LATEST AT THE BOTTOM OF THE POST – DON’T FORGET THE CAVEATS
I notice in my stats summary there’s some of you out there looking for the Taliban’s “Voice of Jihad” web page.
Here it is in English (for now, although the address has been pretty stable for some time based, according to WHOIS, in Kandahar) – http://shahamat-english.com/ Here it is in Arabic – http://shahamat-arabic.com/
- Also, the Taliban’s official “Operators are standing by!” donations page still seems to be up
Usual caveats: Don’t click on a link to a Taliban web site link if you don’t want the Taliban’s webmeister to see information about your computer connection. Having a link here =/= supporting the site’s contents/message/intent/mission, it’s just sharing for those who are interested in what the bad guys have to say.
31 AUG 2016 UPDATE: As usual, a link =/= an endorsement, and don’t link if you don’t want the Taliban’s webmeisters to get your shit, but here’s what seems to work as of this update:
31 Jan 2019 update: Since people still seem to be linking here on a regular basis, here’s some of the latest links – caveat above still applies.
Taliban’s Urdu-language site (working as of this update w/statements up to 28 Jan 2019 posted) Taliban’s Dari-language site (working as of this update – latest post 28 Jan 2019) Taliban’s Pashto-language site (working as of this update – latest post 27 Jan 2019) Taliban’s video channel, in Pashto w/some English text in videos (working as of this update) Official Taliban Spokesperson Twitter account (in English & “Persian” (Farsi?) – latest post 31 Jan 2019) Taliban English-language site (not working as of this post, but Google Search results show posts as recent as December 2018) Alternate Taliban English-language site (also not working as of this post)
- Videos/Statements from Taliban via Jihadology.org – more
- Analysis of Taliban & Statements @ Long War Journal (Full disclosure: I used to write for them around ~9-10 years ago – last published w/them in 2010)
6 Aug 2019 update: The only English-language Taliban site I could find still working as of this update is here.
15 August 2021 update: Taliban’s English site here seems to work, although connectivity has been spotty over the past few days. As of this post, you can also track Taliban statements (in Farsi) via their spokesperson Twitter feed here.
