WAIS FAIZI OF THE MUSTAFA HOTEL, KABUL
Friends,
It is with great regret to have to post here announcing the death of Wais Faizi, manager of the Mustafa
Hotel in Kabul.

Many travellers who have passed through Kabul since the fall of the Taliban have stayed at the
Mustafa, and enjoyed Wais's unique brand of hospitality. An Afghan of the highest standard, and with
a thick New Jersey accent to boot, Wais was immortalized in Christina Lamb's 'The Sewing Circles of
Herat', where he became dubbed 'the Fonz of Kabul'. Wais ran an open house for travellers and
journalists, and was an incredible fixer. If you needed it, he could get it. The Mustafa's bar was
sometimes a little crazy, but Wais welcomed everyone regardless, insisting that the Mustafa meant
always having people to stay in his front room.

Details of Wais's are sketchy right now, but first reports are that it was not by violence. He was 36
years old. He was buried at the foot of TV Tower Hill.

Rest in peace, friend - we'll see you on the other side of the Frontier.


AFGHANISTAN TO HAVE ITS OWN ZIP SOON
Afghanistan will get the Zone Improvement Plan (ZIP) code in one month time to be used
internationally, to have this communication identity for the first time for the backward country,
officials said on Wednesday. Muhammad Yasin, head of the post department of the communication
ministry, told Pajhwok Afghan News: "We contacted the Universal Postal Union (UPU) and sent it the
required numbers and alphabets to develop a zip code for Afghanistan." When technical work is
finished, UPU will introduce Afghanistan's zip code software to other countries of the world as to
internationalize it, said Yasin.

A zip code made from alphabets and digits is used as identical means for addresses of locations in
world postal system. Yasin said they have already selected 13 alphabets and digits for the country,
beginning with AF, but the number could go up with increase in the quantity of populations and cities
in Afghanistan. During the past five years, the communication ministry has managed to rebuild the
domestic postal system in addition to preparing the international zip code. Afghans have been using
zip codes of other countries in their concerned businesses so far. Yasin said thy were also planning to
make a postal code for the country, but it there are still problems of lack of clear maps and addresses
of cities and roads, a jot yet to be done by the municipality. Muhammad Asif Akbari, an official of the
Kabul Municipality, told this news agency that they will finish work of giving specific names to roads
and different parts of the capital which hasnt been named clearly in terms of addresses so far.

REBUILDING BUDDHAS BECOMES SYMBOL IN REBUILDING AFG
For more than a millennium Afghanistan's lush Pamir valley lay beneath the benevolent gaze of two
colossal standing Buddhas, monuments to an efflorescent history of pilgrims and merchants, of
religion and culture. In 2001, the statues were destroyed by the ruling Taliban, some say out of
religious fanaticism, others as a political statement against the West. What's left are fragments of stone
and wood strewn across the war-torn land like broken pieces of a once resplendent past. The statues
were built sometime in the 6th century as part of a larger Buddhist monastery, itself the center of a
major religious and trading post on the Silk Road connecting Europe to the Tang Dynasty capital in
China. Much of the area, as well as present-day Pakistan and parts of North India, belonged then to the
rulers of the Kushan Empire, an Indo-European people ancestral to the present-day Pashtuns that
inhabit the valley. The Kushan empire thrived from the wealth of culture and trade that flowed across
the Silk Road.

Unlike today, Buddhism in the 6th century was also a major proselytizing faith, sending missionaries
far and wide to convert rulers and thereby entire peoples to its doctrine. Kings and emperors alike saw
in Buddhism a powerful tool to unite, and in many ways subjugate, a people to the royal will. The
rulers of Kushan were no doubt of this mind, and the building of the mammoth stone Buddhas would
serve as a testament to the spiritual and political power of the state. It was a project born of faith and
politics, state and religion. In 2001, when the Taliban set their rocket launchers on the still, serene
faces of the two Buddhas, the world stood up in outrage, aghast at the callous and wanton destruction
of such valuable treasures of ancient human history. For many, it was further proof of the inhumanity
of Afghanistan's Islamic rulers.

