President to be Donald J Trump
5th Ave. New York, New York
Mr. President to be Donald Trump:
As an Afghan American and President of the National Coalition for Dialogue with the Tribes of Afghanistan, it is with greatest pleasure to extend our sincerest congratulations for your astounding success in achieving the Republican nomination for the Presidency of the United States of America.
The only other time that I believe such history was made was in 1980, when President Ronald Reagan, who like you won against major odds after being opposed by most of his party and labeled “too extreme” to be President, reached the highest office in the world. For the eight years of his Presidency, not only did he, with the partnership with the Afghan Freedom Fighters, rid the world of the Communist threat and end the Cold War, but also brought down the wall, to unite the Germanys. United States and the world, enjoyed peace during his Presidency.
Now, almost after nearly four decades, the world once again, has been given the good fortune to rekindle the Reagan era in you. I know the Reagan era well because I was one of the principle persons responsible for getting the stinger missiles to the Afghan Freedom Fighters and worked closely with the Reagan White House for the whole of his presidency with regard to Afghanistan. I was able to do so due to the relationship that exists between my family, the former royal family of Afghanistan, and each of the Afghan tribes, which gave me the unique ability to coordinate a nation-wide effort to resist the Soviets partnered with the United States.
Watching your campaign thus far, I have become convinced that the parallels between what you have achieved, and what Reagan achieved in 1980 and afterwards, bode well for the future of my adopted country, and of the world.
Today the world faces a crisis, the likes of which have not been seen since the Second World War. In previous crises the enemy has been easily identifiable and battles fought by and between soldiers and sailors. Today, the enemy is faceless, hiding behind black hoods, following a false religion by the name of Wahabism, established in Saudi Arabia in 1763, supported by the Ibn Saud Royal family, which believes in Jihad and murder of all those who do not submit to their rule.
Their followers are embedded in a number of nations around the world, ready to strike, when ordered by their leader Al Baghdadi.
As one who has been involved in the affairs of my Motherland, Afghanistan, I have had the misfortune to observe the destruction of Afghanistan over these past thirty plus years. The Afghan population has suffered inestimable destruction of life, liberty, history, and culture, and it is becoming all too easy to despair that it will ever achieve the heights of civilizational achievement and political and economic success that which I know it to be capable of.
After 9/11, when the United States came to Afghanistan to rid the world of Osama bin Laden and hordes of the Taliban and Al Qaeda, our people were elated and welcomed the US Forces with open arms and thanked Allah for delivering them from the great evil that had taken over their land.
Today, almost 15 years later, Afghanistan is still suffering atrocities committed against its population by the Taliban, Al Qaeda and the infestation of ISIS/ISIL/DAESH/ and several other terror groups supported by the Inter- Services Intelligence (ISI) of the Pakistani Military.
The infestation of the ISIL swarms is endangering lives, liberty and pursuit of happiness in many areas of the world and creating a refugee crisis also unseen since the Second World War.
Now we are at the doorstep of a new era. An even more dangerous era, one which would destroy multitudes of innocent lives, unless we take proper steps to stop it.
Al Baghdadi, is but one head of a multi headed dragon. To kill the dragon we must cut off all the heads and the limbs as well.
To succeed in this endeavor, we must force the evil out of its hiding places to destroy it. This cannot be done with bombs, especially in a mountainous country like Afghanistan or the sandy deserts of the Middle East. They have holes to crawl into and innocent people to hide among.
To destroy the wasps, one must destroy the hive. The Hive is represented by those nations in the Arab world who are funding them.
Your Excellency, the Afghans and all the other innocent populations of the Middle East and the civilized world need a strong Leader to instill fear in the hearts of these killers and to once and for all, get rid of them.
We see that Leadership in you. You have what the terrorists fear. A determination to go after them wherever they are and after those who are supporting them.
To that end, Mr. President, I stand ready to serve my Motherland Afghanistan and my adopted land, the United States of America. I would welcome the opportunity to speak with you or your foreign policy and national security aides about this. In the meantime, you have my full support as your campaign enters the general election fight.
May God Bless you and empower you to save the innocents from the jaws of the devil.
Prince Ali Seraj
Member of the former Afghan royal family
President, National Coalition for Dialogue with Tribes of Afghanistan
Former Afghan Presidential Candidate
As one who has been involved in the affairs of our beloved Homeland for over 35 years I have been a witness to the almost destruction of our culture, history and independence.
I have painfully seen the Martyrdom of tens of thousands of our fellow countrymen and women, at the hands of the Afghan Communists and the invading Red Army of the Soviet Union.
Our once proud and united nation, is now tearing at the seams. Our educated young are fleeing in great numbers to countries far beyond our borders. The decade long enemies of our nation, the Taliban, supported by neighboring countries, are taking control of major areas of different Provinces.
In short, brothers and sisters, this Great Land, which we call home and one which is our inheritance from our Forefathers, who fought for its Independence and one which was bestowed upon us as a Gift by Allah All Might (SWT), is in grave danger.
My fellow Afghans, we must accept the facts that all AFGHANS, regardless of ethnicity, religion, color or creed are ONE. We must encourage and promote all AFGHANS to support the future of Afghanistan and the prosperity of our people. Before self, before party, before tribe, our common bond empowers us all to forge a peaceful, unified Islamic Nation with a shared objective, within which we all are free to appreciate and celebrate the rich cultural diversity of our past.
Allah (SWT) has blessed our country with the resources needed for dramatic growth into a modern and progressive nation.
- Our fertile grounds have long been a source of the food that fed our people. Our rich agricultural history, vividly exemplifies our ability to grow and prosper.
- Our natural resources, can be developed for the good our entire nation and can be the foundation of a modern nation.
- Our cultural tradition scholarship, music and art can inspire our people to create new possibilities.
- Our modern communications gives us the ability to work together, drawing on the wisdom of the ages, to build a new awareness and speak in one voice.
Our most important asset is our dedicated, hard-working people. may they be young and old, rich and poor, women and men, Northerners or Southerners. Together we can mould our Tribal and Ethnic traditions into an invigorated national force, propelling Afghanistan forward into the 21st. Century. We can draw on the scholarships of Kandahar, the Music of Heart, the Wisdom of Balkh and the historical bravery of our people, to build our new Afghan Nation
The flowering of Afghanistan will be a light for the Muslim World. A beacon for all of humanity to see how a dedicated people can transform their lives and their country.
My fellow Afghans, we owe it to our children and their descendants, to make Afghanistan blossom, to lead Afghanistan to a new life, to light the flame of Afghan renewal.
I, therefore, beseach all of my brothers and sisters to see the bright future before us and unite to prosper.
May Allah All Mighty (SWT) be with you all.
