Their rules are good if you are not a Muslim Woman which wants to has Hijab on work or you be neutral & supportive about corruptive western agenda likewise LGBT or be Zionist with antisemitism apology card, so therefore there is not too much differnce between Taliban  &  Islamophobe westerner or easterner politicians & governments becuse both groups are two sides of same coin.

The EU's highest court has today again upheld the right of employers to sack Muslim women from their jobs for wearing the headscarf if justified by notion of "neutrality". The ECJ also seems to admit that this is a form of discrimination  pic.twitter.com/mMwYdJoHwr

In a 2017 ruling, the European Union court in Luxembourg had already said that companies may ban staff from wearing headscarves and other visible religious symbols under certain conditions. At the time, this had sparked a huge backlash among faith groups.

Headscarf bans for women at work have been a hotly contested issue in Germany for years, mostly with regard to aspiring teachers at state schools and trainee judges. This has not so far been a major theme in the campaign for this year’s legislative elections.

Head of Macron’s party slams Muslim candidate’s headscarf

Quote

PARIS: The head of French President Emmanuel Macron’s political party has threatened to withdraw support for one of their own candidates in regional elections after she wore a headscarf for a campaign poster.

 

Quote

Guerini reacted on Monday to an election poster of Sara Zemmahi, an engineer standing for the party in the southern city of Montpellier in regional elections that are set to take place on June 20 and 27.

The picture of Zemmahi, who is shown smiling in a white headscarf along with three LREM colleagues, was tweeted by the number two in France’s far-right National Rally (RN) party, Jordan Bardella.

 

Quote

“Wearing ostentatious religious symbols on a campaign document is not compatible with the values of LREM,” Guerini wrote late on Monday in a reply to Bardella.

“Either these candidates change their photo, or LREM will withdraw its support.”

 

Quote

Government spokesman Gabriel Attal backed the ultimatum on France Inter radio on Tuesday, adding that “legally, nothing prevents someone standing in an election from displaying a religious symbol, in this case a headscarf”.

He said it was a “political choice” to have candidates who do not display their religious beliefs.

Salam maybe It's look like that they are looking peaceful at first but on the other hand they hide their hate from each other under a peaceful mask

This is a universal truth about human nature that transcends the division between East and West. Unfortunately, today it is politically incorrect to acknowledge the fact that humans are hard-wired to prefer their immediate biological kin over outsiders, including racial “foreigners.” Of course, the liberal globalist Establishment would like to pretend that human nature, like man’s biology, is ostensibly “evolving” and that with the right incentives and coercive measures mankind can become a single racial (to not mention economic, political, and religious) entity through intermarriage.

The truth is that mankind has never been unified, so in this sense both the liberal globalists and white nationalists are engaging in wishful thinking, preferring an imagined, uniform state to hard history. Any attempt to force men to act against their inborn nature or fitrah—to borrow the Islamic term for the basic concept—will only lead to a cataclysm of inconceivable proportions. We are already seeing strong foretastes of this, amid all the social engineering that the globalist elites are implementing, both in the postmodernist West and soon-to-be-postmodernist East.

As far as “white unity” is concerned, it is as chimerical as “Muslim (or other) unity,” because whites, like political “Muslims,” have fought each other more than their supposedly shared foes. Even “white Christendom” has historically focussed its violent energies inward rather than outward, hence the civilisational struggle between Latinate Catholicism and Greek Orthodoxy, which long predated even the “formal” Schism of 1054, itself a mere codification of longstanding rivalry between Greeks and Romans that preceded Trinitarian Christianity to begin with.

As much as white nationalists (and other groups) like to blame outsiders such as Zionist “Jews” for their predicament, they overlook the fact that subversives such as Zionists merely exploit preexisting baselines to deepen and exacerbate that which has long been present in a society, be it white or nonwhite. The existence of these divisions largely explains why Zionist elites have been so successful, because the Zionists keenly understand human nature and act accordingly, unlike the civilisational masses, who are subject to their respective civilisational delusions and tendencies.

To paraphrase the great Pogo: “We have met the enemy and he is us.”

