Earlier this week the Taliban announced the ministers for their new government.
When in power from 1996 to 2001, the Taliban enforced the most extreme of interpretations, barring women from education and work and even from leaving home without a male escort, and requiring them to cover themselves from head to toe in public.
- A number of verses in the Koran say that men and women “were created from the same essence.” Some also state that men are “qawwamun” in relation to women. The meaning of this term is hotly debated. It has been interpreted to mean “protectors and maintainers” but also understood by some to connote the superiority of men over women. The verse goes on to say that devout women are “obedient” and that if they persistently disobey, their male protectors, as a last resort, should “strike” or “beat” them.
The Biden team dreams of a culturally and religious world that doesn’t exist thus clueless.
Biden’s Secretary of State Tony Blinken was shocked that the Taliban’s list for their new government did not include any women or former government officials.
The woke Biden officials have stressed to the Taliban the need for an inclusive government. The Taliban thought otherwise and filled the positions with an elite team of Taliban terrorists.

On Friday the Taliban responded to Biden and Blinken on the need for inclusivity in their new government.
Taliban spokesman: “A woman can’t be a minister, it is like you put something on her neck that she can’t carry. It is not necessary for a woman to be in the cabinet, they should give birth.”
A Taliban spokesman on @TOLOnews: "A woman can't be a minister, it is like you put something on her neck that she can't carry. It is not necessary for a woman to be in the cabinet, they should give birth & women protesters can't represent all women in AFG."

I don’t expect any women to have influence in Afghanistan moving forward, leading to the Biden administration distancing themselves even farther away from this fundamentalist Sharia Islamic nation.
