Afghanistan’s most persecuted religious and ethnic minority, Shiite Hazaras, are being wooed by their most oppressive tyrant, the Taliban. According to reports, the Taliban has recruited one of its local leader from the Hazara minority community. The new governor of the Taliban’s shadow government in Balkhab district, Sar-e-Pul province in northern Afghanistan is Mawlawi Mahdi, a Shiite cleric militia leader. Previously, there have been reports indicating a few instances of cooperation between the Hazaras and the Taliban, and the presence of a small number of Hazaras in the Taliban rank and file. For instance, in 2012, reports emerged of around a dozen Shia Hazara men fighting alongside the Taliban in Qarabaghi, Ghazni province. However, such instances are an exception, and there has been no indication of widespread recruitment of Hazaras by the Taliban.

And they could improve their image if they just stopped killing people. Really, it is that simple.

The animosity between the various groups and clans goes back for centuries.
Western people have no hope of ever understanding their tribal mindset or intricacies of the conflict. ... :cool:

That’s not going to happen, of course.

The Taliban will patiently wait for the Americans to leave – however long that takes.

Interestingly enough------arabs----with their INTRICATE BARBARITY is-----part of WESTERN CULTURE. DA EAST------is over there---India, China, Japan. The
seeds of WESTERN CULTURE is----traditionally----Egypt and MESOPOTAMIA -----not the Indus valley.
What most americans do not understand is that ---persons called "muslims" play with semantics

The Taliban saw what was happening regarding minorities in the west and decided to take a knee and be more inclusive.
