Oh, many Muslims certainly (and unfortunately) have backwards views. Indeed, the problem is when one is making hasty generalizations about all Muslims.

Yep. Indeed, it's certainly an extremely massive shame that such practices still exist anywhere worldwide right now.

Are we bringing in many immigrants from Afghanistan? I've not heard that we were bringing in any more than we'd normally do, which isn't that many to begin with. Feel free to prove me wrong on that. But it's important that you understand that not every country in the Middle East is culturally the same. Just as the US and France are both liberal democracies in the Western world, no person would ever view them as being the same. No informed person, anyway.

Afghanistan is a ****ed up nation, though. I'd say it's among the absolute worst. Up there with Iran and Saudi Arabia (our allies...).

Because according to Hillary, girls aren't yet women and thus aren't entitled to women's rights?

Besides, Bill treated her like a dog and a dog is only slihhtly up from a goat so what is the problem?

Good point. Maybe in a hundred years give or take.

In the mean time, let them get up to date in their own nations. Or Europe.

In Idaho, there's a case of 8 year Syrian boys attacking a 5 year old American girl.

The joys of Obama's policies coming to a neighborhood near you.

I hope the 8 year old boys are in some form of juvenile prison at great cost to their parents.

goat provides food and milk. The girl provides sex for old man. Dad was not benefiting from her. So he traded her.
