Posted on 01/20/2009 1:00:44 AM PST by FocusNexus
Suspected Taliban militants have blown up five schools in Pakistan's northwestern Swat Valley, continuing a campaign to prevent girls from attending classes.
Officials say Monday's targets included both boys' and girls' schools.
The attacks came hours after a government minister, Information Minister Sherry Rehman, vowed that girls' schools would re-open after winter break on March 1, despite the Taliban's ban against girls' education in the region.
A local Taliban leader, Shah Durran, announced the ban in December, telling families they must stop sending their daughters to school by January 15 or the girls will be killed.
The ban is part of the Taliban's bid to enforce its version of Islamic law in northwestern Pakistan. In recent months, militants have blown up an estimated 175 schools.
Where is the outrage?
Liberals are outraged about “torturing” the terrorists, but don’t seem to be care, when said terrorists are blowing up innocent children.
Taliban threatens to kill school girls in Pakistan’s Swat region
“Local Taliban have threatened to bomb schools and kill any girls attending classes after January the 15th.
SAWLANI: For many schoolchildren, especially girls, attending school in Pakistan’s northwestern region has become a life threatening routine.
Since 2007, 168 schools have been blown up by local Taliban militia, who are determined to suppress the empowerment of women under extremist interpretations of Sharial law.
Last month, a local Taliban commander issued a grave warning threatening to kill every girl attending classes after January 15 and to destroy the schools they are enrolled in. “
"A local Taliban leader, Shah Durran, announced the ban in December, telling families they must stop sending their daughters to school by January 15 or the girls will be killed."
OPINION: When Muslims kill, torture, threaten other Muslims; the pc world turns a blind eye.
Just another day of political correctness and jihad...
Liberals and terrorists bow to the same god...
Mass Extermination throughout Afghanistan and the lawless Northern Territory of Pakistan is probably the only sane method of preserving western civilization.
Indeed, where are the feminists? Oh, that’s right, the fact that Augusta Country Club doesn’t admin female members is more important.
Oppression of women doesn’t count unless it can be blamed upon the United States.
Feminists are Leftists first and multi-culturalism is the Holy Grail that trumps even the interests of group they purport to defend.
Any culture that would harm little girls is by definition a pathogen that must be eradicated, plain and simple.
Neh, Abu Hussein aka Zero will be a guest speaker and everyone will sing “Blow the Big Buddha,” again and “Kumbaya.”
