Taliban Court in Afghanistan Stones Afghan Couple

Updated on August 17, 2010

Surely, this is a clue about the war in Afghanistan and how it is NOT going well. How many American and other soldiers are there? Hunting down and killing the elusive Taliban ragtag Islamic terrorist? How many billions of US taxpayer money is spent there for our troops and to prop up a puppet, corrupt government? If this was really a success, then, you would NOT have a stoning to death of an Afghan couple sentenced by a Taliban Court!!! Why? Because all of the major areas would be under our control, there would be no Taliban anything in them.

The stoning was the first since the Taliban fled in 2001. They're back.  This is worrisome because the Aghan government is trying to negotiate human rights with them, much to the anger of the US military. Stupid! Karzai Hamid, its president, is becoming more of an enemy to the West every day.

In 2001, the Taliban ruled the country and women were not allowed to leave their home with a male relative. Harsh punishment for crime was the norm.

The recent stoning to death is about a 20 yr. old woman named Sadiqa who was engaged to another man in Kundaz province. However, she met and fell for, a 28 yr. old man, Qayum. He was married. They ran away together, much like in the many movies. Fearful, they took refuge in a friends house for five days, trying to decide what exactly should they do.

The kicker to this is, the Taliban found them. How? a snitch? Why were the Taliban even there? Where were the Americans if this area was secured? Two local Taliban authorities set up a court and quickly condemned to death. The woman was stoned by 150 others until dead. the man followed.

One should note that the the Quran never specifically mentions stoning one to death for adultery.

      whatever, excuses for Islam. Stoning is a crime itself and those that aid in it should be shot.

      Although the Quran (Surah al-Nur 24:2-9) only stipulates 100 lashes for adultery, the Prophet Muhammad reportedly had a number of men and women stoned in his time, which is taken as evidence for those who argue for the codifying of this punishment as Shariah, or Islamic Law.

      Stoning outrages me.

      Muslim countries vary in whether they stone to death or give 100 lashes.

      Obviously, stoning still exists, as was documented in the movie "Sonya M" (Iran) and also last year the stoning in Somalia of a teenage girl who had been raped.

      I believe that after the 2nd Caliph, stoning was allowed, however, it has been repealed in many of the Muslim countries. but not all.

      In countries were stoning is performed, all that is required is the testimony of, I believe, 3 people. No evidence is required.
