Malala Yusafzai, Malalai Joya, and “the preferably unheard” in America

Full Spectrum Cromulence , Oct 11, 2013

Malalai Joya
Two heroic activists, one household name. Malala Yusafzai (l) and Malalai Joya (r)

In 2012, the world was shocked when 15-year old Malala Yusafzai was shot in the head in an assassination attempt by the Pakistani Taliban. Yusafzai’s activism went global—she is the youngest Nobel prize nominee in history, and is currently discussing her memoir, I Am Malala, on America’s most prestigious outlets. Yusafzai is an astonishingly courageous person. However, there is a reason that we in the West hear from Yusafzai and not from other women around the Muslim world. Whose voice is amplified and whose is ignored supports a deeper narrative. As Arundhati Roy says, “There’s really no such thing as the ‘voiceless.’ There are only the deliberately silenced, or the preferably unheard.” The fact that most Americans have heard of Malala Yusafzai but almost none have heard of Malalai Joya reveals the narratives that undergird Western imperialism in the Muslim world.

Malalai: The "Big Lie" of U.S. Troop Withdrawal from Afghanistan

Scarry Thoughts , Oct 11, 2013

Malalai Joya

Malalai Joya spoke to a group in Chicago yesterday, and I heard a clear message from her: it is not enough for the U.S. to pull out its remaining combat troops. The presence of U.S. bases assures that the violence and instability will continue. People in the U.S. who really want to help Afghanistan need to work to remove ALL vestiges of the U.S. invasion and occupation -- to DEMILITARIZE Afghanistan.

بهای شجاعت: زندگی پر مخاطره ملالی جویا

نویسنده: سونالی کولهاتکر، مترجم: سمیر
منبع:‌ سایت تروت دگ، ۱۰ اکتوبر ۲۰۱۳

Malalai Joya

برخلاف اندام کوچکش، فعال افغان ملالی جویا یک شخصیت برجسته در میان افغان های عادی است. او ۲۵ سال داشت که در مقابل جنگسالاران جنایتکار که بوسیله امریکا حمایت میشدند در لویه جرگه قانون اساسی سال ۲۰۰۳ ایستاد.

جویا پیش از اینکه مایکروفونش قطع شود، آواز خود را بلند کرد، "آزموده را آزمودن خطاست، آنان باید به محکمه ملی و بین المللی کشانیده شوند، حتی اگر آنان توسط مردم ما بخشیده شوند، مردم پا برهنه افغان، تاریخ این جنایتکاران را نخواهد بخشید،" امروز با گذشت یک دهه او توانسته است از سوقصد های متعدد که نتیجه این موضعگیری او بود جان سالم بدر برد. در حال حاضر او به فعالیت های سیاسی خود به شکل زیرزمینی ادامه داده و دست به افشای جنگسالاران میزند. جویا همچنان خواستار خروج فوری نیروهای امریکایی و پایان دادن به جنگ و اشغال در افغانستان است.

Afghanistan's Warlords Cannot Silence Malalai Joya

vice, Oct 8, 2013

Malalai Joya

Today marks the 12th anniversary of the US invasion of Afghanistan. The ongoing war, the longest in American history, has fallen from the forefront of the American public’s consciousness. The US has turned its focus from the initial fronts in the war on terror—Afghanistan and subsequently Iraq—to fresh battlefields in Libya, Yemen, Pakistan, and Syria. But for Afghans, whose country remains divided between Taliban commandos and a government comprised largely of former warlords supported by US and NATO, violence remains an everyday reality.

Report on Malalai Joya's October 4 Talk

Marilyn Vogt-Downey, Oct 4, 2013

Malalai Joya in Los New York

The people of Afghanistan do not ask that the US government do anything for them except get out of their country. The twelve years of military attacks and occupation have caused Afghanistan to become a country of widows and orphans without homes, education or community services. The US occupation only strengthens the control of the war lords and the mafia government of drug lords and war criminals and the Taliban. This is the message of Malalai Joya brought to an audience at the Community Church in Manhattan on Friday evening October 4. The Taliban was a creation of the US government during the Soviet occupation whose clutches on Afghanistan society now are only strengthened by the presence of the US military forces. See here for example.

"Imperialism & Fundamentalism Have Joined Hands": Malalai Joya on 12 Years of U.S.-Led Afghan War

DEMOCRACY NOW!, Oct. 3, 2013

Ahead of next weeks 12th anniversary of what has become the longest war in U.S. history, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel says the United States is seeking to sign an accord to keep U.S. troops in Afghanistan for the indefinite future. The United States plans to pull out the bulk of its 57,000 troops in Afghanistan by the end of 2014, but the Pentagon wants to retain a smaller force of around 10,000 forces after 2014. We are joined by Afghan activist and former member of Parliament, Malalai Joya, author of the book, "A Woman Among Warlords: The Extraordinary Story of an Afghan Who Dared to Raise Her Voice." A survivor of numerous attempts on her life, Time magazine has named her as one of the 100 most influential people in the world. "We need the support of justice-loving people of the U.S. to join their hands with us," Joya says. "Unfortunately, we see that today imperialism and fundamentalism have joined hands."
