    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?

    My hope to be respectful of Moslems leaves room to hold acts like this in the horror and contempt that they deserve. Islamism — Islamic supremacy — has my scorn.

    Where is Hilary Clinton with threats to withdraw Pakistan’s big bucks we send them? And why do we send them a dime since they lied to us for years about where Bin Laden was? 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.

    As for the paleolithic Taliban, when they’re not off reducing women to chattel status, they’re off buggering goats, sheep and the odd Talibanian.

  • Granny

    Clearly an attempted assassination – and a clear statement about the Taleban.

  • dwd

    At least here when you exercise your freedom of speech you just get FBI agents knocking on your door and hauling you off to jail.

    that’s not fair..

    Islam is a peaceful religion to those Muslims
    who do not espouse Islamism, Sharia Law..


  • Nelle

    Women’s real rights are reduced to being dependent upon the courage of 14 year old girls.
    Code Pink is fluffing up their vagina costumes for another round of relevant Romney-bashing. Hillary is looking for someone who ought to have provided security to Benghazi but didn’t, and whose name isn’t Clinton. Spokesmouths from Hollywood and the networks are busy helping Obama. NOW? So THEN.
    Come on, little girls. Speak up, speak out, truth to power. No one will back you up though. Madonna’s afraid to wear a veil.

  • Ghost

    never forget Mavis Leno (Jay’s wife) seeking publicity for herself yapping about how we ignore the plight of Afghan women back in the ’90s. W. shut her up and she hasn’t been heard from since, not even a word of gratitude… and still waiting for her second coming

    just another liberal hypocrisy for your mental file cabinet

  • RealMc

    worth re-asking:

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

    They are busy worrying about a big yellow bird. Pathetic.

    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.

    Looks here as if Pittsburg has their own taliban wannabees right here in the good ol’ U.S. of A. When and/or if people get enough of this crap it sure as hell ain’t ain’t gonna be pretty.
    And I count six of these pieces of sh*t walking away from the scene(all on camera). Why can’t the news reporters get the simplist facts straight? Dumb-assed reporter keeps saying five when it’s obvious there’s six of the ignorant, jive b*astards who don’t realise or don’t care that the cameras are rolling.
