Is there any doubt these Taliban beasts MUST be killed? The only solution it seems for them is death. Let them reap what they have sown.,2933,444088,00.html

KANDAHAR, Afghanistan ? Armed assailants attacked a man and gouged out his eyes in front of his family during a gruesome assault in southern Afghanistan, officials said Sunday.

Sayed Ghulam, 52, was recovering in a hospital in the country's largest southern city, Kandahar.

Ghulam said three armed men knocked on his door in the Sangin district of Helmand province late Thursday. When he opened the door, they punched him in the face, put the barrel of a Kalashnikov rifle in his mouth and gouged out his eyes with a knife in the presence of his wife and seven children.

"I was crying, along with my children and wife, who was screaming for help, but they didn't listen," Ghulam told The Associated Press from his hospital room in Kandahar.

Ghulam, a farmer who said he raises wheat and popcorn, said he doesn't know why he was attacked. "I don't have any enemies. But they were not letting me talk. They put the AK-47 in my mouth and they were punching me."

Daoud Ahmadi, spokesman for Helmand's governor, blamed Taliban fighters for the attack, saying the militants often kill innocent Afghans.

The word Islam/Islamic is nowhere in the link you provided (unless the Find function from the drop down Edit menu is broken)

...they were motivated by Jewish doctrine? Catholic doctrine? Protestant doctrine? Or could it be an Islamic doctrine after all? Yes, that must be it. After all, they've said that is their motivation. Did you miss that part over the years? Been gone somewhere? OK, let me bring you up to date, they do it because of their Islamic doctrine. See, that's not to hard to define, is it?
