16 killed in 2 separate attacks in Afghanistan

KABUL -- Afghan officials said yesterday that two separate explosions in the country's north killed at least 16 people, almost all of them women and young girls. In the north-eastern Kunduz province, a roadside bomb struck a civilian vehicle going to a wedding on Wednesday evening, killing at least 15 people - six women, six girls and two infants, as well as the male driver. Hours later, a gunfight and explosion at a security checkpoint killed at least one policeman. The interior ministry blamed the Taleban for the two attacks.

That's more the kind of thing that the occupying racists and sadists carry out.

Afghan officials see a factors that led to the Islamic State’s losses in the east, forcing many of the fighters to either move or surrender. Official estimated that the group’s strength was now reduced to around 300 fighters in Afghanistan, from an estimated 3,000 earlier this year.

ISIS Is Losing Afghan Territory. That Means Little for Its Victims.

Offensives against the Islamic State’s Afghan branch have brought it down to several hundred fighters, officials say. But they warn that the group’s cruelty is still a threat.

Dec. 2, 2019 Updated 6:39 a.m. ET

KABUL, Afghanistan — The Islamic State’s main stronghold in eastern Afghanistan collapsed in recent weeks, according to American and Afghan officials, following years of concerted military offensives from American and Afghan forces and, more recently, the Taliban.

President Ashraf Ghani recently claimed that the Islamic State, often known as ISIS, had been “obliterated” in Nangarhar Province, the group’s haven in the east. And in an interview in Kabul on Sunday, Gen. Austin S. Miller, the commander of all American and NATO forces in Afghanistan, said the group’s loss of the terrain it stubbornly held for few years would severely restrict their recruitment and planning.

Why would we believe a collaborating US puppet that has been smashing up Afghanistan for 18 years - indeed, 40 years?

And this after WW1 lasted 4 years and WW2 lasted 6 years?

What was the longest war in the 20th century and who was behind it?

INTERESTING BOOK TO GET INFORMED

In what is sure to be her most controversial book to date, Ayaan Hirsi Ali makes a powerful case that a religious Reformation is the only way to end the terrorism, sectarian warfare, and repression of women and minorities that each year claim thousands of lives throughout the Muslim world.

https://www.amazon.com › Heretic-Why-Islam-Needs-Reformation In what is sure to be her most controversial book to date, Ayaan Hirsi Ali makes a powerful case that a religious Reformation is the only way to end the terrorism, sectarian warfare, and repression of women and minorities that each year claim thousands of lives throughout the Muslim world.

This is a woman who was embraced by the Dutch in the Netherlands - until it was noticed what poison she was spreading eg "Violence is inherent in Islam - it's a destructive, nihilistic cult of death. It legitimates murder".

Tell me - how would we treat a Jew who so savagely attacked Judaism? Hand them plum jobs in academia and politics and laud the books they'd written full of anti-semitic filth?

The fact that she'd lied about "fleeing" and claiming asylum didn't help - especially when it was discovered she'd even lied about her name and her date of birth and her origins!

In May 2006 the TV programme Zembla reported that Hirsi Ali had given false information about her name, her age, and her country of residence when originally applying for asylum.[51] In her asylum application, she had claimed to be fleeing a forced marriage, but the Zembla coverage featured interviews with her family, who denied that claim.[52] The program alleged that, contrary to Hirsi Ali's claims of having fled a Somali war zone, the MP had been living comfortably in upper middle-class conditions safely in Kenya with her family for at least 12 years before she sought refugee status in the Netherlands in 1992.

In her version of events, she had fled civil war in Somalia, was forced into an arranged marriage with a man whom she had never met, and was not present at her own wedding. Upon escaping she was forced into hiding in the Netherlands, for her ex-husband and father's brothers would have been by Somali custom, required to perform an honor killing.

The accounts of various witnesses varied greatly from hers. According to them, she left Somalia prior to any mass violence, and led a comfortable, upper-middle class life in neighboring Kenya, where she attended a Muslim Girls' school and received a full western-style education with focus on the Humanities and Science, her brother attended a Christian school, she lied to the Dutch immigration service about coming from Somalia in order not to be sent back to Kenya, and they allege she met her husband a few days before her wedding.

After several meetings with him, they allege she agreed to the marriage, even though her mother said Ayaan should finish her education so she could afford to leave him if the marriage should have been unsuccessful. They also allege that Hirsi Ali was present at the wedding, something her brother later denied, and according to several witnesses appeared to be enjoying herself.

Hirsi Ali denies all of this. On her way to Canada, she says she travelled to Holland by train during a stopover in Germany, and applied for political asylum. During her stay in Holland she regularly received letters from her father.[53] The documentary also quoted several native Somalians as saying there is no tradition of honor killing in Somalia, something that is disputed.[54] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ayaan_Hirsi_Ali#Dutch_citizenship_Controversy

Do you actually think I have nothing to do in my life to convince otherwise?

Titta på hjärntvättet

År 2050 kan mer än 30 procent av Sveriges befolkning vara muslimer om invandringen är hög – medan andelen blir 11 procent vid ”noll” invandring. Detta enligt en ny studie från det kända amerikanska forskningscentret Pew. Uppgifterna kan bli politiskt sprängstoff i den infekterade invandringsdebatten – och flera svenska forskare säger att studien inte tar hänsyn till att muslimer föder färre barn när de flyttar till Europa.

– Det är troligt att migranterna anpassar sig till svenska förhållanden när det gäller födelsetal, säger Ann-Zofie Duvander, professor i demografi.
