"Allah Is Great"

Thank you to Gates of Vienna and Vlad Tepes:

This is what our boys died for in Afghanistan: Shariah “justice” as administered by the Taliban. A young woman is condemned to death for adultery, and her father executes the sentence.
Many thanks to Fausta for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for subtitling this news clip from Spanish TV. WARNING: This video is not graphic, but may still be disturbing to sensitive viewers:
0:00These images were captured on amateur video on April 22, 2013 in the
0:10Alkamari [sp?] district, some 50 kilometers from Khamenaun [sp?] military base, where most Spanish troops are stationed in north-east Afghanistan.
0:17A woman accused of adultery is about to be executed in public, and the neighbors have gathered to watch.
0:23A mullah blames the current drought on the woman and her bad behavior:
0:28“You can see for yourselves why it doesn’t rain.
0:34What is the main reason?
0:36The murders, the adulteries, and our bad deeds.”
0:41Another mullah explains they must take justice in their own hands,
0:45because the Afghan government is totally corrupt.
0:48“Normally the government is responsible for deciding and knowing what to do.
0:53But nowadays there’s much corruption in government
0:58and people don’t follow the laws of Islam.”
1:01Finally the sentence is read:
1:03“We, the honest mullahs and community leaders, have decided
1:08that she must be killed, according to Islam.”
1:13The girl’s father will carry out the punishment.
1:21Allah is great!
1:23Allah is great!
1:31Allah is great!
1:34Allah is great! Allah is great!
1:44Allah is great!”
