On September 11, 2001, the world changed forever when ruthless Al-Qaeda terrorists launched an aerial attack on the United States of America. Oblivious to the world's terror, Kay and Kerry Danes sat half a world away, secure in an embassy after a terrifying 11-month hostage ordeal in communist Laos. As fear gripped the globe, Kerry, an Australian Special Forces soldier, comforted his wife, Kay, as they struggled to come to terms with their hellish ordeal of torture, mock executions and the helplessness of leaving behind 58 political prisoners of a long forgotten war. The couple's hopes focused only on seeing their children again. In the years after regaining their freedom and working to re-piece together family life, Kerry returned to active duty with the Special Forces, and Kay turned her dark experiences towards creating social justice, over the years becoming a leading international humanitarian. In November 2008, amidst haunting memories of her Laos ordeal, Kay faced her fears and embarked on a humanitarian aid mission to deliver life-changing opportunities and aid to people devastated in war-torn Afghanistan. In an old dusty Toyota mini-van, armed only with hope, Kay and her companions, a florist from Arizona, a nurse from Texas, a public servant from Australia and a US Marine Korean War veteran, drove the ancient Silk Road amidst kidnappings, suicide bombings, carnage and chaos. This powerful story will have you gripping your chair and holding your breath as you travel with Kay through Taliban strongholds and the remote wastelands of Al Qaeda terrorists. Her story provides a rare glimpse of places we may never visit and the courageous Afghan people determined to persevere against overwhelming odds. Beneath the Pale Blue Burqa is a truly inspiring journey and an important contribution to the selfless efforts of all who have gone before to brave the perils of Afghanistan. Including a foreword by Afghan Ambassador to the Islamic Republic of Afgh 1. Language: English. Narrator: Susan Godfrey.

Should a Liberal State Ban the Burqa?: Reconciling Liberalism Multiculturalism and European Politics ab 117.49 EURO
High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Once the communist regime in Afghanistan came to power in 1978, from 1978 to 1987, the People's Democratic Party of Afghanistan moved to suppress religion, it implemented state atheism, replacing religious and traditional laws with secular and Marxist ones. Men were obliged to cut their beards, women were forbidden to wear a burqa, and mosques were placed off limits. After National Reconciliation talks in 1987 Islam became once again the state religion and the country removed the word "Democratic" from its official name. From 1987-1992 the country's official name was the Republic of Afghanistan.
When was the last time you heard a Muslim woman speak for herself without a filter? It's Not About the Burqa started life when Mariam Khan read about the conversation in which David Cameron linked the radicalization of Muslim men to the 'traditional submissiveness' of Muslim women. Mariam felt pretty sure she didn't know a single Muslim woman who would describe herself that way. Why was she hearing about Muslim women from people who were demonstrably neither Muslim nor female? Taking one of the most politicized and misused words associated with Muslim women and Islamophobia, It's Not About the Burqa has something to say: twenty Muslim women speaking up for themselves. Here are essays about the hijab and wavering faith, about love and divorce, about queer identity, about sex, about the twin threats of a disapproving community and a racist country, and about how Islam and feminism go hand in hand. Funny, warm, sometimes sad, and often angry, each of these essays is a passionate declaration, and each essay is calling time on the oppression, the lazy stereotyping, the misogyny and the Islamophobia. It's Not About the Burqa doesn't claim to speak for a faith or a group of people, because it's time the world realized that Muslim women are not a monolith. It's time the world listened to them.
style='the United States, France, and the Netherlands-are reacting in different ways. hijab and burqa lie at the intersection of the political and legal spheres. Consequently, the political and legal spheres have each attempted to enforce differing versions of the concepts of equality and neutrality. A cross-cultural and cross-national survey of judicial decisions and legislative action in these countries demonstrates how each is balancing individual rights and communal bonds, and adhering to or retreating from previously accepted human rights norms for women and religious practices.

Malalai Joya was named one of Time magazine's 100 Most Influential People of 2010. An extraordinary young woman raised in the refugee camps of Iran and Pakistan, Joya became a teacher in secret girls' schools, hiding her books under her burqa so the Taliban couldn't find them; she helped establish a free medical clinic and orphanage in her impoverished home province of Farah; and at a constitutional assembly in Kabul, Afghanistan, in 2003, she stood up and denounced her country's powerful NATO-backed warlords. She was twenty-five years old. Two years later, she became the youngest person elected to Afghanistan's new Parliament. In 2007, she was suspended from Parliament for her persistent criticism of the warlords and drug barons and their cronies. She has survived four assassination attempts to date, is accompanied at all times by armed guards, and sleeps only in safe houses. Joya takes us inside this massively important and insufficiently understood country, shows us the desperate day-to-day situations its remarkable people face at every turn, and recounts some of the many acts of rebellion that are helping to change it. A controversial political figure in one of the most dangerous places on earth, Malalai Joya is a hero for our times.
Amazing Ayyub, an Iranian Shi'ite skinhead, and Rabeya, a burqa-wearing punk, have kidnapped Matt Damon and are holding him hostage. They demand that Hollywood depict Muslims in a positive light--'just one movie where we're not these two-dimensional al Qaeda stereotypes.' But Damon's concerned they're playing into that same terrorist paradigm, thereby furthering the neoconservative perception of Islam. Meanwhile, Ayyub embarks on a mission to rid the taqwacore scene of a Muslim pop-punk band called Shah 79. Along the way, he makes himself invisible, escapes punk-eating zombies in a mosque off the desert highway, and runs into some psychobilly jinns. Things turn existential when Ayyub finds himself face-to-face with his creator--no, not Allah, but the author. This riotous journey of enlightenment reads like a religious service for teenagers on Halloween. But it isn't all raucous fun; written into his own novel, the author finds he is at the mercy of his creation.

Une base américaine de la province de Kandahar en Afghanistan. Au loin, on distingue la silhouette d'une femme enveloppée dans sa burqa. Elle est descendue de la montagne en fauteuil roulant, puisque ses jambes ont été arrachées. Elle vient réclamer le corps de son frère, un chef tribal pachtoun abattu lors d'une offensive lancée contre les Américains. L'état-major reste méfiant : s'agit-il d'une soeur endeuillée, d'une kamikaze, d'une envoyée des talibans, d'un terroriste travesti en femme ou d'une tentative de diversion? Sans jamais prendre parti, l'auteur donne la parole aux différents protagonistes - la jeune femme, l'interprète, le médecin, et plusieurs officiers ou soldats. Il nous permet ainsi de faire l'expérience d'un conflit cruel et absurde, en en révélant toute la complexité. Chaque personnage, quel que soit son camp, est non seulement doté d'une voix, mais également d'un visage, d'une personnalité qui lui est propre. Une Antigone à Kandahar revisite certains grands thèmes de la tragédie grecque tout en s'interrogeant sur les dommages collatéraux de la guerre, l'idéalisme, les valeurs occidentales. Magnifique et magistral.
