What’s That You Say? The Taliban Attacked Afghanistan’s Parliament?

The military invasions/occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan following the 9/11/01 attacks have cost America a lot of precious lives and limbs, in addition to the 3,000 lost during the World Trade Center/Pentagon devastation.  As the centuries old war of Islam versus the non-Muslim world war drags on, it becomes ever more apparent to anyone with even the most elementary understanding of Islam’s collective mindset that we’ve been misled by an American political class which has absolutely no understanding of that mindset – or its goals.  In America’s halls of power, willful blindness to Islam’s doctrine goes on.

Alas, the American press corps, focusing on racial issues, social justice causes, pop culture and anything else which will divert John and Jane Q. Citizen from the ongoing existential threat to our nation’s survival, leaves us high and dry to go elsewhere to find out what’s happening in the world jihad movement. Ergo, I present a report from the UK Guardian, which tells us that far from being vanquished in Afghanistan, the Taliban (remember them?) is once again managing to mount assaults on the very heart of the Islamic Republic’s government.  Remember, please, that Afghanistan’s constitution, which was underwritten and approved by the George W. Bush Administration, enshrines Shariah as the source of its law, and forbids the passage of any law which goes against Islam.   From The Guardian:

Two people, including a child, died when Taliban fighters attacked the Afghan parliament building in Kabul, injuring dozens of civilians and forcing lawmakers to evacuate amid gunfire and explosions.

The Taliban claimed responsibility only minutes after the attack on Monday, which unfolded after a suicide car bomber blew themselves up outside the parliament gates and six other attackers tried to storm the building.

When parliament guards pushed the attackers back, the insurgents retreated to an empty building under construction, from where they fired rocket-propelled grenades and machine guns at the parliament, said police spokesman Abdurrahman Rahimi.

Police said two civilians, a woman and a child, were killed in the attack, which left a thick plume of smoke hanging over the parliament complex and tore a huge crater in an adjoining street.

At the time of the attack, lawmakers were gathered to vote on the nomination of a new defence minister. Taliban spokesman, Zabiullah Mujahed, told the Guardian that the insurgents picked the time and location of the attack because of the presence of many high-level officials…

Fawzia Koofi, another lawmaker, said the security forces were slow to respond…

…Over the weekend, in the north of the country, Taliban forces took control of Chardara district in Kunduz province, which has borne the brunt of the Taliban’s annual fighting season.

Read all of it.

I don’t care who tells us that these Taliban terrorists do not represent the “real” Islam – the religion of peace.  That is a corollary to George W. Bush’s BIG LIE.  The Taliban, Boko Haram, Al Qaida, Fatah, Hamas, Muslim Brotherhood, all read the same Quran and hadith collections.  They are just regular Muslims who are answering Islam’s highest, noblest call to all Muslims, and following Muhammad’s explicit instructions to subjugate the entire Earth under Shariah.


About John L. Work

John Lloyd Work has taken the detective thriller genre and woven an occasional political thread throughout his books, morphing what was once considered an arena reserved for pure fiction into believable, terrifying, futuristic, true-to-life “faction”. He traveled the uniformed patrolman’s path, answering brutal domestic violence calls, high speed chases, homicides, suicides, armed robberies, breaking up bar fights, and the accompanying sporadic unpredictable moments of terror - which eventually come to all police officers, sometimes when least expected. He gradually absorbed the hard fact that the greatest danger a cop faces comes in the form of day-to-day encounters with emotionally disturbed, highly intoxicated people. Those experiences can wear a cop down, grinding on his own emotions and psyche. Prolonged exposure to the worst of people and people at their worst can soon make him believe that the world is a sewer. That police officer’s reality is a common thread throughout Work’s crime fiction books. Following his graduation from high school, Work studied music and became a professional performer, conductor and teacher. Life made a sudden, unexpected turn when, one afternoon in 1976, his cousin, who eventually became the Chief of the Ontario, California, Police Department, talked him into riding along during a patrol shift. The musician was hooked into becoming a police officer. After working for two years as a reserve officer in Southern California and in Boulder, Colorado, he joined the Longmont, Colorado Police Department. Work served there for seven years, investigating crimes as a patrolman, detective and patrol sergeant. In 1989 he joined the Adams County, Colorado Sheriff’s Office, where he soon learned that locking a criminal up inside a jail or prison does not put him out of business. As a sheriff’s detective he investigated hundreds of crimes, including eleven contract murder conspiracies which originated “inside the walls”. While serving on the Adams County North Metro Gang Task Force and as a member of the Colorado Security Threat Intelligence Network Group (STING), Work designed a seminar on how a criminal’s mind formulates his victim selection strategy. Over a period of six years he taught that class in sheriff’s academies and colleges throughout Colorado. He saw the world of crime both inside the walls and out on the streets. His final experiences in the criminal law field were with the Colorado State Public Defender’s Office, where for nearly two years he investigated felonies from the defense side of the Courtroom. Twenty-two years of observing human nature at its worst, combined with watching some profound changes in America’s culture and political institutions, provided plenty of material for his first three books. A self-published author, he just finished writing his tenth thriller.
