No women should have to live under these despicable conditions. These asshole Taliban rulers are making up bullshit laws and using Islam as their defense. No where in the Qu'ran does it mandate for the full body covers, the rape of women, the oppression of women,or the abuse of women. Doesn't Islam call for the respect of women, for they are the mothers and wives. The Taliban is only causing the downfall of Afghanistan, women are forced to work as prostitutes and beg to feed their children because they can't get jobs. What purpose do the body veils serve anwyays? The only ideas I can think of is being good for a Halloween costum or for blind man's bluff at ramadan parties. If women are forced to wear these ridiculous covers then men should be required to wear a black cloak, a turban, and a face mask. Do Afghanistan men enjoy torchering women or was I mistaken?The only reason the U.S. isn't interevening like it always does is becasue we are scared of the terrorists, like Bin Laden who are camping out in Afghanistan. We are scared Binny laden will go beserk and nuke us if we attempt to bring down the Taliban. We should stop being scared rats and bring down the Taliban immediately. The human rights of Afghan women need to be restored!!!!!! Please e-mail me any new info about Taliban, I'm doing a speech on it.

Comments: It is amazing! That your website is muslimwomen.com
Your site does not even deal with "Muslim Women" first, you do not "believe" in proper "hijab" If you read or studied the Quran you would know that it is manditory for all women. Secondly, you have a huge gripe against Sunni Muslims, that is because you are a Shia, against Islam and ignorant about Islam.
Dont complain to the Kafrs, complain to Real Muslim women to assist you. Do you want Kafrs money or sympathy? Would you be any better than those prostitutes?
When was the last time you prayed?
When was the last time you went to a wedding with alcohol and mixed company....
that is why there is no success.

Those prostitute women dont believe in God, hijab, or the Quran and all they want is money.
THere are million of Afghans all over the USA and Europe..guess what? They cover thier hair and get an education...They are the Real Muslim Women.
No one supports brutality, but is it nessesary to say that it is "islam;s: fault? Why is Islam the #1 fastest growing religion?

Please learn about what a real Muslim Woman is.

Looking at this homepage makes me feel gulity because i am here in America living a good life while my poor people in Afghanistan are suffering. I am willing to help the RAWA organization in any way i can and i would like to say that our religion ISLAM is beautiful and pour, but the talibans are making it look bad. Nowhere in the holly Q'uran says that putting ANY people through suffering in any kind of way is ok. The talibans say that they are doing everything in the name of ALLAH, but the things that they are doing are not in the name of Allah because Allah never said to make other people suffer.

Comments: i found out about your page from a teen magazine here in oz. it is amazing how many people don't know about what is going on in afghanistan. it is hard to believe that this is still happening in the year 2000- but here it is! I didn't even know about it until a protest for women's rights in alghanistan came in my e-mail. i was wondering if you would have a banner for my webpage??? Anyway, if there is any way i can help please e-mail me. this site has already incouraged me to join amnesty international and community aid abroad!

Well, I'm Fernanda and I'm 15, I'm really interested in asian culture and I've recently finished a book about woman's in Saudi Arabia and islamism well, living in ocident and having a TOTALLY different culture and also being a woman I'm really revolted with woman's situation and men's ridiculous mind thinking they're more important than womans in some asian coutries.... it only proves that their minds are too short and that they're afraid of womans because they know you girls can get their places one day! And you will!
Well, keep up the awesome work and your incredible power! For those people who write thinking this site is not a good idea and who agrees with the sittuation of woman, you could think about and change your minds, specially you boys.... Rock on girls! One day you'll use mini skirts, mini blouse, go out alone, go out to dance, do gymnastic... everything we do here! Also, if any1 from afghanistan wanna talk, pls e-mail me! I'll always support you!

Comments: I think your website is great! I learned alot about U.S. foreign policy mistakes in Afghanistan. What I do not completely understand is the term "Jihadi?" Does that mean the faction of the former mujahideen that is not part of the Taliban? As I understand it "jihadi" would mean people who claimed to be fighting a holy war.
Also who is Rabbani and what is his group "Jamiat-i-Islami?'
As I understand it, "jamiat" is the plural form of "university" in Arabic. Is Mr. Rabbani the man who holds Afghanistan's seat in the UN? Or am I thinking of somebody else here?
Also who is Golboddin Hekmatyar? Is he from the Taliban or the Jihadi? Why is he a disgraced leader?
I have a suggestion for you on how to cripple the Taliban. Why don't you contact former Prime Minister of Pakistan, Ms.Benazir Bhutto and see if she will run for a third term, on the condition that she agrees to suppress the Taliban once she gets into office. I leave it to your ingenuity to find out where she lives now.
I think it would definitely help the people of Afghanistan if Pakistan were to kick out the Taliban from their bases in Pakistan.
Finally, please tell me when you are sponsoring any rallies or demonstrations in support of democracy in Afghanistan. Perhaps I could attend if it's in Washington, D.C. Thanks.

I printed some of the reports off the site for class. Some of the men in class couldn't believe that any of the things that were reported was still going on but it did open their eyes on what was happening in Afghanistan and all Islamic countries. I try to add those women in my prayers. I'm not rich eought to send money to help them. But the more we can talk about it to other women maybe we can get the government help change things there.

