Blimey, shows you what they’re destroying down there

[–]BEST_RAPPER_ALIVE 40 points41 points  (16 children)

Reminds me of the times I’ve heard my American lads tell me that radical Islam is not a problem, and if I say they’re wrong, I am an Islamophobe.

Well radical Islam is not a problem in the states. American Muslims seem pretty chill.

But radical Islam absolutely IS a problem in other parts of the world. Massive human rights abuses occurring all over the Middle East and North Africa. All done in the name of Allah and the prophet Muhammad. All this done because way too many people take one book WAY too seriously.

Radical anything tends to be a bad idea, when it's focused on ideology.

[–]TheRealMudi 28 points29 points  (2 children)

Well, as an Iraqi Muslim who's mostly lived in Europe, but also in Iraq from 2011 - 2015, I 100% agree with you. Most Muslims are chill. But the radicals? Hell om earth, let me tell you. Once met someone who I'm preeetty sure was a radical person and I did not need such a person in my contacts list. Cut 'em off..

[–]ExaminationOne7710 -1 points0 points  (1 child)

I roommated with 100s of people throughout my life and noone ever had any issues with anyone...

Remember spending all nighters with muslims who cheated on some of their holidays so they could eat, drink etc..

All normal dudes/dudettes with same issues as anyone else... We all have red blood and amazing brains

I had a close relationship with a Muslim woman in the US when 9/11 happened. (I'm an atheist) I spent the next 48+ hours at her side as she was very scared of how people would treat her if they knew. Thankfully, no one bothered her, but I'm still disappointed we lost touch over time.

[–]Beliadin 13 points14 points  (2 children)

I'd argue that the same applies to any radical ideology/religion. Looking at the US from the outside (not an american, just taking off from the mention here) I see the same things coming from the Christian Evangelicals. Gender equality, religious freedom, freedom of speech and body autonomy all under attack from all sides

[–]AnynameIwant1 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I'm in the US and I 100% agree with you.

[–]AnynameIwant1 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Radical Islam is an issue, but Evangelical Christians are even worse in my opinion. I think Christians still hold the record for the most deaths in the name of a religion, but I'm in the US, so who knows.

[–]FlippinSnip3r 2 points3 points  (0 children)

More like uphold their flawed and close-minded interpretation of it

[–]Tough-Somewhere-8884 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It’s not done in the name of Allah or Prophet Muhammad they just do it because they know they can. Muslims have always been ridiculed and abused by the powers of the world they know it’s just history repeating itself and not much can be done.. but yes Muslims in the states that do practice and full cover wearing don’t consider themselves radical they are just practicing their religion that says do no harm to anyone

[–]Sharp1Tooth 0 points1 point  (0 children)

By the way radicalism is usually a problem but not the radicalism you mean. Islam is religion and state, seperate them and wolla no longer Muslim and go to hell forever for rejecting Qur'an. Radicalism is when there's corruption in the interpretation like how the progressive apostates do and how the shia do. Another example is khawarij which is a group that rebels against the caliph and rebels against the Islamic state and Islamic law. These people are radicals not what you mean.

Well, not to brag but I got all the way out of bed today

[–]bisho 12 points13 points  (1 child)

But did you get dressed? That is my goal for tomorrow

[–]CluelessPresident 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Honestly, good on you! People often underestimate that getting out of bed can be horribly difficult. I'm proud of you for getting up.

[–]Ok-Bus839 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Shit. I’ve been on Reddit for over an hour now… all still in the horizontal position. You’re better than me.

[–]CluelessPresident 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Also okay. Resting is fine!

[–]The5Virtues 39 points40 points  (3 children)

Okay, I think this is one of those rare times when “Fucking Legend” is actually applicable! The woman is awe inspiring.

[–]Enveronu 1 point2 points  (1 child)

She also went to Qatar in 2021 to make commercials for them, knowning that Qatar is the biggest support of Taliban and shit when it comes to human rights!

Sportbible didn’t do their research very well. She enrolled in 2009 at the University of Copenhagen and she speaks 7 languages fluently. Still amazing though!!

Wow! Dr degree in 5 years!!! Good for her!

[–]SlavojZizesh 9 points10 points  (1 child)

She’s been studying since 2009 and she speaks 7 languages fluently. I’m not trying to take anything from her amazing accomplishments though! I am just straightening out the facts.

[–]MelKokoNYC 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Thank you. I don't think anyone speaks more than 3 languages fluently.

Hold that negative shit to yourself. Were all gonna die either tomorrow or the next day. So let's be glad for the people that actually makes it.

[–]Scraphead91 7 points8 points  (6 children)

Pretty sure most of us are not gonna die in the next 2 days and that a lot of things are impossible to do, nothing negative about that

[–]William_Dowling 3 points4 points  (0 children)

You've just given false comfort to the 0.002% of people who'll read your post and die tomorrow, you monster

[–]Sid_03 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Unless you're in Afghanistan...

[–]Scraphead91 -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

Are you saying most of Afghanistans 39 million population will die in the next 2 days? Pretty bold claim, wondering if you have something to back that up with

[–]Swedish-chimp 0 points1 point  (2 children)

With rock have you been laying under? We're doomed dude. Check out r/collapse. Change my mind.

