“Taliban unveils hardline Afghan constitution,”
“It should be very clear until all our roads are paved, until we have good electricity and good water, and also until we have a better Afghan national army and national police, I don’t want any foreigners to leave Afghanistan,” he said.”
Out with the old Taliban, in with the ALL NEW TALIBAN
The Taliban has published a shadow Afghan constitution outlining an alternative hardline government to that of President Hamid Karzai.
The 23-page document envisages a country where women would remain veiled and uneducated, “un-Islamic thought” would be banned and human rights would be ignored if “contrary with the teachings of Islam”.
* Where is the brain-police?
The Constitution of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, comes days after the Defence Secretary, Des Browne, said that the Taliban will need to take a role in the peace process in Afghanistan.
On freedom of speech the Taliban charter, which is written in Pashto and Dari, is clear: “Every Afghan has the right to express his feelings through his views, writings or through other means in accordance with the law.”
However “un-Islamic thought” is strictly forbidden and “violators will be punished according to sharia” – under the Taliban’s strict interpretation of Islamic teachings.
It provides for the education of women but only within the limits of sharia and stresses that the government will enforce compliance with Sharai Hejab – that women cover fully cover themselves.
The document also stresses the importance of jihad as an obligation for every citizen. It offers the Taliban’s support for the United Nations and upholds human rights – “until it is contrary with the teachings of Islam”.
In reality, of course, the Sharia is not an invention of the Taliban.

* Because Muslim jihadists recognize a useful idiot when they see one:
Muslim jihadist leaders interviewed for a new book were ecstatic about statements from television talk host Rosie O’Donnell about the war in Iraq and the global war on terror, agreeing with her outspoken views.
* Perhaps Rosie could find the fact’s on this: ” Some of them had individual sex, while others preferred group sex. Some of them paid money for sex, while others performed sexual intercourse with males in front of their wives.”Â
“I agree with what this O’Donnell says. …We welcome Rosie O’Donnell to stay among us and to get to know the truth from being here, like many American peace activists are doing,” said Ala Senakreh, West Bank chief of the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades terrorist organization.
* Any chance to keep her there, Ala Senakreh? Can we talk about it?
