      HIKMATYAR's LATEST MOVE: OPEN ALLIANCE WITH AL-QAIDA.
      www.newtrendmag.org

      Daily KHABRAIN of Islamabad, a 'moderate' Pakistani
      newspaper,
      reported on December 27, that Afghan leader of Hizbe Islami, hiding
      in the mountains, has declared an open alliance with Al-Qaida. In a
      statement distributed in tribal areas bordering Pakistan, Hikmatyar
      declares that the time has come for this coalition to strike hard
      and unitedly at U.S. forces in Afghanistan.
      Readers might recall that U.S. media have reported (very
      briefly) a string of attacks on occupation forces during the first
      two weeks of December. One U.S. soldier was reportedly killed in
      Kabul as were SEVEN Germans in a downed helicopter. [Islamic media
      say the U.S. losses are much higher.
      SHOULD HIKMATYAR'S THREATS BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY? Kabul is taking
      it seriously. The Karzai government's news agency, Bakhtar, has
      issued a diatribe against Hikmatyar, accusing him of all kinds of
      crimes. Bakhtar sounds almost like a replay of Communist propaganda
      against the mujahideen during the jihad against USSR. On December
      29, KHABRAIN reported that Hikmatyar actually met Mullah Umar in
      Oruzgan province on Eid-ul-fitr to work out the alliance. The report
      is attributed to an Islamic militant named Maulvi Ubaidullah who met
      a private TV channel rep at a secret spot in Afghanistan.
      [Previouslu Hikmatyar had refused to hookup with Taliban and Al-
      Qaida.] The Hikmatyar moves come as a surprise because Pakisanis in
      many positions have been saying that the Taliban are finished. The
      report indirectly indicates that Mullah Omar is alive and active in
      the Jihad.