Comments: Dear Muslim Brothers and Sisters ,
Please be aware of Devils and Evils of the demoralized Godless , Unbelievers of the Western World .
They are all corrupt Men and Women , They are liars .....Its they who need our help .the help of the only and true Faith of Islam. Its they who can only find their lost Right and salvation by coming to Islam ,embrace it and hold on tight to it and by implementing the wonderful rules and laws of the only and universal Religion of the most Merciful God (ALLAH SUBHANAHU WATAA'Ala ) ISLAM is the only and ultimate WAY OF LIFE , SALVATION and HAPPINESS to MANKIND .
I WAS BORN AS A JEWESS , simply because my parents happened to be Jews , then converted to Christianity . I studied thoroughly both so called Religions ( CHristianity and Judiasm ) eventually I reverted by the grace of ALLAH to ISLAM , I stress - REVERTED to Islam Praise be to ALLAH
most gracious most merciful , for all humans are born Muslims , but unfortunately their parents either they make him or her Jew or Christian .
So Please my Dearest Brothers and Sisters be AWARE of the ugly WORLD CONSPIRACY agaist the true believers -the Muslims .
I have , from the very beginning been following the rise of our beloved Brothers of TALIBAN IN Afghanistan , May Allah bless them and grant them Victory over all none - believers , be it Christians , Jews , Communists or the so called RAWA members who went astray and took the path of SATAN.
Let me tell you one thing you stupid RAWA members , its you and your likes who destroyed the wonderful land and poeple of AFGHANISTAN , and now the Islamic rule and law ( SHAREA'A ) is prevailing again by the will and grace of the ONE and ONLY true GOD (ALLAH )LORD of the WORLDS .
Dear Brothers and Sisters ... Cant you see that most of the poeple who signed in this GUESTBOOK of the so- called RAWA Devils , are either Christians or Jews or none - believers who are lost and seek salvation for themselves in vain , poeple of no morals no dignity , no respect , poeple who treat one another like as animals or even worse ...they **** each other on the streets .
The Women in Islam have their equal rights as Man , They have Dignity , respect , vertues .....No other so called Religion can offer Mankind what Great ISLAM has offered .
Glory to Islam , Glory to TALIBAN , GLORY AND VICTORY to all MUJAHIDEEN all over the World .
LONG LIVE TALIBAN .....LONG LIVE MUJAHIDEEN .MAY ALLAH CURSE AND DESTROY ALL DEVIL WORSHIPERS .
GOD BLESS ALL MUSLIM SISTERS AND BROTHERS ALL OVER The World .
Your Sister in ALLAH

Comments: I have bookmarked your site and just want to say I am so relieved to know that their are women in your country who have NOT LOST HOPE.
ANYONE under these horrible , despicable conditions would want to kill themselevs, get depressed, etc...how can anyone live without hope?
Because of people like yourselves who dare to be humane and run this site, this awful oppression and persecution of women and other innocent citizens of Afghanistan WILL end someday VERY SOON.
I can only speak as one ordinary young woman, but I KNOW the world wil NOT tolerate this, and if it does, I wouldn't want to be a part of of this world in that case!!!!
I'm putting a link to your site on my homepage, as I think it's extremely important you get as much traffic as possible, though I can contribute little.
Please notify me through email if there are any reliable charities that are actually making a difference in this situation that I can donate to.
I will not sit here and let this happen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I could be any one of the women or children or even innocent men in Afghanistan and this CANNOT happen on this earth!
I don't care who believes in WHAT God,...NO God worth anyone's worship or belief would believe in this oppression and slaughter, nor want to watch it happen.
Anyone who's read the Quran knows that even what's been considered the 'mildest' form of oppression of women in the Middle East is a bastardization of Islam's Holy Book, and what the Taliban is doing is a complete abomination of it, it bastardizes Islam, and it blasphemes humanity and any God watching over us.
Notify me if there is anything I can possibly do.
The issue of oppressed women in the Middle East has worried me for years, but sometimes I feel like a helpless speck.
But if a vast majority of people can finally join together to do something, that power of thousands or millions of specks could actually make a difference!!!!
Don't ever give up or LET up!!! Keep this website up until the war on human rights in Afghanistan STOPS!!!!!!!!!!!!

the Taliban have interpreted the Koran like this... for the woman to have no power...
and i believe that is very wrong... no where is it written in the Koran, that if a womans FOOT is seen in public, that it is true to be amputated! that is SOOO sinful, for someone to amputate it..
Allah loves us, and does not want out freedom to be taken from us... no where is it written in the Koran, that women have no rights...

As with all causes, information and education remain the most important element in the fight to free Afghan women and others living as they do. I heard about the website through Amnesty International and, while i have been aware of the harm that the Taliban inflicts for some time, i have now taken a more active interest--i've decided to research the situation for World Issues class in school and will also bring it up at the annual meeting of youth in my area in the form of a workshop and possibly a motion to petition governments. I think the time has come for the Taliban.Thanks for providing such a good resource and good luck in your fight!

When they must be, they are caught having to serve men. It's a catch-22 Do not doubt for a moment that protests, petitions, speaking to others and doing what you can will make a difference. The Taliban and all mysoginists will rot in hell.
My father has an Iranian background and used to lock me up in the house for the day-for speaking to a boy on the phone. He would force me to give him my wallet so I had no independance......I know somewhat your feelings.

I truly appreciate your spirit for organizing this site in honor of those who are the victims of this Taliban movement. I want to thank you, since you have provided me enough informations concerning this issue which are still unknown to many people around the globe. Oh yeah, the good news is that I am going to discuss this topic in the class with my classmates. Moreover, I would give this site to my other friends so they may offer any help to the people in need. If you need any help, just drop a mail.
I really love to be part of this organization.

