The Bloodiest Field for Slaughtering
www.zmag/org, December 12, 2006
Five years ago, America and their allies
attacked Afghanistan in the name of bringing "Human Rights",
"Democracy", and "Freedom" to our war-torn
country. The Taliban regime fell and Hamid Karzai's puppet regime,
which included the well-known Northern Alliance criminals or as
UN envoy Mahmoud Mestri said, "the bandit gangs", took
over in the name of a fake democracy. However, today, the deceitful
policies of Mr. Karzai and his Western guardians have brought
Afghanistan to a very critical situation where disaster is a ticking
time bomb that can explode any minute. Treason and mockery have
efficiently been used in the name of "democracy" and
"freedom" in the past five years. The human rights situation
in Afghanistan is a product of the painful deception of the warlord
Northern Alliance criminals, backed by
the US have their own local and barbaric governments. Just the
increasing number of women who commit suicide by burning themselves
is the best example of a human rights violation in Afghanistan.
According to UNICEF, 65% of 50000 widows in Kabul think that committing
suicide is the only option they have. Northern Alliance crooks
raped an 11 year old girl, Sanuber, and traded her for a dog.
In Badakhshan, a young woman was gang-raped by 13 Jehadis in front
of her children, and one of the rapists urinated in the mouth
of her children who were continuously crying. In Paghman, a suburb
of Kabul, a criminal leader Rasol Sayyaf, who was the mentor and
godfather of Khalid Sheikh Mohammad, the mastermind of the 9/11
attacks, plunders our peoples' territory and tortures his opposition
in his private prison. Despite many protest rallies by the unfortunate
people of Paghman in front of the Parliament House, no one hears
their painful voice. Instead the so-called police forces headed
by infamous criminal warlords like Zahir Aghbar and Amanullah
Guzar, attacked the protesters and killed 2 of them. These are
all just some examples of thousands of crimes that are being carried
out by the fundamentalists of the Northern Alliance. These evil
men have high positions in the executive, legislative, and judiciary
branches of the US-imposed government with some unprincipled intellectuals
dancing to their tune.
The establishment of state-run institutions
such as the Independent Human Rights Commission and the Ministry
of Women's Affairs are just for show - to throw dust into the
eyes of our people and the world community and to conceal the
human rights catastrophe. Although these symbolic institutions
spend a lot of money, they have never addressed the core issues
regarding human rights in Afghanistan, which are the atrocities
carried out by the Northern Alliance criminals. For instance,
a woman named Zofanoon Natiq, the head of Women's Affairs Ministry
branch in Badakhshan Province, in an interview with Pajhwak News
Agency, entirely denied the gang-rape saying that "no such
incident had been occurred in Badakhshan." Meanwhile the
Police chief in the same province contradicted her and said a
warlord from the fundamentalist Jamiat-e-Islami party, named Mujtaba
committed the crime. Another woman, Fahima Kakar, the head of
Women's Ministry branch in Kunduz, didn't want to displeasure
warlords. She simply said, "I think it is not proper to behead
a lady, in my view and in Islam it is not good to kill someone"
regarding the crime in which a woman was beheaded and killed while
her hands were tied behind her back. All the women in official
posts are selected from such "showpiece women" who compromise
with the fundamentalists and keep silent in the face of their
The disgraceful defeat and embarrassing
situation in the War in Iraq has left no option for the US, except
to illustrate Afghanistan as a success, regardless of whether
it results in pain and suffering for the Afghan people. The disagreement
among NATO members and some member sates against the will of the
US has made the situation harder for the White House. Therefore,
America tries to keep a fragile temporary stability in Afghanistan
in order to promote a sense of accomplishment by producing a "democratic"
Afghanistan all around the world - a "B52 democracy"
at the expense of treason against the majority of the Afghan people.
There are now treacherous games to try to finalize the power of
Gulbuddin's Islamic Party and the Taliban through the plans for
Tribal Jirgas. Tribal Jirgas are no less deceptive than the Loya
Jirgas and Afghan Parliament to our bereaved people. First the
US divided the Taliban criminals into "moderate" and
"non-moderate" factions. In the first stage Taliban
criminal leaders such as Mullah Rocketi, Arsela Rahmani, Mullah
Khaksar, Wakil Ahmad Motawakil, and Qalamaddin etc. were stamped
as "moderate Taliban" and allowed to make their ways
into the Parliament. Now, two criminal gang leaders, Gulbuddin
and Mullah Omer, have been invited to join the government. In
this case, it only remains for Al- Qaida to be invited to join
the rotten Afghan Government.
Although the Gulbuddin Party and Taliban
have many representatives in government branches and the Parliament,
the compromise with these criminal and blood stained leaders illustrates
that America never wants peace and stability in Afghanistan. The
US government sacrificed our people for its political and economical
interests by establishing a government full of traitors, criminals
and drug-lords. It does not matter who rules in Kabul, the US
wants just a puppet regime. An American military presence in Afghanistan
has no benefit for our people. In addition, thousands of civilians
lost their lives because of radioactive and cluster bombs, and
"friendly fire". This fact is obviously a disgrace for
those who strongly defend the American military presence in Afghanistan.
