Taliban Say “Islamic Scholars” Will Decide If Women Can Work And Be Educated

Hey, remember this?

Taliban vow to respect women, despite history of oppression

The Taliban vowed Tuesday to respect women’s rights, forgive those who fought them and ensure Afghanistan does not become a haven for terrorists as part of a publicity blitz aimed at reassuring world powers and a fearful population. (snip)

Zabihullah Mujahid, the Taliban’s longtime spokesman, emerged from the shadows Tuesday in his first-ever public appearance to address those concerns at a news conference.

He promised the Taliban would honor women’s rights within the norms of Islamic law, without elaborating. The Taliban have encouraged women to return to work and have allowed girls to return to school, handing out Islamic headscarves at the door. A female news anchor interviewed a Taliban official Monday in a TV studio.

And then

Taliban kill woman for not wearing burqa on same day they vow to honor women’s rights

Taliban fighters shot and killed a woman for not wearing a burqa in Afghanistan on Tuesday — the same day the group pledged to usher in a new inclusive era in the country that honors “women’s rights.”

A photo emerged of a woman in Takhar province lying in a pool of blood, with loved ones crouched around her, after she was killed by insurgents for being in public without a head covering, according to Fox News.

And

Afghan Women Are Already Fading From Public View as Fear of the Taliban and Uncertainty Prevail
Women are afraid to go outside or speak out as crackdowns on freedoms begin

The rest is behind the Wall Street Journal paywall, but, it is pretty darned clear. And now?

A Taliban leader said a group of Islamic scholars will decide whether women can work or be educated under their new regime

A Taliban leader said a group of Islamic scholars will decide whether women and girls in Afghanistan can go to work or school, in remarks appearing to contradict those made by the militant group that promised women an active role in their new regime.

“Our ulema [scholars] will decide whether girls are allowed to go to school or not,” Taliban commander Waheedullah Hashimi told Reuters.

“They will decide whether they should wear hijab, burqa, or only [a] veil plus abaya or something or not. That is up to them.” (snip)

Hashimi’s remarks on Wednesday appeared to contradict those made by Taliban spokesperson Zabihullah Mujahid earlier this week, who promised that women would be “very active in society.”

Well, women in Afghanistan are hosed. Way to go, Joe Hiden! You know that the scholars will decide to go back to the way things were before the 2001 U.S. and allies invasion. Where are the women’s rights groups? Where is the UN?

BTW, even British lawmakers are condemning Biden for his fecklessness

Isn’t it great? Back to the war on terrorism in under 8 months!

    In essence, Ms. Logan points out the current situation in Afghanistan is exactly the outcome those controlling the Biden administration want. There is a benefit to someone or some group in the current outcome; because if there wasn’t, the outcome would be different.

      There was a series on TV named Rubicon in which individuals in government would use intelligence that would be used to invest before world events would unfold.

      Anyone of the members who disagreed would have to commit suicide.

      Sounds just like BII.

  2. Hairy says:

    When Trump left the taliban controlled 70% of Afghanistan
    And I guess 70% of the women were hosed but back then Teach didn’t see. To have a problem with it
    Now losing an additional 30% makes it Joe’s fault
    Teach the proble. Goes back decades back to giving billions to bin Laden and other radical Muslims to fight
    Russia for us
    For decades the 2 countries that had the worst women’s rights were afghanistan and Saudi Arabia
    We overlooked Saudi Arabia’s record because they sold us cheap
    Perhaps we should not forget what that word Taliban means
    It means student
    A student if the religious schools in Pakistam that were financed by Saudi Arabia and promulgated the worst most radical wahabi Islam
    But hey Teach let’s remember what you said was the .ost core conservative views, anti abortion and the taliban are with you on that
    Blowback
    Karma,
    One of the things I teme.ber well in

    If the taliban had oil like the Saudis people would like them more
    But all they have is opium which is rapidly being replaced by cheaper fentanyl

    • david7134 says:

      John,
      Your analysis does not make sense, of course you rarely do. Look at SA. It is located in an optimal area for movement of troops and the present ruling class favor the US. After Trump, our need for Middle East oil was markedly reduced, Biden is actively changing that, why. As to opium, that is cheaper than other products. You, Jeff a d the Z’s are losing it.

  4. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    So TEACH, you disagreed with trump that the US must get out of Afghanistan by May 2021??

    • drowningpuppies says:

      The first step in recovery is admitting you have a problem.
      Then seek help.

    • david7134 says:

      Jeff,
      Seriously, you don’t understand the issues.

    • Kye says:

      It’s not and never was if we agreed with Trump wanting to get out by 2021, we wanted out years ago. We just watched Junta Joe run out without a plan and destroy our credibility, leave thousands of Americans to die, start an onslaught of Afghans who now want to come here and leave behind new modern equipment for the Taliban worth billions. He couldn’t have done a worse job if he were senile. Oh, Wait.

      All the fake leader had to do was NOTHING. Everything Trump had set up was working from thr Wuhan vaccine to the Afghan withdrawal. But (like you) because Trump did it Joe the child sniffer had to fuk with it.

      YOU ARE ALL LOSERS and you act like spoiled brats.

      Why do you and senile sucker hate America so much?

