    Afghanistan (I) - various reports

                 Afghanistan and China's relationship has come to the fore, ever since the United States withdrew from the country this past August. As international humanitarian aid stopped flowing to Afghanistan, China had been one of the few to step in with - limited - pledges. And it is not clear how much Beijing will engage, given the ongoing security problem as ISIS-K steps up attacks to disrupt Taliban control. So how durable is this China-Afghanistan relationship?

                 Afghanistan is one of the poorest countries in the world. But there is one sure-fire way to make money there - the drug trade. The Taliban is heavily involved in the opium and heroin trade - with money funding their recent takeover of power in Afghanistan.

                 When the Taliban were in last in power they banned girls’ education, destroying schools and murdering teachers to prevent girls being educated. This time the Taliban told secondary schools to open only for boys, but say their restrictions on girls studying are "temporary" in order to ensure learning environments are "safe" for them. But some schools have opened for girls. The BBC's World Affairs Editor, John Simpson, met female students and their teacher to find out what's happening to girls' education in Afghanistan.

                 Since first taking power in Afghanistan in the 1990s, the Taliban have been involved in the mass production and distribution of opium, which is extracted from the country's seemingly infinite amount of poppy fields. In fact, the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime estimates over 80% of global opium and heroin supplies are sourced from Afghanistan. The gross worth of Afghan opiate exports is estimated at between $1.5 and $3 billion per year. Forbes spoke with two experts in the area of Afghanistan's illicit drug trade to learn more about how the Taliban's cartel became so wealthy and what could happen to drug exports now that the organization has retaken power in the country.

                 Now that the Taliban are about to run a whole country, experts are wondering what their sources of income will be and how they will use them. German expert Hans-Jakob Schindler risks a look ahead.

    Taliban’s rights decree on women silent on education, work

    Kabul | Dec 3, 2021 A Taliban decree on the rights of women Friday focused mainly on marriage and post-wedding but remained silent if females would be allowed to get the education and work under the rule of the Islamists. “A woman is not a property but a noble and free human being.

    On the Taliban's recent declaration of women's marital rights

    The Taliban is by no means a moderate organization. They are a militant radical Islamic group. However, they claim to have changed, and while time will be the ultimate judge as to the truth of such a claim, this recent development has provided some validity, if very little. They have made a decree state that no woman is to be treated as property, and all marriages must be consentual. For a group of their kind, this is a major step forward. Especially compaired to other movements, such as Al-Qaeda, Boko Haram, Hezbollah, and ISIS, as well as some nations, such as Pakistan and India, this is oddly liberal of them. Now, this does not account for the fact that there is still little news on women's right to hold a job and education. So far, we know the Taliban plans on letting women continue working when they have put policies of segregation in place. We also know that some all-girls schools have been allowed to continue operating. While this does lend to their claim of changing, many people are still skeptical, and rightly so. It was members of the Taliban that yelled at a female journalist when she dared to enter the same room as them, although that has yet to happen to day, to my knowledge at least. Pehaps there is hope that they will allow women to retain their rights, and perhaps even the same for religious, poltical, and racial minorities. We already know that the Taliban allowed the Shiite minority to celebrate the holiday of Muharram with relative peace, especially compared to how that usually went under the former government. As for me, I will remain causiously optimistic. I know they're not a very accomidating group, but they say they've changed, and so far seem to have. Ultimately though, only God can know, and we can only wait and see.
