Taliban: Suicide Bombings Were Justified From the Prophet's Days
The Taliban told CNN this week that they will defeat Obama.
In an exclusive interview with the news channel the spokesman for Mullah Omar said the Taliban want to fight for martyrdom:
The Taliban will target Afghan parliamentarians before the election.
The Daily Times reported:
The justification for suicide bombings comes from the days of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), according to Zabiullah Mujahid, a spokesman for Mullah Omar.
“They sacrificed some people, friends of Muhammad, for the sake of Islam. This is part of the jihad and part of the fighting. We will fight them and we will target them,” he told CNN.
Mujahid said the Afghan Taliban wanted the enforcement of sharia and Islamic government and to remove foreign forces from the country. “This is our country; we have to govern it,” he said.
He said the Taliban were against the coming Afghan elections, as they were going to be ‘selections’ from White House. “We want to disturb this election,” he said, reiterating that Afghan parliamentary members and government officials would be targeted.
Talking about the Taliban in Pakistan, he said, “We do not want to interfere in the Pakistan Taliban affairs,” adding that there were ‘sympathies between the two sides’. Referring to a rocket attack on German Chancellor Angela Merkel on her visit to Kunduz, Mujahid insisted, “I will tell you we will win; we have the support of Muslim nations and this is what we believe.”
He denied that there had been any talks between the Taliban and the Afghan government in Saudi Arabia.