Precisely. This is why people of different racial—to not mention ethnic and religious—backgrounds always tend to form insular enclaves, even in “melting pots” such as the U.S., the British Commonwealth, Iran, Afghanistan, the Indian subcontinent, and so on. In none of these pluralistic realms does racial, ethnic, or religious intermarriage comprise a majority of all marriages. Even Shia Muslims are no different from Sunnis and non-Muslims in terms of preferring their own racial kindred and nearest of kin, insofar as marriage and economics are concerned. Hazara Shias only marry other Hazara, Pashtun Sunnis other Pashtun, and so on. Even within religions men tend to marry along racial and ethnic lines, hence the absence of interracial marriage between, say, Hazara Shias and non-Hazara Shias.

their regions  even if in similar fashion small groups in Wales & Scotland have a secret war with British white supermacists but BBC as main media of that region denies & hides racism & their clashs with each other by labeling these things likewise “right wing” or “counter-protestors” or clash between hooligans for censoring reality of their civil wars with each other .

To be fair, as a lifelong Westerner I can confidently state that the bolded assertion simply is not true. For centuries the Western media have always tended to side with cosmopolitan investors (usurers) such as bankers and industrialists. The latter are historical products of hermeticism, occultism, and alchemy (Kabbalah, the root of so-called “dialectics”). By definition these men were/are radicals and liberals, not traditionalists. The Crusades effectively sealed the “death-knell” of so-called “Christendom,” giving rise to developments that undermined feudalism and led to the Protestant-dominated Scientific and Industrial (“bourgeois”) Revolutions, thereby undermining the traditionalist Catholic/Orthodox establishment(s).

Unlike the feudal aristocrats, the Zionist-sponsored capitalists never were loyal to any particular place, but only to potential profit, and thus ironically the rise of capitalism—at the expense of feudalism—provided the necessary base for “progressive” (read: modern) ideologies, theories, and practices, including capitalism’s supposed antithesis, socialism. It is the “anti-racists” and “socialists” who are the real antisocial racists, because they oppose civilisational identities, including Islamic, and wish to meld everything into an integrated one-world order. Today’s supranational, Zionist banking elite is finalising the millennia-old objectives of its ancestors. BLM, ANTIFA, mass Sunni immigration to the West, etc. are its latter-day tools.

The problem of Muslim countries is that they prefer social class and ethnicity over qualificaton. The West doesn't have good politicians. But they have good laws. People are not prevented from working. Hindu, Buddhist, Muslim all are allowed to work according to their qualifications more or less. But in many Muslim countries people are prevented from practicing a qualified job. Look, someone asked me here why I quoted from non-Muslim human rights organization. Where is a Muslim human rights organization or source, which I can quote? Taliban ask the same unbelievers/USA, which they threaten to fight, to help them, because they aren't capable to govern. But if they are incapable to govern, why don't they step down?

I also think that part of the problem lies in the fact that most Sunnis are of lower IQ and breeding than Shias, especially Persian and Hazara Shias. The latter actually innovate and are able to run complex societies, whereas Sunnis such as the Taliban are incapable of even basic institutional organisation, let alone virtues such as trust and its corollary, the rule of law. Every Sunni-majority land is a basket-case and closed market, catering chiefly to foreigners, whereas Iran and Hazara-majority portions of Afghanistan actually operate sustainable economies that serve their own nation as well as others. Shias export knowledge, other “Muslims” export terrorism. The Taliban et al. control the drug market, the Iranians develop nuclear energy. Furthermore, the Shias actually rely on their own indigenous knowledge and personnel, whereas the Sunnis always rely on others such as China, the U.S., and/or the EU to do the proverbial “heavy lifting.” While the Iranian economy is increasingly liberalised and in terms of openness resembles the GCC’s over time, the former is far more robust, resilient, and diverse than the latter. As an observant Western bystander I simply know all these things for facts.

Hazaras are quite capable people in terms of education and agriculture etc. The big mistake of Afghans so far has been to rely upon the help of other nations when it came to military self-defense. Now they recognized that all nations East and West, Muslim and non-Muslim abandoned them to the Taliban. You can be capable as much as your want but if sone goons come and steal from you what you have earned then you have to defend yourself.

 There is still hope as people outside of Afghanistan are building up pressure and reorganize the Afghan resistance:

while inside Afghanistan armed resistance against Taliban is getting stronger (video from yesterday): 

 

And noone and no country needs politicians who steal people’s money but when they have to fight, they flee the country, like former governor of Balkh (Mazar), Atta Muhammad Noor and his likes and others have to do the fighting for them. And when the country becomes peaceful again they return.

