Religion of Peace . . . And Executing 7-Year-Old Boys

By Debbie Schlussel

They claim this seven-year-old boy was “spying.”  More likely is that he refused to participate in Bacha Bazi, the Afghani Muslim custom of forcing young boys to dress and dance like girls, then submit to rape by older men.  In fact, I’d bet on it, that this was the case.


Here’s the story, from CBS News, of yet another blatant act of barbarism in the Afghan war we really aren’t fighting and, therefore, won’t win.  Religion of peace?  More like Religion of Rest in Peace:

Taliban militants accused a seven-year-old boy of spying and hanged him earlier this week in Afghanistan’s southern Helmand province, a local government official tells CBS News.

Provincial government spokesman Daud Ahmadi confirmed the incident which took place on Tuesday in the Taliban stronghold of Sangin, in Helmand. Ahmadi told CBS News’ Fazul Rahim the boy was hanged in public after a Taliban commander read a verdict out loud, accusing the youth of spying for international forces.

Afghan President Hamid Karzai said Thursday that, if confirmed by his national government, the hanging would be “heart breaking and shocking.”

Karzai spoke in Kabul at a joint news conference with Britain’s new Prime Minister David Cameron, who was in town for his first visit as head of state. Cameron said the alleged hanging would be a “horrific crime… a crime against humanity,” if proven.

PUH-LEEZE. This is the same Karzai who, just a month or so ago, was threatening the U.S. he’d join the Taliban. That the Taliban regularly does this shouldn’t be news to him. And, frankly, this incident–and many others like it–make clear that Karzai is not a President of any kind. He’s a useless figurehead who does not control his country. The Taliban does. And, so long as we continue, making nice with villagers and reducing our soldiers to Maitre Ds and construction workers for the Afghanis, we will never beat them and might as well get it. This barbarism is the order of the day in that country.

A local resident in the remote village of Sang e Hissar, in the Sangin valley, tells CBS News he witnessed the hanging. The man says three militants brought the boy before a crowd of about 150 people, read the short verdict, and then hanged him from a tree.

The youngster was the grandson of a respected local elder, the resident tells CBS. According to the villager, the Taliban have intensified their campaign of intimidation in the area in recent months.

A Taliban source in Helmand told CBS News’ Sami Yousafzai on Thursday he was aware of the boy being killed, but that it was a case of a militant settling a personal vendetta against the boy’s family, then using the spying charges as an excuse. The source said he believed the boy’s executor had fled across the border to Pakistan.

The hanging comes as a Taliban commander in neighboring Kandahar province — the Taliban’s traditional home territory — tells CBS News that a suicide attack on a wedding party that left 40 people dead was “collective punishment” for villagers standing up to the Islamic militants’ control in the region.

They are fighting a war and taking no prisoners, not even a seven-year-old kid. We are fighting . . . well, we’re not fighting. We’re in the failed nation-building biz.

And that’s why, no matter what, we’ll continue to lose. We should have blown up that whole town as a lesson to the Afghans about what will happen if they execute a 7-year-old and a whole town of 150 stands by and allows it to happen.

You don’t win without ass-kicking. And if they take out a boy, their whole village should be rubble and bones.

But we simply don’t have the guts. We didn’t under Bush. And we don’t under Obama. “Hearts and minds,” my ass.

And, by the way, don’t think for a second that this kind of Islamic “justice” won’t make its way to the U.S.  It’s already here, waiting for critical mass to be ultimately enacted.  Maybe not in your generation or even your grandkids’ generation, but ultimately it’ll be here because we did nothing to stop these people.

Just another day for the cultists. Like all cultists, members excel by demonstrating they are the most fervent. Unfortunately for civilization and sanity, in Islam that mean demonstrating you are the most blood thirsty.

