This morning Hamas sent their warmest congratulations to the Taliban for taking over the country and defeating the US occupation:
JPOST – In a first response to the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan, Hamas on Monday welcomed the move as a “victory” and congratulated the Afghan people for “defeating” the US.
“We congratulate the Muslim Afghan people for the defeat of the American occupation on all Afghan lands, and we congratulate the Taliban movement and its brave leadership on this victory, which came as the culmination of its long struggle over the past 20 years,” Hamas said in a statement.
“While Hamas wishes the Afghan Muslim people and its leadership success in achieving unity, stability and prosperity for Afghanistan and its people, it stresses that the demise of the American occupation and its allies proves that the resistance of the peoples, foremost of which is our struggling Palestinian people, will achieve victory.”
In a post on Twitter on Sunday night, Musa Abu Marzouk, a member of Hamas’s political bureau, wrote: “Today Taliban is victorious after it used to be accused of backwardness and terrorism. Now, the Taliban is more clever and more realistic. It has faced America and its agents, refusing half-solutions with them. The Taliban was not deceived by the slogans of democracy and elections and fake promises. This is a lesson for all oppressed people.”
Biden has given the Taliban it’s greatest victory in decades and terrorists around the world are celebrating. What a disaster.
But I’m sure Biden is enjoying his much needed vacation.