I'm 16 and I am working for children of Afghanistan in a NGO formed by Afghan children and youth for Afghan children and youth. I have been reading Payam-e-Zan since last three years. It is good but you people are using valgur longuage like swearing, as far as I know this is an insult for litrature specially when it is used by a woman. secondly you are blaming each and every person involved with politics, I think you should choose one person that you support or select an active woman who can represent Afghanistan like Meena.

I heard of the women's rights problems on 7th heaven. For one reason or another I was crushed. I'm only 13 but right now I cry. I have been worried for over 3 months now. I finally looked you up on the net. I am soooo glad I did! I want to help. I know I am across the Ocean and to young to do much....but I have the heart and the courage for it. Please send me more info. I feel a terrible aching in my heart that can't be settled by one letter or message. I am a woman and will stand with those who need me! THEY ARE WRONG! I feel VERY proud to know you all are doing what you can to stop them. They must be pretty ignorant to believe they are above us!

Comments: I am a college student interested in feminism. This semester, I did a media-monitoring project in my women's studies class. I was curious to find out how the New York Times dealt with the Taliban's disgusting treatment of women. I found that it completely dismissed and minimized how much women in Afghanistan are suffering. I find it unacceptable and very disturbing that the only time the UN felt pressed to take action against the Taliban was when many male refugees were reported dead. What the Taliban is doing to women is criminal, and every human being has a duty to do whatever is in their power to make people aware of what is going on, and try to help the situation in any way possible. I am very glad to know there is so much activism against the Taliban. My best wishes to all those who are fighting back!!
Sincerely,
Rebecca Jorgensen

I will continue searching until I find a group or organization through whom I can offer support. So far, all the ones I've located are feminist and I am not a feminist -- I am a traditional, old-fashioned wife and mother. I believe we all have equal rights "endowed by our Creator," no matter where we are, where we live, or what our gender is, and that those rights do indeed include life, liberty, freedom, and the pursuit of happiness. And like another guest said, where would all the men be without women to give them birth? Freedom!!

WAKE UP PEOPLE!! Of course the Taliban are going to be on their best behaviour. They see this as the perfect opportunity for the world to see how kind and compassionate they are towards people. This is there moment to shine in front of a world stage because everyone is watching, meanwhile human right violations and atrocities are carried out on the citizens of Afgahnistan by a group of hoodlums who have NO RESPECT for human life.

I heard about the taliban from a friend, and after casually reading a story about it in a magazine, became interested enough to do some Internet research. I have read some of your information and the stories of your brave women. I have been left speechless. I simply fail to understand how any human being can be subject to such inhumanity.
I feel that these taliban assholes are the latest in a long legacy of patriarchal dominance and that they must be stopped. The only way I feel is necessary is with violence. I feel that wherever possible, if your women can gain access to arms, they should do so and use them to kill these idiots. They and any males who support them and the way they treat women should be made to feel what it is like to be treated so harshly. They should be raped, killed, mutilated, tortured and dehumanized in every way possible.
If I can help from this side of the world in any way please tell me how.

Comments: Hello,
I would just like to take a moment and say why? Why is our beloved country going through so much? Why do we as Afghan people in America not help and take part in such a terrible crisis that our country is dealing with right now? Maybe it's because we are frightened, maybe it's because we are gushna, it could be many reasons. One day, I WILL HELP AND I'll make it in my best interest that our country is peacful again. I'm a sixteen year old Afghan girl, and the photos and articles that I had read in this website shocked me and left me in tears. Also, I was born in America; however, I love my country dearly even though I wasn't born there. This is unfair, unhuman, and most of all this is not Allah's will. I mean how can you isolate women from society by not letting them work and following their dreams? Why are men allowed to work and actually become somebody in Afghanistan, and all they have to do is grow a stupid beard where as women have to wear the burqa? WE WERE ALL CREATED EQUAL! The Taliban will face their judgement one day.

In this world women have to fight hard, politically or even militarily, against male chauvinist barbarity and foreign domination as well as the abuse of religion, particularly the supreme religion Islam. As a Muslim I salute Rawa women for giving their lives in the battle against atheist Soviet Russian occupation. Rawa must also stand up against Western ideological dominance of Afghanistan. It is as bad as and some times worse than Soviet rule. It means making women Westernised ie exploited like cattle, like super models and glamourous actresses judged by their bodies. Westernisation also means capitalism, which is the privatisation of the economy and the impoverishment of thousands. Rawa must stand for a socialist and democratic Afghanistan based on true, progressive Islamic principles of democracy, justice, women's and minorities' liberation, independent judiciary, abolition of torture and redistribution of wealth from rich to poor. Follow the success of socialist democratic Sweden in the 1970s and 1980s. Do not support the return of Zahir Shah since he was also a crook who oppressed the masses. Have a suitable republican in exile be Afghan president. Else establish a presidential council of moderate opposition parties committed to opposing the rule of fundamentalist Afghans. There are many moderates in exile to choose from. Do not end up supporting Israel's right to exist. Israel is an illegal country built on the blood of Arab Muslims and non-Muslims by European Jewish terrorists and migrants. Israel's existence is against Islam, too since the Middle East nee West Asia was predestined to belong to the Arab Muslim people.

The more I think about the Taliban, the more my heart fills with hate for them. I wish there was something I could do to help these women because I can't imagine what they are going through. It is time that we all band together and do something as a group to help these women out. I would really like to be part of anything that would help the women and children of Afghanistan out!!! What makes me even sicker is the fact that innocent children are suffering. It's one thing to harm an adult but when you start messing with children, that has to mean that the Taliban are nothing but a form of the devil. I feel that if President Clinton can declare war for a just cause then he needs to declare war on the Taliban, because these women need someone to help them and they need help NOW!!

