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.
