German Taliban video – Elif Media
Well the first thing that strikes me is the rather blantantly obvious that these guys identify with the Taliban instead of al Qaeda. Yet, the nasheeds they are using are traditionally found in al Qaeda videos. I’m quite fascinated by this. Anyone out there with any thoughts on this. I haven’t seen that many Taliban videos in my travels due to their obvious issues with this medium and I don’t recall having seen nasheeds in them. Am thinking here of some epistemological confusion. But will leave to Jarret to unpack this.
UPDATE: Ibn Siqilli has pointed out to me that Taliban videos do in fact have Nasheeds in them. Thank you! And how interesting. FYI links are provided in the comments below.
Meanwhile thanks as ever to Nick Grace for making me aware of this video. Links can be found here.