Wanton, yes! Inhuman, maybe. One has to remember that in 2001 Afghanistan was experiencing a
severe drought, with thousands suffering from starvation. In March of that year, the New York Times
reported that in the midst of famine-like conditions, a foreign delegation had offered money to
renovate the Bamyan statues, and had refused to allocate a portion to relieve hunger. Outraged, the
Taliban's clerics sealed the fate of the Bamyan Buddhas. Or did they? Since the U.S.-led invasion
ousted the Taliban from power in Afghanistan, a host of countries including Japan and Thailand have
offered to rebuild the statues. Today teams of Afghans under the direction of a German architect and
Italian engineers work to rebuild the two Buddhas. It strikes me as ironic since a century ago, it was
Europeans who led in the looting of Afghanistan's cultural relics, bringing back the heads of stone and
marble Buddhas to be put on display, a symbol of Europe's preeminence in all things, past and present.
And yet it was exactly these stolen treasures that first introduced Westerners to the beauty and
elegance of Afghanistan's Buddhist art. Which brings us back to Bamyan.

Bamyan's Buddhas stood in the midst of war, of oppression and religious fanaticism. Obscured by the
dust and smoke of gunfire, they seemed a dim recollection of a more glorious period now far removed.
One has to wonder, in light of this, what the symbolic significance of these two Buddhist statues can
be for an Islamic country desperate to rebuild itself, and for the larger world which shares in a piece of
the country's past and present. The destruction of these statues by the Taliban is certainly not the first
time a government has attempted to erase history in order to create a new nation with a new ideology.
And yet, as with the shards of the two Buddhas, history remains, broken but powerful. An interesting
feature of the two statues was their Greek influence, a reflection of the highly cosmopolitan world of
the Silk Road. The statues were a blending of East and West. Today, as Europeans and Afghans work
to reclaim the splendor of Bamyan piece by piece, painstakingly putting back together the fragments of
a shattered past, perhaps the statues will symbolize a new Afghanistan, one that embraces a diverse
and inspiring past, gazing, like the Buddha, at a more prosperous future. Copyright NAM

UN REAFFIRMS COMMITMENT TO HELP REINFORCE HR IN AFG
KABUL: The top United Nations envoy in Afghanistan on Friday pledged the world organization`s
support in entrenching fundamental human rights in the strife-torn country. Welcoming President
Hamid Karzai`s recent decree confirming the appointment of three new commissioners to the
Afghanistan Independent Human Rights Commission (AIHRC), Secretary-General Kofi Annan`s
Special Representative Tom Koenigs stressed the crucial role played by the rights body.

"Since its establishment in June 2002, the Afghanistan Independent Human Rights Commission
(AIHRC) has played a vital role in protecting and promoting the human rights of all of Afghanistan`s
peoples," he said in a statement. "I welcome President Karzai`s recent confirmation of three new
appointments to the commission and hope that the new commissioners will continue their work with
the same commitment and effort that the AIHRC has demonstrated since it was established. "The
United Nations remains committed to supporting the work of the AIHRC and we will continue to work
with the commission as it strives to build recognition and respect for fundamental human rights across
Afghanistan," he added.


AFG-IRAN SIGN MOU ON ECONOMIC COOPERATION
KABUL - Afghanistan and Iran Thursday signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to bolster
bilateral cooperation in fields of economic relations and trade in a year. The MoU was signed by the
Afghan Foreign Minister Rangin Dadfar Spanta and his Iranian counterpart visiting Kabul Manochehr
Muttaki in their second meeting. Spanta told reporters after the meeting that in addition to of economic
cooperation they also discussed issues of cultural exchange and security situation. He said aim of the
MoU was to boost up economic ties between the two countries.

He said Iran was a historical friend of Afghanistan and that its strained relations with US, a strategic
ally of the latter, will not cast any effects on friendship of the two neighbors. "Iran is a good ally of
Afghanistan in war on terrorism and drugs and its nuclear activities pose no threat to us," said Spanta.
Muttaki, for his part, termed signing of the MoU as an important document for doubling commercial
and economic cooperation between the two countries. He said Iran was committed to take active part
in reconstruction of its war-ravaged neighbour because stability and prosperity in Afghanistan was
beneficial for Iran and the whole world.

On the issue of presence of foreign troops in Afghanistan, Muttaki said the international forces were in
Afghanistan for keeping security. He said the foreign forces would withdraw when the Afghan forces
became able to shoulder the security. This session of the Afghan and Iranian foreign ministers was part
of the periodical meetings of the two on bilateral and regional issues. The first foreign ministerial
meeting was held in Tehran two years ago.


