The 18th of May 2011, Wednesday
The 18th of Jumada al-Akhira 1432

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful…

The year of 2011 has so far witnessed historic events, mainly the Arab Spring, or what I like to term the Breeze Uprisings. I termed the year 2011 as “The Year of Breeze”, hence the title of the post. I want to solely focus on the protests that have happened in Jordan in this post. Jordan is led by the arrogant Royal Hashemite Family. It was formed out of the Great Arab Disgrace and survived it. There are numerous tribes in Jordan. Such tribes are Native Jordanians. People might ask and wonder about the Arab Spring not affecting Jordan.

Living in Jordan and following events happening in it, I would like to say that the Arab Spring is obviously affecting Jordan.


The protests in Jordan started late and quietly. Unlike other uprisings in the Middle East, the people of Jordan do NOT want or even try to overthrow the Royal Hashemite Family. Doing such a thing would lead to a power struggle in Jordan. Doing such a thing would most likely put Jordan into a second bloodier civil war. Not only would trying to overthrow the Hashemite Royal Family lead to a second bloodier civil war, but that would make Jordan weak enough for enemies to exploit it.

In this case namely the Zionists of Occupied Palestine. No matter how quiet the Zionists are about it, or apologize about it, it is obvious that the Zionists of Occupied Palestine still have their eyes on Jordan for their Greater Israel. The first thing is falsely claiming that Jordan is “Palestine”. This is nonsense from the Zionists. It was the colonialists who achieved victory in World War 1 who formed Palestine, Jordan, Lebanon and Syria out of the Levant.

If I would blame anyone I would blame the Global Oligarchy for their plans at that time to divide Islamic Land after the Arabs from Hijaz took the Levant from the Ottoman Khilafa. It is true and an actual fact that the majority of the population of Jordan is Palestinian, but that doesn’t mean for Jordan to become “Palestine”. The Palestinian Jordanians and Palestinians throughout the world would object to such a thing, and not only Native Jordanians.

The manipulation King Abdullah II gets (like his visit with Obama in the U.S., where Obama pledged “money and wheat” to Jordan) shows how much King Abdullah could be manipulated, in a cunning way. The money is probably to buy people in order for them not to protest in the future. Now those who accept such offers and those who reject would show who are strong in their faith in Islam.


It needs to be mentioned that the Prime Minister and Senate Members of the Parliament are appointed by the King of Jordan, namely King Abdullah II. It also needs to be mentioned that King Abdullah II is the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Jordan.


The situation in Jordan, with unemployment and high prices, along with corruption in the Jordanian Government, is something no one would envy. Jordanians started protesting about such things, calling for Samir Rifai, the Prime Minister of that time, to resign. Samir Rifai is a Jordanian who was an ex-Economic Adviser for King Abdullah II. King Abdullah II made him prime minister so that the economic situation of Jordan could be improved. However with protests against Samir Rifai, it was obvious that the economic situation hasn’t improved under his leadership.

With King Abdullah II pressured from the protests, he sacked Samir Rifai and hired a worse Jordanian for Prime Minister. Marouf al-Bakhit enters the picture at that point, and he has remained prime minister since. He is a Native Jordanian from one of the Jordanian tribes, which most likely helped cool the nerves of some Jordanian Tribes. It was a wise decision for King Abdullah II to sack Samir Rifai, but unwise to appoint Marouf al-Bakhit as Rifai’s replacement.

With a career as the Jordanian Ambassador for the Zionists of Occupied Palestine and a career in the Jordanian Armed Forces, it was apparent that his appointment would do no good for Jordan. al-Bakhit’s career showed when protests continued on, even after he was appointed. He led siege to Amman with the Armed Forces of Jordan at first temporarily, trying to not allow the protests to spread to other cities in Jordan. Regardless of that fruitless oppressive effort, protests did spread to other cities in Jordan. Not being successful, the siege didn’t last long.


At first the Jordanian Tribes were quiet about the protests, but at one point the leaders of numerous major tribes showed their dislike toward how King Abdullah II was acting. Due to that King Abdullah II somewhat responded more, with him remaining in Jordan for a longer period of time, and not always traveling out of Jordan. The Islamic Action Front was the first to call for a National Salvation Government for Jordan. When the Jordanian Tribes expressed their dislike toward how King Abdullah II was acting, they also called for a National Salvation Government, thus indirectly supporting the Islamic Action Front’s call for it.

