Qaradawi teaches Muslims that they are required to support the Taliban’s fight against U.S. forces. He preaches “gradualism,” a jihadist doctrine based on phases and pragmatism. The Taliban can count on him to lure the U.S. into a favorable deal that permits them to continue towards the goal of Sharia-based governance. Furthermore, the U.S. plans to release the five Taliban leaders into the hands of Qatar. Though the country houses a U.S. base and is referred to as an “ally,” it is far from a true partner in fighting terrorism. When the U.S. asked Qatar to become involved in Libya, it used its influence to help the Islamists.

The Taliban’s willingness to negotiate probably just reflects a shift in strategy, perhaps noticing how much more successful the Muslim Brotherhood has been than Al-Qaeda. Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid says, “During the past Taliban regime the government would make some hasty decisions, but now we are careful and deliberate.” Don’t mistake this for a change in ideology. In justifying the killing of foreign aid workers, Taliban commander Mohammed Ibrahim Hanafi said, “Our law is still the same old law which was in place during our rule in Afghanistan.”

While the U.S. engages the Taliban and President Karzai engages Iran and encourages anti-Americanism, the Afghan political opposition feels left out. Many of the opposition leaders belonged to the Northern Alliance that fought side-by-side with U.S. forces to oust the Taliban. They have issued a joint statement with Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) complaining about not being included in the talks. They worry about a “back room deal among power brokers so they [the Taliban] would hold some kind of authority and power in an upcoming Afghan government.”

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) says that these ignored opposition leaders represent over 60% of the Afghan population.

“The Obama regime is choosing to now make concessions to the group that helped train for the 9/11 attacks and whose leader proclaimed on Afghan TV recently that the U.S. has been defeated and is now begging them for negotiations,” Rep. Gohmert said.

Supporters of the talks are quick to compare them to how the U.S. engaged the Sunni tribes of Iraq to turn them into partners against the insurgency, but the comparison is incorrect. The Iraqi tribal leaders were not motivated by a desire to establish Sharia-based governance, were backing the “stronger horse” and turned their guns on Al-Qaeda and the insurgents. These talks are not about crushing the Taliban. They’re about reaching a settlement with the Taliban. The same Taliban that, unlike the Iraqi tribes, uses truces to establish Sharia enclaves and sanitize the country of modernity, like burning cell phones, computers and televisions, as the Taliban just did in South Waziristan.

The Taliban are theologically committed to jihad and Sharia-based governance and it will not change until it abandons that belief system. The so-called “moderate Taliban” is only less extreme in its tactics. If the Obama Administration thinks that releasing five of the worst Taliban operatives is going to make the extremist group reconsider its jihad, then it is profoundly naïve.

    Releasing Terrorists for Peace

    Putting aside the fact that non-Muslim unbelievers should never ever negotiate with Muslims unless they want to be duped and betrayed, it appears that Mr. Mauro is continuing his campaign of reenforcing the false ideology of PC multiculturalism on his readers.

    The reality is there are no terrorists in the Islamic world, as terrorism isn't an Islamic manifestation and in fact is considered to be blasphemy, which is a capital offense in Islam. Muslims instead fight jihad and jihad is holy fighting in the cause of Allah against non-Muslim unbelievers to make Islam supreme and in stark contrast to terrorism can be both violent, as in the 9/11 violent jihad attacks, and non-violent, as in mass Muslim immigration to the West for the purpose of stealth demographic conquest to make Islam supreme.

    While terrorism and violent jihad appear for all intents and purposes to be virtually identical, the way to distinguish between the two different and distinct manifestations is if it is perpetrated by Muslims in the cause of Allah to make Islam supreme, then it is violent jihad, and if it is perpetrated by non-Muslims for causes other than making Islam supreme, then it is terrorism. I know it may seem to be nitpicking, but it is nevertheless very important that the West distinguish between the two very different and distinct manifestations.

    In addition, non-violent jihad relative to violent jihad constitutes an exponentially far greater threat to the continued peace, prosperity, freedom, and security of the West relative to violent jihad because it is employed by the Islamic world astronomically far more prevalently against the West.

    In fact, unless something drastic occurs, it is impossible for the Islamic world to ever conquer the West via violent jihad because the West relative to the Islamic world is far too rich, powerful, and advanced for that to ever happen. However, via non-violent jihad, such as mass Muslim immigration to the West for the purpose of stealth demographic conquest to make Islam supreme, the Islamic world can conquer the West.

    As a matter of fact, it is already happening throughout the world including in Europe and America today. As Muslims never ever migrate to the West or anywhere else for that matter to assimilate and integrate, but instead to eventually subjugate and dominate via the eventual imposition of Sharia for the purpose of stealth demographic conquest to make Islam supreme.

    Indeed, in country after country and anywhere and everywhere mass Muslim immigration is occurring throughout the world today, just like clockwork the vast overwhelming majority of Muslim immigrants flat out refuse to assimilate and integrate and instead form segregated Muslim only enclaves that over time eventually morph into Muslim no-go zones ruled by Sharia as fifth columns and in direct contravention to the laws of the states in which they reside.

