Taliban Porn, Taliban Hypocrisy





In the west, the Taliban has an image of being puritans, outraged at western decadence and weak dedication to Islamic values. This image took a hit in the JAWA Report, a site that monitors Muslim extremism. It turns out that Siraj Haqqani, operator of the Haqqani terror network in Afghanistan is a pornographer, who traps and rapes unsuspecting victims. His mode of operation is simple.

First, he goes to a pious village and extols the virtues of suicide bombing. Families who send a son to blow himself up get a bounty. They also get respect in the village. As a reward to the village, Haqqani sends Dr. Hassan Duraz to examine and treat villagers for free. Part of his mission is to keep an eye out for camera worthy females. When his victim is in the office being examined, Dr. Duraz whistles to his accomplices, Dr. Haqqani's cousin and uncle, who set up camera equipment and film a genuine rape in progress. JAWA report continues as follows about Haqqani's murderous hypocrisy.


Siraj Haqqani now had a big problem on his hands. Righteous Muslims, pious Muslims who send other Muslims to martyr themselves in jihad should be above reproach. They should be living a virtuous life in keeping with the tenets of the Qur’an and the Hadith. At the very least, they should be more virtuous than the Infidel they are fighting.

"That’s the way good Muslims would see it, but not Siraj Haqqani. He saw himself as above Islamic law. In a word, he was a hypocrite. But by Islamic standards, what Siraj decided to do next made him even worse.

In order to protect his moral authority, Siraj had Dr. Hassan Duraz killed. He had the girls murdered. He emptied the Haqqani family pornographic video library and burned all the tapes – or so he thought.

While in Afghanistan, I got to know a mid-level Haqqani commander who was becoming increasingly disenchanted with Siraj’s hypocrisy. We spent time together, drank tea and talked as he provided exceptional assistance with my novel, The Apostle, which is loosely based upon the Haqqanis. It is this mid-level commander who managed to save some of the tapes Siraj thought had all been destroyed."


Fortunately, some of the tapes were saved as evidence. A video with the JAWA report has a Muslim sermon condemning the abuse of the faithful. It is interspersed with excerpts from the Taliban porn, with strategically placed black squares to protect the dignity of the victim. Even with the censorship, the video is highly disturbing.

There is a majorityof Muslims who are leading peaceful and blameless lives. The small percentage of murderers, rapists and criminals who hide in pious garb still constitutes tens of millions of people. Whatever strategy the United States uses to combat Islamofascism must include educating the people about the nature of Islamic extremism. Those who consider non Muslims fair game end up being consumed by their own bloodlust. This is the nature of those America is at war with in Afghanistan. It is foolish to be blinded by illusions and wishful dreams. Thinking Muslims are waking up. We should as well. Sphere: Related Content
