Afghanistan needs to be de-Islamized

Afghanistan is clearly in crisis and de-Islamization is needed in order to break the chain. However, the current policy of both Western donors and the government of Afghanistan are just maintaining the corrupt and inefficient status quo. It begs the question, why?
Hundreds if not trillions of dollars have been wasted on Afghanistan and does anyone notice any real change? Do you now have the start of a “new Afghanistan?”
Clearly the answer is that the same Islamic monoculture exists and you have no sexual freedom or religious freedom. Instead, the next generation is going to end up like the last generation and this applies to being brainwashed by the mosque and to keep women downtrodden.
Therefore, why did ex-President George Bush and the current leader President Obama, allow this to happen? Is it right to send American soldiers and other NATO troops to die for implementing and then maintaining Islamic Sharia law?
These innocent soldiers believe that they are aiding democracy and helping to install a bright future for the people of Afghanistan. Yet sadly this is not the case because political leaders are pandering to Islam and maintaining the structures which created such a backward society in the first place. It is clearly folly, but you have thousands of so called experts talking about counterterrorism but in reality the best way of doing this is via de-Islamization and not maintaining the status quo.
The land that became Afghanistan once had a flourishing culture which was diverse. This applies to Buddhism, Hinduism, Zoroastrianism, Christianity, Judaism, Shamanism, and other faiths. However, the Islamic invasions changed all this and the Islamic sword destroyed this rich diversity via dhimmitude, forced conversions, and controlling all the power mechanisms. The end result was a Muslim monoculture and the stagnation of society in Afghanistan. Therefore, modernization was crushed by the Islamic inquisition.
In my article called “USA and CIA helped to create Sunni Islamic terrorism” I stated the following:
“To place an exact date is complex because links between America and radical Sunni Islamic forces run deep but it is clear that democratic forces, nationalistic movements, pan-Arabism, socialism, and other more moderate forces were seen to be the enemy. For example, Egypt went from being secular under Nasser to adopting Islamic laws under the pro-American, Anwar Sadat.
The same scenario would happen in Pakistan because America welcomed General Muhammad Zia-ul-Haq who took power in the late 1970s. Therefore, Pakistan was transformed into a more Islamized nation whereby laws and other institutions would be Islamized. In time the USA would strengthen their ties with Zia-ul-Haq in order to fund the Islamic insurgency in Afghanistan.
The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) implemented Operation Cyclone and this policy was aimed at supporting the Afghan Mujahideen during the Soviet war in Afghanistan. Jimmy Carter and Zbigniew Brzezinski began a new policy whereby America would support radical Islam in the full knowledge that this meant supporting terrorism and a movement which supported killing all apostates from Islam and persecuting women.”
It is clearly true that the first Islamic jihad began when Mohammed ordered this and since the 7th century you have had countless Islamic jihads in Africa, Asia, and Europe. History clearly tells us that Islam supports the notion of a holy war and this notion led to the enslavement of many cultures and religions. Therefore, it is clear that while communism may have been a threat it was clearly much more enlightened than Islam when it came to women. However, just like Islam, communism believed in religious persecution but whereas Islam believes in the persecution of all non-Muslims, the communists believed in the persecution of all religions.
Yet, from an historical reality it was clear that Islam was the main enemy when it came to democracy, modernity, sexual equality, religious freedom, equality in law, and a world based on openness and shared values. After all, radical Islam, or Islam itself, is not tolerant because throughout history we have witnessed holy wars against Buddhists, Christians, Hindus, Jews, Zoroastrians, and others; and even in the 21st century Islam is at war with many other faith groups and it is at war with itself and killing Ahmadiyya Muslims and Shia Muslims.
Communism, pan-Arabism, fascism, and other political ideologies have come and gone; however, Islamic totalitarianism remains and it began with Mohammed and continues in many parts of the world today. Indeed, this Islamic totalitarianism is spreading even within democratic nations like America and the United Kingdom and many Islamists from these nations support the implementation of Islamic Sharia law and Islamic jihad.
Germany and Japan were defeated in the Second World War and German Nazism and Japanese fascism were crushed. The Japanese who believed that the Emperor was a God were soon enlightened by a new democratic constitution and democracy was installed in West Germany. Also, both societies were transformed and all the hatred was taken out of the major institutions and in a short time both nations would be transformed.
However, look at the reality of both Iraq and Afghanistan after America’s intervention because Najibullah and Saddam Hussein believed in secular law (yes both leaders used brutal measures in order to maintain power and control). Yet, astonishingly, both secular Iraq and Afghanistan were allowed to change the constitution and now both nations are based on Islamic Sharia law and this happened under America.
For many Christians in Iraq they have been turned into dhimmis and despite the despotic reality of Saddam Hussein, it is clear that they had more religious freedom and this applies to the legal system. Therefore, why did America and her allies support the implementation of Islamic Sharia law and help in the destruction of Christianity in Iraq?
Turning the clock back to modern times in Afghanistan then are we witnessing the flourishing of a new democratic order? Clearly no, and instead of changing the constitution like America and the allies did in Germany and Japan; we have the opposite, therefore, women are scared to show their face and converts from Islam face being killed.
It is clear that counterterrorism does not mean the implementation of Islamic Sharia and allowing the mosque and Islam to control society and create an Islamic monoculture. However, this is what is happening and astonishingly Saudi Arabia is still seen to be an ally despite this nation spreading radical Islam to so many nations.
In my article which I stated earlier I commented that “The late Benazir Bhutto stated that “You are creating a Frankenstein.” Benazir Bhutto stated this when she met President George H. W. Bush in the late 1980s. This “Frankenstein” would certainly come back to haunt America and Pakistan, and of course undermine Afghanistan to this day.”
Given this, then it is abundantly clear that the killing of Christian converts from Islam, stoning women to death, flogging people, chopping hands and feet off because of Islamic Sharia punishments, were all tolerated by America and the people who supported radical Islam in both Afghanistan and Pakistan (late 1970s to mid-1990s).”
However, let us refocus on modern day Afghanistan and the need for de-Islamization instead of more Islamization and maintaining the status quo.
If America and her allies want to change society then why did they go against what they did to Japan and Germany? It is clear that de-Islamization is needed in order to break the chains of the ongoing Islamic monoculture which is destroying the very fabric of society.
Education needs to be secular and a new generation needs to break free from Islamic indoctrination. The mass media needs to be free and newspapers, television stations, radio stations, and so forth, need a flourishing secular outlet and funding should be spent on developing this and the much needed secular education system.
Islamic funding from nations like Saudi Arabia must be banned because they have caused enough mayhem already. Also, the legal system needs to be changed and Islamic Sharia law must be abolished.
At the same time religious freedom must be enshrined in the new constitution and the same applies to female emancipation. Positive discrimination towards women must be installed until the chains of bondage are eradicated and laws must be implemented in order to protect females from honor killings, child marriage, and other evil forms of power and control.
The Islamic mosque must be taken out of politics and educating the next generation and instead the mosque must become a place of worship. Charity functions should also be secularized and the drug trade needs to be eradicated because this is aiding the Islamists and destroying society.
The current status quo means that converts to Christianity face the death penalty and women remain in the shadows. Surely the brave soldiers from America, the UK, and other nations, are not dying for this? It is therefore about time for political leaders to respect their deaths and focus on transforming Afghanistan and not appeasing backwardness and Islamization.
