The total number of schools that the Taliban has bombed is now approaching 1,000. And despite the singularity of this barbarity, there are still many in the U.S. who dare to label the political opposition, which has never bombed any school or anything else, or even the anti-jihad movement, which is working in defense of human rights against precisely this sort of thing, as the equivalent of the Taliban. “Two girls’ schools blown up in Peshawar,” from the Daily Times, September 24 (thanks to all who sent this in):
PESHAWAR: The Taliban on Wednesday blew up two more girls’ schools in the provincial capital amid a security operation against the terrorists in the bordering area of FR Peshawar, police and locals said.
The Taliban bombed five schools in a week’s time in the capital, spreading terror in the school-going children and their parents. Badha Bair Police Station Muharrir Mukamil Shah told Daily Times that the Taliban blew up two girls’ schools at Sulmankhel village of Bada Bhair, a suburb area of Peshawar.
