zanazlee One new photo each week from my Afghanistan collection. Today, the tenth one is up for sale online at Fatbidin.Com - printed, framed and signed by yours truly.

Photo: Afghans pay their respects to national hero Ahmad Shah Massoud in Kabul, Aghanistan. (Photo by Zan Azlee, 2011)

Ahmad Shah Massoud, a Tajik, was assassinated two days before the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Centre in New York City. So many Afghans see him as a national hero that managed to pull all the different tribes in Afghanistan together.

Massoud had made a speech in Europe a few months before his death, predicting a major terrorist attack which many say was the 9/11 attack.

Of course, he has a deep history surrounding him as well because he was once one of the most influential military commanders who fought against the Soviets, and then the Taliban.

Although many Afghans consider him a hero, there are people who also see his status being so elevated as just a political tool by the different parties and politicians.

eugen_goutnick Неделя военной тематики: день шестой. Сегодня я решил немного пофилософствовать, и посвятить #скетч Ахмад Шаху Масуду - воину, политику, и философу. "Всегда праведен тот, кто защищает свою родину". #sketch #dailysketch #military #militaryart #Massoud #AhmadShahMassoud #watercolors #ink #pentel #art #illustration 1mon

ahmadshah_massoud ..
For those who don't know him or had not met him ,he was a #commander and a war strategist .
For the rest he was a Sophisticated and highly mannered role model .he struggled for dignity of #Afghanistan against masked Pakistani Invasion called Taliban and Al-Qaeda. A true and loyal sin if this soil .he lived with pride and fell with pride. He was killed in sophisticated suicide attack masterminded and executed by Al-Qaeda operatives and facilitated by the Taliban and the Pakistani establishment . His attachment to and love of the soil is to inspire generations and generations of Afghan to come . Rest in peace , legendary Ahmad Shah Masoud . I was lucky to server under his leadership .

ahmadshah_massoud مسعود بزرگ تنها يك شخص نبود !!
مسعود هويت مليون ها إنسان است 
مسعود اسطوره فرا قومي و فرا زباني و فرا منطقوي است 
خاموشي ما به معني ضعف ما نيست كه هر كاري كه بخواهند انجام دهند 
به ياد داشته باشند حذف تصاوير مسعود از دفاتر و ديگر ارگان ها پايان ناخوشايند براي حكومت مسخره ع و غ خواهد بود!!

ahmadshah_massoud ....
آن سفلگان دهر
ياران نيمه راه
بازنده گان برگه آزادى ورفاه
خون شهيد را كه به سرخى لعل بود
از بهر چند روزه غرور مقام و جاه
در اوج بى غمى
چون لايه هاى سبز زمرد فروختند . - (فريد طاهرى ) - #ahmadshahmassoud #Khurasan #Afghanistan #panjsher #sherpanjsher #bazarak #commender #mujahid #jihad #for #ALLAH #peace #shahadat #JannahAlFerdous #mubarez

ahmadshah_massoud Ahmad shah Massoud: The country Afghanistan has gradually been occupied by fanatics, extremists, terrorists, mercenaries,drug mafias, and professional murders. One faction , the Taliban ,which by no means rightly represents Islam, Afghanistan or our centuries -old cultural heritage , has with direct foreign assistance exacerbate his explosive situation . The are unyielding and unwilling to talk or research a compromise with any afghan side .
