Reports from multiple sources (one Four women, including activist, killed in northern Afghanistan) claim Taliban cowboys killed four women, at least one of them of the group of women who publicly protested against the Taliban’s harsh restrictions on women.
This is no surprise. It was expected, given the barbarism the Taliban has exhibited in the past. It is to be expected of the gun-totting Islamic cowboys wandering the streets of Afghanistan eager to shoot the place up. It is expected of a culture that has continually been shown to be, at its worst, backward and barbaric.
Of course, not everyone imprisoned in the Islamic world has succumbed to its culture. But those ordinary people, whose natural feelings and sympathies direct them, have little say in Islam’s governance.
