Afghan women's organization in "Miss Earth" show

category international | miscellaneous | news report author Tuesday November 11, 2003 11:28author by James McKennaauthor email jimmymac61 at hotmail dot com Report this post to the editors

The founder of a Afghan women's rights organization, 23-year-old Vida Samadzai, was awarded the "beauty for a cause" award on Sunday by the Miss Earth competition in Manilla.

Samadzai paraded down the catwalk in a red bikini to ,"raise awareness of the plight of women and children in her homeland." Yes, that's what she was trying to raise!

she was cited by the judges for "symbolizing the newfound confidence, courage and spirit of today's women" and for "representing the victory of women's rights and various social, personal and religious struggles."

I would like to make people aware that, as Afghan women, we are talented, intelligent and beautiful," said Vida .

Carousel Productions ,Miss World Holdings and other US companies are behind the organising of the Miss Earth show which targeted 60 countries for contestants in their "Beauty with a cause" crusade. I wonder how many handshakes from the Pentagon or the White House such propagandists must be?

Samadzai, who is studying in California since 1996 could face prosecution if she returns to her native country, a senior Afghan justice official. Fazel Ahmad Manawi , deputy head of Afghanistan's Supreme Court in Kharzais American Puppet Show Government, said "I hope that this lady regrets her actions," but wouldn't say what charges Samadzai could face.

Meanwhile a plague of kidnapping and rapes rages in the US controlled areas of Afghanistan where Northern Alliance thugs are up to their old tricks . Grown women are being routinely raped by rota and children as young as nine are being brutally raped and killed by Opium addicted "friends of America".