    The seven year old was probably a pet of some northern alliance sleazebag and he probably was involved in spying on the taliban. Paedophilia is an aspect of northern afghanistan, you know, the land of the northern alliance. the kid probably was trying to be loyal to his sex master and involved himself in espionage and the taliban didn’t like it. if the kid was involved in activity that could have gotten them killed, they likely executed him so that other kids didn’t imagine that it would be ok to take pay or to do the dirty work for their grown male lovers. if the taliban let the kid get away with it, then other kids would join the ranks, the northern alliance would be sure to involve them. the way things went down, the northern alliance would not want to lose another of their lover boys.

Is it me or does Karzi look like that guy from the Stargate movie?

They love death more than we love our children and life. If that is not true evil, I don’t know what is.

cirrus1701 on June 11, 2010 at 6:08 pm

Such horrible, horrible people. So surreal, the way 150 people stand by and watch this.
Although I agree with your point, Debbie, that this truly is an inconceivable crime against humanity, it is not generated by Islamic motivations. First of all, the Taliban is a terrorist organization that has absolutely no morals, and which brings up religion only when it helps propel its personal agenda. Which is to say that it is a backward, degenerate TERRORIST group which should not be allowed to live in the first place. Secondly, the kid obviously was not hanged for “spying”, as you say, but to “settle a vendetta” as quoted from your article. Henceforth, it is apparent that this was completely unjustified, religiously or not.
Although at this point, I would really like Afghanistan to cease to exist. I would recommend a nuclear attack against those mongrels.

MS: Your absurd apologism for Islam is better suited for some other site, say Dhimmi.com. This is about Islam, period. The Taliban is extremely popular throughout the entire country. Wake the heck up. And it’s not about lack of education or poverty. Any dummy who is still parroting that BS 9 years after 9/11 is truly brainless. Countless terrorists and their followers are wealthy and educated. Mohammed Atta, many of the 9/11 hijackers, many terrorists who blow themselves up in Israel. You are truly oblivious. And then there are your many anti-Israel, anti-Semitic comments on this site. You really aren’t wanted here. I’ve banned you several times. Take a hint. Like I said, Dhimmi.com or Stormfront–both better fits for you. DS

MS on June 11, 2010 at 6:43 pm

    ROFLMAO! http://www.dhimmi.com is hilarious!

    The first thing that came into my mind when I ran into this article on drudge was “he threatened to tell” about the rape.

    A muzzie is a muzzie: savage barbaric animals.

    As goes Israel - so goes the World on June 14, 2010 at 12:23 pm

We’re trying to get them to adopt democracy and Western ways. It doesn’t take there. You can’t get the barbarian out of the Muslim. And they hate us – nothing we do for them will ever change how they feel about us. We have two choices – we can win or we can get out. And we’re not in it to win, we should be getting out of the nation building biz in Afghanistan. The British tried and the Russians tried and failed at it. We’re going to end up learning the same lesson.

Islam can’t be reformed.

NormanF on June 11, 2010 at 7:23 pm

Why then Kemal Ataturk proscribe a role for Islam in the Turkish Republic he founded? He knew it couldn’t be reformed. His Islamist descendants are proving him right by undoing his legacy.

NormanF on June 11, 2010 at 7:39 pm

    Absolutely, NormanF. It’s amazing that Muslim elites who should know about Islam are not taken seriously. Thus, the EU knows better than Ataturk, and al-Azhar University “misunderstands” Islam.

    skzion on June 13, 2010 at 7:02 pm

      Ataturk wanted peace at home and peace abroad for the Turks. He found the use of religion for political and personal gain to be contemptible. The Islamists now ruling Turkey are throwing both of those principles out of the window. Secular Turkey eschewed pan-Turkic nationalism or a revival of Ottoman ambitions. The Islamists are trying to build up a Turkey whose values are antithetical to the West and freedom as well as peace and respect for others. We must face the facts squarely: Turkey under the AKP is no longer a friend of America and Israel.

      NormanF on June 13, 2010 at 9:03 pm

Sick savages. I agree, smoke ’em all.

samurai on June 11, 2010 at 9:05 pm

At no other time in recorded history has one nation (USA) possessed the means to utterly liquefy its enemies with virtual impunity and willfully declined to do so. “Collateral damage” be damned. Campaigns for winning hearts and minds are the folly of grinning idiots, elected to political office by altruistic fools. If Helmand Province were to be suddenly rendered uninhabitable for the next 10,000 years, we would have no more trouble from the likes of islam.

