The new president of the United States has chosen the “high road” by starting the shutdown of Guantanamo Bay thus signaling to the world, there are few consequences for attacking our citizens, withholding information that could save lives or collaborating with the enemy. Our Cultural Relativist in Chief has decided that if we treat them right, perhaps they will treat us right. Maybe President Obama should listen to what our enemies are telling us:

Peshawar, Jan 31 : Tehrik-e-Taliban Swat chief Maulana Fazlullah has said Islam recommends slitting the throat of a man if he is charged with espionage, adding that this is also the Sunnat of the Holy Prophet (PBUH) and his companions acted upon this.

Fazlullah was replying to allegations that the Taliban slits throats of people and even digs up dead bodies of men from graves and then hangs them.

Fazlullah is only one of the many Islamists calling for the mistreatment or even gruesome murder of their enemies (namely us). Many of those voices are much louder than Fazlullah and the implementation of these ideas have been going on since Islam began. Islam apparently takes no prisoners, unless they may be useful as slaves or willing to convert to Islam. If a U.S. soldier comes upon an unarmed suspect, he has a pretty good chance of being captured, put in jail with air conditioning, three meals a day, a Qu’ran, given the ability to pray whenever he wants to, and receive a lawyer – all at the U.S. taxpayer’s expense. However, if a U.S. soldier or agent is captured, he is murdered, beheaded, mutilated, or worse. Perhaps the U.N. should look into berating the Taliban instead of arguing that one of our soldiers threw a Qu’ran in the toilet. They certainly didn’t say anything when a crucifix submerged in urine was funded by taxpayer dollars and upheld as artwork.

I am not sure if even President Obama knows what his plan is. So far, to the Muslim world he has said, “We’ll play nice and if you decide not to, we will give you a very violent slap on the wrist!”

Maulana Fazlullah is known as one of Pakistan’s most wanted terrorists. In 2007, he established a parallel government in 59 villages of Pakistan’s Swat valley with the help of over 4,000 militants. Ultimately the region was conceded to Fazlullah and his Taliban forces in exchange for peace in the region. This treaty was broken by Fazlullah not long after.

Today, Pakistan has sent over 20,000 troops to the Swat Valley in order to restore order. The parallel Shari’a government setup by Fazlullah seems still alive and well with many people afraid to continue their regular jobs, receiving little protection from the Pakistani government. The decapitated body of a police officer hanging in the streets reminds people of the real law in the Swat Valley. 54 have been killed so far. Pakistan is going to have to press harder and keep up the fight against the Taliban in their country. It is one area where the fight against the people has been bitter and effective.