Though I don't know much about Afghanistan except haveing seen some Pathan business people and accounts from my father, I developed interest since Najibullah took power. He looks like a saint compared to a Talib. I came to know of the site from my brother. Unfortunately it was given to me by mistake as www.rawa.com, only to find that it is German and nothing to do with the Afghan tragedy. How can men do some thing like this to women is beyond my comprhension. They too have mothers, sisters and daughters.
I gave the website address to my daughter and to some of my friends, many of them women.
If I have to order pamphlets, what will be the mode of payment. How long will it take to reach me. I will be leaving for India on 27th of this month and will be back on 17th of january. I would like to receive them before I leave or after I arrive. I fully support your cause and wish you all success in this.

As I read through the web sites, I realized the oppression was even worse than I had understood. I know something about Islam from living in the Middle East as a college student many years ago, and I appreciate the fact that RAWA points out that other Islamic countries are not interpreting religious and moral law in the same repressive way as the Taliban.

Tengo la impresión de que algunos hombres tienen un gran miedo de que las mujeres se destaquen y eso los lleva a cometer las peores atrocidades.
Por experiencia propia sé hasta donde pueden llegar las cosas, he sabido de mujeres golpeadas, y manciladas en su honor como personas pensantes nada más por levantar la cabeza cuando van con los estúpidos machos de sus esposos.
Deseo exprearles mi más sincero apoyo por su movimiento y deseo expresarles que llevar a cabo un acto así, el de defenderse, es un acto que merece el mayor respeto. Las respeto y las admiro, ustedes son un ejemplo para las mujeres del mundo.
Hasta vencer. Siempre.

The power abuse of young men is only a sign of the rule of the evil one as fought by all of humanity from time to time. From what I heard from France, the taliban might be compared to the storm troopers of Adolp Hitler, or to the secret police of Stalin. I have urged my congregation to send petitions deploring the abuse of basic human rights to the United Nations and to accuse the Nato gang of being more concerned about politics than they are about the lives innocent peoples such as those in Kosovo and the Sudan etc.

I am also afraid to speak out for fear that these men will come after me and I am an American woman! Do these men not consider the fact that woman bear their children, care for them, keep their beds warm, etc...? Without a woman their would be no Afghan men! This kind of thing will never happen here and if it does, I will not stand for it and will be one of the first to be shot. I am sick over this and cannot imagine the pain that must be taking over every woman of that country. I read about a woman who was killed just because part of her arm showed while outside! that is appalling! Woman are beautiful and should be made to feel as such. What is being done to rectify this? Is America helping in any way? Man...I just don't know what to say here. I am flabbergasted and there are no words that can even come close to fixing this or easing the pain of the Afghan women. Just know, I saw the pictures of the beautiful Afghan children and the looks of suffering in their eyes. I saw the pictures of the woman and the suffering in their eyes. It is a sad day in the world when it comes to this. Religion is not going to help. Isn't that what started this thing or has this been going on for sometime there? My heart goes out to all the woman and children of Afghanistan and any other country that has to suffer in conditions like these.

I HAVE SEEN MANY AFGHANI REFUGEE WOMEN IN INDIA MARRYING HINDU MEN WILLINGLY AND LEAD A HAPPY AND PROSPEROUS LIFE.
MY ADVISE TO YOU ALL OPPPRESSED WOMEN OF AFGHANISTAN IS THAT ISLAM IS A HOPELESS AND ANIMALISTIC RELIGION, KICK THE ISLAM OUT OF YOURSELVES. CONVERT TO CHRISTANITY ( BECAUSE IT IS SIMILAR TO ISLAM BUT ABSOLUTELY PEACEFUL RELIGION ) OR BETTER STILL COME TO INDIA AND MARRY HINDU MEN TO LEAD A PEACEFUL AND HAPPY LIFE.
THE MAIN CAUSE OF DEGRADATION OF AFGHANISTAN IS "ISLAMIC FUNDAMENTALISM" AND THE WOMEN OF AFGHANISTAN ARE THE GREATEST VICTIMS.
I REQUEST CHRISTIAN MISSIONARIES OF INDIA TO SPECIALLY FOCUS ON THE PLIGHT OF AFGHANI WOMEN AND BRING THEM TO THE LORD JESUS, INSTEAD OF CONVERTING THE ALREADY PEACEFUL AND CIVILISED HINDUS TO CHRISTIANITY.

I do not think Koran says that this is the way woman should be treated, otherwise Koran encourages men to respect not to abuse them in such criminal way.

Nowhere do the teachings of the Koran incite or justify behavior such as this. Unfortunately, it is savages such as these fundamentalist blasphemers, that have caused the people of my country to both fear and hate Islam and it's culture, without ever knowing the true teachings of Mohammed. The "war" that is being carried out by these politically motivated scum is not a Jihad. There is nothing holy in either their movement or their acts. I pray that the One God will see fit to end this reign of terror, and that my nation will be moved to assist in that process. I have written to my congressmen, representatives, the President and First Lady concerning this.

