Afghanistan: Children Murdered for Attending School

There are far more children in Afghan schools now than during the time of the Taliban government.

But the education system is under threat. Schools are becoming targets for violent attacks.

In the past year, more than 140 teachers and students have been killed.

Al Jazeera's Shiulie Ghosh reports. From December 06, 2008

They don't want anyone to be educated, might be a threat to be smart.

It is very commen in religion, especially Christianity and Islam, to keep education / knowledge down.

And I understand why. You cant possible know how the world is and still believe this bullshit in the Bible and the Koran.

While christians may look at this and refer to these people as heathens, they seem to be completely ignorant of their own religious history of crusades, inquisitions, book and library burnings, torture, rape, and conversion by threat of death. Church 'leaders' put to death some of the greatest minds of history simply due to the fact they came to some questioning of bible accuracy. Tyndale was burnt at the stake for daring to print bibles for the common people.

Judaism is equally rotten in it's history with yahweh the maniac tribal god who commanded his 'chosen' to steal, rape and kill their way through the middle east!

Still, self-righteous bigots look at the people of the middle east as heathens and somehow justify the slaughter, even of children, because they reject the christian god. How sad and how much longer can this nonsense continue?