The Jordanian Tribes also expressed their dislike toward the wife of King Abdullah II, Queen Rania. However true the reason for their dislike toward Queen Rania, it showed racism in an indirect way that the Native Jordanians had for the Palestinian Jordanians. It might not be apparent to foreigners or to tourists, but from time to time there are clashes between Native Jordanian Youth and Palestinian Jordanian Youth, however uncommon and rare that might be. I’ve witnessed it on several occasions myself.


The demands of the Jordanians were simple at first, similar to the ones across the region, however those demands increased. Eventually the protests were calling for a Constitutional Monarchy. This means for the people to elect the Prime Minister and the Senate Members, meaning to decrease the authority of King Abdullah II ONLY. That was how the constitution for Jordan originally was: a Constitutional Monarchy. However it was gradually altered to what it is now. For a good time in the beginning, the peaceful protests earned Jordan a good image, compared to other violent oppression of protests elsewhere in the region. That changed though.

Eventually a group calling itself “Youth of March 24” was formed in Jordan. They became known by having a sit-in at the interior circle in Amman. They requested a Constitutional Monarchy and for the Jordanian Intelligence to be dismantled. Marouf al-Bakhit showed his hand and his influence in breaking the sit-in, and perhaps most likely releasing the “official” reason of the death of the martyr. During the sit-in and before it was broken, some Jordanians that passed by from some distance threw rocks and stones at those participating in the sit-in.

Why was this? There is evidence of government (or intelligence) influence with some of the Jordanians, as some of them were told that those in the sit-in were “Palestinian”. Racism kicked in during such an event. During the protests against the government there were ignorant rallies who expressed their “loyalty” toward King Abdullah II. That shows how much they didn’t understand what was going on, and how ignorant they are. However on March 25 would live in infamy. It was when the sit-in of the group was broken up.

One of the results was a Jordanian becoming a martyr from the hands of the Jordanian Gendarme. It was part of the “security” forces of Jordan, and its purpose was to protect foreign missions, like embassies and consulates, as well as provide escort for important leading foreign governmental officials. The martyr marked the first death since the protests in Jordan started. His name is Khairi Mustafa. The Gendarme beat him to death at the circle, while the official reason for his death was something completely different.


It was during the protests that I became more aware of stuff, like of the Royal Hashemite Family favoring some Jordanian Tribes over others. This shows with government support of development and developing areas in the north of Jordan. From that the Royal Hashemite Family favored the tribes in the north, over the tribes in the south, where it isn’t as well developed as the north. There were some incidents where government offices were attacked and burned in the south. It was no surprise. The reason why the Royal Hashemite Family favors some tribes over others in Jordan? Who does it benefit?

Certainly not the Jordanians. The Global Oligarchy, led by the U.S. and President Obama, have influence and are capable of manipulating the young western-educated King of Jordan. It is most likely that it was through their manipulation that the king favored tribes in the north over tribes of the south. That is kind of ironic though, since during the Great Arab Disgrace, the south of Jordan had some important role for the Hashemite family, yet now they’re being neglected. It is important to note that the Jordanian Tribes in the north are close to Syria, showing how the Global Oligarchy wants to keep an eye on Syria.


At first the protests in Jordan weren’t that well organized, but nonetheless there were still protests. Eventually it seemed that the Youth of March 24 took a leadership role, but since then the Muslim Brotherhood took over. The majority of Jordanians, whether natives or Palestinian, are Muslims. There would still be tension in Jordan, even if the protests decrease. The Parliamentary Elections late last year are a role in encouraging such protests that have happened in Jordan.

At first the Jordanians weren’t encouraged or motivated enough, but with Breeze Uprisings sweeping the Middle East, it was enough encouragement.


There were incidents, like the Jordan Intelligence closing a top Jordanian website that they didn’t like. The government at the time denied the Intelligence being involved in it, but no other department in Jordan had such cyber skill. Another incident to be noted is when the bodyguards of King Abdullah II shot at protesters in a university that King Abdullah II was visiting. Members of a tribe were protesting their living conditions and some other stuff.


It is interesting to know what and how official state media covered the protests in Jordan. Some times they had nonsense and other times they didn’t give the events or incidents they deserved. I don’t know if that was lack of knowledge or something else. It was during such protests and such times that I decided that JTV is a propaganda tool of the government mostly.


