A Woman Among Warlords The Extraordinary Story of an Afghan Who Dared to Raise Her Voice

Ai ha la pos sibilità di entrare a far parte dei delegati della Loya Jirga il gran consiglio afgano che dovrebbe governare il nuovo corso si ritrova in realtà seduta a fianco degli aguzzini di sempre Lo sgomento non dura che un attimo Poi Malalai decide consapevole che ci sono scelte che segnano una vita per sempreDecide di non piegarsi alla legge del silenzio Osa dare voce a chi non ha voce Si alza Chiede la parola E proprio lei una donna dice la verità che nessuno aveva mai detto In aula scoppia il putiferio Infedele gridano le lunghe barbe Prostituta Solo l'intervento di altre delegate evita il peggio Dal giorno del suo intervento Malalai è. Malalai Joya has outsized courage She has experienced trauma and seen brutality and grinding poverty on a scale we who live under stable governments cannot imagine Just knowing that carrying a book inside your burka can cost you your life is an outrageous thought She braved this and to share her education Later she used her courage on the local and world stagesIt is painful to know that the perpetrators of the destruction of Kabul those who murdered innocents and those who made and enforced the draconian laws against women came to power in a democracy It must be horrible for the average citizens all who are bereaved in some wayJoya was very young to be elected to the Loya Jirgha Was it wise to begin her tenure with such open criticism Here in the west it is not a way to begin a new job or be effective in politics But none of us is facing colleagues who months earlier ordered or participated in the murder of innocent people and the destruction of cities How does a sane and compassionate person respond to thisIf only by defining the people in charge Joya shows how corrupt and anti democratic the leaders are Karzai s first choice for Chief Justice told NPR that he supports beheading for un Islamic behavior and Karzai s top drug advisor spent 4 years in a Nevada prison for selling heroin The governor Karzai appointed to Joya s home district was believed by residents to be a war criminal and later believed to have attacked its orphanage and clinic While there are no courts to prove or disprove their beliefs couldn t Karzai find a governor with a better reputation These are only a few examplesThe US pouring billions into the country did not want to hear bad news Good news stories about roads hospitals and schools continue to emanate from the country Many like Barbara Bush believe or want to believe or have a vested interest in the public believing that all girls and boys can now go to school and that there is a functioning economy and legal systemIt may be that President Obama has gotten the message In March he made a surprise visit to give stern words to Karzai In this book Karzai appears to be hapless He is sympathetic listener but he does nothing Some say he is a user of Afghanistan s major export and while this book does not hint of that his behavior does I presume he listened sympathetically to President Obama but when he does nothing what will President Obama do with a country so out of control Joya says the US should leave immediately but also says for this to work the warlords must be disarmed a major Catch 22This was a very enlightening book The specific examples she cites helps to put the pieces left out by the media together The book needs and editor Some information is repeated Some topics need introduction Some of the material is presented in a way it is hard for western readers to pull context While the ualities of the book put it in the 3 to 4 star category I give it the full 5 stars for the specificity of the information and the courageous work of the author

Oggetto di continue minacce di morte e di continui tentativi di attentati Ormai vive una vita blindata cambia casa ogni giorno è costretta a girare con il burua proprio lei che lo combatte da sempre E il giorno del suo matrimonio ha dovuto controllare in ogni mazzo di fiori che non ci fossero bombe Però la sua battaglia non si ferma niente può più tacere la sua voce che rivela le verità più scomode e taciute i silenzi sulle connivenze internazionali la natura fondamentalista del regime Karzai in cui si intensifica la presenza di trafficanti di armi di droga di violatori dei diritti umani La storia e uella tormentata del suo paese si intreccia. an important book in that it highlights the reality in Afghanistan that is not told in the mainstream media She gives some of the history too which is new to me and helped me understand the current situation There is no doubt she is extraordinarily brave to stand up for the rights of women and justice in a country where opening her mouth is immediate suicide and incredibly tenacious and passionate in her goals to get as far as being an MP the fact she is still alive shows she has a lot of grassroots support She is doing amazing work however one thing I do not agree with her is her belief that as soon as foreign powers go Afghanistan can be on the road to true democracy She herself mentions briefly in the history telling parts of the book that there have been widespread reforms before earlier in the 20th century which she points out in a positive way as they did so themselves without any help from outside which is true but eually true is that the people with their strong Islamic religious culture and I m not talking about fundamentalists uickly became disillusioned with these liberal dictators and paved the way for less progressive rulers So Afghanistan may eventually become a liberal modern country but it s geographical position and religious culture will make this road long Other reasons I gave this book only 3 stars is that she mentioned a few times as an euivalent situation the persecuted Palestinians from the aggressive Israeli occupiers and the terrible lives and predicament of the poor Palestinian children this kind of biased ignorant viewpoint is hypocritical as she has never visited the middle east and is getting her information from presumably the media that she herself lambasts as biased and under the control of warlords and american interests in Afghanistan and so not reliable when considering the Afghan situation and made me uestion her other statements Finally do not read this book for great writing that s not the point it is very repetitive and by its nature full of slogans and black or white self righteousness
