I am thrilled that the little girl who stood up to the sharia enforcers was saved and secreted out of Pakistan to the UK for medical treatment and ..... most hopefully, her freedom. I am thrilled that the world has taken up her cause.
But I am not thrilled that the motive behind her shooting, the sharia, is being ignored. I am not thrilled that millions of girls are suffering under this same brutal and oppressive system of governance every day, every hour, every minute, and the world stands silent.
If "we are all Malala," as Angelina Jolie has declared, why aren't Jolie and the other celeb opportunists, along with Hillary Clinton and NOW, condemning the sharia and calling for a worldwide banning of the most extreme and radical and misogynistic ideology on the face of the earth, that brutalizes girls like Malala for sport?
Taliban justifies shooting of schoolgirl: "The Quran says that people propagating against Islam and Islamic forces would be killed" Jihadwatch
You ever get the impression that maybe Hamas-linked CAIR is not telling us the whole story about the Qur'an?
"Taliban says its attack on Pakistani schoolgirl justified," from Reuters, October 16 (thanks to EH):ISLAMABAD (Reuters) - Taliban insurgents said on Tuesday that the Pakistani schoolgirl its gunmen shot in the head deserved to die because she had spoken out against the group and praised U.S. President Barack Obama.
Malala Yousufzai, 14, was flown to Britain on Monday, where doctors said she has every chance of making a "good recovery"....
Pakistan's Taliban described Yousufzai as a "spy of the West".
"For this espionage, infidels gave her awards and rewards. And Islam orders killing of those who are spying for enemies," the group said in a statement.
"She used to propagate against mujahideen (holy warriors) to defame (the) Taliban. The Quran says that people propagating against Islam and Islamic forces would be killed.
"We targeted her because she would speak against the Taliban while sitting with shameless strangers and idealized the biggest enemy of Islam, Barack Obama."
Oh, how he would weep if he heard them say that.Pakistanis have held some protests and candlelight vigils but most government officials have refrained from publicly criticising the Taliban by name over the attack, in what critics say is a lack of resolve against extremism.
"We did not attack her for raising voice for education. We targeted her for opposing mujahideen and their war," said the Taliban. "Shariah (Islamic law) says that even a child can be killed if he is propagating against Islam."
