Hugh Fitzgerald: Why Are We Still In Afghanistan? (Part One)

The withdrawal of U.S. troops from Syria, as well as the recent recommendation from General Stanley McChrystal that we simply continue to “muddle along” in Afghanistan, brought to light again what a pointless and tragic muddle the whole exercise has been. The longest war in which American troops have fought is that in Afghanistan, which […]

The Danger of the Muslim Brotherhood

The Muslim Brotherhood was the first to mobilize the modern-day jihad in Afghanistan, when the Muslim Brotherhood’s leader in Egypt sent an envoy named Kamal al-Sananiri to Pakistan.

Afghanistan: Taliban murder 26 members of Afghan security forces inside mosque for Friday prayers

The victims were Muslims who were praying inside a mosque, but as far as the Taliban are concerned, they’re apostates, for allying with Infidels (in contravention of Qur’an 3:28 and 5:51) and fighting against their fellow Muslims (in contravention of Qur’an 4:92), and so they can lawfully be killed according to Islamic law. “Suicide blast […]

Afghanistan: Muslims murder at least 55 Islamic scholars because they were the wrong kind

It appears likely, unless the Taliban spokesman is lying, that this is the work of the Islamic State, which targeted the Ulema Council for not accepting its authority as the caliphate, thus rendering itself apostate, and thus lawfully killed. “Toll In Afghan Attack Climbs To 55, Taliban Denies Responsibility, RFE/RL, November 21, 2018: Afghan authorities […]

Afghan National Defense and Security Forces member murders one US soldier, wounds another

The Afghan National Defense and Security Forces are supposed to be on our side. One of the elements of the establishment media’s rap sheet on me, which supposedly establishes that I’m a bigoted “Islamophobe,” is that I’ve said that there is no reliable way to distinguish jihadis from peaceful Muslims, because peaceful Muslims have not […]

Afghanistan: Muslim cleric engineered assassination of top General

Afghanistan: Muslim murders 13, injures more than 30, with jihad suicide bombing at election rally

Elections are haram. Sharia should be implemented, and that’s that. No elections necessary, and holding them is an insult to Allah. “Afghan election rally hit by suicide bomber, killing at least 13,” BBC, October 2, 2018: A suicide attacker has killed 13 people and injured more than 30 at an election rally in Nangarhar province – […]

Mullah May Face Stoning For Raping Women on Video

A mullan in Afghanistan who allegedly video taped himself raping several women, could face death by stoning if captured by authorities. He’s on the run right now. But religious leaders are searching for him. Women in Afghanistan aren’t exactly afforded equal rights. Mullah Rasool was a healer who prescribed amulets for clients in Faryab. But […]

Afghanistan: Imam arrested for involvement in jihad bombing attacks

What? A mosque imam? A man who has dedicated his life to understanding Islam properly, was involved in jihad bombing attacks? Pope Francis is undoubtedly on his way to Herat now to explain to this cleric that he is misunderstanding his own religion, and that true Islam and the proper understanding of the Qur’an reject […]
