Taliban Executes Accused Adulteress in Front of Cheering Crowd in Afghanistan (Video)

Jim Hoft

Onlookers cheered as the Taliban tortured and executed a woman for adultry [sic] in the village of Qimchok in Shinwari district, about an hour’s drive from Kabul.

Reuters reported, via ROP:

A man Afghan officials say is a member of the Taliban shot dead a woman accused of adultery in front of a crowd near Kabul, a video obtained by Reuters showed, a sign that the austere Islamist group dictates law even near the Afghan capital.

In the three-minute video, a turban-clad man approaches a woman kneeling in the dirt and shoots her five times at close range with an automatic rifle, to cheers of jubilation from the 150 or so men watching in a village in Parwan province.

“Allah warns us not to get close to adultery because it’s the wrong way,” another man says as the shooter gets closer to the woman. “It is the order of Allah that she be executed”.

Provincial Governor Basir Salangi said the video, obtained on Saturday, was shot a week ago in the village of Qimchok in Shinwari district, about an hour’s drive from Kabul.

Such rare public punishment was a painful reminder to Afghan authorities of the Taliban’s 1996-2001 period in power, and it raised concern about the treatment of Afghan women 11 years into the NATO-led war against Taliban insurgents.

The Taliban bombed Kabul two hours after Barack Obama announced peace talks with the terror group.

Meanwhile, Afghanistan Designated Major U.S. Ally.

…The United States declared Afghanistan a major, non-NATO ally on Saturday, with Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton personally delivering the news of Afghanistan’s entry into a club that includes Israel, Japan, Pakistan and other close Asian and Middle Eastern allies.

The move, announced as Mrs. Clinton stood with President Hamid Karzai amid the rose beds and towering trees on the grounds of the presidential palace here, was part of a broad strategic partnership deal signed by the United States and Afghanistan in May, she said. The pact went into effect last week….

Yep. They’re just like Israel and Japan…

Also, Timbuktu shrine destruction a ‘war crime’: ICC

Just like the destruction of the ancient giant statues of the Buddha in Afghanistan by the Taliban, pre 9/11.

“How could the Taliban better humiliate the locals than to destroy their heritage?”

A little like this:

“Barack knows that we are going to have to make sacrifices; we are going to have to change our conversation; we’re going to have to change our traditions, our history; we’re going to have to move into a different place as a nation.”