FORMER AFGHAN KING CANCELS MEETINGS DUE TO ILLNESS
AFG's former king, Mohammad Zahir Shah, is ill, a spokesman for the family said on Tuesday.
"He is under the care of doctors in bed and that is why he can't hold meetings," said the spokesman,
Fazl Ahmad Popal. He did not give details about the former king's illness but said it was linked to his
age. Zahir Shah is 92. Zahir Shah holds no power but was given the symbolic role of "Father of the
Nation" after he returned to AFG from decades of exile in Italy in 2002, after the Taliban were ousted.
Since then he has been living in Kabul, often holding meetings with tribal leaders. Zahir Shah
ascended the throne in 1933 after his father was assassinated by a deranged student. He was king until
1973 when he was overthrown in a bloodless leftist coup led by a cousin. His rule is regarded by many
Afghans as a golden age of tranquillity and stability. But critics say the he did not do much for the
country's development.

       MONEY CHANGING OLD SYSTEM STILL POPULAR IN AFG
KABUL - Though 14 banks are operative in country, but still thousands of people may be seen busy
in currency exchange of million dollars in Shahzada Sarai. Famous for its 50 years history, the centre
has got national and international reputation and Da Afghanistan Bank also confirm currency rate from
this centre. Amin Jan Khosti, a money changer, told Pajhwok Afghan News as due to long wars there
were no arrangements for Banking system, then money changers were the only means for currency
transfer or exchange. He said there were about 300 money changing shops in the centre, about 100 of
these dealers were doing business of money delivery. He said the dealers often do business of $8
million on the daily basis. Mohammad Isa Tarab, deputy head of Da Afghanistan Bank, said they
were giving permission to two types of money changers, the one who could business of delivery but
the other could not do this dealing. He said the dealers who were doing work of money delivery should
deposit 0.1 million afghanis in Afghanistan bank as guarantee.

Khosti, 48, who has worked for 21 years in Shahzada Sarai said large number of people are coming to
the centre for exchanging or delivery of money. He said: "We are doing business through telephone,
fax and e-mail that may be done in minute while banks take much time therefore, people come to us
for dealings." To a question that black money may also be sent through this way, Khosti said: "This is
possible, but we have no information about this, intelligence should know about this." He said they
charged the customer with minor commission and the ratio of fee was depending upon the place where
it might be sent. He said: "We take commission from 0.2 per cent to 2 per cent." Khosti said they were
paying 10,000 afghanis tax to the government.

He said the money changers and officials of the Ministry of Finance according to a guess fix the tax.
According to government rules, the money dealers have been divided into 25 groups, who are paying
from 20,000 afghanis to 0.7 million afghanis keeping in view their income. The people who were
sending money through money changers in the past are still sticking to this old style. Mohammad
Sharif, 50, a resident of Logar said: "Our other villagers also send money through money changers, we
are not used with banking system." Amin Jan Khosti, said a ten-member of police was guarding the
market, but still the money changers did not fell themselves safe out of the Sarai. He said: "We take a
policeman along whenever we have to go out of the Sarai." He said over 20 money changers had been
killed in the last 14 years by unidentified gunmen and over 100 had been looted.



                            BADGHIS AIRPORT RUNWAY REBUILT
Reconstruction of runway of the Qala-e-Naw airport in the western province of Badghis has been
completed at the cost of $1.2 million by the Spanish Provincial Reconstruction Team (PRT). John
Carlo Ciaburro, spokesman for the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) in the western zone,
told Pajhwok Afghan News on Thursday that the airport having 2000-meter long and 25-meter wide
runway could be used for any type of Boeing airbus flights. He added that other facilities as lights,
radar and other equipment will be installed later at the airport. Sayed Zia Wasiqi, spokesman for the
Badghis governor, said that the Afghan Ariana Airline's planes should have to land at the runway
earlier, but bad weather has impeded that till now.

He said that only planes belonging to the ISAF were using the airport for their flights. The Spanish
troops are engaged in reconstruction and security maintenance in Badghis province under ISAF.
Badghis deputy governor said the airport was made in 1968 for the first time which could be used for
small plane it was expanded later to be used for all kinds of flights. Two weeks back, runway of the
Bagram airport in Parwan province was also reconstructed to be used for big military flights. The
3600-meter long and 46-meter wide runway was built at the cost of $68 millions by 400 Afghan
workers in two years.