Since the Northern Alliance criminals
were installed into power, RAWA has been saying that it is impossible
to bring peace, human rights, and stability with a gang of criminals
in power. Today even the western media points out the Jehadi warlords
as a main problem in destabilizing Afghanistan which proves RAWA's
analysis. However, the fundamentalist Karzai government, in order
to cover up its own irresponsibility, corruption, and weaknesses,
names Pakistan's interference and support of the Taliban as the
single main issue in Afghanistan and pretends that if this interference
is stopped Afghanistan will become a heaven on the earth! Karzai's
government raised a hue and cry about the Pakistani statement
on the need for a "coalition government" but everyone
knows that a coalition government with criminals such as Taliban,
Jehadis, Gullbudin and others is already in place.
Murderers such as Sayyaf, Rabbani, Qanooni,
Fahim, Mujadadi, Massoud, Dostom, Mahaqiq, Khalili, Ismail, and
others who were Pakistan and Iran's loyal agents and servants
are trying to deceive our people by acting as if they are anti-Pakistan.
However, they can never dissolve the shameful marks of being agents
of Pakistan and others. Moreover, Pakistan and Iran also should
first of all apologize to our oppressed people for their treacherous
role in empowering and supporting brutal Afghan fundamentalist
bands. Although it is obvious that the Taliban are supported by
some Pakistani sources, just as Iran supports its own spies like
Khalili, Mohaqiq, Kazimi, Bahwi, Ismael Khan and others, the core
issue in Afghanistan is not Pakistani interference inside Afghanistan.
The biggest factor in destabilizing Afghanistan is inside Afghanistan.
As long as the main issue inside has not been solved, the external
issues matter little.
The biggest factor that strengthens the
Taliban is the hatred and disgust that our people have against
the Jehadi mafia in the system. When people have no security,
when they see lawlessness and the embezzlement by criminals of
millions of dollars from international aid agencies, they are
indifferent about the rise of the Taliban. Haji Nek Mohammad who
had lost his beloved family in a NATO's air strike in Kandahar
said, "I prefer to join the Taliban forces because the Taliban
have so far killed only 2 people in my village while the collation
forces killed 63 people in a single day." Our people know
that there is no difference between the Taliban and Jehadi warlords.
They both are fundamentalist medieval forces that were created
by foreigners and they will join forces against our people at
any moment. The NA hooligan leader Rabbani confirmed this fact
when, in a recent interview said that he will not fight against
Amusingly, there are some right-wing and
leftist groups outside Afghanistan who look to the Taliban as
an "anti-imperialist" force and defend them. They satirize
themselves by such funny remarks and prove that they are completely
ignorant of the barbaric nature of the Taliban. If they ever experienced
a day of humiliation under the Taliban rule, they would never
make such hurtful jokes against our people.
The Revolutionary Association of the Women
of Afghanistan (RAWA) strongly supports the anti-war movement
which grows day by day all around the world and becomes a strong
force against the US and her Allies' war-mongering policies.
Despite being on the top of the fundamentalists'
black list, we would like to assure our people that RAWA, as before,
will never give up its struggle against Jehadi, Talibi, Khalqi,
and Parchami murderers and will carry on its uncompromising fight
with full determination to break the mask of the fundamentalists'
We would like to declare to all freedom-loving,
anti-invaders, and anti-fundamentalist individuals and groups
that as long as we don't form a united movement against the fundamentalists
and their foreign masters, we will not be in a position to break
the chain of oppression and tyranny. We announced on the first
day of the US invasion that there is not one example in history
where a foreign force brings freedom to another nation. Only the
people of Afghanistan themselves can gain these values.
Fourteen years have passed since the gloomy
day of April 28th, 1992. But our nation is being caught tighter
day by day around the ankles of those who caused the pain, mourning
and destruction in our land. Traitors, country-betrayers, and
dark minds are in control of our nation's fate and our country
has sunk into a calamity. Mr. Karzai and his foreign guardians,
who have invested in fundamentalists for many years, today have
given key posts in the executive, legislative and judiciary branches
of government, to the most infamous and bloody elements of the
Northern Alliance and other savage bands. With the passage of
time, the ring of these traitors is increasing. The evil men who
caused the April 1992 tragedy, instead of being sued, have so
much authority in the country that through the parliament they
shamelessly announce this infelicitous day as a public holiday.
In this manner they ridicule the people, the majority of whom,
according to a survey of national and international human rights
defending organizations, want the prosecution and punishment of
these national traitors.
Without the end of the fundamentalists'
rule, the observance of human rights is just a dream!
Hold the struggle flag of freedom, democracy,
and social justice!
With people against fundamentalism; or
with fundamentalists against people; there is no third option!
