Afghan Resistance Statement Why are the Americans closing down Jihadi media? Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan

In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate

The American newspaper, the Wall Street Journal, quoting sources in the Pentagon, wrote the day before yesterday that those Internet sites and radio stations that according to them belong to or are attributed to the Taliban or are supporting them would be closed down.

The Pentagon has reasoned that these Internet sites and media sources not only have no legal licences but also make a large number of people side with the Taliban and incite them against America and its allies, and in doing so further weaken the Kabul administration.

First of all it should be made clear that the Americans for the past four to five years have made widespread and continuous efforts to silence and foil these websites and stations that they now wish to close down. This is not a new step or a fresh effort when they say they will disrupt the Taliban media sources or broadcasts.

In the past they have spared no efforts, Americans should feel really ashamed that despite their huge material strength and superiority they are afraid of a few local Internet sites and FM radio stations, which cannot operate outside a 20 km radius, that the Pentagon intervenes and regards these limited and few sources as a great threat.

This is despite the fact that the Americans alone in Afghanistan or outside it have started hundreds of radio and television stations and thousands of newspapers, publications and magazine to spread poisonous, false and hateful propaganda against the Taliban and to hide huge casualties and losses inflicted on them every day by the Taliban so that no publication, news agency or website could give the exact number of American losses of life and material on a daily basis in various parts of Afghanistan.

Those world organizations and institutions, which claim to uphold the freedom of expression, idea and pen, should condemn or foil this inadmissible American effort or at least seriously denounce it if they are really committed to these claims and slogans.

The author knows very well why the sites are going down, in my opinion.

A look at the Taliban:

The barbaric 7th century assholes should be DENIED every aspect of modern civilization that was created by the “infidels”...

The Koran ORDERS them to NOT support the “infidel system”.....

If they wish to die as martyrs - let them live correctly under the Koran and fight with swords, rocks and hurling their feces...... THOSE are the products of the Islamic world.

1. You refine heroin for a living, but you have a moral objection to beer.

2. You own a $3,000 machine gun and $5,000 rocket launcher, but you can’t afford shoes.

3. You have more wives than teeth.

4. You wipe your butt with your bare hand, but consider bacon unclean.

5. You think vests come in two styles: bullet-proof and suicide.

6. You can’t think of anyone you haven’t declared Jihad against.

7. You consider television dangerous, but routinely carry explosives in your clothing.

8. You were amazed to discover that cell phones have uses other than setting off roadside bombs.

9. You have nothing against women and think every man should own at least one.

10. You’ve always had a crush on your neighbor’s goat.

The jihadi websites are their "command and control". Shut them down and you impair their ability to plan and coordinate attacks. It's easier to nail a server than drop a bomb. Cyber warfare.
