The Taliban are using pages torn from the Koran to package heroin sold on the streets by kids. ISAF forces operating in Souther Afghanistan found children with “pockets of heroin and wads of cash” according to USA Today’s Gregg Zoroya. The heroin was packaged in ripped up pages from Islam’s most holy document. The story also details how the Islamic radicals are using children, aged three and up, as human shields or to plant roadside bombs, as well as peddling drugs to help fund the insurgency. Perhaps the State Department could explain to the Taliban that desecrating the Koran is un-American. That should stop them.