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        Our credibility was ruined over the past 4 years. How many Americans have died so far in Afghanistan?

        • drowningpuppies says:

          Yeah, Rimjob, you are so right.
          Your credibility was ruined much longer than 4 years ago.

          As if you ever had any at all to ruin.

    • est1950 says:

      When Trump established that date it was into his second term as president. He was convinced he would be president in May of 2021.

      You do remember that Obama said he would pull out of both Iraq and Afghanistan. How did that work out for him?

      Joe Biden was opposed to killing Bin Laden, probably because his stoned son was selling bin ladens wife some of his art.

      The fact remains that even in DEM and GOP circles we all knew that THIS was going to happen. Remember the guy that is now going to be the new leader of Afghanistan was released from jail In Pakistan and returned to Afghanistan to work out a peaceful transfer of power.

      No one had any illusions that these clowns would be any different than the ARVN military of Vietnam.

      The World just knows that the Democratic party in the United States are a bunch of cowardly, sniveling dolts who will do anything to avoid a fight or a confrontation. Biden even tried to get Putin’s approval to put forces in central Asia to protect Afghanistan and was told NO so he went home with his tail between his legs and then the country got hacked TWICE just to prove a point.

      Biden is a Democrat. He is a pacifist In a world full of Alpha crazies. Joe biden is about as alpha as K. Harris. These people seek power to make up for their lack of spine.

      NON don’t be offended. There are tons of people like Biden on both sides of the AISLE. JOE just happens to be the one who is claiming the bucks stops with him.

      That is if you can wake him up long enough to tell him the buck arrived.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        Do you think the US should leave Afghanistan as then president trump wanted?

        Is your objections now about the clumsily handled exit?

        It sounds as if you believe the US should be MORE aggressive with its military.

        We had a “faux-alpha” in trump and the American people hated him. And it was trump who wanted to reduce US military missions worldwide. He surrendered Afghanistan to the Taliban. The subservient then-pres bent over to satisfy Russia. He “fell in love” with Kim of North Korea. He never met a foreign authoritarian he didn’t like – Putin, Kim, Orban, Bolsonaro, Erdogan, MBS, Duterte – because trump and the nuCons are authoritarian by nature.

        • Kye says:

          Another shitshow of retarded monkey typing for Elwood. Bravo. You managed another comment that’s nothing but lies, exaggerations and insanity.

          Plus you got to Trump, Trump, Trump again proving your insanity.

          Just so you know Afghanistan was surrendered last week BY FAKE PRESIDENT JUNTA JOE AND HIS WHORE VP who both promptly disappeared from public view.

          All stupid Joe had to do to be a great president was NOTHING but he just had to change everything Trump created thereby fuking up America. But I think that’s exactly what he and his demented Elwood followers and worshippers wanted.

          Why does Elwood hate America?

        • est1950 says:

          ???Is your objections now about the clumsily handled exit???

          Yes. Exactly. Its not leaving that is the issue. It is leaving behind 10’s of thousands to be butchered. It is 20 year old women who grew up with freedom that are now going to be raped, and or murdered. It is children who will never go to school again. It is leaving behind millions of tons of Ammunition that should have never happened. Hell There are pilots flying Gunships to other countries and now a dozen countries in this area have our technology, much of which will end up in CHINA and RUSSIA’s hands to be reverse engineered.

          ???It sounds as if you believe the US should be MORE aggressive with its military.???

          the UK is sending its special ops to pick up British citizens in Helicopters.

          The USA is waiting for Biden to wake up. YES the military should be more aggressive in getting our people out. Getting those that we promised to get out. This should have been done months ago. Not in the panic of the moment.

          IF Biden thinks that this was going to go any other way? Well then his advisers are Morons as the Taliban has been taking over province after province every since TRump Left office.

          ???We had a “faux-alpha” in trump and the American people hated him.???

          No he left with a 51 percent approval rating and its even higher now. YOU hated him. The left hated him. Elites hated him. The MSM hated him. Big Tech hated him.

          The people did not hate him. Only radicals like you hated him….Others might have disliked him.

          I do not HATE BIDEN. The right does not HATE BIDEN…the right dislikes Biden for what he stands for and the things he has and has not done in 50 years in the government….but as other keep pointing out….HATE seems to be the only word that you can use when speaking of any and all things right of very far left.

    When your closet ally is questioning your reliability to act, you’ve got a serious problem and adding to the problem you ignore the PMs calls.

    Things will go back to they way they were before 9/11.

    No Schools for girls and young women, one shot for not wearing a burka.
    Women and girls as young as nine years forced to marry Taliban fighters.
    Christians forced to convert or die
    Anyone working for or contacting the infidels will die

    We should ship all you leftist scumbags to Afghanistan so you can reap what you have sewn.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      The fascist right is always wanting to rid the nation of anyone who disagrees with them. So you would deport those you don’t like? Can’t wait for you right-wingers to take over what was once America.

      You’re part of the American taliban.

      • drowningpuppies says:

        The American Taliban
        Oh wow, Rimjob, that’s soooo original.

        Considering that Saigon Joey is threatening to withhold Medicare and Medicaid money to those Americans who don’t follow his demented political dictates.

        But you being a dipshit and all, it makes sense…
