Dhimmi ? Dummy ? Thinker ! The Honeymoon is over…

rodin_thinker_detail I was debating the appropriate series or titling of this post and went with DDT. I’m sharing the story and my views on this for the reason of showing the complexity of the issue. I like absolutes but I am repulsed by knee jerk reflexive actions. Look before you leap is an adage I think we should live by.

From the BBC

The Taleban in Afghanistan have publicly killed a young couple who they said had tried to run away to get married, officials say.

 

The man, 21, and woman, 19, were shot dead on Monday in front of a mosque in the south-western province of Nimroz.

Nimroz is an area where the Taleban have a strong influence.

Governor Ghulam Dastageer Azad told the AFP news agency the killings followed a decree by local religious leaders and were an “insult to Islam”.

 

#1. I think it’s a safe assumption that the locals are not Christians,Hindus or Jews. My point being that other Muslims think the actions of the Taliban are out of line.

#2. Goes hand in hand with number one. I for one would like to see what the locals due with the Taliban thugs. I’m thinking they are long overdue to pony up their true beliefs and feelings with some action. Be it cooperation with NATO and Afghan forces or actual tribal whoop ass upon the T-ban I don’t care…just show me something.

#3. People that frowned upon,looked down on the Afghan people really piss me off. Perhaps a reader of #2 would claim I’m that which I rail against. Well simply NO! The Afghan majority suffered under the Taliban and actions by the USA that has allowed them to resurge is a disgrace. I don’t fault the troops it’s all about the politicians. The latter being now the NATO pols especially.

#4. Love between two that otherwise would’ve been allowed squelched ? I don’t know but I’m assuming the Taliban took some offense to not having a hand in some type of arranged nuptials. That’s just f@#&ed up.

    A lot of “insulting” top islam going on world wide. For some strange reason, they all find comfort in using islam to srive their ideology. I wonder why.

    Also ironic that you use the word “dhimmi” in the title. We all know what the word “dhimmi” is.

    Nice whitewashing btw.

    The Afghan majority voted in Sharia law which includes making marital rape A-OK. But thats what happens when you give muslims a vote. Democracy and islam are not compatible. Sorry I dont feel sorry one bit for the Afghan people.

    This kinda speaks to the potential of memory loss or other mental defect.
    it is Dhimmi ? The question mark means something and I don’t have the thime right now to give you a personal block of instruction.
    As for your other comment the truth or as you like to term it the “whitewash” is somewhat different.
    CNN for example

    KABUL – As Afghanistan’s Parliament debated ways Monday to protect female politicians from assassination, young women attending Kabul University expressed surprise and bewilderment at the debate raging in Canada and Europe over a proposed law that seems to allow men from the Shiite Hazara minority to sexually enslave their wives and imprison them in their homes.

    The nearly unanimous view on the campus – arguably the most progressive institution in Afghanistan – was that the West should not involve itself in the country’s cultural and religious affairs.

    “This is not a good law. Women should be allowed to do what they want,” said Hamida Hasani, 18, a Hazara architecture student at Kabul University.She said she was familiar with the controversial legislation, which President Hamid Karzai has pledged to urgently review in the face of strong complaints from western governments.

    “But we do not want total freedom. We wanted it to be limited and to be within Islam.”

    Yep. My character. I stand by I dont feel sorry for these people.

    “The question mark means something and I don’t have the thime right now to give you a personal block of instruction.”

    Because if you actually get into it, it gets into the heart of how intolerant islam is.