Groups and organizations that were once operating underground, like Hizb ut-Tahrir, came out in the open, organized and went along with successful protests and rallies of their own. There were other types of protests besides the protests against the government, like those for prisoners in Arabia. In the end the people of Jordan do NOT want to overthrow the Royal Hashemite Family; they just want better standard living conditions for themselves and their families.

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful…

On the 2nd of August 2010, Monday a Grad Missile from outside of Jordan landed in Aqaba, which is the only sea port in Jordan. The result was six injuries, with one of those injured becoming a martyr. The martyr had serious injuries and so he is at peace with Allah now insha’ Allah. The Zionist police claimed that the missile was from Sinai, which is the peninsula that is part of Egypt. At first a senior Egyptian official denied it being from Sinai. The Jordanian Authorities are still investigating into the matter. In my opinion, I accuse three sides of the terrorist attack on Aqaba.

The three sides are: The Zionists of Occupied Palestine, the Egyptian Government and the U.S., whether it is government or intelligence or both. Some time after the Egyptian official denied it being from Sinai, the Egyptians changed their position and mentioned that it was from Sinai. They also falsely accused some Palestinian faction from Gaza of it. At first they denied it was from Sinai, and some time afterward they not only “confirmed” it from Sinai, but also unjustly accused a side that is innocent of it. There is obvious contradiction from the Egyptian side, and why is that?

Is there the possibility that the Egyptian Government was pressured to change their story? If so, who pressured them? In my opinion the Egyptian Government was most likely pressured to change their story. As for who pressured them, it was obviously the U.S. and the Zionists without doubt. When Egypt denied it was from Sinai at first, they also mentioned strong security presence along the border with Gaza and occupied Palestine. All of a sudden there was no mention of the strong security presence afterward, as if it has vanished into thin air. The missile attack on Aqaba was the second missile attack on it.

There were injuries from the attack on Aqaba, yet the deceiving attack on a port in occupied Palestine had no injuries. In my view, that is a little bit suspicious. The Palestinian Authority and the U.N. both condemned the attack on Aqaba, but the U.S. mentioned that it was a “regrettable act”! What kind of a response is that?! Shouldn’t it have been more liked “terrorist act”? Is that evidence of guilt? Or of U.S. involvement in the attack against one of its allies in the Middle East? The timing of such an attack should be noticed and observed as well. Just a few months before the Zionists committed an act of piracy.

It was an act of piracy in International Waters where the Zionists martyred nine Turkish activists in cold blood. It was a time when the Palestinians of Gaza had sympathy from peoples of different nations. It also put the spotlight on Gaza and the illegal blockade on it. It rightfully put the Zionists in hot water. There was no condemnation of the attack on Aqaba from the Zionists, and just a day afterward the Zionists unjustly went after some trees on Lebanese land, which sparked a skirmish between the Zionist and Lebanese armies. It was the first time the Lebanese army had a fight with the Zionists.

It is important to mention that Hizbullah stayed out of the skirmish. The Zionist Prime Minister unjustly and falsely accused the Palestinian Government of the attack on Aqaba, with the Palestinian Government being Hamas in Gaza. That is illogical. It wouldn’t be in Hamas’ interest to do such a thing. That’s one thing. Another thing is that moving missiles from Gaza into Sinai wouldn’t be an easy job. The Egyptian security forces would soon discover such weapons and confiscate them.

If the Egyptian security forces had a strong presence on the border, there wouldn’t have been any chance or possibility for any Palestinian faction to do such an act without being discovered. It is obvious that the Egyptian Government cooperated with the Zionists and the U.S. in attacking Aqaba. The Egyptian security forces let the Zionists in easily with their weapons. As such, the Egyptian Government is responsible as much as the Zionists are. Such attacks on Aqaba not only show the vulnerability of the sea port, but it also shows that the Zionists idea of a Greater Israel hasn’t vanished.

A Greater Israel that would consume Jordan. I have learned that there are some Jordanian journalists who falsely suggested a group related to al-Qaeda was behind it. There is no such evidence of that for one thing. For another thing that is illogical. The Zionists have the most interest in doing such an attack on Jordan, however covertly it might be. The Zionists have time and time again tried to provoke Jordan into a war against it. Such attacks on Jordanian territory is strong provocation.

