Taliban Execute Teacher In Front Of His Pupils For Educating Girls

Taliban execute teacher in front of his pupils for educating girls

By Tom Coghlan in Kabul
(Filed: 17/12/2005)

Taliban insurgents in southern Afghanistan have executed a school teacher in front of his pupils for refusing to comply with warnings to stop educating girls.

The attack took place on Thursday at a secondary school in Nadi Ali district, Helmand province, the scene of many Taliban attacks in recent months, according to the police, who learned of the incident yesterday.

About 4,000 British troops will be deployed to the province in April to combat an increasingly confident insurgency.

Pupils at the school said two armed men arrived by motorcycle. "They dragged the teacher from the classroom and shot him at the school gate," said Abdul Rahman Sabir, Helmand's police chief.

"He had received many warning letters from the Taliban to stop teaching, but he continued to do so happily and honestly - he liked to teach boys and girls." He identified the teacher by the single name of Laghmani.

Under the Taliban interpretation of Islamic Sharia law female education was banned, along with female employment. Since the overthrow of the Taliban government by the US-led invasion of 2001, the Afghan government claims six million Afghan children have returned to school, many of them girls.

However, Taliban insurgents in the south have repeatedly targeted schools, burning many to the ground at night or issuing beatings or warnings to teachers.

Pardon me for stating the obvious, but it appears that April may be a little late.

No, they are not.

They are animals.

They are vermin that make absolutely no contributions to mankind.

They need to be EXTERMINATED.

Well if we find any of these murderous scum, don't forget to be nicey nicey with them, give them a good lawyer, say Ramsey Clark, and read them their rights, and so on and so forth. This is the new world order as passed by our esteem elite inside the Beltway who would not know a terrorist if he came up and blew up his satchel.

Yes, and they know that Westerners are conditioned to react emotionally instead of with logic.

In this country we imprison Colonel Kurtz, because we are ashamed of him and because we might possibly win if we didn't. (I use "we" loosely...)

They've tied the hands of the military to the point where these guys can get stronger. The media has been in bed with the enemies of the US for a long time. Stop treating them as though they are actual citizens. They want to be citizens of the world? Great, we owe them nothing, that includes protection.

I heard an interview today with Van Hipp, former Sec. of the Army...mostly about the Congress' inaction on the Patriot Act and other issues. When the topic turned to terrorists, Van Hipp decried their capture and trials. Find 'em and shoot 'em.
I agree.

Every teacher in that country should be issued a side arm and holster and training how to use it. These weapons should be prominently displayed like Matt Dillon on the old west.

Why send in the British? These people need to learn defend themselves from raids like this.

Because now, NOW is a joke. Time was when politicians cowered in fear of those big dykes, but this ain't the '70's anymore, and they're just another small bunch of leftist moonbats who really can't influence what happens in the US, much less Afghanistan.

(Of course, a Hitlery for President candidacy might re-energize 'em. Beware!;)

alla-uzza - not just a black[hearted] piece of moonrock, a false god that wants to kick your ass!

Taliban executes teacher for {gasp! shudder!} educating young women and girls - oh! humanity! oh! the temerity - oh! the blasphemy - oh! the futility...

Oh, the "/sarcasm" tag! It's another P.R.O.P.* PING-o-rama!

{P.hony R.eligion O.f P.eace - Phony Religion, Phony Peace - more than a good idea, it is the law of the black moon-rock false god!}

Taliban "insurgents" at their old handiwork - terrorising the people least insulated and protected from their murderous, P.R.O.P.-driven holy mission to eradicate art, culture, thought, and civilisation. Meanwhile, the obsequious liberal "journalists" thousands of safe miles away continue to be awed, cowed, and perversely fascinated with the orgiastic bloodletting.

P.R.O.P. - islam's not just a jihad, it's an adventure!

Taliban insurgents in southern Afghanistan have executed a school teacher in front of his pupils for refusing to comply with warnings to stop educating girls.

Behold the "heroic" darlings of the anti-American Left!

Why we don't rub this in their noses is a mystery. Were it up to me, they'd be getting hammered over the head day and night for their patently abhorrent treason in supporting punk-ass terrorists such as those cowards.

You speak the ugly, horrifying, undeniable truth.

My first thought was- was the Koran in the classroom? The justification for his execution is in that very book. Yet they revere it.
As long as they revere, and defend, that which calls for death and destruction, they shall suffer it.
Their 'religion' is a disease. To defend it is to defend the very cancer that is killing you.
There is no good form of cancer. There is no good form of Islam.
