Women resistance in Afghanistan going well. Women Judges must be protected, evacuated, say underground fighters
President Joe Biden with his quirks, like calling a Black adviser, “Boy” and randomly sniffing women’s hair, not surprisingly was blind to the potential danger to women when he negotiated with the Taliban to, in a de facto sense, giving these notorious terrorists, Afghanistan.
But this wasn’t a politically incorrect blunder, “it’s a disaster”, say the underground women’s resistance in central Afghanistan.
Friday, a group of Kabul, Afghanistan women demonstrated for gender equality in Kabul at government offices. They made tacit arguments for gender parity as the Taliban planned for a new government.
Taliban fighters attacked the watchers, say witnesses, driving them away, “not the protestors”, thus diminishing the protest impact.

Women in Afghanistan are heading back to the 12th century if the Taliban get their way.
Mocking the Taliban, hundreds of armed women have defied the Taliban, in ‘armed demonstrations in central Afghanistan, and elsewhere here’, say resistance members familiar with the events but who were not authorized by resistance leaders to comment and requested anonymity.
Near Kandahar, two “foreign women” were crudely arrested for allegedly supplying weapons to Afghan women demonstrators.
On Friday it was discovered the women had been released by “associates”, according to one of the women members of the local resistance movement.
The male jailers had raped one of the women they ‘arrested’. These seeven men were found, bound and gagged, naked, rolling around on the floor of a small room in the ‘jail’, in their own feces, probably for more than a day, according to witnesses from Kandahar province who took photographs which they shared with FPMag. The images are not suitable for publication.
The Honourable Ms. Hosna Jalil, former Afghan Minister of Foreign Affairs, in interviews, says she believes that because the 12th century misogyny which denied women parity with men is the traditional Taliban misogyny they promised fighters in their recruitment programs, the Taliban promise of a more moderate Sharia Law is unlikely to happen. Taliban fighters expect male supremacy, and no need to compete with women for any job or need to listen to women in authoritative positions.
“We are concerned about the issues of human rights in Afghanistan, notably on the rights of women,” U.N. spokesperson Stephane Dujarric said Friday. “It is imperative that women have the right to work, to work in a safe environment, and those are some of the issues that have been brought to the attention of our interlocutors in Kabul and elsewhere.”
FPMag citizen correspondent Gracie Edwards, working in Kandahar, but visiting Kabul this week, was assailed by three men who noticed her using her smartphone, she says. The men were dispatched but in the process of a conversation with her female body guards, the women learned the men were looking for a woman judge who had sentenced each of these men to a prison sentence three years ago.
“Over the past five years there had been as many as 328 female judges at various levels including minor traffic offence jurists. On 31 August when America fled Afghanistan, there were 248 women judges of various types. Many had not been reappointed by the recent government; and some had fled early in August,” Ms. Edwards explained on Friday. She says those women judges need to flee the country whether they want to go or not, otherwise they are going to be killed. That is what the Talibs told the women, she said.
“If the Americans and their friends can help President Ashraf Ghani get out of the country with 170 million dollars and a free helicopter, they can surely help a couple hundred women judges come to America and start a new life. Otherwise, I promise you, these women jurists will be hunted down and slaughtered in the worst possible way. What those Talib told us they would do to the Judge they were looking for was hideous,” said Ms. Edwards in a Signal text dialogue.
Observer says, “The Ashraf Ghani escape, stinks!”
The Picture and its story: Afghan president Mohammad Ashraf Ghani Ahmadzai, who had been elected President in a controversial campaign on 20 September 2014, was re-elected five years later according to public records.
Afghan President Ghani allegedly stole $170 Million in cash plus an Afghanistan helicopter and fled Kabul not long after meeting Biden at the White House
A few days after meeting Biden in Washington (above) Ghani fled Kabul in an Afghan helicopter with $170 million US dollars in cash, according to Kabul sources.
A Taliban warrant has been issued for Ghani’s arrest for allegedly stealing Afghanistan property and funds, say the Taliban.
The United Arab Emirates also confirmed Ghani was in Dubai and would be given asylum on humanitarian grounds, according to an Emirati release.
“War is messy, I agree,” said Simon Baldock, an Israeli security analyst.
“Curiously, both Barrack Obama and Joe Biden in 2014 declared the war in Afghanistan was officially over and troop withdrawals then began. What we are looking at is a massive American mess,” he added. “I agree that the Americans must get those women judges out of Afghanistan, posthaste. General Mark Milley did a great job so far on the evacuations, making military history, so keep that going,” Mr. Baldock said.
