Rejoinder of the Islamic Emirate regarding Obama’s recent announcement of extension of occupation

1-flag 2As Obama announced to keep nearly ten thousand troops inside Afghanistan till 2016 and protract the occupation, the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan strongly condemns this stance of the American politicians and considers it a clear violation of the religious, national and human rights of the freedom loving people of Afghanistan.

No human law allows anyone to violate the territorial boundaries of a sovereign country, usurp their political independence and bring them under military occupation. As the US authorities blatantly say to protract the occupation of Afghanistan till 2016, these expressions are very ignominious and they must be strongly condemned by those individuals, peoples and governments who are committed to sovereignty and freedom.

The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan has explicitly manifested its stance on behalf of its pious masses about the US occupation i.e. even the presence of a single American soldier inside Afghanistan is unacceptable for our nation and masses; Jihad is obligatory against them and our people will continue their legitimate resistance and Jihad against them.

Prior to the invasion, we had told the Americans that they will not benefit from this felony rather it will increase their miseries but they did not pay any heed and now they are not only stuck into the longest and humiliating war of their history but also internationally their foes are increased; their military, political and economic majesty and supremacy are demolished; rather their decline and deterioration started from the start of this futile war.

A few years ago when the reins of power was transferred from Republicans to Democrats, we once again called upon the fire kindling US authorities to recompense the blunder of the previous government and if they insist on war, their casualties and humiliation will inevitably escalate but Barak Obama did quite the opposite. Instead of withdrawing his forces, he sent tens of thousands more troops to Afghanistan. The scope of resistance and struggle against the American occupation soared correspondingly with the increase of invading forces. The amount of casualties among the occupying forces escalated and eventually the American authorities were compelled to decide to quit from the battlefield.

We once again call upon the American officials that they are repeating the felony of their predecessors here; they are only wasting their time here; they are augmenting the miseries of our as well as their nations and eventually it is the American people who will suffer most from this futile war. The American authorities should presently take that decision which will have to eventually be taken by them two years later so that on one side, the sufferings of our people are brought to an end and on the other side, their casualties are not protracted too.

For the apprehension of the American authorities, we would like to elucidate that as a Muslim nation, Jihad is obligatory on us according to our beliefs till the end of occupation of our pious land by the infidel forces. The presence of armed infidel forces inside a Muslim land has no legitimacy and justification. Therefore the obligation of Jihad is not deferred with the quantitative decrease of the occupying forces rather it (Jihad) is as compulsory even against a single foreign soldier as it is obligatory against thousands of them.

Therefore, if the Americans want to relieve themselves as well as the Afghan masses from this futile Afghan war, they should completely withdraw their forces from Afghanistan as soon as possible.
