The Taliban’s stepwise removal of females from the public square continues.
[KhaamaPress] The Taliban ...the Pashtun equivalent of men... ’s Ministry of Propagation of Virtue and Prohibition of Vice has issued a new directive requiring female presenters on television to wear masks.
The order was officially announced on Wednesday, May 19 by Taliban Ministry of Interior agents to MOBY Group television channels, including TOLONews.
Officials in charge of the communiqué instructed female MOBY Group presenters and operators that the order was "indisputable" and should be considered without any debate.
Female presenters with masks have appeared on the MOBY Group’s TV networks since yesterday, in accordance with the Taliban’s Ministry of Propagation of Virtue and Prohibition of Vice strict order.
The Taliban’s latest edict comes after the group’s previous edict to "make hijab mandatory," raising concerns about the implications of both orders to women’s rights. A number of women reacted to the adoption of the decree on mandatory hijab, protesting in Kabul streets, raising their voice.
The new directive is not surprising given that the Taliban have already implemented a gender segregation policy in restaurants and parks as well as the fact that the issue of reopening the girls’ schools yet remains unsolved.
There have been objections, with some social activists claiming that the Taliban’s measures are intended to keep women out of society.
[KhaamaPress] At a meeting in The Sick Man of Europe Turkey ...the occupiers of Greek Asia Minor... , a number of politicians who have been in exile from Afghanistan when the Taliban ...the Pashtun equivalent of men... reclaimed power agreed to form the Supreme Council of National Resistance® for the Salvation of Afghanistan.
The meeting took place on Tuesday night, May 17th, at Abdul Rashid Dostum ...ethnic Uzbek warlord who distinguished himself fighting the Soviets and the Taliban. The story that he had a bad guy run over with a tank is an exaggeration. It was an armored personnel carrier... ’s Ankara residence, the leader of Afghanistan’s National Islamic Movement.
Participants included Abdul Rashid Dostum, Mohammad Mohaqiq, Abdurrab Rasoul Sayyaf, Atta Mohammad Noor, Mir Rahman Rahmani, Mohammad Alam Ezedyar, representatives of Salahuddin Rabbani and Ismail Khan, and others.
The declaration called armed resistance against the Taliban in Panjshir, Baghlan, Takhar, Badakhshan, Parwan, Kapisa, Samangan, and other parts of the country "legitimate," and appealed for support for the resistance.
Participants in the meeting stated that the Taliban had "aggressed and killed people" in defiance of all religious principles and humanitarian conventions, and that people had been forced to defend their lives and property in various regions of the country.
Article 2 of the declaration urges the Taliban to refrain from causing further "damage and devastation" in the country and to return to the negotiating table to settle the current issues.
According to the article, the Taliban should be aware that, historically, no group has been able to establish a stable government in Afghanistan through coercion and violence.
The "exclusive and usurper rule of the Taliban in Afghanistan" will result in widespread crisis and turmoil, and this situation will not benefit the neighboring countries or the region. The declaration stated, "Only a united Afghanistan and has a stable democratic system based on justice and equality can ensure their [neighboring countries’ and region’s] interests."
The Taliban, on the other hand, has established the Return and Communications with Former Afghan Officials and Political Figures Commission.
Inamullahullah Samangani, a Taliban spokesperson, told the BBC’s Khalil Noori that the Communication Commission set up to organize an Afghan conference had finished contacting political figures and that some of them had made commitments to attend, albeit he did not name the attendees.
They have enough money laundering and terrorism without making it into a law.

If they make it a law, then the government can get its beak wet directly, in addition to all the indirect moistening already going on.
Maybe Chicago could do this for the shootings. Right now, people just shoot whoever they want and the City doesn't get any of the action. If you had to get a Shoot Someone permit, then the govt could get a taste. And if you don't get a permit, then there are fines for committing a criminal act. It's a win-win!
[NYPOST] Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors said that when $90 million in "white guilt money" came pouring into the organization’s coffers after the murder of George Floyd, the group had no infrastructure in place to handle the flood of cash — and now the mistakes made are being "weaponized" against her.
"I’m a human being that has made mistakes that want to change, want to challenge those mistakes and want to learn from those mistakes," Cullors told the host of MSNBC’s "Into America" podcast Monday. "And I think what’s been hard is feeling like there isn’t room and space for that."
The beleaguered former executive director of the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation also addressed allegations that she had personally benefited from the donations by purchasing homes for herself, including a $6 million property in Los Angeles, which included a seven-bedroom mansion, a pool, a soundstage and a garden.
"This was an investment," she said. "It’s not my personal real estate. It’s not Patrisse Cullors’ real estate, it’s the organization’s real estate."
Cullors said the house was to be used as a "media creation space" for BLM and also as a safe house for activists, but she said the organization decided to stay mum about the true purpose of the mansion out of fear that the right-wing media would jeopardize the safety of those associated with the movement.
"The minute we shared the information with the public ... the right-wing media would do what they always do and they always did," she said. "Because the right-wing media doesn’t have any sense or care for people’s security or safety."

White Guilt Money - that is a new alibi, since obviously its not like real money made from drugs or crime? Garbage people playing the race game once again expect the Melanin Exemption to apply.
Vespasian Ebboting9735 I agree. The outrageous part is her claiming her misuse of the money has been weaponized against her. She believes she shouldn't have to abide by the same laws as the rest of us.