A word of caution: The Intercept is a known liberal, globalist mouthpiece, affiliated with the Zionist MIC via The Washington Post. It is the “liberal” (majoritarian) wing of the supranational Western Establishment, as opposed to the pseudo-“conservative” controlled minority faction that backs Trump et al. The article that you posted starts by expounding a proven falsehood: that Massoud, Saleh, et al. were/are somehow the CIA et al.’s preferred clients in Afghanistan.

While I personally am at variance with some people here who laud these men as heroes, rather than the tainted and compromised figures that they are, I also stridently oppose the pro-Taliban, pro-Wahhabi–Salafi narrative that likes to smear its foes as Western and/or Zionist puppets, given that the truth lies very much in the reverse.

Nevertheless, I have always noted that Massoud, Saleh, et al. have, for unknown reasons, never separated themselves from the “liberal” Western faction, and have always requested and/or counted on the support of that faction, rather than realising that the West is far more invested in supporting the Taliban et al. than it is in supporting the anti-Taliban “Resistance.”

Unfortunately, too many anti-Taliban figures are merely corrupt opportunists and spoiled liberals—archetypes of “Westoxification”—whose agenda holds as little resonance among ordinary Afghans as the Taliban’s does. Both sides, at the end of the day, pursue anti-Afghan, anti-Islamic agendas on behalf of their respective Western sponsors (factions).

Neither side acts independently. Neither side serves Afghan or Muslim interests.

They depend on foreign financiers, multinational corporations, and arms dealers.

They serve two sides of the same subversive coin: Takfirism and liberalism.

The very fact that Massoud, Saleh, et al. are now relying on the support of the most conspicuous (read: shrillest) neocons in D.C., including Clinton’s secret Benghazi co-conspirator (and anti-Trump, rabidly Zionist) Lindsey Graham, says something about their judgment or character—or both. Their actions only lend further support to my statement(s) above.

This is the same Lindsey Graham who was a major supporter of Obama and Clinton’s Zionist-run “Arab Spring” covert operations that relied on Wahhabi–Salafi mercenaries to overthrow successive governments in the MENA, including those of Libya and Syria.

This is the same Graham who—like virtually all D.C. swamp denizens, be they Ds or Rs—lobbied for the Iraq War.

Yet according to multiple MSM reports Massoud and Saleh are courting pro-neocon and neocon-affiliated lobbyists around Graham to promote another round of Western military interventionism in Afghanistan, ostensibly to help the anti-Taliban “Resistance” fight the very Taliban the West is covertly sponsoring as well.

So as far as can be seen Massoud, Saleh, et al. are merely the “good cop” to the Taliban’s “bad cop,” equally willing to drench Afghanistan in a new sectarian/ethnic bloodbath while pocketing the earnings from safety abroad, much like the Taliban’s cushioned leadership in the GCC.

Both of these odious factions are controlled by Western and Zionist puppeteers.

The Panjsher resistance is not connected to the CIA as this article claims and has never been. Rather it is the other side, Taliban, ISIS etc. connected to foreign intelligence. The reasons are obvious. 
If Panjsher were with CIA, they wouldn’t use weapons from the time of Afghan-Soviet, which can be seen on videos which even the Taliban post, whereas the USA had left its most advanced weapons for the Taliban. Furthermore the Taliban have their lobbying groups in the USA and elsewhere. One of them is Zalmay Khalilzad, a US-Pashtun.

In the following video there is a thorough analysis on why the USA left Afghanistan for the Taliban and how it gave its ok to Pakistan to attack Panjsher via its air force:

https://youtu.be/QHfKKcGixak

In it the speaker gives details on how a new front against Iran is being built.

There is also an audio record online of Siraj ud-din Haqqani, the Taliban interior minister, in which he attacks Shia faith, the Shia concept of Imam Mahdi and Shia personalities like al-Majlisi and al-Kuleini. He uses insults, which is why I don‘t post it here. You can consider that audio record a war declaration on Shia Muslims and Shia Islam by the Taliban from Haqqani.

Also Taliban speaker "Mujahid" has announced that the new Afghan law will be based on Hanafi Fiqh, which means that Ja'fari Fiqh will have no role in Afghanistan under Taliban, despite the fact that Afghanistan has a significant number of Shia population. The Hazaras, Tajik, Uzbak are seeing that day by day their rights under the Taliban are disregarded and the more time passes the more the mask of the Taliban is removed.

