Had the Taliban trained Pashtun people in Khost and Paktika, the two provinces which were hit by recent earthquakes, in how to deal with earthquakes, the number of casualties would have been probably much less. But instead they are recruiting mainly Pashtun people as terrorists fighters against people of other ethnicities. In fact, most of the Haqqani terrorists are from those two Afghan provinces, Khost and Paktika. That’s why praying without acting accordingly is useless and that's why in aftershocks last Friday an additional number of people died in those two provinces of Afghanistan.

An analysis of 8 Sobh news channel, 8 am:

Earthquakes in Afghanistan: Natural Disasters and Hate-Motivated Behaviors of People

cropped-HashteSubh-Eng-32x32.jpgBy Hasht-E Subh On Jun 25, 2022

The earthquake in Paktika and Khost provinces in eastern Afghanistan proved how vulnerable the people are to natural disasters and how incompetent the illegitimate rulers are to help the people in such a situation.

Afghanistan has witnessed deadly and devastating earthquakes in the southern and eastern parts of the country. Geologists define the causes behind earthquake as the movement of large geological massifs that are separated by an invisible boundary, and this boundary is known in geology as the fault line. Parts of Afghanistan, like many parts of the world, are on fault lines and are always vulnerable. But the case with developing and under developed countries like Afghanistan is different. In developing countries, in addition to specific construction standard that are being applied, the citizens are being trained specifically on how to react to such an events and national disasters.

But more dangerous than the activation of natural faults and the resulting earthquakes is the activation of social faults that got viral on social media, exposing the intense and growing ethnic hatred among the citizens of Afghanistan. These reactions indicated how deep gapes are between the different ethnics. If some people from a particular ethnic being victimized, instead of sympathizing and cooperating with the victims, the others on the other part of the country consider it a clear sign of divine wrath, which seems to be in response to crimes against humanity that a particular group affiliated with an ethnic commits in different parts of the country. The afflicted are not considered worthy of sympathy. Of course, such a reaction was morally wrong, and many condemned it, especially since natural events are subject to logic, and in addition, crime is an individual responsibility and cannot be generalized to an entire nation or region. This event, however, from a sociological point of view, showed a deep rift that has opened its mouth in this soil and exposes the failure of the nationalization process. A process that has divided the country into bloody, vindictive, and vengeful islands.

Why has Afghanistan fallen into this situation and who is responsible for this? A number of scholars trace the origins of this situation back to the early twentieth century. Once upon a time, post-independence Afghanistan decided to take the path of nation-state, but instead of turning to a mosaic structure that represented the identity of all the inhabitants of the country, it established a flawed nationalism based on which Large segment of the people of this land were eliminated and denied. Others argue that the Forty Years’ War made ethnicity the backbone of politics and that tribal claims outweighed all other claims. Some also blame the technocrats who returned from the republic during the Republican era, who, due to the lack of a social base, resorted to ethnic leverage and sought to gain votes and share power by fueling these tensions. Some believe that the rise of the Taliban, both in the 1990s and in the present, has been the strongest factor in escalating tensions and spreading hatred, as ethnicism has never been used by any party or faction to this naked and disgusting measure. All of these factors so significantly fueling the current situation approach of the people towards each other. Social faults are far more destructive than natural faults, particularly when the faults are argued based on ethnicity. They could turn Afghanistan into another Balkans. The nightmare is that the Taliban are increasing the severity and fuel these faults every day.

Iran Sends Medical Aid to Quake-Hit Afghanistan
TEHRAN -- Foreign Minister Hussein Amir-Abdollahian says Iran is ready to provide more medical assistance to Afghanistan in the wake of a devastating earthquake that has killed more than 1,150 people and caused enormous damage.
Iran dispatched two cargo planes carrying first aid supplies to its neighbor after the Wednesday disaster.
“Like in the past, we stand by Afghanistan’s honorable and patient people,” Amir-Abdollahian told the Taliban government’s acting foreign minister Amir Khan Muttaqi over the phone.

