Poisoning Schoolgirls In Afghanistan

The girls were lined up outside their school in northeast Afghanistan waiting to go in when an odor permeated the school grounds sickening them. More than 80 were hospitalized for treatment.

It was the third such recent poisoning of schoolgirls in Afghanistan, a country where many, the Taliban included, feel that girls shouldn't be educated.

Another sad example of extremism keeping people down and under control.

It's amazing the lengths some societies will go to to deny women their rights. Still, what can you expect from a religion that claims that a woman only has half the brain of a man.
My theory is that these are so damn afraid that women, once they gain any power, will put them in their places and stop the stupidity that allows them to kill plunder and pillage.
