Swat Valley High: Taliban Spokesman Goes Quasi-Viral
The NEFA Foundation has gotten ahold of an English-language video interview given by a Swat Valley spokesman for the Tehrik-e-Taliban — think of them as a big tent of Taliban factions — apparently recorded on April 27. You can hear Haji Muslim Khan expand on the finer points of Taliban jurisprudence, like torturing a teenage woman in public, and the virtues of killing “collaborators.” He’s happy with the agreement with the Pakistani government to let his band of fanatics rule the Swat Valley (and why wouldn’t he be) but upset with the pace of its implementation. “U.S. forces are on the border with Afghanistan and Pakistan and we are working here to implement the Sharia.”
OK, what about President Obama?
He is enemy, only, of Islam and of the Muslims. So nobody — nobody show to the world about this. Especially Pakistani media. Pakistani media will show, they will turn to the people and show, what he want. What Mr. Obama want. Nobody can reject this. Nobody can reform the United States.
The Taliban has its own Joe the Plumber! Khan goes on to say that he’ll allow “all journalists from the U.S.” to come to Swat. PajamasTV, I’m looking at you. Go after the story of how Obama is a self-hating Muslim.
