More misleading coverage from the pro-jihad, pro-sharia Guardian. It's the sharia. "Society's prejudices" are sharia. Period. And note the use of the word "conservative" to describe the devout Muslims who stabbed these actresses and left them bleeding to death outside of a mosque.
More from Obama's "peace"partners. Last night he talked about "ending the war in Afghanistan" -- Obamaspeak for surrender. Turning the country over to the Taliban is like turning Germany over to Hermann Goering in 1945. Last month it was announced that Mullah Omar can run for president in Afghanistan. Mullah Omar has been wanted by the U.S. State Department since October 2001. There's a ten-million-dollar reward on his head. He sheltered Osama bin Laden and al-Qaeda killers in the years prior to the September 11 attacks. He had a hand in the 911 attacks, and is directing the Taliban's ongoing war against the U.S.-led NATO forces and the government of Afghanistan.
Kabul attack on female actors leaves survivors facing more 'punishment' Guardian, September, 7 2012 (thanks to Tom)Killing and death threats reveal depth of Afghan society's prejudices against women
Even after the taunts and threats for appearing on TV, and whispered criticism of "immodest" outfits, the attack on actor sisters Areza and Tamana, and their friend Benafsha, came as a surprise.The trio were minutes from moving out of a neighbourhood in which conservative locals had made them feel unwelcome, walking to meet a minivan full of their possessions, when six men surrounded them in a lane, lined with high-walled compounds. They left Benafsha bleeding to death outside a mosque with stab wounds, and the injured sisters desperately seeking help.Word travels fast in Kabul, and in a couple of days other actresses were being intimidated. One prominent young actress, Sahar Parniyan, received death threats and has gone into hiding. On the rare occasions she still ventures out she has to wear the burqas she used to despise.
