Just how low are the expectations for Islam when no one isÂ surprised by the cold-bloodedÂ murder of Christian doctors byÂ Muslim fundamentalists for trying to help Muslims in need? Â Â (CAIR hasn’t even bothered to denounce the killing).
Even the most basic standards of human decency don’t stand much of a chance against the free hand of Islamic fundamentalism.
They day the group was ambushed, the medical workers wereÂ returningÂ from a 120-mile trek on foot and horseback to treat villagers in the remote Nuristan region.
Intelligence sources told The Sunday Times it appears the Taliban tracked the medical team for days. Other intelligence sources said the group’s Facebook page may have alerted the Taliban to the trekkers’ intentions before they had reached Nuristan.
“It appears the doctors were followed across the mountain passes between Nuristan and Badakhshan by the Taliban. The information we have suggests that this was a targeted killing,” an AfghanÂ security serviceÂ agent told the paper.
Some ofÂ the killersÂ had been trained in Pakistan, police told the newspaper.
In crossing Badakhshan, Little and his other aid workers had no idea they were walking into an area rife with Taliban.
