Classy: Afghan 'Insurgents' Hang Eight-Year-Old Boy

Whatever you do, AP, don't call them terrorists.
Insurgents in southern Afghanistan hanged an 8-year-old boy six days after they abducted him, the Afghan government said Sunday.

The boy's captors had demanded that his father, a police officer, supply them with a police vehicle and he refused, said a statement from President Hamid Karzai's office. The militants hanged the boy Friday in Helmand province's Gereshk district.

"President Karzai both strongly condemns this act and rejects it as a brutal and cowardly crime that is not acceptable in any religion or culture," the statement said. It referred to the killers as "terrorists," but did not say if they belonged to the Taliban or another of the insurgent movements fighting foreign forces and their Afghan allies.
The word terrorists now gets quotes around it. How quaint.

GOD is watching!

are we ready for his wrath? along with this horrid act, in this horrid country,

we, the US, have elected a president that hates Israel.
Israel is GOD's chosen country and the jews are his chosen people, i am not talking about American jews.

it is written, in the BIBLE, that if you go after Israel, you will not win.

we need to get out of the middle east and also stop foriegn aid to them. let them continue on their own destiny. we don't need to sacrifice our own any longer for these type barbarians.
