Turkiston: The Tashkent conference reminds the Geneva and Astana conferences, organized in order to restrain Syrian armed opposition groups: They have even the same trends – separating mujaheeds and turning them into several groups ideologically hostile to each other, and sparking murderous war between them. The purpose of the Tashkent conference is to defeat Taliban finally. Remember Syria. Only representatives of several unfaithful groups prone to moderate Islamization were hanging around in those conferences. As for those who refused to agree with the Kufr, they are bombed and slaughtered including their children and wives. Then, another conference will be organized, and if they refuse again, they are slaughtered again. And then again… The purpose of these conferences is not signing peace agreements or achieving welfare. Their true purpose is to separate god-fearing Muslims from “moderate Muslims” prone to the Kufr. Then, if these true Muslims are minority, they will be destroyed before they gain strength, as they are doing it towards Syrian revolutionary movements.
