Taliban execute teacher in front of his pupils for educating girls

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.

True, because feminazis and leftists in general see the West as the primary enemy.

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.

God forbid that when we capture these murderers, we should actually frighten or humiliate them or (shudder) cause them any pain!

The Democrats and RINOs who voted against the Patriot Act today actually voted FOR the Taliban and what they do to those who support women's rights.

Oh well, these were probably some of the "innocent" thugs we had at Gitmo. You know, the ones we can't question anymore without asking "Please" first, thanks to that villain McCain.

Like they said, 'we believe in the establishment of sharia worldwide even if it means the death of all human beings.'

With liberals, their politics ALWAYS come first. Just like "blackness" is more akin to one's politics, so is being a feminist.

This is too vile to take in right now, but what in the world is wrong with McCain? I thought that a former POW would know the nature of these subhumans.

The action of these murdering mohamMADan rock worshipers just goes to show the results of following the vile mass murdering rapist and pedophile will ensure their slavery, oppression and humiliation for all time.

I think about that PIG and wonder how many deaths he has been responsible for, both directly and indirectly, over the centuries. There's something truly evil about his hold over the slaves to his death cult, and those that look the other way and ignore it are guilty of collaboration by silent consent.

There is only one permanent solution:

DEATH TO ISLAM!

In no way are these the actions of any religion. They are the actions of a demonic death cult.

This would be great material for Michael Graham to bring up on his Washington DC talk radio show on WMAL 630 AM. Oops! He can't because CAIR got him fired by the jello spined station management.