Namaskaar.
Indeed,what horrible tragedies you all Ladies as well as other Afgan Nationals are facing in Afganistan because of Taliban Atrocities.Looking at your Web Site was an Eye-opening experience for me.My full sympathies are with you.
It is very hard to believe that,in the Name of Prophet,such inhuman deeds are committed by Taliban.It is impossible to believe that,the Holy Man wrote against Women,who was supported by brave and intelligent Lady Khadija,who not only finacially supported the Prophet but also married him.
Muslim Man is permitted to marry four Women,only if,he is financially and emotionally capable to treat all of them absolutely equally,only if his first Wife or earlier wives give consent.This system was granted with only intention of giving safety to needy Women,from being exploited and harrassed sexually.Because of wars Men were dying enmasse and wives were left behind unattended and without any support.It was a noble intention in those days.
How can a Woman can produce two witnesses,in the situation like Rape ? How could one Man's opinion be equal to two women's opinions ? How Women can be considered as Property, which can be traded in market ? It is impossible to believe that the wise man of God the Prophet has written these things in holy Kurran.
This must have been misinterpreted and wrongly implemented by Taliban like followers for their selfish convinience in olden times.With present technological revolution,the Islam Religion should be interpreted in present context.But,this will be never allowed by fanatics.
But,things are changing slowly in right direction.I still remember that,the older generation never used to get photographed even for their Passports.But,fundamentalist Country like Saudia,which is so-called custodian of Mekka and Medina,the holy Cities has also made in compulsory for everybody in Saudia to get themselves photographed by Identity Cards.Technology and Convinience prevailed over fanatic fundamental beliefs.
Ladies,do unite yourself to revolt.You have very tough challenge ahead of you.I pray my Gods to give you strength to fight the Evil in the garbs of Taliban.

We are just down the street from Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado. We, too, have looked into the face of evil recently. Our empathy for these women calls for action.

I was just going on the net when I came across your page. It seemed interesting to find out how life for women was like in Afganistan. I must say what I read horrified me beyond definition. I was disguted at the way you were treated. I never in my worst dreams thought thing like things happend to my fellow muslims BY my fellow muslims. These men seem to think that they are the perfect muslims, but I know well enough to say they are no where close to that. You tell me where in the Quran does it say you may go off and kill whom ever you choes. You tell me where it say you may do whatever you want to innocent people. You tell me where it say anyboby is better that anyone else. Muslims are equal and the same. No one person than another. Allah put us here because helove us all. Now you are tellin me that these men are killing the peopl Allah loves? I must say it is very sad when I, a 15 year old girl know more about my religion and the way of Allah then these old men. How can we help you over there. Why are you treated so badly? What have you ever done wrong? men say that Allah only put women here to have children, but I must disagree. He put us here because he loved us. If that was the only reason he wanted us here, I would not be going to school, and being on my way to becoming a lawyer. If Allah really had no use for us then he would have made men cappable of having children and had no women whatsoever. But he did put us here and we are here for a reason other than to have children. But yet I must say the men have NEVER in their entire lifes had to do the hardest job. They never raised a child. It is the hardest job on Earth. You must teach that child what is right and wrong. You must teach that child how to walk, talk and live. YOu must show them how to be who they are. There is no job harder then that. People tell me that becming a lawyer is very hard, but i say it is no where near as hard as raising a child.
I am very happy that you women that made this page can stang up for your rights, and tell other what you feel. I hope you the best of luck.

Please also send me Taliban e-mail address so I can send them a re-joinder.
I hate to death the self-designed and two face standard of Islam by Taliban and its creators Jamat-i-Islami in Pakistan.
I am a Muslim and know what the islam is.
Their teaching and ruling of the state is not Islam but lust of power and material.
At the end I want to mention, even though RAWA is something different what they pose, the Talibans have no right to send threatening and terrorist messages.

Comments: SALAAM,

WOW! WHAT NERVE! WHAT FACE! WHAT SHAMELESSNESS!!! YOU THINK HIDING UNDER THE GUISE OF WOMEN RIGHTS SENSIBLE AND AWARE AFGHANS WILL NOT RECOGNIZE YOUR TRUE MAOIST FACE??? THIS IN ITSELF SHOWS WITH HOW MUCH REGARD YOU VIEW YOUR OWN COUNTRYMEN AND YOUR OWN COUNTRY. IN THE DESTRUCTION OF THE BELOVED AFGHANISTAN YOU ARE JUST AS RESPONSIBLE AS PARCHAMI, KHALQI, MUJAHIDEEN, AND TALIBAN. YOU DESTROYED AFGHANISTAN BY CORRUPTING THE YOUTH AND COMMITTING NUMEROUS ATROCITIES. JUST BECAUSE YOUR BASE OF SUPPORT WAS NOT AS BIG AS THE OTHER CRIMINALS DOES NOT MEAN YOU WOULD NOT HAVE DONE THE SAME. SORRY TO BREAK IT TO YOU MY SHOLAYEE COUNTRYWOMEN, AFGHANISTAN SHALL NEVER FALL FOR THE LIKES OF YOU. MAY GOD TAKE YOU WHERE IT TOOK THE REST OF MARXISTS AND MAOISTS. AS A FELLOW COUNTRYMAN, I WANT TO ADVICE THE LIKES OF YOU. TRUTH ALWAYS COMES OUT. THE ONLY PEOPLE YOU FOOL IS POSSIBLY YOURSELVES. OR MAYBE NOT EVEN THAT. MAY GOD GUIDE YOU SO THAT YOU WILL OPEN YOUR EYES AND SHED THE SHACKLE OF IDEOLOGY TO WHICH YOU ARE DYIENG TO SACRIFICE YOUR PEOPLE AND YOUR COUNTRY. LET ME BE A WARNING. AFGHANISTAN SHALL BE FREE AND THE LIKES OF YOU SHALL BURN!!! UNLESS YOU CHANGE AND FREE YOURSELVES FROM YOUR MAOIST IDEOLOGY WHILE YOU HAVE THE TIME. AFGHANISTAN BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY!!! NEITHER MARXIST, NEITHER CAPITALIST, NEITHER ISLAMIST!!!

