FARAH, AFGHANISTAN – When your terrorist buddies are standing trial what should a good jihadi do? Rescue them of course!
There is an old saying “there is no honour amongst thieves“. This suggests that people engaged in activities akin to criminality cannot be trusted. And they certainly don’t look out for each other. It’s all for one and all for me!
What about terrorists? Is there a sense of ‘brotherhood‘ or loyalty among them? Hmmm, let’s see…
On this day in 2013
Nine Taliban suicide bombers killed themselves and 44 others in an attack on a courtroom in western Afghanistan’s Farah Province where 10 of their comrades were on trial. Thirty-four of the dead were civilians and the rest Afghan security forces. The Taliban claimed all its fighters who were on trial were freed.
We sent several warnings to those in the Farah government, telling them not to work there.Taliban spokesman Qari Yousuf Ahmadi
So, if you are willing to believe that nine Taliban Islamist terrorists killed themselves to free ten of their buddies. I guess their is honour amongst thieves after all!
