The Taliban is in New York this week demanding acceptance into the United Nations. The terrorist regime, which invaded Afghanistan’s largest cities and controls 90 percent of the country, wants the UN to recognize the Taliban as the country’s official government. The Afghanistan seat is currently held by the Rabbani government, which was in power before the Taliban militia’s military takeover.