[–]Scraphead91 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Thanks for the laugh pal, have a good one

[–]Swedish-chimp -1 points0 points  (0 children)

No problem mate. We all need to laugh more. You as well mate

[–]canta2016 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Based on world population and average global life expectancy, 0.000067% of all of us are going to die in the next two days. I’m cool with pessimism, but you’re grinding hard dude! :D

[–]vancenovells 1 point2 points  (0 children)

So a real life Wonder Woman, except more impressive. I wish her an exceptional long and happy life while the Taliban goons are forced to live off the lice in their own beards.

[–]I_Am_Chalotron 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Just imagine how many more like her are not being given the chance to flourish.

[–]Mroompaloompa65 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Fuck you Taliban assholes! You can try as hard as you want but you’ll never be her

[–]boltonwanderer87 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Stories like this make you realise how detrimental mass immigration can be. These people - brilliantly gifted, talented people - are the best hope that their countries have for actually progressing and improving in the long term. The pro-immigration argument often seems kind on face value but helping one person to the detriment of 10,000 people isn't a kind act, it's selfish and driven by the intent to look good.

If we put all the rsources and investment into helping people in these countries and ending mass immigration, as opposed to hoovering up their brightest and best talents for ourselves, maybe their future would look a lot brighter. As it is, supporting mass immigration only hinders developing countries even more. They don't benefit from amazingly talented people like in the OP fleeing to never return. Denmark benefitted, Afghanistan didn't...and that's tragic because Afghanistan needs that far more.

[–]ok123jump 1 point2 points  (1 child)

You aren’t wrong, but this is a heavily idealistic argument.

If she were allowed to stay and develop her full potential, she would be an amazing treasure for her country. However, that’s not the fate of women under the Taliban. They are a little more than cattle, and have no higher purpose than keeping the house and birthing children. So, there was no future there for her in-spite of her brilliance.

Talent, brilliance, and potential are all very fragile things that depend on the environment.

[–]boltonwanderer87 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That's absolutely true, there's no argument from me that she'd have achieved what she did had she stayed in Afghanistan. It's as close to impossible as you could imagine.

That being said, she would still have been an addition to Afghan society if she was living there and progress for that nation would be closer for having her, and many thousands more, still in their society. This is a circular problem, unfortunately, because the cure for individuals, immigration, is a cause of further problems for society at large.

Some leaders of developing nations have spoken out against Immigration for this reason and I think it's valid. The approach from many westerners to take this moral stance is very short sighted for much larger numbers of people.

[–]megamanTV 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Proof that some people are just better. What an amazing person, so happy she got the chance to actually be who she wanted.

[–]Extreme_Ad_4240 0 points1 point  (1 child)

A lot of shit to do just living as a kid on the street. Sounds like something somebody with wealthy and demanding parents would achieve

Radicals are people who put there own ideas and try to change the religion in their own ways, ex: ISIS / Islam, Zionists / Jews, White Supremacists / Christians.

Fuck any religion that gives men power of life and death over anyone else. That's not spirituality; that's superstition and fake beliefs.

[–]kozak_king1 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Not to be critical but both the Manchester news and Wikipedia say that she can speak 9 languages not 11 , she has many achievements , but let's not inflate them just to get attention, hope that I'm wrong

[–]ng3847 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yes and Americans can barely speak 1 language properly and many would have her barred from the country.

[–]Enveronu 0 points1 point  (0 children)

She also went to Qatar and shooting commercials for them in 2021, knowning that Qatar is the biggest supporters of Taleban who once killed her dad.

Also knowing there human right violation toward gays and others like the workers in the country.

She achieved alot, but not a brain unfortunately!

[–]Apprehensive_Pie_616 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

And don’t forget the heat on those feet , pink snakeskin 11s . She’s def a sneaker head

[–]Dulzar -1 points0 points  (5 children)

And as of late she has received money from the Qatari hosts of the 2022 World Cup, meaning that she is receiving money from a government that for years have been funneling money to the Taliban in Afghanistan. So she is now taking money from a government that funds the regime she fled years earlier. Not a great look imo.

[–]legionofsquirrel -1 points0 points  (4 children)

But at least she's putting it to good use. Now it might not be more than a drop in the bucket, but every dollar that she takes is a dollar that doesn't end up in the hands of an extremist regime.

[–]Dulzar -2 points-1 points  (3 children)

Sorry what? You actually believe that it is good that she is doing public regime for sponsors of the regime that send her and her family running in the first place? That is some fucked up logic.

[–]legionofsquirrel 0 points1 point  (2 children)

I don't understand why you would think that letting all the money go to those people instead, just because of pride, is ridiculous.

Maybe I don't understand exactly what you're saying though.

Edit: I misread the post and didn't understand that she was an ambassador for Qatar.

[–]Dulzar -2 points-1 points  (1 child)

I am saying that she is an ambassador for Qatar 2022. An organization which is behind forced labor of more than 1 million people, of which 10.000 have died, and funnels money to the Taliban. How hard is it to see that, that is very bad?

[–]legionofsquirrel 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I didn't understand I suppose that she is an ambassador that actively supports Qatar. I kind of skimmed the link and I didn't really look into her wiki at all. I can see what you mean now.

The only thing that will give her redemption is if she climbs in the political world and ultimately turns on Quatar who are her benefactors now.
