As a huge fan of Barack Obama and a dedicated enemy of radical Islam it worried me to hear the American President talk of 'moderate' Taliban. I found myself wondering how they would be graded. Would those who burned girls' schools but did not participate in the global jihad be considered moderate? What about those who believe in stoning women to death and marrying nine-year-old girls but not in suicide bombing-would they be considered moderate? By this measure the men who blew the Bamian Buddhas to smithereens would be considered mere pranksters trying to amuse Allah with a spectacular display of idol smashing.

After the American President made his comment about moderate Taliban he got a response from the Taliban themselves. There is no such thing as moderate Taliban, a Taliban spokesman retorted angrily, unless the President meant the lazy old Muslims who sit idly at home instead of joining the jihad against Jews, Hindus and Americans.

Instead of listening to the 'thinkers' and think tanks in Washington Mr. Obama would do better to listen carefully to what the Islamists themselves say loudly and clearly. He would discover that the objective of the worldwide jihad is to convert the whole world to radical Islam. They believe this is what Allah wants and are ready to die fighting to make Allah's wishes come true so that they can spend Eternity frolicking with those seventy-two virgins in Paradise. Odd, isn't it, that it's alright to get up to all sorts of mischief in heaven but a sin to do the same things on Earth?
