He does not seem like a good guy - quite the opposite. Glad that he is more or less out of commission :) or so it seems ;)

Actually since this 2003 PhD he has continued to be active in eastern Afghanistan and is increasing his networks in various regions of Afghanistan which contain his Ghilzai tribe and other old commanders. Some speculate that he is a tool of the government to kill off those opposition members that are signifincant threats to the government...... and many of him men and family are part of the Karzai government and openly support him.

AS Massoud and his allies had several opportunities to totally defeat and destroy all of Hekmatyars people - but the intellectual elite of Jamiat would not allow it - since they still felt and affinity towards their fellow Islamists.  Jamiat had this problem between the nationalist-moderate Islamic militay wing - and an out of touch Islamist intellectual civil political leadership. Having said that  - Rabbani was personally quiet moderate - but he was often unable to capitalise on Jamiats millitary prowess due to the internal tensions within his party.  In one notable example - the intellectual elite were growing jelous of Ismail Khan's increasing power inthe west of the country - and sought to promote another commander to there to counter him - someone called Afzali - but Ismail Khan was far more determined and he killed Afzali.   This led to Ismail Khan distancing himself more and more  fromJamiat political leadership - hence - the major Tajik fronts of the war were divided.  This later was a big problem....when the Talibs appeard and allied themselves with Uzbek Dostum who from the heart of the north started fighting both Ismail Khan and Massoud.

Anyhow - this resource is great - for it gives afresh prespective about this so called Islamist whom without a shadow of a doubt doesnot believe in any of the ethical values of Islam or any ethical values.
