Dispatch from the Religion of Peace

I used to do these dispatches on a semi-regular basis, but it got so repetitive that I eventually just gave up on it. Sometimes, the RoP outdoes itself in a manner so heinous that it warrants a re-visit to the theme.

Mahgul, a 25-year-old newlywed, was murdered in Herat, a region of western Afghanistan where attacks against women have been on the rise, Afghan police told journalists. Her killing this past week was particularly disturbing because her body was found decapitated outside her marital home.

Police said the arrests on Saturday include her mother-in-law, father-in-law, and her husband. [...]

Police said their investigation has led them to conclude Mahgul was killed because she refused to become a prostitute and that during her four months of marriage she was repeatedly pressured by her mother-in-law to sleep with other men.

Good God, these are the people we are trying to liberate from the Taliban?
