    Taliban claims to follow Islamic law to the letter. Do the Qur'an and other Islamic teachings really instruct followers to destroy schools and health clinics? Are believers told to go blow up 3000 innocents in the USA? How can any peaceful Muslim accept this? Where are the protests? The violence and stupidity exemplified in this story will continue to build worldwide wherever these "militants" operate freely. Why haven't the "radicals" been kicked out of Islam? Killing and destroying for your god is not tolerated in most religions, and those practicing such crimes are booted out or excommunicated. If Taliban really do follow Islamic teachings to the letter, only big trouble can result as the West and peaceful Muslims resistance intensifies. I fear many more people will die because of these teachings. I hope I'm wrong.
