Thank God.

I hope this young woman heals (as much as possible and builds a good life.

I worry about her safety in the UK. There are enough Jihadi Pakistanis there and it only takes one.

Inga said...

Best of luck to her in her new life. I hope she never returns to Pakistan.

techsan said...

Good thing she wasn't associated with the Christian faith ...or something really tragic might have happened to her due to her country's religion.

BDNYC said...

She has unwittingly supported the cause of school uniforms!

Sim said...

@Inga, although i understand your concern for her, but i'm sure there are hundreds of thousands of girls who want her to come home and continue her movement so that one day they can have the same chance as her.

Nonetheless, she is truly deserving of at least being considered for the Nobel Peace Prize and best of wishes to her for the aspiring work.

To paraphrase Dwight Eisenhower at Buchenwald, some people here may not understand (or not want to understand) what we're fighting for, but what happened to that young lady is what we're fighting against.

with that attitude, Europe would be speaking German and the kid in Greece would be PC.

Sieg Heil.

Inga said...

She can do more good and stay alive in England. She deserves a life after what has happened to her and she can be an inspiration from afar, for many years to come. If she returns to Pakistan her life would be quite short.

edutcher said...

Those people want to take over the world.

Take a look at Pam Geller's website to see how jihad is here, not just Pakistan.

Funny how the She-Wolf of the SS is all gung ho for women in combat, but goes all cut and run at the prospect of some.

They're here, they're in Britain (Londonistan), and they have no problem killing anybody.

Inga said...

Edutcher, the girl is still a teenager and she is not in the military. You're quite brave sitting there in your nursing home room, suggesting she should go back to certain death.

Lem said...

I hope she never returns to Pakistan.

I think you mean the Taliban.

We shouldn't hold an entire country at fault for the deeds of their misguided religious nuts.

techsan said...

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all [wo+]men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among [wo+]Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed" What utter nonsense. How could that mean anything to Pah-kee-stahn? Rubbish.

Lem said...

She said she was looking forward to learning about politics and law.

I'm helping a candidate get elected mayor of the town bordering the one I reside.

Out of 20 to 25 doors I knock on, a good day is when I get to talk to a couple of residents.

What I'm learning about politics is a little disappointing.

AprilApple said...

Wonderful news. The taliban can rot.

Lem said...

The "truth" this girl speaks rings so wonderful because it come from the best we have to offer... sometimes it comes together in a virgin voice (as it where).

Until her story is used and twisted to push an agenda.

We need stories like this girl every so often. If only to remind us of what we are capable of, what we strive for.

Shouting Thomas said...

I know Pam Geller, edutcher. Yes, the jihad is everywhere, including Detroit.

People are not symbols of something.

Let's just pray that this young woman can be left alone to live.

The teenager had a titanium plate and cochlear implant fitted

What?

I said, the teenager had a titanium plate and cochlear implant fitted

William said...

I wish this young lady every good fortune in the world. My dark side tells me that sometime during her stay in England she will encounter a yob who will find some way of expressing his disdain for Pakis. And she will resent that disdain with more bitterness than the head wound.

edutcher said...

Shout, thanks for being civilized about it.

Inga said...

Edutcher, the girl is still a teenager and she is not in the military. You're quite brave sitting there in your nursing home room, suggesting she should go back to certain death.

I never said anything of the kind, but, as The Drill SGT said, what makes her any safer in Londonistan?

So guess what, moron, she still has the same problem and your faux concern and phony high dudgeon are becoming exceedingly tiresome.

That girl isn't safe anywhere. 9/11 proved that. But actually doing something about it isn't on the Lefty agenda so we have to put up with your pre-digested hypocritical bromides.

And who the Hell are you to deny her a chance to go home?

Ever think maybe England is not what she wants, but a safe Pakistan, the place where she was born and where her family lives? Ever think she was campaigning for girls' rights in Pakistan because she sees the Hell the Taliban have made of it and she wants it to stop?

Even if you did you wouldn't care because all you want is anything the Messiah wants.

And girls like that, like everybody else, are expendable; useful only as sockpuppets to advance the agenda.

David said...

She has learned quite a bit already. Talk about the school of hard knocks.

Inga said...

Edbutcher,
As I said, speaking from the safety of your scooter in the nursing home is so so brave.

Lem said...

Anybody watching the final classic?

Its live on the MLB network... its raining in SF... and DR leads PR 2 - O in the 4th.

She can do more good and stay alive in England. She deserves a life after what has happened to her and she can be an inspiration from afar, for many years to come. If she returns to Pakistan her life would be quite short.

I understand where you are coming from, but I have to sorta disagree.

"Sort of" because it is her life, and she can choose what she want.

But she displayed incredible bravery in Pakistan. It is good for her to get a good education. But if she feels she has "paid her dues" and can now rest on her laurels, then she betrays her previous bravery.

How can you face up to such injustice and then say, "It is someone else's turn"?

If you do that, then you aren't brave, and you are enabling injustice.

Not everyone in the world needs to go to Pakistan to battle this injustice, of course. There are many injustices in the world, many causes. There is no need for any one person to try to defeat them all.

But she personally encountered this challenge. She overcame it multiple times...through courage, and through luck. She lived, although shot in the head. She has the gift of extra moments, months, years of life that by all rights, she should not have. If she uses that to spend her days in leisure, then the gift of every moment of her life since the bullet penetrated her skin...is wasted.

All that evil needs to triumph is for good people to do nothing.

She faced evil. She stared it in the eyes. She is intimately familiar with it.

Can she now just do nothing?

I don't think so. I hope not.

If she returns to Pakistan and dies in her quest, her martyrdom will become an even more powerful force for change.

Spare the chickenhawkery.

Better yet, stick it up your pet wussy.

Inga said...

Nathan, as I said upstream, she can do more good and further her cause alive from England as opposed to dead from Pakistan.

Tim said...

She's the face of the terrorized.

And people like her will always be the targets of the terrorists.

But drones and Obama's idiot "smart diplomacy" will never defeat the terrorists, sadly.

The terrorist need to be terrorized as they terrorize others.

Until that happens, we'll be reading about more Malala Yousafzais...

Inga said...

"Nathan, as I said upstream, she can do more good and further her causealive from England as opposed to dead from Pakistan."

Really? She most likely (but not assuredly) increases her chances of survival, but "do more good and further her cause alive from England?" Please enumerate.

Methadras said...

May the good lord bless this girl in her life and recover. And may he damn the sub-human animals who did this to her.

Shouting Thomas said...

Maybe the girl doesn't want to have a cause. Maybe she just wants to go to school.

The article suggests as much.

edutcher said...

She risked her life for it.

I'm willing to bet she still believes in it.

I'm sure the media in Old Blighty is beating the drum to cut and run, too.