At the end of this game there will be no more Hazara, Tajik, Uzbak left in Afghanistan, if everything goes well according to the plans of Pashtun Taliban and their masters.

While partially agreeing with the bolded statement(s), I would hasten to stress that, according to the information at hand, I also think that the reality is murkier than is being acknowledged or portrayed. If Massoud, Saleh, et al. had no ties to Western groups, then they would not be receiving verbal support from the likes of Lindsey Graham, who is an arch-Zionist and imperialist with his own ties to the forces behind the Taliban et al. as well. Currently Graham is even promoting the Panjshir “Resistance” on Fox News, while hosting known anti-Muslim personalities such as Sean Hannity.

Quote

After the Taliban swept into power in Kabul, the South Carolina GOP senator began working behind the scenes to build support in Washington foreign policy circles for Amrullah Saleh, the Afghan opposition leader spearheading the anti-Taliban resistance based in the northeastern province of Panjshir.

...Graham has been working to connect Saleh and Ahmad Massoud, the 32-year-old commander of the de facto resistance forces, with high-ranking U.K. and Indian diplomats as well as influential media figures. That included playing the role of TV booker — Graham secured Saleh an Aug. 27 slot on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show, where he pleaded for American assistance as his forces try to bolster the remnants of the U.S.-backed Afghan government that collapsed last month.

Source

If Massoud, Saleh, et al. were truly independent, anti-imperialist forces, they wouldn’t be receiving such coverage on imperialist MSM. None of the Western elites would be lionising them. Of course, all this does not make the Taliban any better, but it raises questions as to who really controls the so-called Panjshir “Resistance” and whose agenda(s) it is serving. The Panjshir “Resistance” surely knows that the U.S., Israel, Pakistan, Turkey, and the GCC stand behind the Taliban, so one may rightly question why the “Resistance“ is counting on Western “assistance” to fight the Taliban, rather than forming its own, broad-based, indigenous opposition to foreign-backed Takfiri terrorism.

Quote

Still, Graham thinks the longshot resistance is worth betting on, and he wants the Biden administration to give them humanitarian assistance and some logistical support, like satellite phones. "If you continue to put all your eggs in the Taliban basket, you're on the losing side over time," Graham told Politico. "If you start helping different resistance groups, then you'll actually have some leverage with the Taliban."

Source

Why, certainly, Mr. Graham, as if Captain Obvious could not make a similar observation. But again, if Mr. Graham were such an honest supporter of religious minorities against Takfiri extremists, he would have long since cut his ties to John McCain and the bipartisan Zionist lobby, the very force that stands behind the use of Takfiri extremism to accomplish Zionist-dominated Western objectives. Both McCain and Graham have long been very close not only to the Saudi Wahhabis and Turkish/Qatari Ikhwanis, but also to the anti-Iran terrorist cult MKO, often accepting financial contributions and taking at face value “intelligence” from the latter. Additionally, Graham and McCain were part of the bipartisan neocon (read: Zionist) team that engineered the “Arab Spring” through the Sunni-chauvinist Muslim Brotherhood, going so far as to call on Egypt to negotiate with and release anti-Shia Sunni chauvinists tied to the MB.

Make no mistake: Graham and his ilk are not working to salvage the anti-Taliban resistance on behalf of Afghan interests, but are rather seeking to (further) infiltrate, compromise, and co-opt anti-Taliban factions, so as to better serve Western and Zionist interests against Iran, China, Russia, and India. Afghans, as usual, be they pro- or anti-Taliban, are either hopelessly corrupt or hopelessly naïve, so they are once again taking the bait and relying on Western “outsiders” for support. If Massoud, Saleh, et al. are sincerely dedicated to Afghan and Islamic interests, they should immediately and unconditionally cease any and all contacts with Western and Zionist forces, period, and rely instead on the resources of Afghans and their friendly Iranian neighbours, to not mention good-willed elements in China, Russia, India, et al. If and until this happens, Massoud, Saleh, et al. will rightly appear to be little different from the Taliban.

One of my previous posts was about expelling Shia Afghans from their homes. This has already started in the past days. Shias of Kandahar, Lashkar Gah, Daikundi and other places were forced by Taliban to leave their homes. They were not allowed to take their property or money with them.

