Afghanistan mulls reinstating stoning for adultery. So much for “coexist.”

I spent two and a half years in Afghanistan as a civilian military adviser in the southern region training and mentoring the Afghan 205th Corps. Being away from my family was tough but I found peace in what I was doing when I would see the little Afghan girls walking to school. To know that we had established an opportunity for them to have a better life made the sacrifice worthwhile.

I remember the first time I saw an Afghan woman driving in Kabul — a smile came over my face. It would incense me beyond imagination when I would see Afghan women donned in the hideous burhka herded into the back of trucks. Sometimes they would be back there with livestock.

That’s where I saw the real “war on women,” not this faux political poll-tested messaging constructed by progressive socialists and radical feminists. I often wonder where are the feminist voices speaking up for the persecution of women in the Islamic world? Nah, I guess that would require courage.

Now, as reported in the UK Telegraph,

Afghanistan is planning to reintroduce public stoning as punishment for adultery 12 years after the Taliban was ousted from power, according to a new draft penal code.

The move has shocked human rights campaigners and will dismay donors who have poured billions of pounds into the country for reconstruction.

It will be viewed as another backwards step at the end of a year that has seen women’s rights undermined, with a slew of legislation and murders of prominent women.

This also comes at a time when Afghan President Hamid Karzai is seeking more restraint on US military operations and the ability to have legal jurisdiction and other concessions from the United States.

I don’t know about you, but I haven’t heard any condemnation from President Obama on this consideration of stoning being reinstated as punishment for adultery — oops, he’s too busy with Magic Johnson and other Hollywood types to be bothered.

Looks like the blood and treasure we spent in Afghanistan did nothing to move that country away from Sharia law. Just another abysmal failure to add to the list. Remember it was President Obama who referred to Afghanistan as “the good war.” Here’s what I think. Next time y’all see someone in a car with a “Coexist” bumper sticker, well, throw a small pebble at it to get their attention –metaphorically.

I have just about stopped commenting on these subjects. I get told all that is not what it seems and all I am doing is crying the “Sky is Falling”. Well I think it is. I am sure that some stories are embellished but there are sources that can be trusted. If all are saying it is quacking then it must be a duck.

Obama is a Muslim so why should he defend them. The only thing is, what is he going to do about the wife?

I’m a Christian by choice. My family didn’t – frankly, they weren’t folks who went to church every week. And my mother was one of the most spiritual people I knew, but she didn’t raise me in the church. So I came to my Christian faith later in life, and it was because the precepts of Jesus Christ spoke to me in terms of the kind of life that I would want to lead – being my brothers’ and sisters’ keeper, treating others as they would treat me. I think also understanding that Jesus Christ dying for my sins spoke… Read more »

Yup, those famous arms will have to covered…..and those fancy clothes worn only in the house, burkas only outside! He’ll likely want a second wife, just to prove he’s a man. She’s in for some big surprises!

Absolutely he is a Muslim. All of us who KNEW that 5 years ago were criticized for ever thinking such a thing. But in my opinion, he’s not only made the mistake and SAID it a few times, but his actions speak louder than words. He IS a Muslim. And anyone who doesn’t GET IT is ignorant!

Pam Obama is first a Neo-communist, second he’s a Muslim. They both have the same goals. Tear down existing establishments, redistribute wealth, institute new government.

He is not really defending them. He lies to us saying he defends them.

I will never ever understand this…RULES OF ENGAGEMENT BS? Wished we had invaded Afghanistan with dozens of divisions of Infantry, Armor, and Artillery …the old fashion type of fighting a damn war, and then keep the resources of that country for ourselves!!

The potential for gold and precious metals….?

According to Islamic jurisprudence under Sharia, the testimony of a woman carries no weight in court. All that needs to happen is that her husband accuses her, shows up with a witness (or not), and she’s convicted. There are communities in the midwest already trying to institute Sharia in the US. I don’t see stoning anytime soon, but never say it can’t happen.

Wonder how Michelle would like to wear a burhka and live under Sharia law. Oh yeah, I forgot that libs are okay with what happens to other people as long as it doesn’t affect them!

I think that’s Obama, Pelosi, and Reid under those ghost sheets. Keep’em there because I’m frankly sick ad nauseam of looking at ALL their faces! And hopefully under the sheets their mouths are duct-taped shut!

Meanwhile, back at the Department of Homeland Security, Mohamed Elibiary, a member of the Advisory Council, said this to user @1776son on a public Twitter timeline: @MohamedElibiary said to @1776son – America and yes I do consider the United States of America an Islamic country with an Islamically compliant constitution. Move On! – 10:33 AM – 31 Oct 13 https://twitter.com/MohamedElibiary/status/395921435471777792 Elibiary went on to say that “sociologically speaking” the Christian right is “similar” to the Muslim Brotherhood. https://twitter.com/MohamedElibiary/status/395932775972208641 @PTD11 said this to him on 21 Nov: Say, @MohamedElibiary didn’t you misuse classified documents and that is why yr security clearance… Read more »

And if you’ll notice, this guy Elibiary claims to be a native of Texas, yet he writes on Twitter much like someone with a distinct, foreign accent. So the question then becomes, rightly so, who is really using that account? Then, there’s this: Mohamed Elibiary EXPOSED by congress as a MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UnqPVZKMEdQ This is in your face and in our backyard. Right now. Today. This is proof he stole classified government documents while the world says, “Look over there! Snowden!”. Not that you shouldn’t be reading about Snowden, but what are we doing about jerks like Elibiary? Nothing. He’s… Read more »

We now have some idea who is in power in that country. He must be working with the taliban. I am beginning to believe those Muslim people who are always hurting people especially women and children are working for the devil. They are Satan spawn.

I’m always amazed that NOW never took up this cause, but Laura Bush has been active in the inequality towards Afghani Women.

I wonder how barry and michelle explain this to their daughters…bet they don’t.

Whoa…..This was settled a couple of thousand years ago when Jesus saved the adulterous woman from being stoned for the lack of a perfect man to throw the first stone. Does this require further explanation ?
