According to the Jerusalem Post, the Palestinian political-terrorist group HAMAS congratulated the Taliban in Afghanistan for defeating the United States. The Twitter account for HAMAS noted that the Taliban “faced America and its agents, refusing half-solutions with them. The Taliban was not deceived by the slogans of democracy and elections and fake promises. This is a lesson for all oppressed people.” #WePrayMeToo
The Taliban victory represents the HAMAS ideal: the oppression of women; the murder and wiping out of non-Muslim infidels; the violent over-through of a secular liberal society and the installation of sharia law and jihadi culture.
Oppression of Women
The Taliban doesn’t allow women to travel outside without a male escort, receive an education or marry outside of family-approved unions. The penalty for breaking Taliban law ranges from whipping to being put to death.
Afghanistan has around 150 ‘honor killings’ every year, whereby family members kill a sister/mother/daughter for bringing shame to family honor because they dressed inappropriately or refused to marry a designated mate. After HAMAS took over Gaza, the number of honor killings jumped dramatically. In 2011, 2012 and 2013 the numbers jumped from 5 to 13 to 27, respectively. It was projected to jump again in 2014 when news reports silenced publishing the statistics because it hurt public perception of the terrorist group. On a proportionate basis, Gaza had more honor killings than Afghanistan.
Sometimes the family doesn’t take to killing the woman but the “aggrieved” male who was “hurt” by the woman’s rejection, disfigures the woman on his own by pouring acid on her face or cutting off her nose and ears. Roughly 1,500 women each year suffer this fate in Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Cambodia, India and Pakistan. The practice hasn’t been exported to other jihadi societies like Gaza. Yet.
Destroying the Infidels and Installing Sharia Law
While ISIS gained more infamy for destroying pieces of history in Iraq’s museums, the Taliban was already destroying human history in blowing up ‘idols’ before the terrorist attacks of 9/11.
Palestinians have been destroying archeological treasures for a long time. Whether ancient cities in Gaza, biblical treasures from the time of Joshua, or even Joseph’s tomb. On Judaism’s holiest site, the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, Arabs have been excavating underground to create new mosques, destroying Jewish history.
It is not a surprise as the Palestinians have tried to deny Jewish history in Israel repeatedly and outrageously state that Israel is trying to “Judaize” Jerusalem, as if there wasn’t 3,000-years of Jewish history and Jews weren’t the majority of the city since the 1860’s.
HAMAS’s charter makes clear that they want a purely Islamic society that wipes out the Jews.
- “Our struggle against the Jews is very great and very serious.”
- “Israel, Judaism and Jews challenge Islam and the Moslem people.”
- “In face of the Jews’ usurpation of Palestine, it is compulsory that the banner of Jihad be raised“
- “Moslems were able to retrieve the land only when they stood under the wing of their religious banner… This is the only way to liberate Palestine“
Some countries may not be all that upset by the rise of the Taliban and HAMAS as they adopt some worst practices.
Consider the United Kingdom which ignored and enabled Pakistani ‘grooming gangs’ to rape and beat thousands of young women over the past decade. An estimated 1,400 girls in Rotherham were abused and 700 in Newcastle. The press talked about it for a day and then – complete silence.
This is the same England which had the head of the Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn, refer to the terrorist groups HAMAS and Hezbollah as “friends.” These highbrow oppressors of women and Jews enjoy their tea as they watch their friendly jihadists on the ‘tele’.
There’s a creeping jihad in England which is slowly killing democracy like boiling a lobster.
The world must decide on the appropriate response to the new reality of Taliban’s Afghanistan. Will it send money to “rebuild” the way it does to HAMAS’s Gaza? Will it give it succor by recognizing the government with embassies and foreign relations as the countries in Latin America have done for ‘Palestine’? Will it refuse to call out terrorism if the Taliban keeps it local, the way it absolves the crimes against humanity perpetrated regularly by HAMAS?
There may be limits to our ability to combat extremists but there is no excuse for empowering them.
