"Time will tell whether the preachers' message will prove effective and discourage women from resorting to fuel and matches to get their message across. What's certain is that the traditional path of "patience and forbearance" has lost its appeal to Afghan women."

The 'traditional' path has lost its appeal? What about almost thirty years of foreign invasion and occupation? This writer, and others such as Khaled Diab, are pathologically incapable of even acknowledging the existence of foreign occupation and intervention in their countries. The fault must lie in these 'backward' peoples rather than be attributed to the West. The logic of colonialism is internalised, defended and then championed.
