This stage of the jihad will come to the West after “hate speech” laws are enacted forbidding people to discuss how Islamic jihadists use the texts and teachings of Islam to justify violence and supremacism. When those laws prove to be inadequate to eradicate “Islamophobia,” the shooting is likely to start.
Meanwhile, if the Taliban aren’t satisfied with the news coverage they’re getting, we could send them one of our pro-jihad journalists — Christiane Amanpour, Niraj Warikoo, Bob Smietana, Kari Huus, any number of people. There are so many, we certainly could spare a few.
“Taliban gun down TV staff in Karachi,” from The Gulf Today, January 19:
ISLAMABAD: Taliban gunmen killed three men working for a private television station in Pakistan’s southern city of Karachi on Friday night, the station and the militant group said.
Gunmen on motorcycles shot dead a technician, guard and driver working for Express News TV, the station said.
Regional Taliban spokesman Sajjad Mohmand claimed responsibility for the attack in a phone call to Reuters. “We will continue to target the media if they do not stop propaganda against Islam and the Taliban,” he said.
Also in Karachi, unknown gunmen shot dead a senior Sunni religious leader and two of his associates.
A police spokesman said attackers sprayed bullets at the car of Usman Yar Khan, the provincial deputy chief of Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam, a religious party headed by Sami Ul Haq known in the West as “father of the Taliban.”
There was no immediate claim of responsibility.
Former Taliban spokesman Ehsanullah Ehsan told the station it had been attacked because the Taliban considered its coverage biased and the Taliban would continue to attack journalists they disagreed with.
“Channels should give coverage to our ideology. Otherwise we will continue attacking the media,” the TV station broadcast him saying.
Express TV was attacked twice last year and several employees were injured.
