We should stay out of Muslim affairs, just let them murder and abuse each other; bomb them from afar and just go in and take the resources we need by force.

And of course send every single muslim in our lands back to islam. Shitholes, disgusting people and an obnoxious system of belief.

Afghan security forces have withdrawn from a number of military bases and police checkpoints throughout the country, allowing for the Taliban to easily walk in and expand areas it controls and contests throughout the country.

Nearly forty percent of the police checkpoints have been shut down and policemen have been relocated elsewhere, the Ministry of the Interior confirmed.

“We have reduced the presence of police in more than 6,000 checkpoints to 113 bases and 3,700 checkpoints—the move was aimed to reduce the role of police in war and instead to transfer the war responsibilities to the Ministry of Defense,” Massoud Andarabi, the Minister of the Interior said, according to TOLONews.

The Afghan military has not stepped in to make up for the withdrawal of police forces in this rapidly deteriorating security situation.

The Taliban is now manning checkpoints on the Kunduz – Takhar highway, as well as the Pul-i-Khumri – Mazar-i-Sharif highways, TOLONews reported.

The Afghan military confirmed that a military base in Bala Murghab was abandoned “to avoid threats” from the Taliban. The district center fell to the Taliban on May 27, 2019, and the Taliban has had effective control of the district since then. Afghan military forces have been besieged at the base.

In a statement published on the Taliban’s Pashto-language version of Voice of Jihad, the group said it was “the last base of Kabul administration” in the district. Taliban Spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid released a video from the vacated base in Bala Murghab.

The Taliban has remained on the offensive all across Afghanistan despite signing a so-called peace deal with the U.S. on Feb. 29, 2020.

U.S. officials have maintained that the agreement calls for the Taliban to “reduce violence,” however there is no explicit mention of that whatsoever in the short, four-page document.

Instead, violence across Afghanistan has increased in the wake of the agreement.

The Taliban has been clear that it will not share power with the Afghan government. In the Taliban’s eyes, the only acceptable outcome to the decades-long conflict is the return of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, with its emir, Mullah Habitulah Akhundzada as the leader. To further this goal, the Taliban has pressed its military offensive against the Afghan government and security forces.

The Taliban has effectively seized control of most of the districts surrounding the provincial capitals of Baghlan (Pul-i-Khumri), Helmand Lashkar Gah), Kandahar (Kandahar City), Kunduz (Kunduz City), and Uruzgan (Tarin Kot), according to The New York Times.

Over the past five years, the Taliban has seized control of Kunduz City (twice), Farah City, and Ghazni City for short periods of time. FDD’s Long War Journal assesses that Farah City, Ghazni City and Maidan Shar, the capital of Wardak province, are under direct Taliban threat.

The biggest problem Antony is that it will no longer be possible to send back refugees to Afghanistan. If we had stayed out of muslim conflicts we would not have had this flood of muslims coming at us. Get out and stay out is my motto.

Bomb from afar!

Afghanistan is a dead loss, though I think initially we were right to go in there with a limited strike against the Taliban, but there has been no serious analysis of why we went into other wars in the Middle East, such as Iraq,Libya and Syria that are of no use to the people of the West.. just whose benefit were they in ?...

The war in Afghanistan was a complete waste, the Taliban is back in power.

There is no moderate version of Islam.

“The reason these ulema are getting targeted is because they tell the truth — and the truth is that the ongoing fighting is just for power,” 

This is self-deceit, and someone confusing truth and fact. Fact and truth are not one and the same, even though they ought to be. Believing something to be true does not make it so. It is true that some people believe in things that are not true.

  • Fact is the ideology of Islam in its entirety.
  • Truth is what each individual faction believes it to be.

The Taliban is fighting for what I believe to be the true version of Islam. The  moderate version of Islam is a self-deceiving fiction generated for political reasons. The political reason being to avoid a direct confrontation with Islam that would involve a very high degree of unpleasantness. Is this cowardice or political miscalculation?

“It is impossible to estimate the exact number of Islamic scholars executed by the Taliban over dissenting opinions” “Hundreds are believed to have been killed over the past 16 years of war,”

Anyone that criticizes islam, Muslim or non-Muslim, is likely to be killed. That is the true nature of Islam, the violent version that forces itself on others; the version that Westerners find so hard to understand.

Of course the Taliban is fighting for power that is what Islam is all about, domination.

Trump Will Inherit a Losing War in Afghanistan
He didn’t break it, but he needs to decide to either buy it or return it

Taliban Video Shows Kidnapped U.S.-Canadian Family - Breitbart

Very sad, but this is what happens to utopianists when reality hits.

Muslim Terrorism Count

Thousands of Deadly Islamic Terror Attacks Since 9/11

Mission Overview

Most Western societies are based on Secular Democracy, which itself is based on the concept that the open marketplace of ideas leads to the optimum government. Whilst that model has been very successful, it has defects. The 4 Freedoms address 4 of the principal vulnerabilities, and gives corrections to them. 

At the moment, one of the main actors exploiting these defects, is Islam, so this site pays particular attention to that threat.

Islam, operating at the micro and macro levels, is unstoppable by individuals, hence: "It takes a nation to protect the nation". There is not enough time to fight all its attacks, nor to read them nor even to record them. So the members of 4F try to curate a representative subset of these events.

We need to capture this information before it is removed.  The site already contains sufficient information to cover most issues, but our members add further updates when possible.

We hope that free nations will wake up to stop the threat, and force the separation of (Islamic) Church and State. This will also allow moderate Muslims to escape from their totalitarian political system.

The 4 Freedoms

These 4 freedoms are designed to close 4 vulnerabilities in Secular Democracy, by making them SP or Self-Protecting (see Hobbes's first law of nature). But Democracy also requires - in addition to the standard divisions of Executive, Legislature & Judiciary - a fourth body, Protector of the Open Society (POS), to monitor all its vulnerabilities (see also Popper). 
1. SP Freedom of Speech
Any speech is allowed - except that advocating the end of these freedoms
2. SP Freedom of Election
Any party is allowed - except one advocating the end of these freedoms
3. SP Freedom from Voter Importation
Immigration is allowed - except where that changes the political demography (this is electoral fraud)
4. SP Freedom from Debt
The Central Bank is allowed to create debt - except where that debt burden can pass across a generation (25 years).

An additional Freedom from Religion is deducible if the law is applied equally to everyone:

  • Religious and cultural activities are exempt from legal oversight except where they intrude into the public sphere (Res Publica)"
