600 million for Taliban-Afghanistan: Why isn’t Merkel charged for supporting a terrorist organization?

What is the difference between needy flood victims in Ahrtal and the radical-Islamist terrorists in Afghanistan? The people in Germany have been robbed of their entire existence, not the least by the failure of politics; they can, perhaps — beginning in October — fill out online forms to apply for state subsidies, which will then, after a review, be paid out sometime. The Merkel government has immediately transferred €600 million to the Taliban terrorists without any bureaucracy or evidence. So much for the priorities of this federal government.
It should not be left unmentioned here that the federal government called on the population to financially support the victims of the flood catastrophe. The citizens with some of the world’s highest taxes and fees should also pay for the failures of politics with additional compensation payments. In the aftermath of the flood catastrophe, it became known that the federal government was responsible for large gaps in disaster control. Over 1,300 special vehicles were lacking, which the federal government was required by law to provide to the states for disaster control. Special vehicles for protection from and for the elimination of biological, radiological, and nuclear dangers are short by about 30%. The former chief of Technical Relief (THW), Albrecht Broemme, was quoted in Der Spiegel with the following words on disaster control in Germany: “The whole world is laughing at us”.
Taliban: Murderers of German soldiers receive German tax money
Until the takeover of the Taliban, politics and the mainstream media observed the same assessment of the fully-bearded radical-Islamists: A brutal, Middle Ages terror organization that oppresses girls and women, including forced marriages, rape, and stoning. Homosexuals are not only verbally persecuted, but sometimes end up on the gallows, and Islamic Sharia stands above any law or human rights.
The Taliban were mainly described as a brutal terror organization, who with bombs and suicide attackers blew up and mutilated thousands of Western soldiers. Afghans who were accused of being collaborators with the West were shot on the spot without any due process. In addition, the Taliban are close allies of other Islamist terrorist organizations, like Al Qaeda, who murder worldwide in the name of Islam as well as persecute and terrorize Western citizens as “unbelievers”.
Has anything changed in any of these points since the Taliban took Kabul in a coup and inflicted a humiliating military defeat on the West?
No, it has not. The blood of countless victims of their reign of terror, including the blood of dozens of murdered German soldiers, still clings to the hands of the Taliban and their close allies from Al-Qaeda.
What are the survivors and traumatized Afghanistan-veterans supposed to feel when the Chancellor of the Federal Republic stands in front of the microphones of the capital city (Berlin) press and announces talks now with the Taliban? These bloodthirsty Middle Ages monsters have now, from one day to the next, been upgraded by Mrs. Merkel to equal negotiating partners?
And the political disclosure oath of this government has not yet reached rock bottom. In a functioning democracy and independent justice system, the next issue should not only unleash an outcry in the society, but also have legal consequences for Angela Merkel and Heiko Maas. Because the amount of €100 million of German tax money, which Mrs. Merkel transferred to Afghanistan through the detour of UN organizations, was only a short time later increased by half a billion euros. Now it is an open secret that the Taliban terrorists are being paid a princely sum for every coup or for every “concession”, such as the Kabul evacuation. Whatever one wants to call this flow of money, “Taliban tax”, “humanitarian aid”, protection money, or blackmail payments, in the end, a large part of it will go directly to the Taliban.
This is also to be regarded as tricky. Because in the legal code, section 129a, “Formation of a terrorist organization,” in paragraph 5, just the support of a terrorist organization alone is punishable with a prison sentence of up to ten years.
And in the following section 129b StGB, “Criminal and terrorist organizations abroad,” the liability from section 129 a is also confirmed in Germany, especially if the acts and facts relate to Germany. 59 German army soldiers died in the war against the Taliban terrorists. That these murderers are now receiving €600 million of tax money is a scandal. That the millions-transfers are labeled as humanitarian aid does not change the situation.
