Now am I saying women can't do this work? No. I am rather saying they don't want to do it. They sit down in the programming classes, notice it is not fun for them, and leave.

It is a choice.

Mods, please mod this up.

Everyone else, please read and understand this.

This has been exactly my experience since I my university days more than 25 years ago. Women 'can' do IT, they just don't like it, and leave.

To not be ignorant.

Basically this member of ISIS (with an East London accent) is explaining exactly what he believes, what his religion dictates, how he views the actions of the US, and why he feels justified in doing what he is doing.

The video cuts away prior to any actual gore being shown so it's not really that offensive (compared to some other videos I have seen).

If you really want to try to understand the whole complex mess of Islam in the 21st century, then there is a whole bunch of disturbing things you need to see, including this video (okay, you can stop about 30 seconds before the end for the 'sanitised' version.)

Weekend, where are you?
