In yet another example of terrorists lacking loyalty to other terrorists, the Sunni Deobandi movement of Afghanistan (Aka "the Taliban") had turned towards Shi'ite Iran, dumping Bin-laden (Al-Queda) into the dustbin. This came days after Deobandis had denounced terrorism (but not Jihad) in the Indian city of Deoband.
I was wondering, is Ahmedinejad going to represent next the Generation of "Al - Afghani (who was an official 'freedom fighter' from the Indian war of independence, or 1857 sepoy mutiny)", whose influence had given a new face to Islamic Jihad by influencing figures such as "Al-Hajj Mohammed Amin al Husseini" or "Hassan al Banna" during the days of the Armenian Holocaust. The Jerusalem Post has a small article about how dogs are eating dogs (so to speak)...
Al-Qaida supporters on the Web have unleashed an unprecedented flood of criticism of Afghanistan's Taliban, once seen by extremists as the model of an Islamic state.
Now extremists accuse the Taliban of straying from the path of global jihad after its leader Mullah Omar issued a statement saying he seeks good relations with the world and even sympathizes with Shi'ite Iran.
In February, the Taliban announced it wanted to maintain good and "legitimate" relations with neighboring countries. Then, last week online militants were outraged when the movement expressed solidarity with Iran, condemning the latest round of sanctions imposed on Teheran by the UN Security Council over its nuclear enrichment.
The Shi'ite Islamic state of Iran is viewed as anathema by the Sunni militants of the al-Qaida and other extremist movements.
"This is the worst statement I have ever read ... the disaster of defending the (Iranian) regime is on par with the Crusaders in Afghanistan and Iraq," wrote poster Miskeen, whose name translates literally as "the wretched" and who is labeled as one of the more influential writers on an al-Qaida linked Web site.
It seems, Deobandis sense good the increasing frustration in global democratic citizens, and is once again trying to play "safe Jihad" between by pseudo-splitting Religious fanaticism and Political fanaticism.
Are they marking a new revival of the 1926 for survival of Jihad? In 1926, meetings between prominent Islamists had given a new shape to Jihad by giving birth to two dedicated movements for Western and Eastern spheres of Jihad, i.e., the Muslim Brotherhood ("Ikwan"), and Tablighi Jammat respectively. Both organizations had (and have) goals of purifying Islam from non-Islamic activities in an 'apolitical' way (but still involving themselves with many political activities); Deobandis have merely insulated themselves with a 'more accepted' form of political Fanaticism.
Dogs does eat Dogs, and Political Islam does means this in all senses!! That said, it would be great if Al-Queda can release an official statement about "Al-Queda Phobia" in Talibanis, or will they will castigate the Taliban as Islamophobic and zionist agents :)
