Taliban offers reward for killing of cartoonist (AFP) Updated: 2006-02-09 15:30
A top Taliban commander offered a reward of 100 kilograms of gold to anyone who kills the person responsible for "blasphemous" cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed, the Afghan Islamic Press (AIP) reported.
If someone killed the cartoonist responsible for the cartoons in Denmark, the "Taliban will give 100 kilograms (244 pounds) of gold," Mullah Dadullah said in a telephone call to AIP from an unknown location, the Pakistan-based private news agency reported on Wednesday.
Dadullah also said the Taliban would give five kilograms of gold to anyone who killed a Danish, Norwegian or German soldier, AIP said.
AIP said Dadullah was operating as chief commander of the Taliban waging an anti-government insurgency in Afghanistan.
The agency quoted Dadullah as saying the Taliban's list of would-be suicide bombers had grown since the publication of the cartoons.
Eleven demonstrators have been killed since Friday in violent protests over the cartoons in Afghanistan.
oh, that is so KEWL! I'm stealing it...
Thanks! Permission granted!
(I made it; I'm thinking Charles Schulz would have approved!)

Let's just kill off the Taliban instead and collect any gold they might have.
About three ounces of gold?
Misread it. The goon is offering 220 pounds of gold.
The cartoonist should make a counter offer for the killing of the Taliban.
The Power of Positive Thinking.
Wins every time.
Isn't gold actually weighed in troy ounces? 12 troy oz = 1 lb troy. No idea how much that is in Eurograms, but it sounds like somebody's investments need to diversify.
Can I put it on my home page for a while?...It will give you credit for it.
Done...take a look sometime. It looks great!
Does indeed! Great storm shot, too!
And I'll pay a wooden nickle to anyone that kills a Taliban. After all, that is only what they are worth.
Hey, Mr. Taliban, the guy who actually drew the cartoons lives in New York. Name of Rall, first named Ted. But please don't hurt him or anything!

Bugs Bunny: [Bugs is surrounded by a ring of delayed-action shells] Eh, could it be that I carried this thing too far?
[the shells explode. When the smoke clears, we find Bugs at Alcatraz]
Bugs Bunny: Nyeh, could be.
Yeah. Just try collecting on that.
