Description

An email chain letter has been distributed around the internet with the subject line "Petition Against Taliban re: Women".

The email begins:

Further Afghanistan Terror

If you decide not to forward this, please send it back to me with a note indicating such. This is an actual petition, and "signatures" will be lost if you drop the line.

The email goes on to describe, in some detail, the living conditions of women under the Taliban regime in Afghanistan and asks for the petition to be forwarded to an email address at Brandeis University.

Brandeis University has confirmed that the email is bogus, and that they do not want to receive any more email regarding this petition.
