Pakistani girl shot by Taliban leaves UK hospital

Mike L.

Three months after she was shot in the head for daring to say girls should be able to get an education, a 15-year-old Pakistani hugged her nurses and smiled as she walked out of a Birmingham hospital.

Malala Yousufzai waved to a guard and smiled shyly as she cautiously strode down the hospital corridor talking to nurses in images released Friday by the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham...

The Taliban targeted Malala because of her relentless objection to the group's regressive interpretation of Islam that limits girls' access to education. She was shot while returning home from school in Pakistan's scenic Swat Valley on Oct. 9.

Her case won worldwide recognition, and the teen became a symbol for the struggle for women's rights in Pakistan. In an indication of her reach, she made the shortlist for Time magazine's "Person of the Year" for 2012.

The militants have threatened to target Malala again because they say she promotes "Western thinking"...
By progressive-left standards Malala is clearly an Islamophobe.


  1. And clearly a 'right-wing' one, too.

    (Because all bad things and/or bad people are that.)

    What interesting times we live in. HST got his wish, after all...

    1. HST?

      Hunter S. Thompson??

      btw, if anyone can tell me what the "S" stands for in Harry S Truman, they get a cookie.


    2. Yeah, one of his favorite sign-off lines in his correspondence was to quote the old Chinese proverb-slash-curse, "may you live in interesting times."

      Or at least, I think I recall it was Chinese. Never really looked into it, myself.

      Not sure about Truman, but as three Jewish guys from Brooklyn once said: I go out dapper like the Harry S. Truman. I'm madder than Mad's Alfred E. Neuman. ;-P

  2. And anyone who calls the savages who did this to her and others savages, are labelled racists. Figure that one out. Sometimes I wonder if I live on the same planet as leftists and their buds.

  3. The "S," stands for the exact same thing most Progressives stand for...nothing.
