Brave mujaheddin? Gallant knights of Allah? Lions of Islam? No, the jihadis we’re at war with are nothing but damnable barbarians:

Taliban chops off nose, ears of 19-year-old girl for “shaming” her in-laws

“When they cut off my nose and ears, I passed out.” Bibi Aisha, 19, of Afghanistan, who was punished by the Taliban for “shaming” her in-laws when she ran away to escape torturous domestic abuse. Her father sold her to her abusive husband when she was 10.

Don’t worry, there are no graphic pictures behind that link. No guarantees if you follow theirs, however.

And no, I’m not buying that this is “just the Taliban.” Look at atrocities committed by “holy warriors” answering the call of jihad from America to London to Madrid to Iraq to Indonesia and you’ll examples of the same sociopathic, misogynistic, and sick minds, all following the same aggressive, supremacist, and totalitarian creed.

You get three guesses as to which one.
