Hamas Congratulates the Taliban
Hamas, the terrorist organization governing the Gaza Strip, congratulated the Taliban reconquest of Afghanistan and the “defeat” of the United States. This after President Biden withdrew the remaining American forces from its capital Kabul. Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi also commented, saying, “The military defeat and the US withdrawal from Afghanistan should offer an opportunity to restore life, security, and lasting peace in that country.”
With all the congratulatory remarks coming from Hamas, Iran, even China in some ways, is a sign that this was the wrong way to leave Afghanistan. Biden’s withdrawal has Hamas cheering. It has Iran ready to pounce. Iran sits right on the border of Afghanistan and they have troops ready to go, ready to pounce into Afghanistan. China is already congratulating the Taliban, saying that they recognize the Taliban as the government over Afghanistan, which just shows that they’re looking for an opportunity. The negative ramifications of our President’s decisions are numerous. He has opened America and Israel up to new potential terrorist threats.
