Taliban Shoot 14 Year-Old Schoolgirl Peace Activist in the Head (Video)

Taliban gunmen shot schoolgirl peace activist Malala Yousafzai in the head as she rode to school on her bus. The Taliban said it shot the schoolgirl for advocating girls’ rights.

Hospital staff assist Malala Yousufzai, a 14-year-old schoolgirl who was wounded in a gun attack, at Saidu Sharif Teaching Hospital in the Swat Valley region in northwest Pakistan October 9, 2012. According to authorities, gunmen in Pakistan shot and seriously wounded Yousufzai on Tuesday for speaking out against Taliban militants. (Reuters)

Malala Yousufzai was injured severely in the attack.


    reported, via Orbusmax:

    Taliban gunmen in Pakistan shot and seriously wounded on Tuesday a 14-year-old schoolgirl who rose to fame for speaking out against the militants, authorities said.

    Malala Yousufzai was shot in the head and neck when gunmen fired on her school bus in the Swat valley, northwest of the capital, Islamabad. Two other girls were also wounded, police said.

    Yousufzai became famous for speaking out against the Pakistani Taliban at a time when even the government seemed to be appeasing the hardline Islamists.

    The government agreed to a ceasefire with the Taliban in Swat in early 2009, effectively recognizing insurgent control of the valley whose lakes and mountains had long been a tourist attraction.

    The Taliban set up courts, executed residents and closed girls’ schools, including the one that Yousufzai attended. A documentary team filmed her weeping as she explained her ambition to be a doctor.

    “My friend came to me and said, ‘for God’s sake, answer me honestly, is our school going to be attacked by the Taliban?’,” Yousufzai, then 11, wrote in a blog published by the BBC.

    “During the morning assembly we were told not to wear colorful clothes as the Taliban would object.”

    The army launched an offensive and retook control of Swat later that year, and Yousufzai later received the country’s highest civilian award. She was also nominated for international awards for child activists.

    Here is video of the young girls in the hospital after the Taliban attack.

    Where is Code Pink? Where are the liberal women activists? Where are the people to speak out against this murderous crime?

And think of how many of our soldiers who were killed when with Pakistani soldiers up in the mountains fighting it out with Taliban terrorists supposedly guarding Bin Laden, died for nothing but a roose cooked up by Pakistan. They owe us big time. We don’t owe them a damn thing except a good bombing.

    Code Pink is off to protest Mitt Romney. Hillary “HERSELF” Clinton and the rest of the State Department are out looking for a country called “United States of America”. They heard a rumor such a country exists, but they haven’t found any evidence as yet.

    In the land of “mentally unstable” – by D. Asghar

    [When the news reached the Twitterverse that a man was burnt alive in Bahawalpur, it just created a cycle of shock and disbelief. Very regretfully, this scribe was not shocked one bit. Knowing full well, what we are capable of and how low we have stooped in the past, this was just part of the ongoing continuum.

    The irony of the matter is, that a person who was supposedly and reportedly, mentally unstable was found desecrating the pages of Holy Quran. I am no religious scholar, but from what little I know about my faith, such individuals are exempt from all religious obligations, such as prayer, fasting, alms etc. The basis of course is, that these people are not able to decipher between the right and wrong due to their state of mind. Similarly, even the sane people are prohibited from praying, if they are under the influence of any substance, as it mirrors an unstable mind. Hence to expect discretion from such a person is absolutely futile.

    The irony of the matter is, that otherwise sane people who perhaps lead normal lives, were unable to differentiate between a deranged and a normal person. When the deranged individual allegedly desecrated the Holy Book, people were upset beyond belief. The basis of every religion is Good. Good teaches us to maintain sanity at all times and have an unyielding faith in our Creator. Let’s assume for a minute that this allegedly blasphemous act was done by a sane person. What would be the appropriate redress for such an act. Definitely not disobeying the law and threatening police and ultimately burn the person to death.

    A society that is so upset with its own shortcomings, failures and internal fissures, tends to lean towards such barbaric acts. This is in a way all the bottled up frustrations of self humiliation, which erupt in such an inhumane manner on the most vulnerable elements and members of the society.

    But wait why was I not surprised or impacted, as I said earlier. A society that accepts people blown into pieces at places of worship so regularly, where women parade without clothes as a punishment, where rape and sodomy are protected to salvage the family honor, where murderers are garlanded by those who are supposed to advocate law and order and where religion is used and misused to silence dissent must be truly INSANE. So in a land of mentally unstable, if one more person was burnt alive why mourn this loss. Its not the first time that this incident occurred and trust me, it would not be the last either. Expecting sanity from an insane society is insanity, isn’t it?]


