أُذِنَ لِلَّذِينَ يُقَاتَلُونَ بِأَنَّهُمْ ظُلِمُوا وَإِنَّ اللَّهَ عَلَى نَصْرِهِمْ لَقَدِيرٌ ( 39(الَّذِينَ أُخْرِجُوا مِن دِيَارِهِم بِغَيْرِ حَقٍّ إِلَّا أَن يَقُولُوا رَبُّنَا اللَّهُ ۗ وَلَوْلَا دَفْعُ اللَّهِ النَّاسَ بَعْضَهُم بِبَعْضٍ لَّهُدِّمَتْ صَوَامِعُ وَبِيَعٌ وَصَلَوَاتٌ وَمَسَاجِدُ يُذْكَرُ فِيهَا اسْمُ اللَّهِ كَثِيرًا ۗ وَلَيَنصُرَنَّ اللَّهُ مَن يَنصُرُهُ ۗ إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَقَوِيٌّ عَزِيزٌ (40)
Fourteen years ago today the American invaders launched their invasion of our sacred homeland in violation of all humanitarian and accepted international laws.
The savage Americans justified their brutal invasion of Afghanistan as revenge for the 9/11 attacks despite the fact that this justification was totally irrational because the Afghans were neither involved nor aware of the 9/11 incident. However Bush and his coalition backers invaded Afghanistan without any proof and in violation of all international laws.
The goals for which this invasion was carried out have not only not been achieved but everything has turned out vice versa.
The Americans set out the four following objectives to justify their brutal invasion:
Firstly to depose the legitimate government of Afghanistan, the Islamic Emirate
Secondly to abolish narcotics production/trade
Thirdly to bring about a government conforming with the wishes of the Afghans
Fourthly to bring security and put an end to the fighting
But we can clearly observe that conversely to American expectations, today the Mujahideen of Islamic Emirate are able to better confront the Americans and its coalition militarily than during their rule.
The narcotics trade which was virtually abolished during the rule of Islamic Emirate reached epic proportions with Afghanistan holding first place as producers during the American invasion.
The system of governance propped up by America in Afghanistan at a cost of hundreds of billions of dollars and thousands of American lives is the most corrupt and failed government as admitted by America herself.
Security has deteriorated to a level that tens of thousands of fully armed American and NATO forces do not feel a sense of safely even inside the American embassy and NATO headquarters in the heart of Kabul city. This while not even counting the Afghans whose lives, property and homeland is burning in the flames of insecurity lit by the foreigners.
On the occasion of the 14th anniversary of the American invasion of Afghanistan, on top of condemning and resolving to completely expelling the invaders, the Islamic Emirate calls on America and her international partners to learn a lesson from its fourteen year invasion and instead choose the path of intellect, do not try yourselves with the already tested Afghans and let the Afghans themselves choose their own fate and the destination of their country by withdrawing your forces completely.
This is the same sound pathway which was proposed to you by the Islamic Emirate fourteen years earlier and it once again reiterates it to you on the 14thanniversary of your invasion of Afghanistan.
