Taleban hang 7-year-old boy to punish family (Boy accused of "spying")

Taleban hang 7-year-old boy to punish family

Jerome Starkey, Kandahar

A seven-year-old boy was executed by the Taleban in a brutal act of retribution this week, after his grandfather dared to resist the insurgency’s iron rule.

Afghan officials said the boy was accused of spying for US and Nato forces and hanged from a tree in southern Afghanistan.

Daoud Ahmadi, the spokesman for Helmand’s provincial governor, said the murder came just days after the boy’s grandfather, Abdul Woodod Alokozai, spoke out against militants in their hometown.

“I know his father and I know his grandfather,” Mr Ahmadi said. “His grandfather is a tribal elder in the village and the village is under the control of the Taleban. His grandfather said some good things about the government and he formed a small group of people to stand against the Taleban.

“That’s why the Taleban killed his grandson in revenge.”

The attack happened in Heratiyan village, in Sangin district, close to where insurgents shot down an American Pave Hawk helicopter yesterday, killing all four crew.

The helicopter was swooping low over the Taleban infested town to suppress attacks on a grounded air ambulance, which was busy loading British casualties on board.

The killing of children to punish their parents has chilling echoes of western mafia-style violence. Under Pashtunwali, the complex and ancient honour code of the Pashtuns, it is likely to spawn generations of vendettas and blood letting.

Asked about the attack at a press conference, President Hamid Karzai, said he didn’t know if the Taleban had been involved.

The Taleban denied any involvement. They also denied attacking a wedding party in Kandahar yesterday which left at least 40 people dead and more than 80 others seriously wounded.

Both incidents have drawn fierce condemnation from Afghan and international officials.

Why aren't any captured Taliban put on trial for war crimes/crimes against humanity and hanged just like at Nuremburg?

This sounds strange-—even for the Taliban. Why wouldn’t they just go after the old man?

Good grief. When did the mafia start murdering 7-year-olds?

Don’t watch the video unless you have a strong stomach because it will probably make you violently ill.

It proves the depravity of Izlum and the Mullahs.

It’s worse than hanging a seven year old.

Islam is a plague of biblical proportions. It is a religion that produces savagery in human beings. Savagery and base stupidity are it’s fruits. Only the worst of humanity could elevate the words of Mohamed to the status of a world religion.

Because they want to send a message to the people that they will kill anyone, even children, that get in their way.

Same message they were sending by executing women in a soccer stadium not that long ago.

The mafia usually keep their murders confined to participants in ‘la cosa nostra’ and your family is considered off limits.

When the mafia wants you to toe the line, they break your kneecaps; they don't hang your 7 year old.

I await correction on this point.......

Yeah...I guess you’re right. Something similar occurred to me after I hit the post button.

The murder of the child was a blatant act to terrorize Afghan parents. The Taliban is evil defined. Evil cowers, retreats, and hides before strength thus resorting to killing baby's, women and the weak. The Taliban are the worms sh!t from a dog after having eaten a pig.

Diabolical. But to the left the USA, especially in the Bush era, was the purveyor of hate and evil in the world. I could vomit.

Sorry, the mafia doesn't murder 7 year olds.

Only evil sub human vermin do things like that.

Anybody who does something like this is sub-human. If caught they need to be skinned alive. I would be interested in hearing what these leftist idiots here in America who love to suck up to Muslims would have to say about this.

Usually they gut the kid pack him with explosives so the family dies when they retrieve the body.

Coming here thanks to Great Religion Bush and zippy Blue lips Obama.

Not that I condone this, but being sodomized by an dirty old man is worse than being hanged?

Maybe I missed something in the video

“The killing of children to punish their parents has chilling echoes of western mafia-style violence.”

I don’t remember hearing about any mafia killings of children in order to punish the parents. Sounds like something Sadam Hussein might have done, though.

I love the use of the words “chilling echoes” as if to imply this type of thing was done in the west FIRST. Oh, yeah, Muslims never killed children before the mafia came up with the idea!

I guess the media and our Mexican friends will be expressing their outrage about this just as they went ballistic when the 14 year old smuggler was killed.

< crickets >

Actually, I couldn’t really see what was going on in that video. That’s probably a good thing.

The Nazis killed children if their parents took a stand against them, too. But this must be multi-culturalism at its best — the thing THEY choose to do that we don’t do. “How can we judge?” // sarc.