  • This is how terrorism is done in the muslim world. Attack women, children. Where are the MUSLIMS who are speaking out against this crime? Where are the so-called moderate muslims who decry violence? Are they decrying?

  • Hal Jordan

    Why do the people of Pakistan allow the Taliban to continue to live and influence their lives? After something like this, you would think that any group of parents would arm themselves and declare open season on these murderers. How many more innocent girls and women must die or be mutilated before the Pakistani people rise up and shout “ENOUGH!!!”?

  • Robert

    These are the unhumans that Obama and Hillary think can be reasoned with.

    And we are supposed to think that only a “small subset” of the “vast majority of peace loving moslems” is responsible for these re-occuring “tragedies”.

    But there will be no demonstrations across the subcivilized cultures as there were against cartoons, a book-burning, or a movie.

    The leaders of the mosques, neither and none of which are in any way holy, and which do represent the core of this twisted and hateful ideology, will not speak out en masse against the murderous advancement of their totalitarian regime.

    There will be no riots nor demonstrations this Friday.

    Until our political class, news media, and academics realize this and act upon it and begin to speak against the entirety of the encroaching totalitarianism, the atrocities will continue, as of now unchallenged by the world.

    Muslim Brotherhood ‘infiltrated’ U.S. gov’t

    [The Muslim Brotherhood is a radical Islamist organization that has
    successfully penetrated both political parties and the delicate areas
    of defense and national security.

    Retired U.S. Army Lt. Gen. William “Jerry” Boykin, executive vice president of the Family Research Council, told WND’s Greg Corombos that people with connections to the Muslim Brotherhood are in vital positions within every significant area of the U.S. government. He specifically cited high security clearances for such people in the Pentagon and the Department of Homeland Security.

    He said neither Republicans nor Democrats want to protest
    too loudly over concerns of being branded intolerant.

    Boykin said Republicans proved their weakness on the issue by roundly condemning Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., for sounding the alarm on this issue and specifically wondering about the Brotherhood ties of Huma Abedin, a top assistant to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.]

    This is Islam, it is the face of Islam, it is Islam as it exists in the world today.

    Anyone who says otherwise is not addressing the reality of ruination spreading across the world. They may quote some theological construct of disapproval, but that does not stand against the real-world imposition of ideology by force.

    Untill physical force is directed at mosques and their leaders, these atrocites will continue. Approval is shown by the lack of outrage and demonstrations against the perpretrators.

  • Liberals are cowards. Ask Madonna. They don’t want to target people who are monsters for fear of being attacked. They like targeting people they know will take it in the shorts over and over.

    Hey, I’ve said Christians would get more respect if we started acting like Muslims.

    Burn an embassy, blow something up, kill an innocent or two. Isn’t that the way to get attention, billions in our money and respect?

    If Christians did, suddenly, you’d find less vocal opposition from the Left. Can you imagine Bill Maher’s opening dialogue on his show the night after he woke up with a horse’s head in his bed?

    Mafia gets its, The Columbian cartel got it, the Mexican cartels get it, OWS get it, Mao got it, Stalin got it, Islamic radicals get it,

    why are we shocked? Liberals will always be brave when sacrificing somebody else’s blood and life. When they need to show up to fight, if they do, you see them do things like John Kerry. Three scratches and the hell back out of the fighting before he got hurt so he could do what he really wanted to do, back stab his own men.

    Code Pink will NEVER challenge Islam in a way that will put them in danger.

  • this is the religion of peace. i know because immediately after 9-11-2001 the star-ledger(largest newspaper in new jersey)did an almost year long series of FRONT PAGE articles calling “islam the religion of peace.”

    this will shortly become commonplace behavior in the united states thanks to the politicans that are importing these people into our country to become their future supporters.

    code pink does have a website codepink.org maybe people could ask they directly why they don’t protest this kind of behavior by people they support.

  • MT Geoff

    Islam is not the Religion of Peace that some claim it to be. We know that. At one time, Christianity was hardly the Religion of Peace. Biblical Israel in its heyday was a warrior nation. Sikhism is a warrior religion. I can feel bitter and angry about an incident like this, I can worry about Islam’s affect on its followers and others, and still hope for Islam and its followers to learn a better path. Others have done so.

