Taliban Commander Told 9-Year-Old Sister Suicide Vest Would Kill Other People, Not Her


The Point first discussed this story here. The young girl’s age has been given variously as 8, 9 or 10. That’s not unusual in Afghanistan where many people don’t know their birthdays or their exact age.


Now in her own words we can catch a glimpse of the culture of death in Islamic societies that leads to the endless killing fields of Islam.

It was late evening, the mullah was calling for prayers and my brother took me outside and told me to put on this vest. He showed me how to operate it, and I said: “I can’t – what if it doesn’t work?” And he said: ‘It will, don’t worry.’

I was scared and he took the vest back from me and he hit me hard, and I felt scared. Then [he gave me back the vest and] left me near the checkpoint where he said I had to operate it.

I realised it was a suicide vest because it was heavier than a normal one.

He said: “If you operate this on the people at the checkpoint, they will die – you will not die.” But I knew it was a suicide vest and I would die too. Then he went back home – the checkpoint is just near our house.

My father came here and told me to go back and I said: “No, I will kill myself rather than go with you.”

I don’t have a mother, I have a stepmother and she was not very nice to me.

I did everything at home. I cooked, I made bread, I washed clothes, I cleaned the whole house and they still weren’t happy – they would treat me badly, as if I was a slave.

I didn’t go to school because they didn’t let me. I can’t read a word, I can’t pronounce anything. It’s because I wasn’t taught – nobody taught me how… of course I want to go to school.

My brother told me: “You’re here in this world and you will die. You are not here to learn or to do other things or to expect that your word will carry any weight. You are here just to die and do your duty.”

Of course my Dad knew – they were all in it together. [This started with] my Dad first, and then my brothers were included. They were all in it together.

“You are here just to die and do your duty.” That’s the essence of Islam. The preemptive fatalistic acceptance of death and the attempt to triumph over it by a willingness to die while killing others.

    First, it’s the lie – “If you operate this on the people at the checkpoint, they will die – you will not die.”
    Why would he lie? If he is so confident that a martyr’s death leads to paradise then why not just say so?
    Oh, I forgot – paradise is only for men.

    Muslims are scumbags but the Taliban take it to a different level.

    “You are here just to die and do your duty.”

    No, Taliban, you are here to die and do your duty. Your lives are worth nothing because you are sub-human scum.
    Isn’t about time that the filthy, rapist, parasites who call themselves Taliban were completely eradicated from this planet? Isn’t it about time that these retards were all the given the martyrs’ deaths that they so desire?
    I would like to see every single one of them destroyed and I would not shed a single tear for any one of them.

      “Death for allah is the highest of our aspirations”
      Do you think that threatening these pious Muslims with eradication, is even going to impress them in any way?
      Then we have the Quran teaching them that hate and hostility towards the infidel is actually being godly.
      Now how do you defeat it?
      Violence will get you nowhere.

    ISLAM (and Islamists): LYING TO WORLD SINCE 625 AD

  • truebearing

    When someone dies after great suffering, people will say, “at least he’s at peace.” Since living under Islam is essentially a great suffering, maybe death does equal peace for those afflicted, but only because Islam is so evil that even death is preferable.
    Islam is an anti-human, sadistic, death cult. No mercy. No foregiveness. No love. No justice. No truth. It is a cult that is entirely estranged from goodness and God. It just doesn’t get any sicker than Islam, and we have a president who is facilitating its spread in America and around the world.

    He said: “If you operate this on the people at the checkpoint, they will die – you will not die.” Then why don’t you wear it!?

    • Daniel Greenfield

      Somehow I think that thought also went through her head

      • defcon 4

        Didn’t you get the koranic memo? Women are “deficient in intelligence” by allah’s decree.

  • Drakken

    To win in asscrackistan and pakilland, kill every male, and take the females and educate them in western practices, then maybe these savages will have a chance, other than that, nuke it from space, just to be sure. Bottom line, there is no saving these savages.

      Millions of Nazis had to die to stop Nazism.

      • objectivefactsmatter

        I hate when that happens.

    • liberalism is a mental illness

      God bless you brother. Well said.