Comments: On a brief note, I feel that you should focus on the fact that the communists distroyed our Afghanistan, NOT the taliban. The communists murdered our children, our mother's and fathers, our brother's and sister's, our family members, and left us without home and hope. Please look at the good the taliban have done for our mother land. Every Afghan has suffered from our country's misfortune but to place blame in one direction is unfair. The only hate that should be felt is for the Russians and those who betrayed their country, not towards the taliban, who are trying their best to bring a country that has been distorted into some sort of peace and where there will be less fear and eventually more freedom and justice for all. Have love for your people, help them, and voice your suggestions but please do not bring down your people (the taliban) for truly wanting strength and success for our country.

What the taleban are, are fanatics. They take the fundamentals of Islam and add about 3000 irrelevant rules to Islamic law. I hope Allah casts these devils into hell.

We scarified over 2 million of our brothers and sisters to liberate Afghanistan and establish an Islamic government. Your Moslem brother and sister are still scarfing themselves to achieve the final stage of victory even if that cost us another 2 million we will succeed. Dear sister you should realize that the West and Hollywood ..... have a hidden goal to dehumanize Moslem. Obviously they do not want an Islamic government to succeed for years Hollywood movies showed Moslem and Arab as terrorist to brain wash people by giving them false image of Islam. You should realize that they do not care about women rights or human rights. If they do, why they do not say a word when women and children are killed in Palestine by Israel or the starving women and children in Iraq by America terrorism so call sanction and booms or the starving women and c

From what I observed on your web site, it can be said that the "rawa organization" is just spreading HATRED ...
PLEASE STOP THE HATRED against OUR BEAUTIFUL Afghanistan, pleeeeeeze stop filling up your own pockets from the donation in the name of WOMEN AND CHILDREN of afghanistan, just reflect back and see that ALL YOUR COMMUNIST PARTY EFFORTS, MALITIA EFFORTS, AND ALL YOUR LOOT EFFORTS against the "so called" Fundamentalism (a word which is created by the WEST against ISLAM) has brought to Afghanistan so far ... ! It is so Obviouse that your web site and that this "rawa" Organization can be called the "leftover" of the old communist percham party of afghanistan.
Efforts of "under ground communist " groups like yours has brought Afghanistan NOTHING but missury, HATERED DIVISION, and disrespect of one group or another race ... Afghanistan has become what it is RIGHT NOW due to the selfish and "JAHILANA" (FOOLISH) efforts of groups like yours !
I am NOT a supporter of ZAHIR SHAH, or DAUOD SHAH, NOR of the Taliban.
However, I do support ISLAM, AND WHAT YOU ARE DOING IN THIS "FULL OF HATE WEB SITE (rawa org.)" is giving a bad name to ISLAM ! PLEASE DO NOT EXPLOITE ISLAM , AFGHANISTAN, THE WOMEN OF AFGHANISTAN, THE CHILDREN OF AFGHANISTAN , Please ! May Power be to those that are in the TRUE path of Allah ! Khoda hafez a concerned Afghan.

Another fact of the matter is that you people are supported by the CIA and the Iranians(cowards)to malign the public image of Afghanis who have strong Muslim(sunni) beliefs.
Now that the IRANIANS have realised they cannot spread their Corrupted versian of Islam in Afghanistan no more, they are now using Dirty tactics by getting sluts/prostitutes to form an organisation like this one against the Taliban.
NO ONE CARES WHEN MUSLIM WOMEN ARE FORCED TO LIBERALISE THEMSELVES LIKE IN TURKEY BUT ALL YOU PEOPLE ARE SHOCKED WHEN WOMEN IN MUSLIM COUNTRIES ARE ASKED TO ISLAMISE THEMSELVES. HOW IRONIC......
JUST SHOWS YOU THE MOTIVATION OF THE SO CALLED HUMAN RIGHTS ORGANISATIONS.

Research has shown us over and over that improving the lives of women and children, not suppressing them, is the way to improve humanity. Unfortunately our world governments give more attention to weapons and to those who have weapons. Those without weapons seem not to warrant the same degree of attention which indicates that we need women leaders all over the world. Men, even sympathetic ones, just do not seem to get the point!

How can the world evolve into a better place-If the men and women of this world cannot live in harmony and love. essentially I do not approve of the treatment of women in Afghanistan,and I hope the RAWA assosiation succeseds in its goals,May RAWA get the support it deserves!!!

I'm sure I join women of many religious backgrounds in praying that the Taliban will somehow be brought not only to face true justice, but also to recognize that God (Allah) is a loving God, that we are all equal before Him, whether we are Muslim, Christian, Jew or of any other religious faith.

Comments: I was one among MANY to receive a message from a woman at Brandeis University about the atrocities against Afghan women under the Taliban. I sent the message on with my questions about...who should we "women who care about our sisters" connect with in a situation like this, so far away, so...full of unknowns for me. Yet, if I were in the shoes of any of the women whose horors I was learning about, I weould want my sisters to do SOMETHING, at least choose to know. So here I am, through a friend, through a friend... I belong to a Roman Catholic women's group who share a passion about justice and full-development and participation for women.

I am concentrating mostly on the Talibans' treatment of Afghan women, something women all over the world should know about. I have bookmarked this page and will check it often. I found your page to have much information that is necessary for my reports and research. It is a well constructed page. I found out about it from an article in an internet magazine, Yahoo!

