To the Honorable Alice Wells
U.S. Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary for South and Central Asian Affairs
U.S. Department of State
RE: The July 7-8 Qatar Intra-Afghan Dialogue Is Simply a Farce. The Real Purpose of This Meeting Is to Divide Afghan Freedom Fighters.
Dear Deputy Wells:
We, the educated Afghans, who are not war profiteers and whose hands are not stained with Afghan blood, do not want Qatar and Germany and Afghanistan’s neighbors interfering in, controlling and arranging intra-Afghan gatherings for peace. Germany and Qatar, which have troops in this war, have their own interests which do not mirror those of Afghans. We, Afghans, are capable of managing our own peace affairs and intra-Afghan gatherings. We do not want foreign countries interfering in the peace process under the guise of helpfulness and concern. There is nothing to discuss for peace. The foreign occupies and their terrorist contractors/militias must leave.
I was invited to the peace gathering in Doha, Qatar, which was to be held on April 19, 2019. While I was in flight the meeting was canceled. However, when I arrived, communist Afghan war criminals, MI-6 and the CIA Afghan agents were already there with their daughters and young Afghan girls. It was not a gathering for peace. It was like a showcase of potential Afghan brides and the “who’s who” among Afghan spies. Intellectual Afghan women, such as Sister Sophia Omar who was removed from the invitee list at the last minute, were not invited.
We, intellectuals Afghans, are capable of arranging our peace gatherings, controlling the process and finding our own peace solution. After 40 years of superpowers and Afghan’s neighbors waging war, occupying Afghanistan, interfering in Afghan internal affairs and controlling peace conferences, we say no thank you. Enough is enough. We will control our own peace gathering. We have had enough of foreigners’ war, occupation and interference.

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.
