The world should no longer accept to be jerked around by Netanyahu.

The Afghan nation is doomed to suffer. The people of Afghanistan are denied the “right to peace in their country”; meanwhile they are denied the right to organize any demonstrate [against their government and the US-NATO occupation], they are forced to endure a deliberate state of unemployment They are the victims of capitalism and imperialism. They are the unspoken victims of both US-NATO hegemony as well as economic warfare.
