 EU ‘consternation’ over Afghan civilian deaths: Brussels

The News

* These EU-wankers in Brussels are so full of s#*t  it makes you wonder if they still live on the same planet. Lets hope the whole circus explodes anytime soon…

BRUSSELS: The French presidency of the European Union on Monday expressed “consternation” after Afghanistan said that more than 90 civilians were killed in US-led air strikes last week.

Brussels said it had “learnt of the high number of civilian deaths with consternation,” according to a statement.

The Afghan cabinet had earlier demanded a renegotiation of agreements regulating the presence of international troops in Afghanistan, seeking a halt to air strikes on civilians, illegal detentions and unilateral house searches, a statement said.

The US-led coalition says Friday’s strikes were targeted at Taliban rebels and 30 of them were killed, although it is investigating claims of civilian casualties.

“The solution is not only military,” French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner also said Monday, eight days after 10 French soldiers were killed during ground fighting in Afghanistan.

Picture of the week: Afghanistan

While the Taliban burn schools and murder aid-workers, there are signs that even soldiers of Allah may have a propensity for the lighter side of life, if only they were free to follow their whims instead of Islam. The balloon man above is is an outstanding example of the entrepreneurial spirit in abject surroundings…

Afghan children raped 'with impunity'; Sharia law prevents accusers from coming forward

* We’ve had many nutroots and Muhammedans who gleefully smear Catholic priests for child abuse. These people ignore the fact that child-abuse is against the law, and when the church tries to cover it up, these scandals usually blow right out in their faces.

 

* Quite different in Islam:

 

Qur’an 24:4 says: “And those who accuse honourable women but bring not four witnesses, scourge them (with) eighty stripes and never (afterward) accept their testimony – They indeed are evil-doers.”

Muhammad announced the “four witnesses” revelation in Sura 24 in order to exonerate Aisha of rumors of adultery, thus supplying a the provision in Sharia law that has served to protect perpetrators of sex crimes. Together with the attitude taken toward women and girls as possessions, it is not difficult to see why “women and girls, especially young girls, are the most unprotected people of Afghanistan.”

Ironically, the suggested solution will undoubtedly be more Sharia, to solve problems created by Sharia.
