So are you calling the NYT and other credible sources liars too? popcorn

Are your feelings hurt because you don’t want to admit white supremacists support the Taliban? They’re no different from the January 6th insurrectionists. They should get kicked out the country if they support the Taliban, because they are already a threat to this country. What’s the matter? You don’t like people outing your friends?

If the ‘truth’ about that news didn’t make you uncomfortable, then you wouldn’t have responded.

The Right-Wingers Who Admire the Taliban
Aug. 27, 2021

By Michelle Goldberg
Opinion Columnist


“As the Taliban swept through Afghanistan in August, a Gen Z alt-right group ran a Twitter account devoted to celebrating their progress. Tweets in Pashto juxtaposed two laughing Taliban fighters with pictures meant to represent American effeminacy. Another said, the words auto-translated into English, “Liberalism did not fail in Afghanistan because it was Afghanistan, it failed because it was not true. It failed America, Europe and the world see it.”

The account, now suspended, was just one example of the open admiration for the Taliban that’s developed within parts of the American right. The influential young white supremacist Nick Fuentes — an ally of the Arizona Republican congressman Paul Gosar and the anti-immigrant pundit Michelle Malkin — wrote on the encrypted app Telegram: “The Taliban is a conservative, religious force, the U.S. is godless and liberal. The defeat of the U.S. government in Afghanistan is unequivocally a positive development.” An account linked to the Proud Boys expressed respect for the way the Taliban “took back their national religion as law, and executed dissenters.”

“The far right, the alt-right, are all sort of galvanized by the Taliban essentially running roughshod through Afghanistan, and us leaving underneath a Democratic president,” said Moustafa Ayad, executive director for Africa, the Middle East and Asia at the Institute for Strategic Dialogue, a think tank devoted to countering violent extremism. They’re looking at Afghanistan, he said, “from a standpoint of us getting ‘owned,’ in the parlance of the internet.”

Western far-right groups claim Taliban victory as their own
“Western extremists heralded the Islamic militants’ military success as part of their own fight against liberal values.”


BY MARK SCOTT
August 18, 2021 7:09 pm

“The Taliban have some unlikely cheerleaders: the far right in Europe and the United States.

White supremacists, QAnon followers and others in extremist online communities praised the group for their overthrowing of liberal values in the days following their victory across Afghanistan, according to a review of encrypted Telegram channels, online message boards and posts within more mainstream social networks like Twitter by Digital Bridge, POLITICO’s transatlantic newsletter.”

Last known member of Afghanistan's Jewish community leaves country, taking dozens of women and children with him

By Jaide Timm-Garcia and Helen Regan, CNN 21 hrs ago

The last known member of Afghanistan's Jewish community left the country on Friday, taking 30 other people with him -- including 28 women and children -- on a five day mission to safety, according to the group who carried out the evacuation.

a man standing in a room: Zebulon Simentov, the last known Jewish person living in Afghanistan, closes the window to the synagogue he cares for in his Kabul home on August, 29, 2009.© David Goldman/AP Zebulon Simentov, the last known Jewish person living in Afghanistan, closes the window to the synagogue he cares for in his Kabul home on August, 29, 2009.

Zebulon Simentov lived in and maintained the only Synagogue in Kabul, surviving in part off donations from overseas. A well known figure in the Afghan capital, Simentov, who is in his early 60s, had lived through decades of conflict and political turmoil, including the Taliban's previous rule over the country from 1996 and 2001.

Simentov and 30 others traveled by van over Afghanistan's mountainous terrain and negotiated multiple Taliban checkpoints before entering "a neighboring country" on Monday, the Jewish New Year Rosh Hashana, said Moti Kahana, an Israel-American businessman and philanthropist who organized his escape.

Simentov has been credited with helping to save dozens of children by refusing to leave them behind in Afghanistan, said Kahana.

Historical evidence suggests Afghanistan was once home to a sizable Jewish community. It reached 40,000 in the mid-19th century and began declining around 1870 with the passage of anti-Jewish measures, according to the American-Israeli Cooperative Enterprise, a nonprofit group. Most of the remaining members of the country's Jewish community left following Israel's creation in 1948 and then in 1979 after the Soviet invasion, the group said.

Simentov's status as the last member of the community to live in Afghanistan has received widespread media attention in recent decades, with numerous reports detailing his persistent refusal to leave the country, even after his wife and children relocated to Israel.

Taliban, Cut Off From Accessing Afghanistan's Funds, Can't Pay Import Taxes for Food

Only a month after the Taliban seized Kabul, Afghanistan's impoverished people are hanging by a thread as the world tries to figure out how to deliver aid without indirectly supporting the militant group, the Associated Press reported.

As Taliban robs Afghan wo...- CBS News

As Taliban robs Afghan women and girls of work, school and safety, the most vulnerable "have nowhere to go"

In a November 2001 weekly radio address to the American people, first lady Laura Bush said American troops had invaded Afghanistan to fight terrorism and rescue Afghan women from the Taliban's oppression and brutality. She called it "a fight for the rights and dignity of women."

The toppling of the Taliban regime and the ensuing 20 years of war did deliver significant gains for women's rights. But it has taken the Islamic extremists just over a month to erase those hard-won achievements.

The new Taliban regime, which looks remarkably like the one that ruled over the country until it was toppled by the U.S.-led invasion, has closed the government ministry dedicated to women's affairs. It's preventing female students from returning to schools and universities. Female workers in an array of professions have been told to stay home until further notice. Videos show Taliban enforcers flogging women on the streets, in broad daylight, for unknown transgressions.

The Taliban may be hunting for Afghanistan's most famous treasure

Owen Jarus 5 hrs ago

With the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan, the country's archaeological remains face a grim future even if the extremist Islamic group decides not to loot or intentionally destroy them.

his gold crown was found in a tomb at the site of Tillya Tepe, dating to the first century in Afghanistan. The crown is just one of the many artifacts that are part of the Bactrian Treasure.© Provided by Live Science his gold crown was found in a tomb at the site of Tillya Tepe, dating to the first century in Afghanistan. The crown is just one of the many artifacts that are part of the Bactrian Treasure.

Some news reports suggest the Taliban are already hunting for one of the country's most famous caches; the so-called "Bactrian Treasure" is a collection of more than 20,000 artifacts, many made of gold, that were found in 2,000-year-old graves at a site called Tillya Tepe in 1978. The treasure was kept in the National Museum of Afghanistan and was on display at the presidential palace, but reports indicate that its present location is unknown.

Other archaeological remains that could be threatened by the Taliban include Mes Aynak, a Buddhist city that flourished around 1,600 years ago. The city was located along the iconic Silk Road and was used for both trade and worship; numerous ancient Buddhist monasteries and other ancient Buddhist artifacts are buried there. . .
