Requiem for Burhannuddin Rabbani

by Administrator15. November 2012 11:51

I wrote this blog a great while ago but with the situation heating up in most Islamic countries it is an actuality again. 

Today I read in the Wall Street Journal that Burhanuddin Rabbani, a negotiator for Hamid Karzai, was killed by a suicide bomber, a Taliban, who carried a bomb in his turban. He was allowed into Rabbani’s presence under the guise of peacemaker, a Taliban working on reconciliation. He greeted Rabbani in Allah’s name, shook his hand, set off the bomb and blew up himself, and the man who believed he was an instrument of conciliation for his war-torn country. But you cannot reconcile with the devil—for the devil only loves destruction.

Of course you would not know who Rabbani was. I, however, knew him. Not well, I met him only once, cursory. We talked through an interpreter, and most of the conversation was with my husband. That event took place in 1983. My husband I were in Pakistan, representing American Aid for Afghans, carrying humanitarian supplies. He represented the Northern Alliance, for which his son-in-law Massoud, “the lion of the Panshier,” was fighting the Russians.  Most of what I know about Rabbani I heard from others. They say he was decent man that he cared about Afghanistan. He fought against the Russians, was an ally of Mojaddedi’s, and early on, was president of Afghanistan. His presidency lasted only a few months and was destroyed by the Taliban.

The Taliban and Alkaida do not operate under any honor systems evolved in modern society. No, to the contrary, their belief and honor system is set in the old cultural norms and societal mores dating back to 700 BC. They believe that treachery and deceit is honorable if it furthers your cause.

Having killed Rabbani, the Taliban has accomplished one their greater goals, which are to make it impossible for any government other than a Taliban government based wholly on Sharia law to govern Afghanistan.  The idea that women can play any role in society is abhorrent to those Muslims, for their total domination over all things female is uppermost on their slate.  A thinking, educated woman working in society would preclude that she can be enslaved as these men want her to be.

Burhannuddin Rabbani is the fourth important, moderate Muslim person in Afghanistan that I personally knew, or had indirectly worked with, who was assassinated through treachery. Massoud, was killed by two thugs working for Osama bin Laden, posing as photographers for a large newspaper. Mr. Hashmatullah Mojaddedi, first president of Afghanistan, was almost killed with his entire family, by a stinger missile taking off the cone of the airplane, as the plane came in for a landing at Kabul airport. Professor Majroo of the Kabul Free Press, relocated in Pakistan and was killed, sitting on his desk, one day after my husband I had visited with the urbane, kind man. His crime: he had published a survey taken in the Afghan camps, showing that 99% of the people wanted the kind to return. They did not want to be governed by any faction of the Mujahiddin.

We should sing requiem for Rabbani and all the moderate Muslims, for they will need our support and good will in the brutal world they must survive in.

About the author

Born in Germany in 1941, Sigrid Weidenweber remembers the horrific aftermath of Fascism. At the end of the war, she found herself living under Communism. Both of these totalitarian regimes left indelible marks on her psyche and a healthy distrust of government’s, usurping too many powers to control people, supposedly for their own good. After the Berlin Wall was built, she managed to escape the repressive environment with the help of friends and a French passport. To this day she does not speak French.

She holds degrees in medical technology, psychology and an Honorary Doctor of Letters from Concordia University of Portland, Oregon for her trilogy "The Volga Flows Forever."

 Her first published book, “Escaping the Twilight,” deals with aspects of medical anthropology in an Islamic culture. In her trilogy the Volga Flows Forever, she brings to life Catherine the Great in her multiple roles as monarch, woman--lover, mother, grandmother and head of the general staff of the army, in volume one. The following two historical volumes deal with the Volga Germans brought to Russia by Catherine's edict.  The last book, “From Gulag to Freedom,” describes the lives of Russian-Germans and minority populations under Stalin’s regime and the systematic eradication of these minorities. The last part of the book is a comparison of communism, Russia, versus free enterprise in the USA. The heroin of the book settles in Fresno, California.

Three years ago she moved to Santa Rosa Valley, California from Portland Oregon. She has passionately embraced California together with her family that also resides here.

Always active, lecturing on historical and anthropological subjects and being a part of arts and culture in Portland, Oregon, she bestrode the same path when she came to California and is active on the Northwest Symphony League Board.

At present she is writing a memoir of her early childhood during WW I and later young adulthood under Communism.
