Taliban atrocities photo gallery

http://pz.rawa.org/rawa/gallery.html

WARNING: many of the photos and video clips on this website are not for the weak of stomach!

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. If you visit the link above, you'll get a pretty good understanding what type of monsters the Taliban are. God help our troops once the ground war starts!!! The Taliban mame and publicly execute their own citizens, including women. I dread to think what they'd do to any U.S. troops they may capture.

Oh my God.


By Meena:

Iíll Never Return

Iím the woman who has awoken
Iíve arisen and become a tempest through the ashes of my burnt children
Iíve arisen form the rivulets of my brotherís blood
My nationís wrath has empowered me
My ruined and burnt villages replete me with hatred against the enemy
Oí compatriot, no longer regard me weak and incapable,
My voice has mingled with thousands of arisen women
My fists are clenched with fists of thousands compatriots
To break together all these sufferings all these fetters of slavery.
Iím the woman who has awoken,
Iíve found my path and will never return.

I'm speechless.... thank you so much for the post, I've been meaning to check RAWA's site out for ages. God bless these incredible women for what they are doing. Everyone should see these photos, it's just devastating.
They have a gift shop too so please check it out. Show your support by buying a ti-shirt, etc... I just ordered one.
I just pray these inspiring women are not affected by any military action on Afghanistan.

Peace.

Hi LuvLady. Tis awful.

I keep leaving bits out. That poem was by a woman that was assasinated.

Here's the bit I forgot to put in, as well as the title. Hope the link works.

"Translation of a part of a poem by our founding leader Meena who was assassinated
by criminal fundamentalists in 1987."

Blah... http://pz.rawa.org/rawa/meena.html

Here's RAWA's statement on the recent attacks for those interested:

The people of Afghanistan have nothing to do with Osama and his accomplices


On September 11, 2001 the world was stunned with the horrific terrorist attacks on the United States. RAWA stands with the rest of the world in expressing our sorrow and condemnation for this barbaric act of violence and terror. RAWA had already warned that the United States should not support the most treacherous, most criminal, most anti-democracy and anti-women Islamic fundamentalist parties because after both the Jehadi and the Taliban have committed every possible type of heinous crimes against our people, they would feel no shame in committing such crimes against the American people whom they consider "infidel". In order to gain and maintain their power, these barbaric criminals are ready to turn easily to any criminal force.

But unfortunately we must say that it was the government of the United States who supported Pakistani dictator Gen. Zia-ul Haq in creating thousands of religious schools from which the germs of Taliban emerged. In the similar way, as is clear to all, Osama Bin Laden has been the blue-eyed boy of CIA. But what is more painful is that American politicians have not drawn a lesson from their pro-fundamentalist policies in our country and are still supporting this or that fundamentalist band or leader. In our opinion any kind of support to the fundamentalist Taliban and Jehadies is actually trampling democratic, women's rights and human rights values.

If it is established that the suspects of the terrorist attacks are outside the US, our constant claim that fundamentalist terrorists would devour their creators, is proved once more.

The US government should consider the root cause of this terrible event, which has not been the first and will not be the last one too. The US should stop supporting Afghan terrorists and their supporters once and for all.

Now that the Taliban and Osama are the prime suspects by the US officials after the criminal attacks, will the US subject Afghanistan to a military attack similar to the one in 1998 and kill thousands of innocent Afghans for the crimes committed by the Taliban and Osama? Does the US think that through such attacks, with thousands of deprived, poor and innocent people of Afghanistan as its victims, will be able to wipe out the root-cause of terrorism, or will it spread terrorism even to a larger scale?

From our point of view a vast and indiscriminate military attacks on a country that has been facing permanent disasters for more than two decades will not be a matter of pride. We don't think such an attack would be the expression of the will of the American people.

The US government and people should know that there is a vast difference between the poor and devastated people of Afghanistan and the terrorist Jehadi and Taliban criminals.

While we once again announce our solidarity and deep sorrow with the people of the US, we also believe that attacking Afghanistan and killing its most ruined and destitute people will not in any way decrease the grief of the American people. We sincerely hope that the great American people could DIFFERENTIATE between the people of Afghanistan and a handful of fundamentalist terrorists. Our hearts go out to the people of the US.

Down with terrorism!

Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan (RAWA)

I can't believe this. I only looked at a tiny fraction of the pictures on that site, and I can't believe it. It is so horrible, and so far from my life. I hate it. I hate it. I hate the world. I hate the evil. We need God so much. The world needs God's help. We need his love. All we do is kill each other. Everywhere. I'm so sick of it. And I'm no better than any of them. What do I do for the hurting? What do I do for the poor? I walk away. I ignore. I deny. I rationalize.
I've tried to change myself. I want God to change me.
I've got no answers.