Graty Slapchop on June 11, 2010 at 11:58 pm

In three…two…one…It was the Jew’s fault. A Jew woke up somewhere in the world and breathed fresh air, thus a boy in Afghanistan had to put to death.

When I first heard about this, the Bacha Bazi thing immediately came to mind. I think your right on target with your thinking Deb. Also with a 150 onlookers reveling in the hanging, which I’m sure was also part of some celebration complete with food and drink and Bacha Bazi dancers to amuse the crowd before the main event. It is pretty obvious that the majority of the inhabitants have no use for Humanity, thus why are we there? You can tame a monkey but at the end of the day it is still an animal with no concern for you. Liberals still haven’t figured that out yet.

A 7 year-old boy hanged from a tree. Gotta love that “religion of peace”, islam!

If only America didn’t get involved in the USSR-Afghan war, wouldn’t Afghanistan have been better off?

Norman Blitzer on June 12, 2010 at 11:30 pm

Well, you should move to North Korea. You will get the ultimate high there.

Worry01 on June 13, 2010 at 4:08 am

Savages and barbarians. Yes, these are the “moderate” members of the Taliban, who “moderately” murder, rape and maim.

AliceL. on June 13, 2010 at 9:05 am

Debbie you are absolutely correct and our people are no better as far as guts go. This is an entirely different generation. They think they are more caring and I submit that they care less because 30 years ago and before we would have bombed that entire village as we should today. Bunch of gutless wonders. I can’t even imagine how a poor 7 year old kid would feel.

You know though he is with God and if you anger our Lord he will take care of it. They will pay and even death won’t help those cowardly punks because that’s when God will really make them pay.

Thanks for another fantastic truthful article Deb.

Who do you mean by ‘We’? Are you willing to go to that town and kill those folks on your dime? Or do you want somebody else to do your ‘cleansing’ for you? If somebody else, who?

I get that you wanna slaughter folks because residents in their community watched somebody commit an atrocity. How would you feel if somebody wanted to kill you and other folks in your community because some residents watched an atrocity?

Do you have the whole story? Do you trust mainstream news agencies to tell you all the facts? How do you know that this story is not propaganda meant to inflame your emotions and distract your attention from other events or trends?

To abuse an old cliche, hindsight is 20/20. Should we had supported the devils we know rather than the devils we don’t? Sadly, after the fall of the Soviet empire, the Islamic central Asian republics slowly replaced Red Fascism (Communism) with Green Fascism (Islamism). Proof that the smartest liars get to lead the poor and naive.

Proof that on one count, Karl Marx was right about religion. Shame that he didn’t experience Islamic Fascism.

The "Reverend" Jacques on June 14, 2010 at 5:29 am

“Reverend,” I wouldn’t give even that to ol’ Norm. The US was right to use Afghans to weaken the Soviets, as the Soviets were the major enemy then. As for the Afghans being better off under teh Soviets … guffaw!

Anyway, the issue isn’t how well off the Afghans are, but what US interests are.

skzion on June 14, 2010 at 11:18 am

I believe that God will treat the young boy who was hanged graciously, and that his executioners will rot in Hell.

Truth on June 14, 2010 at 12:00 pm

“We should have blown up that whole town as a lesson to the Afghans about what will happen if they execute a 7-year-old”

So they killed one boy and that’s bloodthirsty, but you want to kill a whole town (presumably their children too) and that’s justice!

Tom on September 1, 2010 at 10:09 am

Well, maybe they have taken on Catholic values?

ken on September 3, 2010 at 8:53 am

THis is what is great about Americans. They can put a man on the moon and they can deceive themselves like no one else. Still they insist to accept these animals in our country as decent citizens and call the cult of rapacious savagery a divine religion. When will we stop fooling ourselves?????

N.B.: I have no web site
