Malala Speaks!

Mike L.

Malala Yousufzai, 15, remains defiant in arguing for girls' education, says she's 'getting better, day by day' 
Malala drew the world's attention when she was shot in the head by Taliban militants on Oct. 9 while on her way home from school in northwestern Pakistan. The Islamist group said it targeted her because she promoted girls' education and "Western thinking" and criticized the militant group's behavior when it took over the scenic Swat Valley where she lived

The shooting sparked outrage in Pakistan and many other countries, and her story has captured global attention for the struggle for women's rights in her homeland. In a sign of her impact, the teen made the shortlist for Time magazine's "Person of the Year" for 2012....
Dr. Anwen White, a neurosurgeon who led the operations, said the teen did not suffer any long-lasting cognitive damage. She does not require any further operations and can hopefully return to school soon, White said.
In any war between the 
civilized man and the savage,
support the civilized man.
Support Malala. 
Defeat Jihad.

She's fifteen years old and in recovery from being shot in the head by Islamist fascists.

This is a truly amazing person.


  1. Yeah, as I read this on the bus home I was wondering whether she qualifies as an "Islamophobe." To some, I'm quite sure she does...

  2. The continued moral bankruptcy of the Left once again reasserts itself loudly in its as expected silence.

    1. Welcome Yosef!

      For those of you who do not know, Yosef lives in Hevron with his wife, Melody, and is co-proprietor of Love of the Land.

      I very much welcome Yosef to Israel Thrives and hope that he will join our conversation here. This is a man whose family and friends and colleagues are being defamed not just by Islamists, but by very many Jews.

      What I want is to hear what he has to say.

      I am not the most religious Jew on the planet, by any means, but this is a man that lives in the city of Abraham.

      Thank you, Yosef, for coming by.

      Perhaps we can build a sort-of blog friendship between Hevron and Oakland.
