On Friday, the Federal Migration Service told VOR that a young Afghan woman who converted from Islam to Christianity received a residence permit in Russia. Now, she can stay and work here. Earlier, Russia granted the girl temporary asylum, as she faced capital punishment in Afghanistan. Ruya Ivaz Ali,19, came to Russia from Afghanistan through Tajikistan with her family in 2011, but later her parents fled and abandoned her.
A spokesman for the Federal Migration Service told VOR that Ruya Ivaz Ali, a young Afghan woman detained in Russia, obtained release from a detention centre, adding that the young Muslim who converted to Christianity would receive temporary resident status soon. Russia offered the 19-year-old refuge since she might face capital punishment if repatriated to Afghanistan, after having converted to Christianity. Ruya moved to Russia together with her family in mid-2011 through Tajikistan, where they’d lived for several years. Her father lodged a plea for refugee status with Russia, but was denied it. When Ruya’s family suddenly vanished, the girl found herself alone in a foreign country, so, she turned to the government for help. She applied for refugee status on religious grounds. Now, the young Afghan Christian plans to look for a job in Russia.

This is what the USA supports in Afghanistan. All those who support the war there prop up a vicious theocracy almost as bad as the one it replaced. Note well that the Republican Party supports this war wholeheartedly… you see, profits trump freedom… they always have, for them. After all, the Democratic Republic of Afghanistan was FAR closer to American ideals than Karzai’s Islamist thugocracy is. Had America not intervened, the rebellion would’ve been contained (at least), if not crushed. Afghanistan would be a happier place… especially, for women.
This present situation is the poisonous legacy of Slobberin’ Ronnie and George W Bush. Welcome to the most vicious form of Islamism… brought to you by the USA and cheered on by the likes of Chuck Norris. Makes you wonder about the Republicans, doesn’t it? Yes, Virginia, money IS that important to them. They’ll stamp on anyone’s freedom to get it. Look at Afghanistan…
