Statement of the Islamic Emirate Regarding the 17th Anniversary of the Illegitimate American invasion
Seventeen years ago, on 15th Libra 1380 Hijri (solar), (i.e. 7th October 2001 A.D.), Afghanistan was invaded by the NATO military coalition headed by America, as they violated the air and ground sanctuaries of our country.
Apparently, this invasion was started on the lame pretext of 9/11 incident, in which, neither Afghans were involved, nor did they know of it, nor had America presented such evidences which could provide a sensible and logical base for their illegitimate invasion.
At the time, a stable Islamic system was implemented on 95% territory of the country which was just emancipated from factional anarchism and internal fighting by restoring peace and stability all over.
For the justification of their brutal and illegitimate invasion and getting rid of the future accountability of their deeds against the oppressed and innocent Afghan masses, the foreign invaders proclaimed their goals as following:
- Afghanistan will be stabilized.
- Drugs will be eradicated.
- A government system as desired by the Afghans will be formed.
- Peace, stability and security will be restored.
But today, nearly two decades later, everything is overturned. Afghanistan is still lacking peace, stability and a normal life.
Prior to the American invasion, drugs were minimized to naught by the Islamic Emirate, but now drugs exceed the world record once again.
Afghans do not have the form of government they desire. Afghans have been given a most corrupt, dishonest system full of anarchy and chaos, imposed on Afghans by their military jets and tanks.
Regarding peace and stability, according to the surveys and reports of independent organs, more than forty thousand civilian people were killed and wounded in the previous one year alone. UNAMA announces that the level of civilian losses and casualties has escalated to 52% due to the indiscriminate bombing and night raids of the foreign invaders and the mercenary forces of Kabul regime. It is confirmed by Bahrami, the so-called defense minister of Kabul regime, that just in one month 1300 of their forces were killed and wounded.
Besides killing, agonizing, torturing, looting, insecurity and public chaos, numerous other social evils have been produced here by the American invaders who instigate ethnic and linguistic differences. Our youth are deprived of their prides by indulging them in western immoralities. Women lives are critically endangered under the disguise of women’s rights. Besides moral corruption, numerous of our youth are made drug addicts.
Indiscriminate bombing of civilian houses, mosques, madrassas, clinics and other places of public interests by the foreign occupying forces and their internal stooges has become a routine.
Therefore, the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan severely condemns the brutal invasion of American and their allied forces and its continuance by reminding the foreign occupiers on the eve of 17th Anniversary of their brutal invasion to withdraw their forces from our homeland by ending their occupation and ceasing further bloodshed of innocent Afghans by their abominable presence, by leaving the Afghans to decide about their country and future themselves.
This is the only sound and rational way reiterated by the Islamic Emirate for a realistic and factual solution of the issue.
Otherwise, the pious Afghan masses will perpetuate their legitimate struggle under the sincere leadership of the Islamic Emirate until and unless you, the invaders, are expelled from our homeland just like the previous ones.
In-sha Allah! (God willing)! And it is never hard for Almighty Allah!
The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan

Abdul Kadir Mohmand was born in Kabul, Afghanistan. He currently resides at Kalamazoo, Michigan. He graduated from Kabul High School. On an UNESCO scholarship, Mr. Mohmand studied at Sofia University, Bulgaria from 1976 until 1978 when his studies were interrupted by the Communist seizure of power in Afghanistan. The new Afghan Communist government ordered the Bulgarian government to return him to Afghanistan because he was anti-communist. Mr. Mohmand requested political asylum. With the help of the United Nations and the U.S. Embassy, he arrived to Italy and then the United States in 1979.
Mr. Mohmand returned to his studies and earned his B.S. in 1983 from Western Michigan University. He found employment in various positions in the engineering business. For many years, he worked for BFI and was country operations manager for BFI Italia. Currently, Mr. Mohmand owns a shopping center and develops commercial properties.
During the 1980s, Mr. Mohmand was the Representative of the Afghan Mujahideen for North America. During the 1980s, Mr. Mohmand returned to Afghanistan to fight as a freedom fighter against the Soviets and Afghan communists. Through an arrangement with Borgess Hospital in Kalamazoo, Michigan, Mr. Mohmand would bring back wounded Afghan children and Mujahideen for medical treatment at Borgess and recuperation in his home in Kalamazoo. He formed and was president of a nonprofit, Aid for Afghanistan.
In the 1980s, Mr. Mohmand also worked with the Committee for a Free Afghanistan in Washington D.C to bring wounded Afghans to the United States for medical treatment.
For the past four decades Mr. Mohmand has dedicated his life to working to achieve true peace and stability in Afghanistan.
A few years ago, Mr. Mohmand organized educated Afghans intellectuals across the world who drafted a comprehensive plan for peace. Presently, he has united many different Afghan peace organizations under one umbrella. The goal of this network is to unite Afghans to bring true peace in and the independence of Afghanistan. This network wants to be the bridge between the Afghan freedom fighters and the silent Afghan majority, and the Western World in any peace negotiations.
Mr. Mohmand wants true peace and stability in Afghanistan. As a veteran of war, Mr. Mohmand hates war.
