Taliban Rule 27: No Pooftas

So now our friends the Taliban have come out with a 30 point rule book

Now, the Taliban has put out a code of conduct for its commanders and fighters — including when to kill teachers and how to prevent sexual abuse.
According to Pakistani journalist Khawar Mehdi Rizvi, who obtained a copy of the 30-point plan and provided it to CNN, the instructions have been issued to district level commanders in Afghanistan in a small handbook.

If you’ve ever wondered when it was ok to kill teachers, as opposed to, say, just beat them, well, just lookie here:

“It is forbidden to work as a teacher under the current puppet regime, because this strengthens the system of the infidels,” says rule 24. And if a teacher refuses a warning to give up his job, reads rule 25, “he must be beaten.”
“If the teacher still continues to instruct contrary to the principles of Islam, the district commander or a group leader must kill him,” it continues.
When schools are burned, the Taliban rules say it is important that religious texts be removed from the buildings first.

Awfully glad that’s settled.
Oh, and there are no gays in Islam, especially not in the chosen purity that is the Taliban. But, in a sign of their infinite mercy and understanding for the infidels, they include this little rule

Along with rules about not smoking cigarettes and not allowing murderers to join the Taliban, there also is this entry: Taliban “are not allowed to take young boys with no facial hair onto the battlefield or into their private quarters.”

Who knew they were Python fans?
You’ve got to love that line about “not allowing murderers to join the Taliban.”
They prefer to make their own, evidently.

  1. So they’ve now come up with their own rules of engagement. How… civilized of them.

    I did a three gallon spit-take when I read that part.

  3. Oh, your name’s not Osama? That’s bound to cause some confusion, isn’t it?