I think that these events should be published all over the world,because a lot of people are mis-educated about the events in Afghanistan. I consider myself a feminist activist. In my opinion, women should be proud to reveal their skin. Women's beauty is a gift from God and there is not reason to cover it up! The Talibans are playing God. And although they want to obey the rules, they can NOT be the decisin makers on who should live or die. Keep on doing a good job RAWA! I think you are sending the message across. Thank you Barbara

Comments: Tabrik! Inshallah your voices cannot be hushed. The news since I left in 1967 has been so sad, unbelievable and male dominated that I couldn't even think about my friends in Charikar and Kabul with hope. I've lost touch with my students for fear of endangering them. Though it's been many years since my Peace Corps stay, my heart is still homesick. It is incomprehensible that so many homes and streets and school are gone, that many of my girls didn't grow up. I have so long regretted my naivetee, that I didn't smuggle out Torpeikay. She was the most intellectually and emotionally honest student I have ever had. I feel, looking back, the pain that I may have caused when telling the story of Cinderella. She was so impressed that the Prince asked the girl for her hand in marriage, that C. could have said "no." Her face was radiant with wonder as she asked abou t every freedom she could think of, especially career options: "Teacher, could she be a writer? a policeman?" idea after idea. And I answered"Of course." Please forgive me. I know that if she lives she is a rawa member. Thank you for being a light and a guide.

The price of freedom is indeed eternal vigilance. It is very heartening to find your focused, practical and courageous resistance against misogyny and bigotry of all kinds.

Comments: Sisters, I am with you every step of the way. I have just found out about the plight of Afghan women, although it has been going on for years now. News here in America needs to be better circulated. I will be sure to spread the word around. Being a 20 year old woman in the United States of America has been so easy on me, that I have failed to notice that my own gender is being tortured in another country. It amazes me that the Tabilan system is so underdeveloped. If it were a more developed system, they would realize that they are REALLY behind the times. They claim to be religious...WELL...in what religion and what god would support such treatment of human beings? Not only is there a problem with the treatment of women, but men also are being abused for small crimes by having their hands and feet amputated! The Taliban government needs to review how countries like mine deal with such matters. Here in America our punishment system is MUCH more humane. I wait for the day the Taliban fall, and that will be the day I laugh in their faces! Sisters, I wish you the best of luck in spreading your message and stopping this inhumane treatment. If ever there is anything I can do, please let me know. I will do the best I can! Thanks for giving me the opportunity to view such an informing web page as this.

Hundreds are signing it as I write. There are people in the entertainment industry speaking out and trying to draw attention to your situation. Mavis Leno (Jay Leno's wife) has already gone to the papers and television. Many more will follow. I'm afraid here in the western world, many people do not believe or understand something unless they see it in a TV movie starring their favorite actor. However, I expect that will probably be happening soon. I will personally contact my friends to raise awarness and money. I am not Islamic, I am Christian, but I hope you will accept my prayers for you anyway. We have a problems here with Christian Fundamentalists who claim the bible entitles them to hurt, kill and enslave people. I have been told by a muslim friend that the Koran does not in anyway demand or justify the hideous treatment these fanatics are unleashing in the name of Allah. it is blasphemey.

Comments: I am sitting here in my office, reading the daily paper when I come across an article by a woman named Ellen Goodman who writes for the Boston Globe. The name of the article is "The world is writing off a generation of women to Taliban's reign of terror". After reading the article I clicked a few times and found your page. What is going on here?? I can't believe that this is really happening to anyone, anywhere. I understand that women have been forbidden to work, to go to school, and to wear anything but those terrible black burkas. I also understand that male doctors have been forbidden to treat female patients and since there are no female doctors; women are dying. Is this right? Is this really happening? How can that be? I live in a small town. Last night I went out with a gaggle of honking girlfriends, all dressed to the nines. We had drinks, and smoked and laughed at all the men. We teased and danced and laughed some more. After a fabulous night, I went home and crawled into bed with my husband. He woke up and kissed me and asked me if I had had a good time, then he started telling my jokes. We got to laughing so much that there were times it was hard to catch my breath. We are not rich and there are times when we have troubles paying the bills on time. But we get by okay. I have never really felt rich, until today after reading about these terrible things happening in a country that I'm not even certain where is. Today I feel very rich. I am so sorry that this is going on. How can it be stopped? Who is in charge of such crazy stuff? Does his mother know what he is doing? After i finish looking at this page I am going to E-mail President Clinton. I'm sure hes not going to jump right on this bandwagon, but it never hurts, right? Good luck and Peace-- Remember- Women who seek to be equal with men lack ambition.

I have also visited Afghanistan twice and am horrified at what is happening to women there now. My heart goes out to all those who must fight for the most elementary freedoms and educational possibilities. If the Taliban thinks that men cannot be trusted to treat women right, it is men who should be locked up, not women!

Comments: I first read of the plight of the women of Afghanistan a year ago in a Canadian woman's magazine. Since then I have taken the time to write letters to the Canadian Minister of Foreign Affairs; U.N. Secretary Kofi Annan; and most recently I wrote to Mary Robinson the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights in Geneva, Switzerland. I was then as I am still now outraged at the deplorable and horrific conditions these women have to live with. I firmly believe that the world community has betrayed and foresaken Afghanistan. The barbaric and tyrannical rule of the Taliban is a result of the Western Powers and the Soviet Union's pouring of arms into the country to support various factions in Afghanistan's civil war. These same weapons are now being used to violate human rights and oppress women. Forced to live in a world of darkness stifled by the "burqa", Afghani women have been stripped of their dignity and and their unalienable rights as human beings and citizens of the world. Let us speak out for those w

It is unfortunate that you women of RAWA do not recognise the light which Allah has sent down, the Shari'ah of Muhammad, sallallahu alayhi wasallam, as found in the Qur'an and Sunnah. It is unfortunate because rejection of the deen of Islam means disgrace in this life and disgrace in the hereafter. Because you hate what Allah has sent down, Allah has set a seal on your hearts and rendered your deeds worthless. May Allah save us from the path which you have taken. But we do commend you on the wonderful pictures of Taliban's implementation of the Qur'anic order of Hudood on the thief - may Allah's deen spread from East to West. And Allah's curse is on the Kuffaar and Munafiqeen.

