Afghan Pedophilia: A way of life, say U.S. soldiers and journalists
examiner.com ^ | 1-19-12 | Jim Kouri

Apologists say that Bacha Bazi or 'Boy Play' is a very old cultural practice in Afghanistan and part of that nation's mainstream.

Citing the Afghanistan strategy review, Vice President Joe Biden reported "great progress" in the counterterrorism effort that has significantly degraded al-Qaeda and the Taliban, particularly their leadership. Lagging behind, he said, is progress on the counterinsurgency front – eliminating terrorist safe havens in Pakistan and building a stable Afghan government.

However, not once did Biden – nor Defense Secretary Leon Panetta -- mention Afghanistan's dirty secret – a large number of pedophiles and pederasts among the Afghan male population.

Pedophilia is a widely-accepted practice in southern Afghanistan, where "boys are given to older men for the sexual gratification of the elder and the sexual education of the child," say many returning U.S. troops.

Afghans say pedophilia is most prevalent among Pashtun men in the south who comprise Afghanistan's most important tribe.

Apologists say that Bacha Bazi or 'Boy Play' is a very old cultural practice in Afghanistan and part of that nation's mainstream.

When U.S. officials such as President Barack Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta discuss the war in Afghanistan and make claims of success in that fledgling democracy, one issue that's avoided is the widespread sexual intercourse between Afghan men and young boys. In non- diplomatic terms, Afghanistan is a haven for child rape, according to several American military officers just returning from the frontlines of the Global War on Terrorism.

In a country that is considered overly repressive due to its adherence to the precepts contained in the Muslim religion's Koran, it's difficult for American service members and diplomats to understand the fact that a large portion of the Afghan male population are pedophiles (adults who enjoy sexual contact with prepubescent children) or pederasts (adults who enjoy sexual relations with pubescent or post-pubescent children).

While Muslims in Iraq have on several occasions stoned homosexuals for their sexual activities, not all Muslims believe pedophilia is a violation of Sharia law. Those who believe in the sacredness and infallibility of the Koran adhere to the teaching that women are sub-human and quasi-slaves, and therefore Muslim men will look for relationships -- even sexual relationships -- with others of their own gender.

According to Reuters, there is a lot of homosexuality going on in Afghanistan, but those engaging in it don't think of themselves as gay, so that makes it okay since Islam officially disapproves of the gay and lesbian lifestyle.

"They regard themselves as non-gay because they don’t “love” the sex object so Allah is happy. These are the men who avoid their wives as unclean. Apparently there is very little love of any kind in Afghanistan, which explains a lot," according to Reuters.

“Having a boy has become a custom for us,” Ena Yatullah, a 42-year-old in Baghlan province, told a Reuters reporter. “Whoever wants to show off should have a boy.” [. . .]

Sociologists and anthropologists say the problem results from a perverse interpretation of Islamic law. Women are simply unapproachable. Afghans cannot talk to an unrelated woman until after proposing marriage. Before then, they can't even look at a woman, except perhaps her feet. Otherwise she is covered, head to ankle, according to columnist Joel Brinkley, a professor of journalism at Stanford University, and a former Pulitzer Prize-winning foreign correspondent for the New York Times.

In Kandahar, a city with a population of about 500,000, and other towns, dance parties are a popular -- often weekly -- pastime. Young boys dress up as females, wearing makeup and bells on their feet, and dance for a dozen or more leering middle-aged men who throw money at them and then take them home.

A recent State Department report called “dancing boys” a “widespread, culturally sanctioned form of male rape.” If women dressed and behaved in such a way, they would surely be punished by Muslim men.

Even after marriage, many men keep their boy-lovers, according to former U.S. military personnel who served in Afghanistan. That helps explain why women are compelled to wear clothing that hides their faces and bodies and if they "sin" they are stoned to death in accordance with Islamic law. That same law also forbids homosexuality, but the pedophiles explain that it's not homosexuality since they aren’t in love with their boys only fulfilling a bodily need.

Paradoxically, the Taliban frown on sexual relations between men and boys and enforce Sharia law to the letter. Are the followers of Islam, who adopt a more "liberal" approach to practicing their religion, perhaps responsible for the widespread rape of male children in Afghanistan? So, why are American military forces fighting and dying to protect pedophiles and pederasts in a country considered by many to be the pedophilia capital of Asia?

