The Kid Who Became A Radical Terrorist
It wasn’t long ago that we saw the news about Khalid, and how he joined the Al Qaeda (Al Qaeda of Afghanistan). He was an Al Qaeda affiliate, and was the son of a great-grandfather who was a high-ranking Al Qaeda leader. In this article, we will see how this all started.
The Khazraj family in Afghanistan, is a very famous family. Their history, origins and relations with the Taliban, Al Qaeda and the United States are so well-known, that it is impossible to go into all of it here. But, what we can say, is that one of the two sons (Khalid) who were born in 1984 in Afghanistan, was born to an important member of the Al Qaeda family.
It seems that Khalid joined the Taliban and Al Qaeda, because he hated America. It is believed that his father and grandfather fought the Soviets and also fought for Pakistan. So, perhaps it was because of all of these things, that Khalid, and his father could become loyal to Al Qaeda.
How is it that a boy from Afghanistan can come from a family like this? We just don’t know. Perhaps it was simply luck, or simply one’s family can make anyone do anything they want.
Another interesting thing about Khalid, and his background was that he had been in touch with British anti-terrorist police force. We also know that Khalid met with Osama Bin Laden during the week before he headed to Chechnya.
But one fact about Khalid, is that he seems to have more sympathy for the Taliban, than the US government does. He apparently believes that the Taliban should be allowed to decide for themselves whether or not they want to join Al Qaeda, and also that the US military is trying to get rid of all the men in Afghanistan, for some kind of an ‘American agenda’.
I have no clue as to how Khalid came to have these radical opinions, but he did, and they are starting to have a big impact on him. It is possible that he has the knowledge of Al Qaeda training camps, and tactics, from attending them. This has now caused him to become a fanatic, and he now holds extremist opinions, as well as wanting to kill Americans.
And we now see that Al Qaeda is using young children to gain their radical beliefs, as well as make them followers. So, it appears that our little terrorist Khalid, has made some great friends.
