Aisha aka 'Bibi'Dear Ones:
Once in a while we are blessed with a heart-warming story of GOOD TRIUMPHING OVER EVIL. No matter what our spiritual backgrounds may or may not be, all people of GOOD WILL rejoice over this young Afghan woman's story.
Many people (famous and rich politicians and hollywood types now, largely) are now involved and are to be thanked and praised for the help they have given this young woman whom we've all heard about for a while now.
But unlike those with boots on the floor in Afghanistan, some of THESE are 'johnnycomelatelies'.
BUT IT WAS THE UNITED STATES MILITARY WHO SAVED HER LIFE & INITIALLY 'NURSED HER FOR TWO MONTHS!!! Read about it here: "Update on Bibi Aisha March 17, 2010 http://www.womenforafghanwomen.org/front_lines.php
"Bibi Aisha arrived at our shelter on November 15, 2009. She was sold at the age of 10 by her father to a married man, a Talib. He kept her in the stable with the animals until she was 12 (when she got her first menstrual period). At the age of 12 he married her. From the day that she arrived in his house, she was beaten regularly by this man and his family. Sometimes she was beaten so badly that she couldn’t get up for days. Six months ago before she came to us, she was beaten so badly by her husband that she thought that she was going to die. She ran away and went to the neighbor’s house. The neighbor took to her to the police.
Since Uruzgan doesn’t have a women’s prison, the police took her to Kandahar and kept her in jail because she had run away from home.
She spent four months in the Kandahar women’s prison. After four months, her father came and took her out of prison. He took her back to Uruzgan and gave her back to her husband.
Her husband once more beat her to the brink of death, and then he cut her nose and ears off. He did this because she had brought shame to the family by running away. Then he took her to the mountains and left her there to die. She was rescued by the U.S forces. They kept her in the military clinic for 2 months until her wounds healed. Almost everyday, her father came to the American base and wanted to take her back with him."

I FEEL THAT IT IS IMPORTANT to GIVE U.S. SERVICE MEMBERS and SUPPORT PERSONNEL the CREDIT they are DUE for their COMPASSIONATE and HEROIC ACTS!
Aisha's story is the TALIBAN in action.
THIS is 'SHARIA LAW' in action.
THIS TYPE OF MUTILATION occurs in Islamic countries such as PAKISTAN and AFGHANISTAN...and in IRAN and elsewhere, as well.
It even occurs in so-called 'civilized countries', too...though no one wants to acknowledge or talk about it.
Considering how ENDEMIC the spread of SHARIA-TALIBAN MENTALITY has become in the World today, including in the WEST, we do well to take note of ABOMINATIONS such as those perpetuated against AISHA.
'Bibi' is representative of the treatment women have received at the hands of the men in their lives from the beginning of time!
Who KNOWS how MANY WOMEN in the world today are abused and killed by Taliban Muslims? The numbers would likely numb the mind.
Even today, this MINDSET is getting an ever-stronger foothold in our country, and we'd better get wise to it.
We need do is LOOK AT FRANCE and ENGLAND to see where the U.S.A. is HEADED absent the STRENGTH, RESOLVE and SUCCESS of all men and women of GOOD WILL ALL OVER THE WORLD.
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/asia/afghanistan/8059872/Taliban-oppression-poster-girl-unveils-new-nose.htmlThe mutilated Afghan girl showed the world her 'new nose' recently. God Bless her benefactors and especially her SURGEON HEROES and OTHER MEDICAL PERSONNEL who have made her happier than anyone thought possible.
It really does warm the heart to see actors and politicos 'doing good', yes. I just pray that the next time some of them are quick to 'BASH OUR MILITARY', they will step back and reflect a moment. Let them reflect upon the GOOD and COMPASSIONATE NATURES of those who serve.
As I've always said, "God sometimes uses both the MOST LIKELY and UNLIKELY candidates for His Good Purposes in the most AMAZING ways!"
With Love in Christ
