-- we have a horrifying story in Pakistan to tell you about where teenage girl is recovering after being shot in the head by -- Taliban gunmen.
All for speaking out in support of education for girls doctors think she will pull through.
The Taliban has vowed to hunt her down and kill her if she lives.
Our next guest says this is not getting enough attention here joining me now is Brooke Goldstein attorney and director of the -- fair project for great to have you here thank you for having -- person just -- tell our viewers about this incredible fourteen year old girl she is in Pakistan she's from Pakistan she has long been a champion.
For girls in fact when she was just -- eleven years old she apparently started a blog.
With the BBC -- -- Nancy she could talk about the Taliban's atrocities what her life has been like.
And as a result she now clings to life because -- Taliban gunman boarded her her school bus and tried to kill her.
Right this is -- most remarkable.
Little girl and it is.
-- horrifying the way that she's been shot and treated.
But it's quite unfortunate that it takes an incident like this to focus the world attention on the fact.
That Islamist terrorist groups from al-Qaeda to the Taliban to Hamas has a lot.
Are engaged in the premeditated.
Murder of innocent Muslim children -- recruiting them as child suicide bombers.
They're using them as human shields and -- directly targeting.
Girls' schools for example and then murdering -- for example we saw in Pakistan merely for wearing a westernized haircut I mean this is.
An incredible symbol of what the Taliban.
Plans to do particularly.
In -- outer villages where they do not want girls to go to school in fact they're willing to killed this girl to prove their point and yet here at home.
You know we're talking about big -- I mean not to trivialize this that this was not spoken -- house at the debates and where we're not talking about this usually during the news cycle why aren't our priorities more focused.
On what the Taliban is planning to do.
You -- -- because nobody wants to be called Islam phobic anyone who was brave enough to speak publicly and openly about the threat of radical Islamic.
How Islamist terrorist groups are using children for military activities.
Are being called Islam phobic and they're also being sued look what happened for example to representative Peter King.
When he did his hearings on homegrown radicalization.
He Somali parents on the stand that testified with tears in their eyes but how -- American born Somali children being kidnapped by al-Qaeda.
And trained as child soldiers abroad.
Peter King was cold and Islam -- -- for advocating that the human rights of Muslim children be protected.
And that's exactly what this is it is a human rights issue is the -- -- That groups like Amnesty International the united nations human rights council have refused to spotlight this issue.
Is there also a feeling that we had hoped fingers crossed.
That the Taliban.
Had somehow all.
On come around it somehow we were going to be able to partner we -- in Afghanistan that they weren't al-Qaeda the Taliban is different than al-Qaeda they're not as brutal they're not as hideous.
I think he'd be fooling yourself.
To believe something like that we've seen over the past ten years group like -- like the Taliban let Hezbollah like Hamas.
They only -- in the same strategy.
Of systematic indoctrination.
And manipulation of Muslim children they're taught -- -- the Middle East through their television through their school textbooks by the political leaders by the religious leaders to hate the west to Revere martyrdom and to take their own lives as suicide bombers for the sake of a violent Jihad.
But if you -- -- -- -- -- sample -- member of the FBI and talk about radical Islam are you say the words Islam and she hunt.
You get fired the word -- and -- -- now being redacted from all counterterrorism training manuals in the State Department this administration refuses to highlight.
How a radical islamists are murdering innocent Muslim children.
And these some -- is sending the green light to these groups that they can continue killing children with impunity.
Let's hope that this young girls.
Near death ends up somehow not being in vain and and allowing us to talk about it more purple team.
Thanks so much for bringing it to our attention -- thank you for having me.
