    Sure ... and Al Qaeda needs to stop killing people.

    But they're not going to.

    So they'll continue to condescend to their clients, practice discrimination against their employees and be a poor second best substitute for publicly supported social welfare programs -- while bringing enormous political power to bear to maintain the poverty status quo.

      for discrimination against employees, I don't see any recent evidence of

      condescend to their clients,
      .

      That may not excuse the discrimnation they do practice but it seems unfair to say they condescend or discriminate against clients with no more evidence than a story from 20 years ago.

      Also, regarding:

      a poor second best substitute for publicly supported social welfare programs
      The SA certainly jumps in to help, in most instances, much more quickly than the government safety net does.  Weeks and weeks of "proofs" and other bureaucratic BS do not exist when asking the SA for help.
