WATCH: Taliban Break Out In Laughter At Question About Female Politicians


A female reporter interviewing Taliban members in Afghanistan questioned them about women’s rights.

They responded with their stock answer that women will have rights according to Islamic Sharia law. The reporter then asked if that meant that “people will be allowed to vote in female politicians?”

The Taliban members were apparently so bemused by the question that they burst out laughing and asked the cameraman to stop filming.

Also laughable is the solution that UN Ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield provided for the US abandonment of Afghan women into the hands of the Taliban. According to her response, she seems to believe that the fact that the UN “expressed in no uncertain terms” that the UN “expects the Taliban to respect women’s rights” is all that is needed to ensure their safety.

“We have expressed in no uncertain terms here at the United Nations through a very strongly worded press statement from the Security Council that we expect the Taliban to respect human rights, including the rights of women and girls,” she said. “We also have indicated that they ‘have’ to be respectful of humanitarian law.”

  1. They are absolutely correct. Women shouldn’t be politicians. A woman’s natural habitat is in the home. (It says so in the Torah, Shulchan Aruch and everywhere else.)

    Just because the Western world went beserk and reversed male and female roles, like the Mitzriyim did, and demand women perform men’s jobs and vice versa, doesn’t make it normal.

  2. ujm, does this “natural habitat,” sanctioned by the Torah etc., include the workplace, where wives first bring home the, er, bagels and then tend to the kids?

  3. And who said having female politicians is a good thing

    The latter half of the 19th century when males received the franchise and larger role in the
    in the political process
    due to their military sacrifices
    but before women grabbed their franchise
    the best years for stability and growth for the world
