Karzai is on whose side?
“Karzai criticized the American-led coalition's anti-terror campaign yesterday, deploring the deaths of hundreds of Afghans and appealing for more financial help for his government.”That he believes that bashing our efforts brings increased financial aid (jizya) says more about our appeasing (dhimmi) administration than his duplicity. There’s more:
There’s been a “major offensive against terrorists across southern Afghanistan. More than 600 people, mainly terrorists, have been killed since May.”Clearly that’s good; isn’t it? Not according to Karzai. He says:
Whose side is he on? We are the ones who should me making the demands.
“It is not acceptable for us that in all this fighting, Afghans are dying. In the last three to four weeks, 500 to 600 Afghans were killed. [Even] if they are Taliban, they are sons of this land.”
The Northern Alliance had been in power before the Taliban. Because of their repressive Islamic rule, Afghan expatriate women’s groups like RAWA were opposed to their return. For our defense, which should be the only concern, it's good that we’ve achieved the removal of the sponsors of Al Qaeda training camps. However, we shouldn’t imagine that there is or can be a cultural change as long as Islam is the law of the land. Islam remains the problem. Perhaps our leaders in Washington could learn something about Islam. Would that be too much to ask?
