Afghans should heal rifts with each other to defend their country against occupation forces
Wednesday, 18 August 2010 14:38 administrator
Afghans have, throughout their history, lived in brotherhood and exhibited intense integrity, solidarity and unity as a single nation under the name Afghanistan. The people in Afghanistan, whether Pashtun, Tajik, Uzbek, Hazarah, Baluch or Nooistani, have always joined common causes in safeguarding their common interests, standing up for their rights and have jointly resisted every invading force to defend their country

against the enemy and played a central role in independence, development and rehabilitation of Afghanistan.


In view of the Russians’ withdrawal from Afghanistan, all the ethnic groups collectively lay down their lives for the freedom of our country and played a key role to present a united front in chasing the Russians away from Afghanistan.


The US invasion of Afghanistan threatened the unity and integrity of the Afghans as a single nation, sowing the seeds of disunity among the Afghan masses that ended up turning one Afghan against another.  Regrettably, the recent Fitnah (evil) created by the US, among a lot of misfortune, misery and evils, is the chaotic upheaval of (Kochi and Hazarah) between two ethnic groups..


Some of the country’s parts have been affected by this Fitnah ( Kochi and Hazarah) or US-created evil, if not stopped now, may rapidly spread across the country.

However, the differences between two ethnic groups are not so profound that can not be settled.


It is a commonly recognized fact that Afghanistan is under the clutches the Super Evil’s tyranny, the bottom line is, the Afghans should sow the seeds of integrity, solidarity and brotherhood to heal the rifts with each other in order to get the freedom of our beloved country which is destined to be free from the occupation of invading forces and get our home grown differences and disputes resolved in the light Islamic Sharia and Afghan tradition and values.

The 91st anniversary of the independence of Afghnistan
Wednesday, 18 August 2010 17:35 administrator
With 91st anniversary of the British invasion of Afghanistan approaching, the invading forces' any attempts to stage open and clandestine conspiracy, cause interference, invasion and wage cold war against the Afghan Muslim nation have been doomed to an inevitable failure over the past century in Afghanistan.

The Leadership Council of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, hereby, would like to offer its heart-felt

felicitation to the believing people of Afghanistan and the families of the martyrs and affected Afghans;

above all, the heroic Mujahideen who have been striving hard to drive out the US,UK and their allies from Afghanistan.

This is a not an ordinary day in the world’s history, it is the day when our forefthers showed exemplary heroism  to regain this scared land from the claws of the British invaders who had engulfed most of the Indian sub-continent for about two centuries.

In the early nineties, the Britons working out their clandestine strategies and using covert activities and interference, took the advantage of the Afghans’ self-differences and rifts and   invaded Afghanistan, but the brave believing Afghan Mujahideen, as usual, not influenced by the military might and advanced warfare of the time, without having any sources or means, under difficult and poor circumstances brought the totalitarian Britons to their knees and expelled the enemy getting the world rid of the Britons’ evils using the  power of their faith and their intrinsic bravery and determination.

Indeed, the invasion by the British was not the only thing, Afghanistan has suffered many attacks and invasions prior to the British invasion and afterward, and the Afghan nation has never tolerated the occupation of their country before and will never tolerate it in the future at all.

The experience should teach the world major political players and the invaders that the Afghans’ tested spirit of high morale and determination are recognized facts.

Ironically, some of the deceived countries under US-led invasion have been bent on imposing something on the Afghans that are not only intolerable but can also never be imposed.

In the end, we remind the present aggressors, the US and its allies to follow in the

footsteps of their predecessors (Britons) and withdraw as soon as possible and assure our Muslim nation to be united having fait and trust in Allah, His love, mercy and help are everlasting and the day is not far when the invaders will leave our country and end the war in tears as their forefathers did.

I am pleased to learn that the Landmarks Commission has concluded that 45 Park Place will not be designated a landmarked site. I am very grateful to Chairman Robert Tierney and his colleagues for their careful and thoughtful consideration.

I am also deeply grateful to our local elected officials, Scott Stringer, Margaret Chin, Daniel Squadron, Andrew Cuomo, David Paterson, and Michael Bloomberg. Our faith community is indebted to them, and to our local community board, for their commitment to the democratic and constitutional ideals we all hold dear and which the community center we hope to create on the site will honor. We believe that Park51 will become a landmark in New York Citys cultural, social and educational life, a community center to promote the American values we all aspire towards and to realize a better city for all.

My testimony, submitted to the Commission earlier this month, sets forth my hopes and vision for the community center we would like to see built at 45 Park Place. In just over a week, Muslim New Yorkers will join friends of other faiths in welcoming the holy month of Ramadan. Muslims around the world dedicate this month to charity, service and community, ideals which I personally hold dear and which Park51 will move forward to realize.

Park 51 will be a home for all people who are yearning for understanding and healing, peace, collaboration, and interdependence. We are more determined than ever to take this opportunity, which we also see as a responsibility to our community and to our neighbors in Lower Manhattan. We are creating a new space where fresh stories of cooperation and service will reflect the living vibrancy of inter-connected communities.

It is our hope that, during this holy month, New Yorkers and Americans from all walks of life will join us in realizing our hopes and dreams for peace and happiness. The support of our partners, elected officials and friends has made this moment possible. Let us help build something that all New Yorkers - and all Americans - will be proud of.

Additionally, we appreciate the support received from the following organizations:
September 11th Families for Peaceful Tomorrows, J Street, The Arab American Family Support Center, Auburn Seminary, American Jewish Committee, Cause New York, Chautauqua Institute, Congregation B'nai Jeshurun, Faith House Manhattan, Friends of the Arava Institute, Interfaith Youth Core, Intersections, Interfaith Center of New York, The Interfaith Alliance, Jewish Community Center in Manhattan, Lutheran Seafarers and International House, New York Buddhist Church, Odyssey, New Seminary, Out of Cordoba Averros and Miamonides, NY interfaith Disaster, One Voice, One Spirit, St. Bartholomew's Church, Same Difference Interfaith Alliance, The Church of St. Paul and St. Andrew, Tanenbaum Center, The Foundation for Ethnic Understanding, Trinity Wall Church, The Healing of the Nations Foundation, The Migration Policy Institute, Union Theological Seminary, St. Peters Church, UN Special Envoy for HIV/AIDS in Asia and the Pacific, UJA Federation of New York.
