NW Pakistan Surrenders to Taliban Justice? Let's Hope Not...

Over the past few hours, film footage of the Taliban stoning a woman to death has been circulating the wires. The woman, thought to have been seen out and about with a non-relative male, was hooded, tied to the ground and then stoned to death by a crowd of Taliban gathered around her in Orakzai, in the Northwest area of Pakistan. It is claimed that the video was shot about two months ago, smuggled out and given to the Dubai television outlet Al Aan. Reportedly, the man involved may have been merely shot to death.



Don't worry: This is NOT the actual video...


Carriers of honor? What honor is there in the lives of women who are forced to endure the miserable circumstances of life under the Taliban?

Let's think about the honorable minds that think a woman even being in the presence of a man not of her family must have sexually degraded herself and her family's 'honor'. 

All I can say is that I look forward to the time when the Taliban are either abolished or get their minds out of the gutter. The day when they stop persecuting women for their evidently immense corrupting power over men. Because as we know, men are so very, very weak.

Unless they are flinging stones.

  2. Sweet! Bye bye to the craziness. :)

    John found out that putting the gadget at the top of the sidebar made it load faster than your eye can see (on his blog at least). I also figured out how to make it so that you can add it directly to your template. The updated script with revised instructions taking all that into account is at the download site here.