The Zionist Prime Minister falsely accusing Hamas is like saying that the assassination attempt on the Iranian President succeeded. The Zionists mention “provocations” against it, like flotillas and ships trying to break the naval blockade on Gaza, yet what about the numerous Zionist provocations against Jordan, whether it involves al-Quds (East Jerusalem) and al-Aqsa or other stuff? It is interesting that the Zionists are going after trees near the Lebanese border, especially a day after their terrorist attack on Aqaba. Afterward the Zionist Air Force increased its illusionary “raids” on South Lebanon.

First it was at medium altitudes and then at a wider larger scale at lower altitudes. There were more wide targets the Zionist Air Force raided illusionary in South Lebanon. It seems to me that the Zionists are getting impatient about there being no war, especially since their terrorist atrocities against Gaza almost two years ago. The main target of the terrorist attack was Aqaba. The attack on the sea port on occupied Palestine was just a diversion, just to unjustly accuse those innocent of it. It’s kind of silly that the Zionists of Occupied Palestine attacked one of their sea ports to turn attention away from them.

Accusing the Egyptian Government is a strong accusation and some might say it would divide the Arabs because of it. What I say is that the Egyptian Government is already dividing the Arabs and it deserves to be accused of it without any hesitation. I would request that those from the Jordanian side investigating it to make bold announcements, and to have bright and open minds. I also request that they shrug off any pressure to change or manipulate the truth behind the attack. There is propaganda and falsehood that the Egyptians announce and mention to some media sources.

I would request the Jordanian media and news to ignore such propaganda and falsehood. Last, but not least, I would request the Jordanian Leadership and Government to forge closer ties with Hamas to have better relations and better intelligence.

The 3rd of Rabi’ Al-Thani 1431

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful…

Prophet Muhammad foresaw that an Islamic Army would rise in Khorasan, and that the Mahdi would lead such an army to bring Jerusalem under Islamic Authority. I’ll mention them here, with them being translated in English.

“There will be many armies after me. You must join that army which will come from Khorasan… At the time, when the Muslim Umma will have abundance of wealth, gold and silver, the Muslims will be extremely belittled, weak and helpless…

“The enemy nations will invite each other to pounce upon them as hungry people invite one another for food… The Christians will demand their wanted people to which the Muslims will answer: ‘By Allah! They are our brothers. We will never hand them over!’… This will start the war…”

“One third of the Muslims will run away. Their tawba will never be accepted. One third will be killed, they will be the best shaheed near Allah. The remaining third will gain victory, until under the leadership of Imam Mahdi, they will fight against Kufr…

“At that time, you will be present in a plain of great mountains with plenty of trees. Armies carrying black flags will come from Khorasan. No power will be able to stop them and they will finally reach Jerusalem where they will erect their flags…

“If you see the black banners coming from Khorasan, go to them immediately, even if you must crawl over ice, because indeed amongst them is the Khaleef, Al-Mahdi”.

Prophet Muhammad tells us numerous things. One is that although the Umma would be rich in resources, we’d be weak and humiliated. Look at the current situation of the Umma. It is rich in resources, but we’re weak and being humiliated.

Nations fighting against Islam would invite each other to crush and weaken the Muslims. Such a thing is happening now in some parts of the world with the U.S. and Europe leading the way. However it is important to mention that Russia, China and India are also nations fighting against Islam.

Russia against the Muslims in the Caucasus Emirate, China against the Muslim Uighurs in East Turkestan and India against the Muslims in Kashmir. To a lesser known degree is Burma, with its Junta going after its minorities, especially the Rohingya Muslims.

Soon after 9.11, under the Bush Administration, the U.S. demanded that the Taliban Administration in Afghanistan hand over Osama bin Laden, thus referring back to “… The Christians will demand their wanted people…”

The Taliban refused. It’s important to mention that the Bush Administration demanded more than that from the Taliban Administration. The U.S. soon went to war afterward against the Taliban in Afghanistan.

There are three thirds mentioned, with one running away, a second becoming shaheed and the third will gain victory. The third running away is those who don’t support the Taliban and their Jihad and who support the invasion and war against the Taliban.

Some Muslim Nations are already known, but only Allah knows if there is more. The second third becoming shaheed means the Muslims in Afghanistan, whether they’re innocent civilians or Mujahideen. The last third is Taliban defeating NATO and the U.S. in Afghanistan. Not only that, but the last third would also be a victory for the Muslims supporting the Taliban and for the Islamic Umma in general.

