Group is funded by donations in mosques and Muslim community centres around the country.
We are not like a government, we depend on individuals, a Taliban commander told Sky News. We get donations from our Muslim brothers in Britain for jihad and they help us. It is the duty of all Muslims to pay towards fighting a jihad. And this is how we get our money and buy our weapons and carry on fighting.
The commander added that an attack on Britain and Europe could happen at any time.
However, in what was seen as a blow to the insurgents, Afghan and American official have been holding secret talks with the second ranking figure in the Taliban in the firmest indication yet that substantive peace talks have begun.
The Daily Telegraph has learned that Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar was released from Pakistani custody
Baradar was the Taliban's overall military commander until he was arrested in Karachi last February by Pakistani security forces.
Mullah Omar, the Taliban leader, opposes any dialogue until the International Security Assistance Force (Isaf) withdraws from Afghanistan, but Baradar was seen to be open to talks that may have excluded the hard-liners.
Baradar and three senior lieutenants travelled to Afghanistan under Nato guard for the talks. "Baradar isn't acting on our behalf but our understanding is that he is meeting with people in his organisation to build a consensus that will let the Taliban come to the dialogue table," an Afghan official said.
Gen David Petraeus, the commander of Nato forces in Afghanistan, disclosed that Taliban figures had been granted safe passage to talks in Afghanistan.

Greatest source of donations = England
Proable target = England
Obviously, logic is NOT their strong suit. At some point, I would think that somewhere, somehow, somebody is going to say “ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!”
At that point, the worshipers of the goat-humping pedophile will get that crusade they so urgently want. Caution: Be careful what you wish for; you might just get it.

Good deal, the Brits feed them and house them so they have plenty to spend on jihad!
I no longer will talk to the bastids.
A mosque, any mosque anywhere, is a very dangerous place in any free society.
islam is at war with the West (Dar al-Hab), particularly in the West´s politically correct blindness to that fact.
British welfare is subsidizing the death of their soliders, and soon, more of their subjects.
Western culture is committing suicide.
It certainly is.