Why is there hesitation on the part of Obama, Clinton, Panetta and others to discuss the widespread sexual assault of male children in Afghanistan? Could it be that it is politically incorrect to discuss any immoral and unlawful behavior on the part of Muslims? It's quite evident that U.S. politicians may bash Christians without fear of adverse effects on their political careers. But these same leaders will behave as if they are walking on egg shells to avoid even the hint of criticizing Muslims.

In addition, there is always a hesitation to discuss man-on-boy sexual relationship for fear of mentioning the obvious: such a relationship is homosexual in nature.

In order for these types of societies of exist they must abuse you at a very early age. It creates complicity and corrupts from the beginning. It’s a huge reason the US is becoming full of evil and corrupt behavior. It begins in childhood.

A quick look at who Obama chose as his "safe schools czar" should answer that question.

From OUT:

Today, courtesy of The New York Times, comes a fabulous new twist to the tale--his nanny duirng his brief time in Jakarta, Indonesia, was a gay man and transvestite. Norimitsu Onishi writes, "His nanny was an openly gay man who, in keeping with Indonesia’s relaxed attitudes toward homosexuality, carried on an affair with a local butcher, longtime residents said. The nanny later joined a group of transvestites called Fantastic Dolls, who, like the many transvestites who remain fixtures of Jakarta’s streetscape, entertained people by dancing and playing volleyball." Just another reason to hope that Obama is not as insensible to the urgency of LGBT equality as he sometimes seems.

Everything about these worthless Saracen bastards involves murder, violence and sexual perversion. Christ said “Better to tie a millstone around thy neck and drown thyself in the sea than to lead a child into sin’’. These heathen perverts are proud of what they do. What filth.

the nation-building aspect of the Afgan campaign is a sad joke - most of these people deserve to be ruled by the Taliban.

Believe it or not, I suspect that the U.S. from about the 1940’s to present day is the most moral society the planet has ever seen. I know people are upset by gay marriage etc., but unspoken homosexuality and pedophilia have likely been rampant for thousands of years as people have had little reason to behave in any manner different than self centered savages.

I've read more than once that Mullah Omar rose to prominence after he rescued an especially attractive boy who was being fought over by two warlords. So, on this issue, the Taliban are the good guys. What a sick, twisted culture and religion.

Maybe it’s just me, but what exactly is this sexual relationship with these boys? It doesn’t say. I don’t know what common sexual practices are in Afghanistan, do you?

Are they having anal sex with these boys? Is it reciprocal? Is it oral sex? Is it reciprocal? Is it just touching? Are animals involved? We are talking about a barbaric country after all.

Uncomfortable questions ....... Yes, of course.

Mr. writer, don’t leave this to our own imaginations. We have little knowledge of this backward, stone age society. If you are going to report, then REPORT. How about some FACTS!

The Taliban took up arms over Bachi Baza. Our failure to supress it undermine COIN efforts. But Americans are not dying for Bachi Baza. We are dying to destroy the Taliban and Al Qaeda, or at least were until Obama decided to surrender to them.

I read a post here on FR a few months back that was similar to this one. It elaborated on the practises of “thighing”. I think that if you google search keyword “thighing” it will answer your question.

Sounds like Ancient Greece (although Greek men seem to have preferred teenaged boys, not the pre-pubescent ones). Alexander the Great conquered this area and there were later Greek-speaking kingdoms in this region—so this could be part of Alexander’s legacy (but might be even older than that).

I read that after the Russian invasion, the Taliban took up arms because the Russians were going to educate (gasp) WOMEN!

The sodomite fiefdom of saudi arabia recently had one of their “respectable” imans issue a fatwa (religious decree) declaring infant marriage & child rape as being ok as long as the infant/child can support the pedophiles’ weight.

Classy group of “royal” koranimals.

But we won’t follow the Bible. To many people are afraid of the media and sodomites. Make no mistake: SODOMITES ARE WORKING TOWARD A SOCIETY IN WHICH “INTERGENERATIONAL INTIMACY” (the sodomite euphemism for pedophilia) IS ACCEPTED.

They are using the schools and the media to condition people to accept this, and most conservatives continue to hand their children over to government schools and to hand over large amounts of money to the media and entertainment industries.

You are 100% correct.

This is what the “right of gay couples to adopt” is about. There have already been some awful scandals in Britain. All hushed up.