Prophet Muhammad’s description of the place “… At that time, you will be present in a plain of great mountains with plenty of trees…” is a good description of Afghanistan. The Taliban already carry black banners. They aren’t the only Mujahid group carrying it though.

Khorasan was the name of the territory that is now Afghanistan. It is not part of Iran, as that territory was known as Bilad Faris. Afghanistan is known throughout its history that no foreign power ever conquered it.

Not only that, but it was partially because previous foreign powers that tried to conquer it and failed, either collapsed or were severely weakened. The first of such is Alexander the Great. It’s important to mention that Alexander the Great came before Prophet Muhammad and Islam.

As such Khorasan wasn’t under Islam, nor was its people Muslim. Yet the people still defeated Alexander. Another example was the British Empire. The Afghan people not only had the culture of fierce fighting, but Islam had blessed them by that time as well.

The British Empire declined after their long occupation, and eventually collapsed. The Soviet Union is a third example. It soon collapsed after the Mujahideen defeated it after several years of long fighting. At the time the Mujahideen were assisted by foreign intelligence like the CIA and ISI.

However it was such assistance that led the Mujahideen to battle one another after the Soviet occupation ended. With the Afghan people liberating themselves from the British and from the Soviets, they gained experience and became battle-hardened.

The U.S. and NATO entered a dangerous and humiliating end by invading Afghanistan. After the British defeat and Soviet defeat, one could only guess how the U.S. and NATO would end up after the Mujahideen in Afghanistan defeat them.

It’s important to mention that not only the U.S. and NATO would be defeated, but the Muslim Nations supporting them would be defeated as well. Battling the Afghan people and culture is not fighting a new and inexperienced people and culture; rather it is like fighting veterans of previous successive wars.

Allah has blessed the Afghan people with not only bringing the British Empire and the Soviet Union to its knees -both were superpowers during their times-, but also eventually destroying NATO insha’ Allah and bringing the U.S. to its knees. Domestic events in the U.S. are helping the U.S. be brought to its knees.

Being blessed by Jihad from Allah, only Allah would know how the Jihad would continue in Afghanistan after the U.S. and NATO are defeated. The Islamic Administration to come would be too busy putting Afghanistan back onto its legs for several years perhaps.

As such the Jihad would be unofficially and temporarily suspended in Afghanistan. I could be wrong in that though, and only Allah knows.

Within the last few days Meshaal, as the leader of Hamas, signed an agreement which is both illegal and unethical. I have read a number of articles about him and this agreement. My initial response was one of anger. I wanted to speak out against him ,but decided against it because I thought of it as an internal Hamas issue and a Palestinian issue.

But the more I read about it and the more I learn about it, the more angry I became. I have come to the conclusion that I was wrong. This agreement is not just an internal Hamas issue, nor an internal Palestinian issue-but an issue of The Islamic Nation. It is an issue that ALL Muslims have a right to speak on!

Why do I say this? Because, Palestine is a territory of The Islamic Nation. It’s borders are between the ocean and The Jordan River. The Israeli State is an illegal state that has absolutely no legitimacy whatsoever. The U.N. partition of Palestine was conditioned upon the The Palestinians accepting it. They rejected such a partition. Only with their acceptance of the partition will The Israeli State become “legally” legitimate. The second reason is because Al- Aqsa Masjid (Al Aqsa Mosque)is in Palestine. Al-Aqsa has been-and is continuing to be- threatened with destruction.

For the last few weeks I have been reading different articles about Meshaal. Meshaal is from The West Bank. Meshaal is calling for a change in strategy. He is calling for adopting non-violent protests as a replacement for armed resistance. (Non-violent protests have proven to be ineffective with The Zionists. Fatah has used such strategy in The West Bank and the results are the loss of land and lives. Armed resistance is the only way to stop the aggression of The Zionists. Any other way has been proven to be impractical.) Hamas officials in Gaza have both the right-and the responsibility- to reject the agreement. They have every right in the world to refuse cooperation in its implementation. Since the agreement involves Gaza, the cooperation of the officials of Gaza are vital to it’s implementation.

Hamas should continue to work for the liberation of all of Palestine through armed resistance. Any other way has been proven to be totally ineffective.

