This is the first part of a series touching on the various factors affecting the current state of affairs in Germany.
IS in Afghanistan operates under the name "DAESH Khorasan". The Taleban authorities claimed some time ago that they had fought DAESH and quashed the organisation entirely.
A small group of students, who met regularly in a pub in Kabul where they held heated discussions, were determined to take up an armed struggle against the formidable clan.
In 1929, after taking power in Afghanistan, Mohammad Nader Khan and his brothers established a new regime of terror and set about cleansing the country of Amanollah's supporters, altering Amanollah's reforms to suit their objectives, or eliminating them altogether and advancing the Pashtunisation agenda.
Prince Amanollah and General Mohammad Nader met one night in 1919 on the mountain "Sheerdarwâza" above the old city of Kabul. What exactly they discussed is not known, but Nader must have agreed to the conspiracy against Amir Habibollah... as became apparent as events unfolded.