The following picture is from Daikundi:

Call me a conspiracy theorist but I don't believe the US failed in Afghanistan or in the "Collapse" of Afghanistan.

I see this as a very, very peaceful transfer of power between 2 US friendly political entities. Mullah Ghani Baradar was pulled from prison, moved to Qatar, negotiated with and possibly groomed to take over. These are facts.

US could never come out and say we are replacing the existing gov with the Taliban so the narrative is a "quick and hostile" take over by Taliban. It's has been too peaceful for it to be anything but this.

So the real question is what happens next?

I believe the next target will be Syria (again) but with troops on the ground. There have been a few articles already on "the real story of chemical weapons used by Assad" in the past few months already.

Other option is Iran of course. Look for Afghanistan to offer bases to attack Iran.

But may be I am crazy...

Similar to how many "successful revolutions against colonialism" were simply a perfect handover to neo colonialists while actually sidelining and exterminating the actual parties who were against colonialism and ensuring they never have a chance to get anywhere near leadership.

Silver lining? Perhaps the exposure of buddies for who they really are and how they hand over batons so even the most well meaning ostrich sticking its head in the sand has nowhere to stick it in anymore?

News from Afghanistan:

1) Yesterday a terrorist centre for handling with explosives was officially opened in Badakhshan by the Taliban. This will reestablish Afghanistan as a terrorist export nation. A unit has been sent to Takhar on the border with Tajikistan, which has so far been the only outspoken opponent to Taliban. There is a probability that Taliban might start a world war, as Tajikistan is allied to Russia.

2) Today four "kidnappers" were hanged in public in Herat. No one can verify, if those were real kidnappers, as Taliban don't admit that they execute their opponens. It is also a symbolic act, as this shows that the Taliban can do whatever they want, and this without a fair trial, which there clearly wasn't.

The translation of a comment by Dr. Amin Ahmadi, one of the scientific and intellectual elites of Afghanistan on the recent atrocities of Taliban:

The Taliban are isolating themselves and Afghanistan

The more the Taliban deprive women, tribes, and ordinary citizens of power, public space, and access to opportunities, and puts pressure on the country's Hazara and Shiite communities, the more they isolate Afghanistan and increase the risk of war.

The fundamental problem lies with the Taliban. The Taliban's intellectual apparatus for governance and state-building has resulted in nothing but suffering for themselves and the people of Afghanistan. Taliban's solution does not even work to fight theft and kidnapping, let alone solve other problems. The simplistic Taliban think that the best and most effective way to fight crime is to enforce boundaries, be it even through amputation (of limbs). Research has shown that intimidation is not an effective way to prevent organized crime and professional criminals.

Through its actions both nationally and internationally, the Taliban have exposed their thinking and we can learn from that socially and politically until a true social peace becomes reality.

3) A video from 12 days ago has been published today on the media, as there is no immediate internet connection there for obvious reasons. It shows one of the military leaders of the resistance against the Taliban, Saleh Muhammad Rigestani, a former Afghan commander who is leading one part of the resistance. Surprisingly he is sitting next to a dog on a mountainous place 4500 metres/15000 feet above ground. He says that this dog despite its age and tiredness has stayed loyal to him. This could mean that some (old) people might have left the resistance. The quality is very low. But watch yourselves, if you are interested: https://youtu.be/frEgU99_Eh0

https://www.wsj.com/articles/taliban-evict-hazara-shiite-muslims-from-villages-rewarding-loyalists-11633009762

Article:

KABUL—The Taliban have displaced hundreds of families belonging to Afghanistan’s Shiite Hazara community in central Afghanistan, reinforcing fears of renewed persecution against a minority that suffered under Taliban rule in the past.

The evictions this week in the Gizab district of Uruzgan province follow warnings from the Taliban earlier this month to residents of Kindir and Tagabdar villages that they had nine days to leave their homes. Some 700 Hazara families, representing thousands of people, complied with the Taliban order and fled, according to residents.

Last week, the Taliban governor of Pato district in neighboring Daikundi province, Mullah Musafir, gave a similar warning to two other villages, Shagholja and Khargak, ordering residents to leave their homes in five days. Uruzgan’s and Daikundi’s Taliban rulers, just as most of the Islamist group’s members, hail from the Sunni Pashtun community.