As for Abbas, he has proven himself to be a puppet of those who want to destroy Al-Aqsa Masjid (Al-Aqsa Mosque). He has proven himself to be a puppet of the global oligarchy- which includes the leadership of both The U.S. and The European Union. It is clear that the global oligarchy wants Al-Aqsa Masjid to be destroyed. It is clear that Abbas is their puppet. Others in the “interim government” may be technocrats, but Abbas is not! The Zionists are in the process of: stealing all of the West Bank; evicting all Muslims from Jerusalem, and destroying Al-Aqsa Masjid. Abbas and the leaders of Arab countries want peace with The Zionists??? All of them-including King Abdullah of Jordan- are puppets of the global oligarchy!

Until now Gaza has been a stronghold of Palestinian resistance-unlike The West Bank. Does Meshaal want to open up Gaza to The Zionists -like The West bank?

Here are some quotes from articles that I have read:

“Meshaal might be able to put down the unprecedented rebellion against him, but would need the good will and cooperation of Hamas leaders in Gaza to make the agreement work.” (“Public rift as Hamas strongman in Gaza rejects unity deal”)

“On Sunday, the head of the bloc of Hamas legislators in Gaza, Ismail al-Ashkar, alleged that Fatah has not carried out promised confidence building measures, such as releasing Hamas loyalists held in the West Bank.” (“Public rift as Hamas strongman in Gaza rejects unity deal”)

“MPs of the Hamas majority in the Palestinian parliament called on Thursday for the scrapping of a reconciliation accord with Fatah on constitutional grounds.

“After examining the question of Mahmud Abbas taking on the premiership as well as the presidency” and consultation with judicial experts, such a scenario was found to be contrary to the Basic Law, 31 MPs said in a statement.” (“Hamas MP’s call for scrapping of Fatah Deal”)

“Meshaal has been based in Damascus since 2001, fearing for his safety and hoping to avoid the restrictions on his movement in Gaza. He has been the chief leader of Hamas’ political wing since 2004.” (“Hamas political chief to step down”)

“Based on a survey by the Swedish Committee for Afghanistan (SCA), 80% of schools for girls located in villages across Afghanistan and controlled by the Taliban are still operating. Pia Karlsson, Education Adviser of SCA, mentioned 85% of the girls are still going to school. In the Province of Kunduz, which is under the Taliban rule, 122 schools for girls are operating, with 390 registered female teachers!”

Afghanistan and Taliban are the main target in the anti-Muslim media to attack Islam and Muslims as though Taliban are the only Muslim in the world!

All the women (western feminists) who criticized the Burqa (their traditional dress), were silent when 2 millions Afghan citizens were dead due to the Russian bombs, they were silent when 500,000 Afghan citizens were handicapped because of landmines, and they were quiet when thousands of Afghan women were raped before the Taliban came to power.

General Hamid who had lived for some years under the Taliban, said: “There was never a campaign directed at allowing the beating of women and there was no prohibition for women to pursue education. There was only restriction on mixed-gender education.”

There are so many fabrications on ‘respected’ websites in the internet about the ‘suffering’ of Afghan women, while at the same time there isn’t any mention of date, name, location or any other data that could be verified. Hamid Gul said that he always noticed there were more women than men in the streets or in the markets during the Taliban era.

The Afghan who protested in the west were those who originated from the Khalq and Parcham factions who were Communists. They were not representatives of the majority of the Afghan society. The Taliban had to keep an eye on these communist women with an extra tight measure to ensure they would not cause any discord or troubles.

Women only have to wear the burqa in the streets, whereas at home they are free to wear any dress they like. Munur, a nurse said: “Women in the hospitals seldom wear the burqa and even the jilbab when there are no men in there.”

During the pre-Taliban era, there were only 350 beds for women in the hospitals across Kabul. In August 2001, there were 950 beds in the hospitals which were specific for women only. Some of the hospitals that were exclusive for women were Rabia Balkhi Hospital, The Red Crescent of Kuwait Health Center and The Health Clinic for Infectious Disease.

There were also 32 clinics for women and children. Additionally, the women also received the services provided by the ICRC and the Sanday Gal Orthopaedic Centers. Only female doctors and nurses were working in the hospitals and clinics to give the healthcare services to the female patients.

However the Sun, Daily Express, New York Times, and all the journalists never report this story, the same goes for BBC, CNN, Fox News, etc. This is part of the campaign of lies so that the world populations would be against the Taliban. They lied that the women could not work, the women could not go out of the house, to go to school, or even to go to hospital, but all the above mentioned facts proved otherwise.
