Montréal vs. ROQ En Vidéos Québec

Discussion très intéressante à sur le fossé entre Montréal et les régions et sur l'identité québécoise:

Au sujet de l'identité… En ce qui me concerne, je ne suis pas québécois, ni canadien-français ou canadien tout court. Je suis un individu qui en aucun moment ne désire être le porte-flambeau d'une quelconque culture. Bref, je suis un individu qui existe pour et par lui-même et non pas par ou pour la société.

"Every person's life is theirs by right. An individuals life can and must only belong to himself, no to any society or community, or he is then but a slave. It is treason against mankind to hold a knife to a man's throat and dictate how he must live his life. No society is more important than the individuals who compose it, or else you ascribe supreme importance, not to man, but to any notion that strikes the fantasy of that society at a never ending cost of lives. Reason and reality are the only means to just laws; mindles wishes, if given sovereignty, become deadly masters."

Taliban campaign targets girls' schools

The notice pinned to the board outside the Mohammed Hussain Maila girls' school in Dara Adamkhel was uncompromising: "We have decided to bomb the school building. If any of the students shows up and dies as a result, she will be responsible for her own death." […]

Across the border in Afghanistan, the Taliban's antipathy towards the education of girls is well-documented, and has led to the murders of at least 61 teachers in the past 18 months and the razing of 183 schools. […]

"We always wanted our daughter to acquire education, but we are scared," said Baaz Khan, a businessman, who took his 11-year-old daughter from the school. […]

A decree issued last week by Mufti Khalid Shah, a religious leader, said: "All these NGOs are working on the agenda of Zionists; it is a duty of every Muslim to destroy their offices, attack their vehicles and to kill its members."

He added: "It is permissible to use weapons of mass destruction against these -infidels."
