Extreme Jewish Fundamentalism
The Taliban are an extreme Sunni Muslim sect that has ruled
Afghanistan for close to a decade but is now on the way out
after running a rogue regime that sheltered Osama Bin Laden
and his obsession with worldwide Jihad (holy war)
against the West. They tried to implement a society that was
forced into observing their somewhat unique version of what a
proper Islamic society should be.

What Will Be the End?
We surely must continue to hope that things will change, that
the present situation, which seems almost rock bottom, will
change for the better. We must hope for the restoration of
honor and glory for the entire world when all of humanity
will be uplifted to a noble level, to a condition of unity
and peace, which is the most difficult of all.
