The Talaban Rule Book - No kidding.

#1
Found this in the Scotsman.

No buggering of little boys but if they have facial hair you are in the clear. :?
No smoking but loping off the heads of school teachers is ok. 8O

Just plain fcuked up or what?

I'd go with 'or what.'

The report also says: "one of the first things the Taleban movement did when it rose to power in the 90s was to punish commanders who kept boys for sexual pleasure." That and not tolerating child soldiers seems pretty laudable to me.

Also: 'Taleban may not use Jihad equipment or property for personal ends' and 'Mujahideen have no right to confiscate money or personal possessions of civilians.' Lots of these rules seem rather familiar. And frankly, the xenophobic aspect also has its parallels in much of Western society.

Ignore at your peril: the regulations in full
Every Mujahid must abide by the following rules:

• 1. A Taleban commander is permitted to extend an invitation to all Afghans who support infidels so that they may convert to Islam.

• 2. We guarantee to any man, who turns his back on infidels, personal security and the security of his possessions. But if he becomes involved in a dispute, or someone accuses him of something, he must submit to our judiciary.

• 3. Mujahideen who protect new Taleban recruits must inform their commander.

• 4. A convert to the Taleban, who does not behave loyally and becomes a traitor, forfeits our protection.

• 5. A Mujahid who kills a new Taleban recruit will be punished according to Islamic law.

• 6. If a Taleban fighter wants to move to another district he must get permission from his group leader.

• 7. A Mujahid who takes a foreign infidel as prisoner with the consent of a group leader may not exchange him for other prisoners or money.

• 8. A provincial, district or regional commander may not work for a non-governmental organisation or accept money from an NGO.

• 9. Taleban may not use Jihad equipment or property for personal ends.

• 10. Every Taleb is accountable to his superiors in matters of money spending and equipment usage.

• 11. Mujahideen may not sell equipment.

• 12. A group of Mujahideen may not take in Mujahideen from another group to increase their own power.

• 13. Weapons and equipment taken from infidels or their allies must be fairly distributed among the Mujahideen.

• 14. If someone who works with infidels wants to co-operate with Mujahideen, he should not be killed. If he is killed, his murderer must stand before an Islamic court.

• 15. A Mujahid or leader who torments an innocent person must be warned by his superiors. If he does not change he must be thrown out of the Taleban movement.

• 16. It is strictly forbidden to search houses or confiscate weapons without the permission of a district or provincial commander.

• 17. Mujahideen have no right to confiscate money or personal possessions of civilians.

• 18. Mujahideen should refrain from smoking cigarettes.

• 19. Mujahideen are not allowed to take young boys with no facial hair on to the battlefield or into their private quarters.

• 20. If members of the opposition or the civil government wish to be loyal to the Taleban, we may take their conditions into consideration.

• 21. Anyone with a bad reputation or who has killed civilians during the Jihad may not be accepted into the Taleban movement.

• 22. If a Mujahid is found guilty of a crime and his commander has barred him from the group, no other group may take him in.

• 23. If a Mujahid is faced with a problem that is not described in this book, his commander must find a solution in consultation with the group.

• 24. It is forbidden to work as a teacher under the current puppet regime, because this strengthens the system of the infidels. True Muslims should apply to study with a religiously trained teacher and study in a Mosque. Textbooks must come from the period of the Jihad or from the Taleban regime.

• 25. Anyone who works as a teacher for the current puppet regime must receive a warning. If he nevertheless refuses to give up his job, he must be beaten. If the teacher still continues to instruct contrary to the principles of Islam, the district commander or a group leader must kill him.

• 26. Those NGOs that come to the country under the rule of the infidels must be treated as the government is treated. We tolerate none of their activities, whether it be building of streets, bridges, clinics, schools, madrases [schools for Koran study] or other works. If a school fails to heed a warning to close, it must be burned. But all religious books must be secured beforehand.

• 27. [With alleged criminality] As long as a person has not been convicted of espionage and punished for it, no one may take up the issue on their own. Only the district commander is in charge. Witnesses who testify must be in good psychological condition, possess an untarnished religious reputation, and not have committed a major crime.

• 28. No lower-level commander may interfere with contention among the populace. If an argument cannot be resolved, the district or regional commander must handle the matter. The case should be discussed by religious experts or a council of elders. If they find no solution, the case must be referred to religious authorities.

• 29. Every Mujahid must post a watch, day and night.

• 30. The above 29 rules are obligatory. Anyone who offends this code must be judged according to the laws of the Islamic Emirates.

Signed by the highest leader of the Islamic Emirates of Afghan-istan.
Interesting the effect that these wil have on the local population. As I read it, these boil down to the following:

If you support us, we'll protect you;
We keep our own house in order;
Don't co-operate with the government, NGOs, ISAF, etc.

Almost makes them sound reasonable; but actions speak louder than words.

Mmmm rule 29 seems to be the equal of Section 69 of the Army Act 1955

Anything we dont like we will screw you for!

I understand they're also rather tough on passing the port the wrong way.

I just wanna know from where did the scotsman news find this rule book??

A couple of years ago ,Taliban was said to be combletly vanquished.

But suddenly, we hear them establish rules and councils????

I believe this's all lie but...I talked to some muslim friends online about this beard issue,and how a religious ppl like Taliban can suffer homosexuality ....They explain this to me:

- Beards in islam are required as a part of a muslim's looking, some says it's not really compulsory in islam but for extremests like Taliban it cant be ignored so..Each man who neglects this is a disobeying person who shall be boycotted and ignored as if he give up his manhood....Ofcourse for the Mujahideen, they are bounded by every rule and they are the first who applys it.

I dont think they have problems with sex coz they gets married so young their and may be some of them is already married to more than one woman....

• 9. Taleban may not use Jihad equipment or property for personal ends.

• 10. Every Taleb is accountable to his superiors in matters of money spending and equipment usage.

• 11. Mujahideen may not sell equipment.

That sounds very familar. Do you think they have RPG launchers out on 1033's and have to sign for their weapons?
