Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid defended the stoning.
He told the BBC: "Anyone who knows about Islam knows that stoning is in the Koran, and that it is Islamic law. There are people who call it inhuman - but in doing so they insult the Prophet. They want to bring foreign thinking to this country."
I was not talking about freedom of speech, see above.
I disagree, we should not force anything unto anyone. Sure, we should clear all the lies and misconceptions, but I don't think that we can do that by using military forces.
All these dudes who claim islam is a religion of peace are just #$%@wits, just like this "Telletubby" guy in the above statement.
I know, I'm an optimist.

In all honesty, what you are hoping for, as far as a solution goes, is a Utopian society. I am sorry, but this is not how these things work. We are people, sadly, because if we WERE robots then we could all simply be programmed to like each other.
I understand that, but you cannot teach a person to fit in a world society before teaching him/her how to fit in their own society, and there's where things start to become confusing.
As far as teaching the individual to fit into society, we already do! Think about grade school, secondary school... work environments. ALL of this is a learning process for individuals. BUT I was talking on a community-level scale. Teach them as a group... then let them fill in the necessary holes.
I don't know any people from the Middle East, so I cannot comment on that, although I doubt that they "work" in a different way from the people from everywhere else.
And no, most of the people over there do not understand the ability to think for themselves.
That's what I was talking about, how did things become like they are now?
Due to brainwashing techniques, most of the people will think they are following the will of Allah, or other what-not, but not realize that there perspective has been distorted by the people pulling the strings.
