Afghanistan wives against the terrorism >

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!

I agree that we or any other nation for that matter should not support any "fundamentalist" government. Personally, I am against theocracy, the institution of a religious government over a civil state. But often when I say that, I am told I "don't understand Muslim culture," because the extremists who hold power and/or popular support in these nations do not seperate government and religion. There are exceptions among predominantly Muslim nations that don't merge the two (such as Turkey) and there are even some that are more tolerant (such as Jordan and, internally, Syria) so I do think it is an attainable goal. Unfortumately, it may require some western influence.

Their plight reminds me of all the true stories written by Saudi or Saudi associated women. "princess" and "not without my daughter". Its so hard to comprehend what they all go through.