  • Formmb

    I have only agreed with Bill Mahr on 1 thing ever. When he said our way was better than the Muslims he was 100% correct. In everything else he is a complete idiot.

    re: where are the liberal women activists who were just over there in Imran Khan’s failed anti-drone peace march? I can say where one prominent one was on this, b/c I saw on Twitter earlier today that as of about 7 hours of many, many Pakistani tweeps slamming the Taliban & Imran Khan & supporting women & children rights, activist Muslim convert Lauren Booth (hijab-wearing sister-in-law of Tony Blair, UK) shockingly makes her first two tweets of the day rather jubilant & thanking Imran Khan (who supports the Taliban), and said zero about Malala (then in critical condition) & the other victims. (then I got off Twitter, so don’t know what happened after that). Reminded me of Obama’s happy shout-out after the Fort Hood massacre.

  • owl

    #3 Don’t You Dare go there. Bush did more for blacks and women rights than all the Dems put together. He did not just talk. He walked the walk. He also did his all in the wars. A very good man. I believe that his talk of ‘religion of peace’ did not stop him from waging wars that would help protect us. He placed us between Iran and Syria while taking out a known USA terrorist paying hater, killed zazillions of enemies, defanged the Libyan nut and left Egypt in place. Even Afghan was in such better shape before Obama shot it all to hell and gave everything, including Iraq away.

    Yep. You asked the right questions Jim.

    Where are the Code Pink Vaginas? All these so called women rights organizations have been as discredited as the Scoopers.

    I believe that Obama & Dem Scoopers support women slavery. That simple. Look at their record. It is disgusting.

    They are not stupid. They will not offend a head chopper. Show me one instance where these brave human rights activists or women rights activists ever put their mouths in danger by protesting for the ones that need it. Fathers have killed their daughters HERE in this country. Do you see or hear them about this slavery? Chicken livered political hacks.

    Obama’s ring: ‘There is no god but Allah’

    Barry Dunham Soetoro Barack Hussein Obama
    ….(by any other factual or fictional names)….

    my bottom line:

    the who, what, where, when, why, or how of Obama is totally
    irrelevant, what is extremely relevant is what this person has
    done, is still doing, and will continue to do to America, period..





    Part 1: Patriots Try to Warn Clueless Americans:

    As a kind of a “public announcement”
    Just a “heads up” for inquiring minds,
    Perhaps we could “talk” for a minute,
    ‘Though we know you have so little time.
    There are game shows to watch;
    And those sports—What demands!
    You could spend your whole life on TV
    And hey, girl, who’s the hottest?
    What’s the latest? Is it true what they said?
    “Staying hip is much harder than it seems!

    Part 2: The “entitled” say: “Shria Sounds Great”

    Well, we were all set for some silly election,
    That we knew that Obama would win,
    When those guys from the East got all crazy,
    ‘Cause they claimed that our movies were “sin”
    Would they “cool it”, take a “chill pill”,
    Or just “go with flow”? No, they went nuts!
    Killed our guys, burned our flags, yelled all day!
    All that sneering and strutting didn’t matter so much,
    We all figured they’d just go away.
    Then…their preachers said: “There’s hell to pay!

    Now, you KNOW we are hip with religion–
    “Live and let live” is our thing,
    But the stuff they were screaming on Prime Time TV,
    Was a “little bit much”, doncha think?
    Still, we’re sure we can renounce the faith of our past,
    After all, we’d “THE WON” as our God.
    He was sexy and smart (with that teleprompter thing)
    Every time that he spoke, we were AWED!
    So if the MEDIA, and the STARS, and “Our Man”
    Say “It’s cool”—we can quickly embrace a new law!

    Part 3: One Last Effort for Freedom of Speech and Religion

    Well, to get your new groove, we’re preparing
    You now, to get this “great future” on track.
    For the girls, it’s remarkably simply,
    You can have any Burka that’s black!
    True, you’ll not have the time to “keep current”
    ‘Cause your man keeps you flat on your back!
    Now you guys may get fit with a collar,
    Although “gelding’s” been known to occur.
    Still, we hope that you won’t swear or holler,
    Cause those penalties get more severe.
    [And be very, very sure you’re not queer!]

    Well, “To hell” as they say, “With our worries!”
    After all, you just haven’t a clue,
    That YOUR vote could change your “government” life,
    For to be pampered and worshipped’s your due!
    Drink that Kool-Aid; live with Mom;
    Watch that “aid” roll on in
    “Julia’s life” is the best to be found!
    Then prepare, really fast, to switch sides on the fly,
    Cause’ Shari’a will take us all down,
    And there’s no place that they’ll let us hide.