    As a matter of fact, the government of France just a few years ago counted 758 Muslim no-go zones in France alone. Indeed, Europe today is populated with over a thousand Muslim no-go zones already, and each one of them acts like tiny sovereign Islamic statelets inside the states in which they reside.

    In fact, according to the texts and tenets of Islam, Muslims are forbidden from living outside the Dar al Islam (the domain of submission) unless it is in the cause Allah to make Islam supreme, i.e., non-violent stealth jihad. Hence, that is the sole purpose Muslims migrate to the West, not to assimilate and integrate, but instead for the purpose of stealth demographic conquest to make Islam supreme. As mass Muslim immigration to the West is actually non-violent jihad, which again constitutes an exponentially far greater threat to the West relative to violent jihad. Yet, thanks to the false ideology of PC multiculturalism, in which Mr. Mauro reenforces in the minds of his readers everyday, non-violent jihad manifest throughout the West today completely unopposed and without any resistance whatsoever.

    In any event, we need to get out of Afghanistan ASAP and transition to a new strategy of containing the spread, growth, and expansion of Islam. As our current fantasy-based nation-building mission in Afghanistan is analogous to rebuilding Hitler's Third Reich and lifting up the Nazis after WWII, because Muslims according to the dictates of Islam are our eternal and perpetual enemies.

      "As a matter of fact, it is already happening throughout the world including in Europe and America today."

      It has happened. Europe has become "Eurabia". When they made it a crime to speak against Islam in that region of the world, was the decisive point. Europe has fallen to this ideology. The only way to get their freedom back is to drive out the key leaders that fund and motivate this occupation of the Europe.

    • DrBukk

      We have no-go zones (at night) in most urban areas of the South, but they're not Muslims.

      Neville Chamberlain, you've a soul-mate in Obama. Our president will render all the military sacrifices for naught and wear the slaughter of thousands of our sympathizers in Iraq and Afghanistan on his shoulders.

      • ObamaYoMoma

        Our president will render all the military sacrifices for naught and wear the slaughter of thousands of our sympathizers in Iraq and Afghanistan on his shoulders.

        They were already for naught the instant we occupied Afghanistan and Iraq for the purpose of pursuing two incredibly fantasy based and exceedingly counterproductive nation-building missions built on false PC multicultural myths and misconceptions about Islam.

        As for as wearing the slaughter of thousands of our sympathizer goes, what are you smoking? There are no such thing as Muslim sympathizers that aren't the eternal and perpetual enemy of the USA and all other non-Muslim unbelievers in the world.

        Indeed, the fantasy based nation-building missions in Iraq and Afghanistan were not only the two biggest strategic blunders ever in American history thanks to GWB, but they were also analogous to rebuilding Hitler's Third Reich and lifting up the Nazis after WWII.

        Of course, GWB was incredibly blinded by PC multiculturalism and as a result completely incompetent, but BHO is even more blinded by PC multiculturalism and as a result even more incompetent.

        Indeed, today the Republican Party and the Dhimmicrat Party for all intents and purposes are really two sides of the same totally incompetent leftwing coin. Indeed, we are on the fast track to becoming the next Greece thanks to needless massive government expansion in response to 9/11.

    Treason!

    I think it would work, and I'd be all for it, if they released the terrorists at about 30,000 ft.

    • sedoanman

      There was a story out of Vietnam about taking Vietcong hostages up high in a helicopter, blindfold him, then descend to just a few feet and push him out, to get them to talk. Don't know if that counts as torture.

    "The Obama administration is redefining the War on Terrorism as a war on Al-Qaeda, with Vice President Biden going so far as to say that the “Taliban, per se, is not our enemy."

    A TOTAL FARCE!

    That would have been the same as if FDR said in his Dec.8,1941 speech that a "State of War Exists" between the United States and Japanese Aircraft Carriers and/or Adm. Yamamoto

  • WilliamJamesWard

    Is Obama negotiating with the Taliban or is he conspiring with them while performing
    his personal jihad? I can imagine how funny this is to the leaders of Islam while
    they wage war against America and we pay for their chief stooge. I wonder how
    long it will be before the Mullah in Chief comes out of his closet attired in
    a turban and robes………………………………………………………William

  • husam

    Trying to show the Taliban vicious merciless fanatics?? look at the way they treat the soldiers they capture, now compare that to the scandalous behaviour of your troops, from Abugharib and Haditha in iraq, to the more recent atrocities in afghanistan ( you must have whatched the video on youtube showing american soldiers urinating on dead afghani insurgents).

    • WilliamJamesWard

      They were hiding in the latrine, what could they expect……………….William

  • Husam

    Anyway, you will never win the war in afghanistan, so the sooner you realise that the better, and it seems the ''long legged mad daddy'' is doing the right thing. ALLAHO AKBAR.

    • Alvaro

      The USA could easily win the war in Afghanistan. They have the military capability of flattening Kabul and wiping out the entire population if they want to. If the Taliban had the same possibility, would they not use it? That alone shows you who the civilized part is.

      Have a happy journey back to the year 700, you and the other bearded Ignoramuses.
