    Taliban stones man and woman to death for allegedly having affair

    Kabul, Afghanistan (CNN) -- The Taliban stoned to death a man and a woman in northern Afghanistan for allegedly having an affair, officials said Monday.

    The stoning took place Sunday in Dasht-e-Archi district, in the village of Mullah Qali -- a village dominated by the Taliban in Kunduz province.

    The pair was accused of having an illicit sexual relationship, a spokesman for the Kunduz governor said.

    The woman was about 20 years old and the man was about 27, said Mohammed Ayuob, district governor of Amam Sahib, which is also in Kunduz province.

    The woman was engaged, and the man was married to another woman. The two had been held by the Taliban for about a week, Ayuob said.
    And we wanna try and make a deal with these people....

    Grrrr, it's impossible to wipe them out, Afghanistan is a quagmire. But I'd hate to see the Afghan people fall under such a regime ever again, not that Kharzai's government is any better, but at least they're not directly stoning people to death.

    **** the Taliban, buncha assholes.

    And for the love of god, I would really appreciate it if this thread doesn't break down into Christianity vs. Islam, or Anti-Islam sentiments coming in here.

    I cannot believe that the majority of Afghani people want to live under this sort of tyranny. So, how is the Taliban able to exercise this kind of control over their lives?

    President Obama has lectured: "Islam is a religion of peace" and "you must respect their traditions."

    It is sad when women are brutally slaughtered in this fashion and the President / Democrats / News Media remain moot.

    What about basic human rights?

    Well . . . it certainly is a "teachable moment" as to why we should care about succeeding in Afghanistan. A missed opportunity, to be sure.

    Re: Taliban stones man and woman to death for allegedly having affair

    Our President lacks a basic understanding of what constitutes human rights, and the necessity to speak out against tyranny when he is faced with it. Unfortunately, Mr. Obama has never done so, though he has been faced with multiple opportunities to speak out against Islamic intollerance, Islamic bigotry, Islamic-backed anti-Semitic hate (and propaganda in the news media) and for me - Islamic homophobia - the persecution of gays in the Middle East. Gays voted 98% for Mr. Obama, but he has shown himself to remain moot even on the most elementary questions of human dignity.

    This administration has taken a silent stance on basic human rights ... and like the United Nations and Clinton Administration in 1994 (during the Rwandan Genocide) ... dare not speak out against Islam and its unfolding tragedies for fear of upsetting the left-wing, anti-Semitic, pro-terrorist faction within our nation.

    Isn't this the cue for one of our sanctimonious British posters to call you an "Islamophobe".

    Rational critisism of Islam is always welcome.

    I don't like the way it's instituted in the Middle East at all, Sharia courts are barbaric, one of many examples of how I dislike institutionalized Islam.

    What I'm reffering to, and I should have been more specific in my OP, was that I don't wanna hear the same old bull that all Islam Means Terror. Simply not true.
