Apparently the heroin sales aren’t bringing in all they need. “Taliban post on-line request for donations,” from AGI, April 18 (thanks to C. Cantoni):
(AGI) Kabul – The Taliban have posted a modern on-line an appeal to the Muslim world, requesting donations to finance their Holy War, jihad, against the “infidel invaders”. The message includes various toll-free numbers and email addresses so as to make things easier for “benefactors.” “According to Shari’ a, all Muslims everywhere have the duty to unite in jihad with money and with the spirit” says the request. “The Taliban are still carrying out their legitimate jihad alone and with no support, only the help of ordinary and honest believers of Islam and we urgently need financial aid from Muslim brothers all over the world for military and other expenses.” . .
