    The killing of the woman was savagery..

    From my understanding, even in the 70's, Afghanistan was pretty backwards outside the urban centers

What makes people angry is that there are not legions of Christian soldiers, with relatively high approval ratings, marching into battle on the streets of Karbala and Damascus, there are not legions of Jewish militants ferreting their way into Riyadh or Kabul, nor are there mobs of incensed Hindus and Buddhists breaking down the doors of printing presses in Cairo and Amman. The problem is one of scale, scope, and repetition. To compare Islamism, Islamist violence, and Islamist groups to their potential religious counterparts in other faiths completely misses the point. It is a unique problem because of its magnitude and because of how often (daily) attacks occur on a scale that stretches all over the planet. It is not "Islamophobic" to say that this is a unique problem, and equivocating is not helpful in my opinion.

    Then we would know about it be cause The View would have a segment on it and Dr. Oz would then tell us all how to stay regular afterward...

    I have never been to Afghanistan, but from what I have read they have some very peculiar cultural norms. I have lived in Arabia, Kuwait and Libya with lots of repeat travel to Lebanon, Tehran, Damascus and Baghdad... and Jordan.

    For the most part, my experience of Muslims is that they tend to care about the same things that you might care about.. family, earning a living and so on.

    Brutal cold blooded murder
    Unfortunately, I have to say I'm not surprised at all.

    With the addendum that the Pathan demographics that the Taliban relies upon to support its war effort are not the majority of Afghani's.

    That is the problem with following a religion which is intricately and necessarily tied in with civil law.

    I respect your personal perspectives, however, there are many more variables at play in this instance and to generalize would be to obfuscate the issues inherent here which may speak to fundamentalism and/or other such issues.
