If you had any doubts about the true intent of the Taliban in Afghanistan, this story should set you right. A Christian aid worker, a woman of British and South African dual nationality was gunned down today in cold blood in Kabul. She was walking to work. Her work was helping handicapped Afghan civilians. And just WHY did she die? Look at the reason from the article at Breitbart:
A spokesman for the militants said the Taliban ordered her killed because she was accused of proselytizing."This woman came to Afghanistan to teach Christianity to the people of Afghanistan," Zabiullah Mujahid told The Associated Press. "Our (leaders) issued a decree to kill this woman."

She was killed because she was Christian and being Christian doesn't fit the violent ideology of islam. And perhaps a few of you, maybe more, maybe a dozen, will start to agree with me that islam is NOT A RELIGION. This is a blood thirsty political ideology that gets its way via terror, murder and violence.Here's more details from the article:

Taliban assailants on a motorbike gunned down a Christian aid worker in Kabul on Monday and the militants said she was killed for spreading her religion—a rare targeted killing of a Westerner in the nation's capital.Gayle Williams, a 34-year-old dual British-South African national who helped handicapped Afghans, was shot to death as she was walking to work about 8 a.m., said Interior Ministry spokesman Zemeri Bashary.Britain's secretary of state for international development called the killing a "callous and cowardly act" and said Williams was in Afghanistan to help ease poverty."To present her killing as a religious act is as despicable as it is absurd—it was cold blooded murder," Douglas Alexander said in a statement.To put it mildly, I am outraged over this. And quite frankly, I can't seem to type anything more than just kill every last single one of these Taliban bastards. Wipe them off the face of the earth.

"They are here to do NGO (aid) work."Afghanistan is a conservative Islamic nation. Proselytizing is prohibited by law, and other Christian missionaries or charities have faced severe hostility. Last year, 23 South Korean aid workers from a church group were taken hostage in southern Afghanistan. Two were killed and the rest were eventually released.According to its Web site, SERVE is a Christian charity registered in Britain and has been working with Afghan refugees since 1980 in Pakistan."SERVE Afghanistan's purpose is to express God's love and bring hope by serving the people of Afghanistan, especially the needy, as we seek to address personal, social and environmental needs," the site says.A member of Afghanistan's highest religious council said Monday that rumors have spread over the last two years that Westerners have been preaching Christianity to Afghans."We have heard rumors that houses have been rented to preach Christianity in Kabul and some provinces, but we have no evidence that this is taking place," said council member Jebra Ali. The council previously has made a formal complaint to President Hamid Karzai that Westerners are trying to spread Christianity in Afghanistan.

  1. At the start of Iraqi Freedom, I was for freeing the Iraqi people, as I still am, BUT I am furious that Christians are not safe to live in Iraq because Muslims are intent on killing them. This is like a slap in the face to all those coalition soldiers who put their lives on the line for people who would kill THEM if it wasn't for fear of them or for want of what could be provided.

    I read an article, which stated that Christian Iraq's neighbours for many years were now intent on killing them, so this cannot be swept away as being al Queda or Muslim extremists doing their thing. This is the work of average-Joe Muslims in Iraq intent on killing Christians.

    I am doing my own little bit of seething here.

  2. Joanne -- your seething is important and shared.
    I remember a newscast of our troops entering Baghdad. The reporter conducted a quick 'man on the street' interview with a middle-aged Iraqi man who was celebrating the American's arrival. The reporter asked the man how he felt about Saddam and his followers. He answered, "If I found one I'd slit his throat and drink his blood."
    And I remember thinking: Jeeez. And this is one of the GOOD guys.

    The culture is Islam in the ME is founded on violence. Every time we think we have developed an Islamic ally, we had better be very, very cautious. Islam is, has been, and always will be the enemy of freedom and enlightenment; therefore Islam will always be the enemy of the West. This is not about to change merely because of new political leadership. I still have hope for Iraq. But I have no hope for Islam.

    The best we can do with Islam is either totally subjugate it or destroy it. As harsh as this sounds, everything I have studied brings me to this unavoidable conclusion. Everything short of this is merely a band aid on a major wound.

  3. Though she was giving aid to unfortunate children so that they might live better, I guess we can state that she was professing her religion. Acts done with the heart are prayers too.
    She chose to help people live as a testament. Her assassins would choose to see her charges die as testaments.
    So simple; horrid, but simple.

  4. It is time that the Muslim world enter the 21st century. If their people want to become Christian, then that is their right. That is true freedom. Not the BS of raised purple inked fingers. When the people of an area have the freedom to worship as they want to, then they can call themselves not only free, but civilized. Until then we should civilize them by the sword if necessary.