  • chk

    Cowardly basterds they are. Not fit to live in Western Society. None of them !!!

    • truebearing

      They’re not fit to live anywhere.

    I started to investigate the preIslamic history of Afghanistan. I had no idea that it was once a wealthy, fertile land, that had a long history of Greek emigration and rule. The people were well educated, and if you look at the art you will see strong Greek and Indian influences. Islam murdered the people and the civilization. The story is the same over the entire Middle East. It is the fate of any people that falls to Islam.

    • Daniel Greenfield

      There are still some blondes in Pakistan left over from the Greek days

    Well then, let’s strap a couple of vests on the Obama daughters and send them down the street!!

    • beernotwar

      Enjoy your visit by the Secret Service. As much as I hated the Bush administration I never once wished for, and never witnessed anyone on a liberal blog wish for, the death of Bush’s daughters. We have our own Taliban in this country that is in love with death and violence and unfortunately one of them has learned how to use a keyboard. And others on here upvote this vileness. I can see I won’t be visiting this site again. It makes me question everything in the article I just read.

    All cultures are equal – right

  • Rachel Levy

    Poor little girl. You think you have it bad,and then you see the way some people have it,and live in this world,and you feel guilty you ever felt sorry for yourself.

  • Texas Patriot

    Just keep connecting the dots, Daniel. Maybe someday even Obama will wake up.

  • Hard Little Machine

    Well in the sense that they don’t consider a 9 year old girl to be a human being, he’s technically correct. Good with the bad, I guess.

  • Hugh Janus

    To murder is OK, but suicide isn’t. OK. Morality fail.

  • what the hell is this??

    In the pictures she looks terrified. Can we rescue the innocent victims of this crazy and sadistic ideology? I sure as hell hope so. What terror this girl must have been living in: her own brother and father want her to kill herself. Nazi’s weren’t even this crazy. I can’t believe that the left wingers claim that this is a religion of peace. Buddhism is a religion of peace. I hope the lefties in the world one day realise who they are supporting. Sick sh*t.

    This poor child and to think there are over 100 Sharia courts operating here in the UK subjugating the rights of women. Is this what our ancestors fought to defend?

    • nood2

      Why would, two consenting Muslims, using Sharia in family and civil law disputes, bother you?
      Criminal law is, of course, aside as I like my head right where it is

      • 1Freedom

        There is no consent within Islam only conforming especially for women, recent investigations have shown this to be case.
        From UK Sharia court investigation.
        Wife” He beats me all the time”
        Imam “What did you do that your husband had to beat you?”

        • nood2

          Read above.
          Wife beating is criminal and should be judged in British criminal courts.
          Family and civil matters only in Sharia courts.

          • Daniel Greenfield

            Because Sharia is part of a comprehensive religious system and is not divisible

            Furthermore Islamic law discriminates against women in family cases as well

            Do you think that a judicial system which considers women inferior to men should be allowed to operate?

          • nood2

            Look, I’m opposed to the sharia, for what I think are obvious reasons.
            My point was, by consenting Muslims using sharia courts. Women who use these courts know that they are second class going in, but are conditioned to “that is the Muslim way”
            Muslims living in democracy should have that as an option?

          • http://sultanknish.blogspot.com Daniel Greenfield

            But then how long do we get to keep democracy if a growing portion of the population is already being governed by a totalitarian system.

            We can have a consensual Nazi or Communist mini state in a city, but how long is it going to remain consensual?

            Same problem with Islamic law.

          • nood2

            By the way, I am a fan of your work.
            Keep up the good work and God bless

  • cantonst

    This is what we’re up against. This is what Obama thinks is worth our respect and admiration. This is the movement that is overtaking Europe now. This is what is being acknowledged in our schools. I don’t know the answer.


    Smart girl. Clarity of her thinking and perceiving and instinct for survival amazes me.

    • Daniel Greenfield

      If she hadn’t been, she would be dead

      • SM ISAC

        True, and if she continues to keep her wits about and assess her surroundings absorbing all she can, she may be come out of the hell hole better than just alive. May God be with her, is all I can say.

  • Chelmer

    She is very beautiful. What a lovely girl. What a heartbreaking story.
