Taliban threaten attack against Netherlands
The Taliban are threatening to carry out an attack in the Netherlands if Freedom Party leader Geert Wilders’ anti-Islam policies are introduced, according to the Dutch newspaper telephone interview with Zabiullah Mujahed, the official Taliban spokesperson for East and North Afghanistan.
"If he succeeds in manipulating the Dutch parliament into passing more anti-Islamic legislation or laws that disadvantage Muslims, there is no doubt Muslims from other countries will take action to assist their Muslim brothers and sisters," Mr Mujahed said.
Earlier, the Taliban in Pakistan also spoke in favour of an attack in the Netherlands. In an interview with the Television channel RTL Nieuws, Pakistani Taliban commander Wali-ur Rehman said he wanted to teach the Netherlands a lesson for its “anti-Islamic tone”.
