Talibanernas folkmord i full gång...

 Fyra månader efter talibanernas maktövertagande i Afghanistan är det islamistiska folkmordet i full gång. Förmodligen har redan flera tusen poliser, militärer och andra av "den gamla regimens" folk mördats. Västerländska medier tycks helt ha tappat intresset för vad som hände efter att de sista evakueringsplanen lämnade Kabul. 

Den kyrkogårdens tystnad som nu brer ut sig över Afghanistan påminner om vad som hände i Indokina efter det kommunistiska maktövertagandet 1975.

Nyhetsbyrån UPI har samlat sprida glimtar av folkmordet liksom Human Rights Watch:

Nov. 30 (UPI) -- After forcibly sweeping back to power in Afghanistan in August, the Taliban executed over 100 former police and military members, according to a report released Tuesday by Human Rights Watch.

The 25-page report, titled "No Forgiveness For People Like You," describes how the Taliban rounded up former members of the Afghan National Security Forces, which includes police, intelligence service members, military personnel and militia.

After seizing power on Aug. 15 amid the withdrawal of U.S. troops, the Taliban promised amnesty to anyone who had opposed them, including former government and military employees and their families.

The reports confirmed that 47 people disappeared or were killed by the group between Aug. 15 and Oct. 31.

It also found credible information that more than 100 people were executed in four provinces alone. The report focuses on the Ghazni, Helmand, Kandahar and Kunduz provinces, but also says the same pattern of abuse likely extends beyond that.

"The Taliban leadership's promised amnesty has not stopped local commanders from summarily executing or disappearing former Afghan security force members," said Human Rights Watch associate Asia director Patricia Gossman.

Bilal Karimi, a deputy spokesman for the Taliban, told CNN he rejected the HRW's findings and that the Taliban established amnesty when it took over.

"Based on that, all military and non-military personnel of the former government were forgiven and told they could live normally in Afghanistan, that no one could harm them," Karimi said, acknowledging there were events when "some former forces were harmed," but not as many as reported.

The HRW report is based on 67 interviews with witnesses, relatives and friends of victims, as well as Taliban fighters with firsthand knowledge. It goes on to say members of the Taliban have also targeted family members of former security force members.
