TIME MAGAZINE: Taliban orders to cut off nose of abused Afghan girl (photo)

Are leftists finally awakening to the barbarism of the Taliban? I don’t think so. Are they finally going to defend the rights of women living under Islamic Sharia law? One can only hope. But for whatever reason, the leftists from Time Magazine in their latest issue remind the world about the Taliban’s brutality.

Time Magazine: What Happens if We Leave Afghanistan

“Time magazine’s latest issue carries this disturbing cover image. It’s a portrait of Aisha, a shy 18-year-old Afghan woman who was sentenced by a Taliban commander to have her nose and ears cut off for fleeing her abusive in-laws.

Aisha posed for the picture because she wants the world to see the effect a Taliban resurgence would have on the women of Afghanistan.

Her picture is accompanied by a powerful story on how Afghan women have embraced the freedoms that have come from the defeat of the Taliban — and how they fear a Taliban revival.”
…That from the leftist UK Guardian [1]

The story of Aisha: [2]

“The Taliban pounded on the door just before midnight, demanding that Aisha, 18, be punished for running away from her husband’s house. Her in-laws treated her like a slave, Aisha pleaded. They beat her. If she hadn’t run away, she would have died. Her judge, a local Taliban commander, was unmoved. Aisha’s brother-in-law held her down while her husband pulled out a knife. First he sliced off her ears. Then he started on her nose.”

“As the war in Afghanistan enters its ninth year, the need for an exit strategy weighs on the minds of U.S. policymakers. Such an outcome, it is assumed, would involve reconciliation with the Taliban.”

“Talk that the Afghan government is considering some kind of political accommodation with the Taliban frightens [Aisha]. “They are the people that did this to me,” she says, touching her damaged face. “How can we reconcile with them?””

Another case: Taliban sends wife ahead of him…in a minefield: [2]

“For Afghanistan’s women, an early withdrawal of international forces could be disastrous.”

A foreign human-rights team in Afghanistan noticed that in the cities, “women walked six paces behind their husbands. But in rural Helmand, where the Taliban is strongest, they saw a woman six steps ahead. The foreigners rushed to congratulate the husband on his enlightenment — only to be told that he stuck his wife in front because they were walking through a minefield.”

Is this brutality what the coward from WikiLeaks, Julian Assange, wants to perpetuate by leaking classified documents of the war in Afghanistan?

Islamic Crusades predate the European Crusades

    This is how people behave that people can behave when they believe in Islam. Not all of them but Islam allows for these loop holes, but the taliban are a particularly brutal “people” yet they call themselves muslems.

    So, where’s the righteous rage of Muslims, and its handmaiden, the fawning European mainstream media?
