The terrorist group, another headache for the new Afghan government, celebrates the “victory” against the “despotic tyranny” of the West
The last of the actors in the Afghan drama, or the crisis of a failed state, whatever you want to call it, spoke on Wednesday. Al Qaeda released a statement showing its euphoria at the “historic victory” of the Taliban in Afghanistan. And he said that this conquest, together with the withdrawal of US troops, represents an open door to the “liberation of Muslims” from the “despotic tyranny that has been imposed from the West against the Islamic world.”
From the message it is possible to clearly deduce what numerous analysts have suggested in recent days: that the end of the invasion and the chaotic departure of the allied military has given courage to the terrorist organization, which has been hit hard during these two decades of occupation and that apparently only it would keep some small groups scattered in the Afghan territory without a great attack capacity. In fact, the Islamic State is the movement that has perpetrated the bloodiest attacks in the Central Asian country, as happened last Thursday when it killed two hundred people – including thirteen US soldiers – outside the Hamid Karzai airport.
Al Qaeda applauds the “” Taliban victory “and celebrates the reading of the verses of the Koran from the presidential palace in Kabul” after it was freed from American filth. ” “We congratulate the omnipotent and all-powerful, who have humiliated the United States, the standard bearers of lack of belief,” picks up the text, which abounds in derision against Washington. The US “loses its reputation and has been humiliated” by being expelled from the “Islamic land of Afghanistan,” he stresses.
Facing the new regime that will lead the nation from now on, the terrorist organization calls for the “unity of the Afghans around the Islamic Emirate.” “We call on the Afghan nation to adhere to the sharia-based decisions and policies of this blessed Emirate,” said the statement, posted on the As Sahab website.
The remarkable support of Al Qaeda manifested in this communiqué may be long gone right now for the aspirations of the new regime. Although the Taliban and the organization have crossed notable ties – in fact, al Qaeda took refuge in Afghanistan during the previous fundamentalist mandate between 1996 and 2001 – the new Emirate has promised the governments of the world that it will not promote their activities and that since attacks against other countries will not be planned on its territory. The regime is known under the magnifying glass of the West, which fears that the return of the insurgents will make Al Qaeda resurface.
