Taliban insist the slaughter on children was absolutely according to the Quran

Killing of women and children is also in accordance with the teachings of the Prophet. Those who object to this claim can refer to Sahih Bukhari, Volume 5, Hadith 148.

– Taliban Spokesperson Muhammad Khorasani

Sahih Bukhari, Volume 5, Book 58, Number 148:

Some people (i.e. the Jews of Bani bin Quraiza) agreed to accept the verdict of Sad bin Muadh so the Prophet sent for him (i.e. Sad bin Muadh). He came riding a donkey, and when he approached the Mosque, the Prophet said, “Get up for the best amongst you.” or said, “Get up for your chief.” Then the Prophet said, “O Sad! These people have agreed to accept your verdict.” Sad said, “I judge that their warriors should be killed and their children and women should be taken as captives.” The Prophet said, “You have given a judgment similar to Allah’s Judgment (or the King’s judgment).”

They seem to be assuming the kids were old enough to be classified as adults. Otherwise, it was a textbook case of tribal rules: kill the men, enslave the women and children.  You can read similar things in Homer’s Iliad (estimated at eight century BC).

Dark humour from Preoccupied Territory: Taliban Nets Silver Medal In Brutality Games: Pakistani Taliban competitors surprised judges and spectators alike this week by pulling off a surprise finish in the current round of the Brutality Games by attacking a school, narrowly supplanting Hamas in second place and securing the silver to the Islamic State’s gold.

    Imagine how terrible Islam would be if it WASN’T the Religion of Peace.

      I can only imagine how violent Muslims would be if Islam wasn’t the … wait a minute!

    Oh, the Bronze Age! Alright then! So we conclude ISLAM IS A BRONZE AGE SOCIETY.
    Welcome to the 21st century! And don’t bring Bronze Age warriors into our country!

      Yes, the Greeks were getting more squeamish 400 years later. They started to question the old rules.

      Islamic State is going back to far distant past. No doubt it accurately reflects Mo’s time, though. He was in an isolated area.

    Brutality Games – lol. I’d say it’s more of a dead heat between Boko Haram and the Pakistani Taliban. Definitely agree that IS has the gold. I think Hamass will be pushed into fourth place.

    • Frau Katze

      IS gets the gold for sure.

    Ultimate cowardice…killing kids in the name of religion. Unspeakable.

  • Just a thought

    As we know in the West, if you look at a Muslim the wrong way, they go into a rage, and demand you “respect” them. So, if ISIS behavior is “unislamic” and as such is causing mega-disrespect for islam, where is the “islamic” rage against them?

    Obama could not mention “Islam” in his statement about this massacre. Apparently he knows more about Islam than the Taliban. Similarly his sidekick Joe Biden lectured Ayan Hirsi Ali this week on the finer points of Islam. Who knew they were such scholars.