EAST BAY MAN RUNS PSYCHOLOGY CLINIC IN AFG
Whenever the young man heard a plane screeching by overhead, he would scream so uncontrollably
that everyone in his Afghanistan village grew to despise him. His hysterical outbursts -- fallout from
growing up in a homeland where bombs and bullets had been raining from the sky for decades --
embarrassed his parents so much they dumped him on the streets of nearby Jalalabad. There, in
Afghanistan's most eastern city, the disgraced 21-year-old became a scavenger, eating rotten fruit to
survive. One day, a fruit seller took pity on him and brought him to a psychological clinic in the city.
After a physical, he received counseling and then medication to steady his runaway emotions. Six
months later, he opened his own fruit stand in Jalalabad.

The person instrumental in starting that life-changing clinic lives and works in the East Bay. Kahlil
Rahmany, a clinical psychologist with offices in Concord and Newark, opened the clinic in 2003, after
the Taliban government was thrown out. "The purpose was to reach out to the war-stricken, primarily
women and children," said the former freedom fighter who immigrated to the United States in 1982.
Rahmany, who mostly counsels Afghan immigrants, estimates about 100,000 live in the East Bay.
After witnessing and hearing about the shattered lives in Afghanistan, Rahmany decided he must do
something to help. So far, the clinic has treated nearly 1,000. "People have not only lost their lives and
loved ones and parts of their bodies, they've lost all they've owned," Rahmany said. The clinic steers
clear of religion, politics or cultural issues, concentrating exclusively on psychological matters, he
said. The fruit seller's story, like others told to Rahmany by members of the seven-person clinic,
touched him personally. But the people there need more than healing emotional wounds.

To turn around lives, more jobs and schools must be created, along with the rebuilding of roads and
homes, he said. The resiliency of the long-suffering Afghanistan people continues to inspire him, he
said. These people not only weathered the Taliban, but were battered by wars and watched as their
homes and homeland were desecrated. The clinic, he said, could use added funding to help more
people. Rahmany travels every two years to visit his mother in Pakistan, and hears more harrowing
stories. One he can readily recall concerns a young woman who begged for sleeping pills from the
clinic so she could end her life of abuse. That type of desperation is common, he said. Fortunately, the
woman now sees a better future, he said. Of great concern is the younger generation, especially males
brought up to believe violence solves every problem.

"There's a lot of mistrust in the current generation," he said. "They don't trust each other. Or anyone
else." Young men often live and die by the rule that "if you disagree with me, then you are my
enemy." Years of living in a volatile region where war and violence were the norms shaped that
attitude. "War took away their education," he said. Many of the young men only know about war and
how to kill.

PAKISTAN LIFTS BAN ON AFGHAN TOLO TV
Tolo TV has once again been granted permission to resume broadcasting through Pakistani cable
networks. The Pakistani authorities banned Tolo TV cable broadcasts two months ago. A number of
analysts and the Foreign Ministry spokesman had then described the ban on Tolo TV broadcasts as
against international media laws and the freedom of speech. [Correspondent] The permission for the
resumption of Tolo TV cable broadcasts in Pakistan comes after Pakistani Foreign Minister Khurshid
Mahmud Kasuri visited Kabul three weeks ago. He had then expressed unawareness about the ban but
promised to speak to his country's minister of information about it.

Tolo TV has been broadcasting for over three years. The Pakistani authorities have banned the
channel's cable broadcasts in that country several times. A number of cultural activists and analysts
believe that Tolo TV is a new phenomenon in the Afghan visual media, adding that the channel has
shown remarkable creativity in producing new programmes. They believe that the ban on Tolo is
against international media laws.


 AFGHAN BOY IS BROUGHT TO UNITED STATES FOR SURGERY
                    IN NEW YORK
NEW YORK (AP) _ An 8-year-old boy from Afghanistan stood in Times Square Monday welcoming
a new year that will bring him corrective surgery thanks to the concerns of twin Army doctors who
met him while they worked for six months in his war-ravaged country. "I'm happy. It's the first time
I've seen something like this," Khatibullah Farqirzada said on a morning that also marked his birthday
as he stood in the bright lights of one of the world's most famous landmarks. "In Afghanistan,
everybody celebrates in their homes. Here, everybody comes out to be together," he said.

