The original article at http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/asia/afghanistan/6804155/Taliban-can-be-admired-for-their-faith-and-loyalty-says-bishop.html is well worth the read.

Venner actually has a few sensible points. Where his reasoning goes tits-up is in thinking that "conviction to their faith" is a good thing. It is trotted out as if it were utterly obvious to everyone who cared to think about it. Surprise surprise, no challenge from the Torygraph on that one.