Comments: Salamalaikum As a Muslim, I am genuinely horrified at the behaviour of the Taliban and empathise with your suffering. However, am I right in suspecting that Islam, even in the manner intended to be practised by the Prophet himself, is not to your liking. Proposals to separate politics and religion run counter to Islam. Surely the actions of a large group of ignorant and dangerous men should not drive you away from the Sunna of our Prophet. It is irrespective as to whether or not the Taliban compels you to wear hijab. Not to do so as a sign of protest misses the point I think.The only reason for you to cover yourself is due to the order of God and his Prophet. That should be your main consideration, shouldn't it? Let me know what you think.

For our people have suffered to much and we need peace.. I pray that Gulbuddin, Massud and Dostom and any Taliban leader who makes our people suffer in hell, and I hope they all die a horrible death.

Remember women's right in Islam is the highest in comparison to any other standard. Due to the current crisis in Afghanistan Taliban are implementing stricter than normal rules on women, the women of Afghanistan should thank Taliban for their efforts to protect their dignity. If you recall those people from the north when they came to Kabul they raped, looted and killed so many people and you can not tell me that they are better than Taliban. So stop bad mouthing the Taliban and don't forget that every woman will get all the rights as prescribed in the holy Quern and no more. Long Live Taliban

Comments: August 26, 1998 From Image to Self-Concept Deny not evidence and the mind shall be free. As of late, the United States has bombed the embassies in Sudan and Afghanistan in direct retaliation for a case of offenses agaisnt the United States and her citizens abroad. It is no secret, and ample evidence available to suggest that some extremist groups such as Bin Laden have been responsible for the perpetuation of international terror. Keeping in mind the psychological costs of terrorism as well as its technical, though often uneforceable, due to the negligence of the UN, illegality, it is important to consider the contractual obligations of self-defense under international law, were unwritten, or expressly implied through consent and precedent, or moral obligation to protect and commitment to uphold expressed or implied duty. Therefore, as a student exercising the freedom to speech, in a democracy, I believe the actions of our federal government justified…and the point moot. No one died and made me judge but the will to discourse is the will to learn.

They do not have an education or any level of thinking whatsoever. The only thing they know is sexism and violence. They are pigs! I am ashamed of them!

Comments: If you people are true Afghans....You should realize that Taliban are Afghans and there is nothing gained by making them look bad to other countries, because this will only hurt Afghanistan. Do you realize that our problems that we have today are because during the forty years Zahir Shaw was a sleep and his surpression of education for his own personal gains caused Afghans to have a very weak foundation thus creating the side effects that occured after he left for Rome. So don't blame Taliban because they don't know any better and remember Afghans are Afghans and they will never learn. So no matter who you think is better they are all animals with no education and with no future. So stop wasting your time because the future for Afghanistan is DEAD. There is none and there will be no peace in Afghanistan because the majority of its people are so uneducated and poor that they will never get it. So lets give up and concentrate on own personal affairs and forget Afghanistan a country the we once had. Reality is painfull but it is the reality and you have to face it, it has been too long that Afghans are living in a dream world and it is the time to STOP. Good Luck Qudbuddine Khan MD, PhD FACOG

On the other hand, when I read about this demonstration it made me proud to be an Afghan, and to know that my sisters are right there in the middle of the struggle without fear...The stupid Talibs continue to expose themselves as barbarians and idiots to the world community... so in this sense, it was the best thing they could do!

This is what the Jews & Christians were doing, who were cursed by Allah Almighty. Our criticism, if it is needed, should be constructive not destructive. It is very bad that we are following the West and other non-Muslims. We should never forget that we all are Muslims and bound by the orders of Allah Almighty, as laid down in the Holy Qur`an and Sunnah. We are required to struggle for the betterment of the Islamic Ummah. In the hope of an Islamic and united Afghanistan! Your brother in Islam, Wali

Afghan factions are killing each other yet Pakistan is being blamed. Under one regime women were being raped and under the other regime women are being locked up by Afghans and Pakistan is being blamed. If pakistan supports the Taliban other countries support the other warring factions yet Pakistan is the only country being blamed by many Afghans.

Comments: I think you people have forgotten the attrocities to women during the Rabbani/Massoud regime. According to the united nations and Amnisty International, more women were raped in afghanistan during their regime than during the entire bosnian conflict. The people fighting in Afghanistan, even the Taliban fighers, were born during the war and are in essense wild. How could your group lobby for allowing women to be allowed to walk among these people, by themselves, until there is a resolution to the problem. Since there are not any jobs for men, how do the women expect to work and make money? The government has not paid the civil servants for the past 4 months. I think the restriction on women should remain until there is a stability in the current government. At this time the government cannot guarantee the safety of women who venture out without an escort. The government does not even trust their own fighers, so for the time being restrcting women is their only alternative. Be patient!

We are currently working in the Hindu Kush in assisting the Afghans in building a post war economy by teaching them mining for gems and minerals. However, I was unable to return this past summer (1997) because of the influence of the Taliban. It is all our lose that we cannot return to live in the country of our dreams.