His father, Shafi, said: "My hope is my son (has) a new year and a new life." Within days, Farqirzada
will undergo surgery to correct hypospadia, a rare condition that prevents him from urinating properly.
The surgery at Westchester Medical Center was arranged after surgeons Vince and Vance Moss, U.S.
Army reservists, met the boy in the village of Paghman while they were in Afghanistan on a relief
mission, working in a small operating room at the Afghan Army National Hospital. While there, they
performed the first stage of urinary constructive surgery on Farqirzada before increasing violence
forced them to evacuate before they could complete the work.

Vance Moss said the 34-year-old doctors, who live in Manhattan and practice in Lakewood, N.J., were
heartbroken to leave early last year and vowed to try to help the boy. The boy's trip to America with
his father was made possible through donations and the Westchester hospital, which offered its
facilities without charge, Vince Moss said. The twin surgeons, who also are donating their services,
will be taking the boy on various outings, including a day at the zoo. Vance Moss said the doctors may
return to Afghanistan to do further work. "We just have a sense of purpose for these young people in
Afghanistan," he said of an area where conditions were so crude that they sometimes operated by
flashlight. "The basics of standard health care are nonexistent. When we were there, we realized how
much there is to do."


   AFG KURASH FEDERATION AWARDED AS THE BEST OF 2006
The International Kurash Association (IKA) has awarded the Afghanistan Kurash federation as the
best of the year 2006, officials said. Sayed Mahmood Zia Dashti, head of the Afghanistan Kurash
Federation (AKF), told Pajhwok Afghan News on Wednesday that the Afghan Kurash athletes
showed great performances during the games held among four Asian countries in Kabul and the
international competition held in Kazakhstan. "We learned through e-mail that the International
Kurash Association has awarded us as the best Kurash federation of the year," he said, adding that the
award was a great achievement for Afghan athletes.

The Afghan Kurash athletes won five gold medals, seven silver and 10 bronze medals during the four-
country competition in Kabul. Besides this, they own one silver and three bronze medals during
international Kurash competitions earlier 2006, said Dashti. Based in Tashkent, IKA had 93 members
and Afghanistan joined it in 2002. Dashti added that Kurash was a traditional Afghan sport played by
Afghans in the northern parts of the country in the past, especially during the new year celebrations.
Originally, Kurash is the native ancient type of upright jacket wrestling practiced in Uzbekistan. It is a
member of Turkish wrestling arts.

Afghanistan Joint Economic Commission meeting. He received by his Afghan counterpart, HE Dr.

cooperation between the two countries. Signing ceremony was followed by a joint press conference by
the two ministers.
The Afghan minister referred to many common grounds between the two nations, which have given
almost a unique character to the two countries’ relations. He thanked Iran’s constructive role in
supporting Afghanistan during the recent years, in particular Iran’s active role since the collapse of the
Taliban regime. Afghan Minister expressed his confidence that questions over Iran’s nuclear program
would not affect Afghanistan, as both Iran and western nations desire to see a peaceful and stable
Afghanistan. On his part, the Iranian Minister, Dr. Mottaki reiterated Iran’s continuing support for the
Afghan government and expressed his wish to see the level of economic and trade transaction between
the two nations to be doubled to reach over one billion US dollar by the third Joint Economic
Commission Meeting.


            SAUDI ARABIA DONATES FURNITURE FOR SCHOOLS
The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has donated chairs and desks worth two million afghanis to schools in
the southeastern Paktia province. Islamuddin Mangal, deputy head of the education department, told
Pajhwok Afghan News the donation consisted of 10,000 chairs and desks. He said it was handed over
to the provincial government by officials of the Saudi embassy in Kabul.

Mangal said the education departed had started distribution of the furniture to various schools in the
province. Only those schools will get the chairs and desks which had proper buildings. Addressing a
gathering organised in this connection, Paktia Governor Rahmatullah Rahmat assured the provincial
government would allocate funds for construction of school buildings. He thanked the Kingdom of
Saudi Arabia for the assistance and said the embassy had promised more aid in the future. Majority of
schools in Paktika and other backward provinces have no buildings and students are either studying
under trees or in tents.


                            CANADIAN FM ARRIVES IN KABUL
