    The Taliban hates the Ismaili.
    The ultra conservative Saudi Arabian Sunni Muslims also hate the Ismaili.

    The Ismaili are a modern, forward looking Shiite sect totaling around 15 million spread throughout the world, representing less than 2% of all Muslims.
    The gave up the idea of veiling their women around a century ago. You'll never see an Ismaili woman wearing as much as a hijab.
    Ismaili families are focused on education, and usually send both their sons and daughters to university.
    They also pay a portion of their income, as a voluntary tax, to the Aga Khan Foundation, which uses the money to build schools and hospitals in poor Muslim countries.

    It is no wonder that the Taliban wants to kill people like that.

    Here in Calgary, where I live, our city's mayor, Naheed Nenshi, is an Ismaili.
    We elected and re-elected him because he was the best qualified candidate for the job.

    Sounds like good people. The Taliban are like the TX oil mafia whereas they are a bunch of old dog, old tricks group of people who just want self preservsation...Kinda like the churches too if you think.

    I don't care if a person is gay, straight, whatever the fuck. the "best person for the job should get it"* I don't know why more people just can't see it.

    * When I say best person for the job, that MEANS NO NIGGERS!!!!!!! HAHAHHHAHAHHAHH
