One may think that the Taliban are a distant threat, that they’re on the wane, and on and on, but the evil of the Taliban is alive and well.
Jawa Report’s post on Most Shocking Video Ever: 12 Year Old Taliban Boy Beheads Man. Pray for the child in that video.
Now, I haven’t watched the video because,
How bad are the Taliban? I thought I had seen horrible videos produced by al Qaeda, the Taliban, and other Islamist organizations. I’d seen the depth of their depravity when they beheaded Daniel Pearl. Experienced what I thought was the highest form of righteous indignation possible when they murdered dozens of other hostages. Felt like I knew what wrath was.
None of it even comes close. The images we posted earlier were bad. Add video and sound of a child—a child–slowly hacking away at a man’s head while he lives on…..no words can describe it.
Strongest possible content warning: Proceed with extreme caution!
It’s so bad that there was some debate amongst ourselves whether to show it or not.
When the Jawa guys tell you that, you better believe it.
The video was made by the Taleban themselves, who also videotaped themselves burning hostages alive. Muslim hostages.
Also at Jawa, there are now 5 convictions on the plot to behead a Muslim veteran of the Iraq war. of course, they wanted to film the beheading.
Meanwhile in NYC, far from reality, the NY Times gets its knickers in a bunch because US blinfolded prisoners in Iraq.
