Islamist activists in America keep insisting that Mohammed was the original feminist. Now the Taliban will show us how that works.
“Islam has given rights to everyone equally. Women have their own rights. How much Islam has given rights to women, we will give them that much.”
Mawlavey Kamiil, the Taliban governor of the Andar district
Islam has given rights to everyone equally. And women have their own rights. There’s an obvious contradiction there, but lefties would just call it “equity”.
Similar statements, probably workshopped by the Qataris, have been coming from various Taliban leaders.
The Taliban will give women rights, such as exist under Sharia. Western countries have been insisting that Islamic law is just fine and can’t possibly complain when they see it in action.
While the Taliban have been denounced for their horrifying cruelties last time around, this time they’re trying to show more self-control which means that their abuse of women may be no more horrifying than in Pakistan, Iran, Saudi Arabia, or any other countries governed by Islamic Sharia.
And those are all countries that the West maintains relationships with.
When Kabul doesn’t immediately run with the blood of women, the Qatari media operatives will claim that this proves that the Taliban have changed and they’re moderate. The media looking to move away from the criticism of Biden, will agree.
After all what the Taliban are doing is following Islamic law. And how can that be a bad thing?