“This is an act of horror,” said Ghulam Hazrat Mohammadi, a tribal elder from Tagabdar. “It only happens to us Hazaras.”

Residents said the Taliban and people supported by them had also seized livestock and crops like wheat and almonds. The Taliban have denied illegally evicting Hazara villagers, saying that the ownership of the land on which the affected families lived is legally disputed. Locals reject that claim.

“We have been living here for generations. Even in the 1990s we used to live here and no Taliban officials forced us to leave our homes,” Mr. Mohammadi said.

Residents of the affected villages said the new settlers were ethnic Pashtuns from Uruzgan province. The affected areas have long been subject to local land disputes. Previous Kabul governments repeatedly redrew provincial lines around Gizab district, eventually splitting it into two, with a rump Gizab falling within Uruzgan and a new district, Pato, in Daikundi.

Regardless of the merits of the land dispute, “the way the Taliban force locals to leave their houses and lands without going through proper legal proceedings is totally illegal,” said Ehsan Qaane, a researcher and legal expert with the Afghanistan Analysts Network, a think tank.

“Shariah law says if there is a dispute over land, the owner is whoever lives on the land, unless the other party can prove otherwise,” he said.

The evictions appear to be an effort by the Taliban to reward their fighters and loyalists after 20 years of war, displaced residents say. Some of the new settlers weren’t Taliban fighters but seized property with the support of the Taliban, they said. The seizures come as the Taliban seek to consolidate their new regime and bolster it against simmering discontent.

The most immediate threat of public resentment comes from economic hardship. Afghanistan’s economy is on the verge of collapse after the U.S. and other foreign nations responded to the Taliban conquest of Kabul by freezing Afghanistan’s foreign reserves abroad and halting most aid.

Elsewhere in the country, non-Hazara Afghans also face threats of displacement, seemingly due to their association with the fallen Afghan republic. In the Firqa area of Kandahar city, the Taliban’s traditional stronghold, hundreds of residents have protested against purported plans to evict them from their homes, with some getting beaten up by Taliban security.

The area, a former military cantonment, is home to many former government employees and security forces. Firqa residents say they believe the Taliban are giving their homes to supporters as a reward for their loyalty.

The Taliban have also amplified concerns among non-Pashtun Afghans that they will be excluded from the new political order, by forming a government that includes very few representatives of other ethnicities and no other political factions.

“What kind of government is this Islamic Emirate?” an elderly man from Khargak village said, using the Taliban’s name for its government. “You waged holy war for 20 years and now you want to eliminate Shiite people?” the man said in a video recorded and shared by fellow villagers. “Aren’t Shiites from this land?”

Hazara leader and former warlord Mohammad Mohaqeq said on Facebook that displacing families just before winter sets in could trigger a humanitarian disaster.

Before taking full control of the country last month, the Taliban ran shadow governments in many rural parts of Afghanistan where they set up their own courts with a local reputation of being more efficient and less corrupt than the government justice system.

Taliban courts were particularly popular among Afghans who used them to resolve land disputes, which many residents said happened quickly and fairly.

The recent evictions stand in contrast to that reputation. Residents from Gizab said they had deeds on their land dating back 50 to 100 years, but that the Taliban had rejected them.

“They say these documents don’t work. Just leave. You’re done,” one resident said.

This week an article about the resistance against terrorist Taliban has been published in the Financial Times:

How Tajikistan became hub for Afghanistan’s resistance
Ousted Afghan government using Tajik capital of Dushanbe as base to plan next steps

September 28, 2021 11:02 pm by Nastassia Astrasheuskaya in Dushanbe

As the international community wrestles over whether to recognise the new Taliban regime in Kabul, one country has quickly made clear where it stands. Neighbouring Tajikistan has emerged as a vocal critic of the government and a hub for Afghan resistance.

Ahmad Massoud, the leader of Afghanistan’s National Resistance Front and the son of Soviet-era resistance leader Ahmad Shah Massoud, Amrullah Saleh, the former vice-president and self-declared acting president, and Abdul Latif Pedram, the leader of the National Congress Party of Afghanistan, have all been given protection in Dushanbe, Tajikistan’s capital.

Afghanistan’s neighbours in central Asia fear the Taliban takeover could unleash radicalism and spur drug trafficking in the region, as well as increase refugee flows. But for Tajikistan in particular, support of the ethnic Tajiks who make up the Afghan resistance and have long faced discrimination, is non-negotiable.

