|The following is advice that Amir Abdur Rahman Khan the amir of afghanistan gave to his succesors|
( in 1900) about how the kaafirun would seek to destroy afghanistan and how to deal with them.
"I do not want to name any power in particular, but i give hint for the information of my people that they must try to know the difference between the characters of various powers; some of them resemble a leech that goes on sucking the blood till a man dies without feeling any pains, while others are like a pinch that is very painful but does not kill-like a wasp of a non-poisonous nature, where there is great pain but no danger of death.
Some powers take countries by force of their strength and victories; others take them by treachery, fraud and stirring up home quarrels between the chiefs of the country, themselves keeping behind the curtain and benefitting by the folly of others...."
