@RaisedtoWalk Jordan Peterson is going to church now? This whole thing with atheists/agnostics giving instructions to Christians is one of the weirdest things about this apocalyptic culture we are in. No. This is NOT the point of the church. Why are you promoting this @RFupdates?

@ExileTVNetwork A Taliban commander has been married four times in two years

According to reports, Malaqand Agha, one of the commanders of the Taliban group in Kunduz province, who is responsible for the suicide attacks of this group in the northeast, has been married four times in the last two years.

The sources who spread this report say that Malaqand Agha forced young Kundzi women to marry by force and threats.

Before this, there were reports of several Taliban officials forcing women to marry.

In one of these cases, Syed Khosti, the former spokesman of Sirajuddin Haqqani, was accused of rape and forced marriage by a woman in Kabul, but the Taliban not only did not punish Khosti, they appointed him in charge of the group’s orphanages.

@Punk319 The Taliban have turned the building of the only local radio station in Panjshir into a military base:

@Larkabroad Afghans- There is no SIM card available for purchase in the Qatar facility. You will not be given a phone. Bring your own smartphone 📱. The camp has free Wi-Fi available for the Afghan guests to use.

@AustraliaAFG This is the current situation of Afghans who have applied for humanitarian visas of Australia. Some of them have been arrested by the police today and they will deported to Afghanistan. We request the Australian
@dfat
to process our applications as soon as possible. Hon.
@AlboMP

@RaisedtoWalk Or fake stories
== Do not use fake documents, no matter what.

@SIGARHQ USAID: Taliban’s restrictions on women working w/ NGOs not affected Turquoise Mountain Trust beneficiaries because most women work from home. USAID stated Taliban officials voiced support for women’s home-based enterprises, especially to manufacture carpet

@AtRiskTeachers Afghan #BritishCouncil teachers enabled learners across 🇦🇫. Sadly, when the Taliban took power, we left them behind. Now they live in hiding in 🇦🇫, or stuck in hotels in 🇵🇰. @RishiSunak , over 2 years ago @GOVUK
promised to get our allies to safety. Still waiting.

@Punk319 Suicides have been on the rise since the Taliban returned to power. This, in itself, should be an eye-opener to the world. @RepMcCaul @timburchett @SR_Afghanistan

@StephanAJensen 🇦🇫Our allies have been left behind in Afghanistan for so long that Hollywood has had time to make *two* feature films about saving them.

But in real life thousands are still hiding from the Taliban trying to kill them, with no hope of tangible help.

How do we sleep at night?

@SIGARHQ #USAID told SIGAR it does not get involved in any implementing partner discussions or negotiations with Taliban authorities and USAID does not require a final executed copy of the MOU

@RaisedtoWalk And you never know when the person in front of you will have information and KNOW you are lying. They will let you continue to see how far you will go.
== I get lied to … a lot actually. I still help the people who lie to me, bc I understand the circumstances and the fear behind it. But I don’t trust the person that’s lied to me & tell others helping me that person is not honest & to question & check everything they say
== (👆 feel the EXACT same way about the @HumbleISD school board)
==But that’s me. I am helping bc there are human beings that need help.

Immigration officials are looking for reasons to deny cases. If you lie to them or embellish your story, your case will be denied

@Larkabroad If you are married, have your marriage certificate (Nikha Khat) with English translation.

Do not pay anyone money or bribe for relocation flight to Qatar. Only trust CARE team for your flight. The email address should end with: ” @State.gov”

@Larkabroad Have patience with the relocation flight process. SIV cases that are at the Interview Ready Stage, meaning that you have submitted DS-260 application and are ready for the interview, will be contacted and invited for relocation flight to Qatar by the CARE team.

@Larkabroad More SIV reminders:
The tazkira is especially important for your children as it is their birth certificate and shows that the child belongs to you.

@RaisedtoWalk Sounds like something you’d hear about in Afghanistan

29:05- Proposed xenophobic tax in Florida & Oklahoma

@RaisedtoWalk This is not only literally insane, but the definition of redneck. Does anyone that came up w/this idea actually DO anything other than collect a paycheck? How many businesses & nonprofits would this affect? 1.5% is what CC processing co charge
