What the Colonialists Do to Occupied Nations

January 23, 2010

The imperialist and colonialist powers, as their official policy, kill scientist, professionals and eminent literary and social figures of the Islamic Ummah. The same is true of Afghanistan where the notorious Blackwater is given free hand

to carry out this wicked task under the supervision of Joint Special Operations—a Pentagon undercover army which was previously under the command of Mc Crystal, the current top American commander in Afghanistan. The aim is to pave the way for uneducated, ignorant and unaware stooges to remain at the helms of power thanks to multi-faceted support of imperialism. Then the Western powers bind their surrogates by various agreements at the expense of national, cultural and religious values and vital interests of the nation. They take hold of all strategic assets of a country including telecommunication, dams, transportation, mines etc. After that, colonialism tends to plunder the wealth and natural resources with both hands. Similarly, the invading powers distribute national wealth among members of society unfairly and unequally, giving a lion share to their flunkeys and hirelings. As a result , majority of the society faces economic problems. Here, the colonialism benefits from the people’s poverty and use the poor people as servants to achieve goals of the invaders

. Imperialism encourages a negative competition among people for wealth and social statues to. During such competition, the competitors often do not think about their honor, culture, history and religion which is the very aim of colonialism because in such atmosphere, they can easily employ citizens of an occupied country to work for the objectives of colonialism. At the same time, colonialism spreads racial biases and differences in the society. This makes it possible for the colonialist powers to play some ethnicity groups against another and thus ensures its rule over the occupied society.

This is what are happening in Afghanistan today. On the one hand, America speaks of democracy and human rights but at the same time she supports warlords in Afghanistan whose hand are stained with blood of thousands of innocent people. Murderers like Abdul Rashid Dostum are flourishing under the very wing of Washington by giving him top slots in the Kabul administration instead of putting him on trial for the murder of thousands of miserable Afghans. In addition to this, colonialist powers send their religious groups, in this case, Christian missionaries to the occupied societies like Iraq and Afghanistan to convert Muslims to Christianity because they believe that the converted people honestly work for their political, economic and religious goals.

Many Afghan observers have regularly expressed their consternation about the presence of Christian missionaries in Afghanistan. This Western machination was exposed clearly when Mujahideen of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan captured 23 Christian missionaries of Saemmul Presbyterian Church, Seoul in Ghazni province.

Currently, both troops and Christian missionaries operate side by side in Afghanistan. They have opened offices in the country to Christianize Afghans. Some NGOs are also encouraging them to convert young Afghans. They give them Bibles and promise them citizenship in Europe and America. . They have rented houses in Kabul, apparently under the name of schools for students-- some of them for students of Helmand province.. They pay the money indirectly via some officials of Helmand province like Amir Shir Mohammad, ex-governor of Helmand province who has a leading rule in renting the houses. The missionaries arouse the students against the current Islamic Jihad and invite them to Christianity. No one is allowed to know about which that is actually happening inside the compounds of these schools. Local agents encourage students to get themselves enrolled in these schools. They blame Taliban for all the anarchy, the country is passing through and support American invasion of Afghanistan. Here, we see that how innocent students are misused for politically-motivated goals of the American colonialism . They do not care about trampling principles and violating internationally recognized human rights norms.