“The whole weight of the negative consequences of the international coalition departure is falling on the shoulders of the neighbouring countries,” said Tajikistan’s president Emomali Rahmon, referring to the US withdrawal last month of its final troops from Afghanistan, ending its 20-year war there.

“If we leave the situation without attention there is a risk of the 2001 situation repeating,” he said, referring to the 9/11 terror attacks in America that precipitated the US involvement in Afghanistan.

The history of the two countries has long been intertwined, with several hundred thousand Tajiks – the second-largest ethnic group in Afghanistan – having sought refuge there during its 1990s civil war.

In a sign of Rahmon’s close ties with resistance leaders, he this month awarded Massoud’s father Tajikistan’s highest honour for his support during the Tajik civil war. Rahmon had supported the opposition Northern Alliance, led by Massoud during the Taliban’s rule in the 1990s.

Speaking on condition of anonymity, a western diplomat in the region said Rahmon could use the Taliban threat to bolster his domestic support and as “a pretext for a further crackdown on the opposition” and the introduction of more counter-terrorism measures.

Resistance
The ousted Afghan government and the resistance, which is fighting the Taliban in Afghanistan’s Panjsher province, are using the Tajikistan capital of Dushanbe as a base to plan their next steps. “We plan to announce formal resistance to the Taliban within a month,” said Pedram, who has a $200,000 Taliban bounty on his head. He and his wife, journalist turned politician Fereshta Hazrati, the cousin of late Ahmad Shah Massoud, lead the resistance council.

Given the Taliban’s reluctance to engage in talks on a federal government, they have no choice but to engage in war, Pedram said. “Either we accept the Islamist state or we resist. Nothing is more important to us than freedom. We cannot afford to live in the circumstances we have under the Islamist state,” he said.

Support for the resistance will grow once it gains momentum, he said. While it is so far only financed by wealthy Afghans, it hopes to gain more backing from Russia, the traditional guarantor of security in central Asia. “We want good relations with all the countries in the region. But of all of them Russia has the most power, no doubt,” he said.

Pedram said the resistance had “very good” contacts with Moscow “beyond the ministerial level” and Rahmon, in power since the collapse of the Soviet Union, is expected to push the resistance’s case with President Vladimir Putin in a forthcoming visit.

But Temur Umarov, a Central Asia expert at the Carnegie Moscow Centre, doubts the resistance can rely on support from Moscow. “Russia understands that the most likely scenario for Afghanistan’s future is one where the Taliban plays the key role there whereas the resistance forces are no longer able to take the power back even in some provinces,” said Umarov.

Still, members of the resistance argue that Afghan resources such as copper, lithium, iron and aluminium offer Moscow an incentive. “It’s also an economic war. The Russians don’t help us for the sake of God, but they will help us for the economy,” Pedram said.

While the broader resistance is beset by infighting, with Pedram and Massoud reluctant to work with Saleh, they are united on the need for global support.

Mohammad Zahir Aghbar, Afghanistan’s ambassador to Tajikistan from the former government and now considered Saleh’s deputy, said: “We don’t want a couple of countries to support us, we want the international community to support us. Because it’s international terrorism we are talking about here and it threatens the whole world.”


It seems that the world is beginning to register the humanitarian crisis following the forceful capture of Afghanistan by the terroris Taliban group sponsored by Qatar and its allies.

Just within 1 month since the capture of Kabul the Taliban have committed numerous war crimes and crimes against humanity in all of Afghanistan, especially in Daikundi against Hazara, in Panjsher against Tajik, and in Kandahar against opposing Pashtun tribes. Not to mention beating women and banning women from working and education.

The current war in Afghanistan has nothing to do with Russia. Russia left in 1989, USA invaded in 2001. The first 10 years were alright. But after that Afghans paid the price for fighting Iran's war in Syria. They had no choice left as they were migrants in Iran and Iran used them. More than 3000 dead Afghans in Syria, every war has twice the number of injured, let's say 10000 Afghan deaths and injured in Syria, which would conclude to 30000 Afghan participants in Syrian war. The USA made Afghans taste it. The only country which would/could have helped them would be USA. Now it's game over.

Iran as an imperial power will use anyone for their goals 

Moral of story do not get used by Iran Arab or Pakistani.

Should have befriend the generous russians otherwise will face their wrath