Iran’s ambassador and permanent representative to the United Nations, urged the United States to unfreeze the assets belonging to the Afghan people.

Quote

The Biden administration’s decision to freeze Afghanistan’s nearly $9 billion assets and distribute some part of it as compensation to the victims of the 9/11 attacks has been strongly denounced by human rights activists.
On Thursday, Majid Takht Ravanchi, Iran’s ambassador and permanent representative to the United Nations, urged the United States to unfreeze the assets belonging to the Afghan people.

 

Quote

“As we have repeatedly stated, Afghanistan’s frozen assets belong to the Afghan people, and their release, which is crucial for helping the Afghan economy and saving lives, should not be politicized or conditional in any way,” he said in an address to the UN Security Council on the situation in Afghanistan.

Quote

We are all from Allah, and indeed to Him we shall return (Holy Quran)

Patient and long-suffering nation of Afghanistan,

The news of the earthquake in eastern Afghanistan and the death of a number of Muslims in the noble neighbour of the Iranian nation was heart-breaking. I offer my condolences to the people of Afghanistan for this tragic incident and pray for the victims. I am very sorry that years of the US occupation has hindered the development of urban and rural infrastructure in Afghanistan, and this issue has made it difficult today to provide relief to the people hit by the earthquake. I have assigned a mission to the Red Crescent Society to be as active as possible in the process of helping the earthquake-hit people and you, dear people. Other capacities in Iran will certainly be used to help our eastern neighbour. The people and the government of Iran are by your side and will fulfil its neighbourliness duty in this great affliction.

Israel's presence in Afghanistan; Relief or influence?

Quote
While the presence of the Zionist regime can be seen under the pretext of helping the earthquake-stricken areas of Afghanistan, a simple analysis shows that the purpose of this presence is not to provide relief, but to infiltrate.
Afghan Voice Agency (AVA): A non-governmental aid organization of the Zionist regime called "IsraAID" has announced that it is working for a humanitarian aids with earthquake stricken areas of Afghanistan that occurred last week in eastern Afghanistan with 1000 death and at least 2,000 injured.
 
Israeli New agency (C-21) quoted Youtman Polizter, chief executive of the institute said: "This activity is part of the organization's commitment to providing assistance in times of international crisis, and we are looking for lasting relationships with the victims.
 

There are a few things to consider about the so-called organization's efforts to provide relief to earthquake victims in the eastern provinces of Afghanistan;

Quote

First, it seems that it is an attempt to legitimize the Zionist regime in the eyes of the public before these aids are collected and sent to these areas with a humanitarian purpose.

 

Quote

The second aspect that can be followed in this issue is that in the same report, it is stated that this institute was involved in the withdrawal of some Afghans from Kabul.
 
After the fall of Ashraf Ghani's government, the institute evacated167 vulnerable Afghans from Kabul to Albania and the UAE, Youtman Polizter said.

 

Quote

In addition, Youtman Polizter acknowledged that the organization is currently in contact with 1,000 Afghan nationals living in Albania[a nest for ISIS/Daesh  & MEK terrorists] , which has provided them with significant information about the Afghan people. He added that they have ongoing contacts with earthquake victims in the program

 

Quote

Programs that clearly and recklessly announce the indirect efforts of the Zionist regime in the form of non-governmental organizations and aid organizations to expand the regime's influence in Islamic countries.
 
In another program, which can be evaluated in this regard, the Zionist regime had allocated $ 500,000 to the Afghan refugees in Tajikistan through the United Nations.

 

 

 

Quote

 
If the aid of this Israeli organization reaches Afghanistan, it will be the first time that Afghan citizens will receive aid directly at the address of the child-killing Zionist regime.

And the last point about this news is the possible reaction of the Islamic Emirate to it. The Islamic Emirate has not yet commented on the matter, and it is unclear how they will react to the aids from the Israelis.
