Muhajeddin - Taleban

When Russia invaded Afghanistan in support of its puppet government in the late 1970s, the west, especially the US, supported the Muhajeddin Islamic freedom fighters.

Eventually the Russians gave up and withdrew. Then came the attack on the twin towers and the War on Terror, with an invasion of Afghanistan, with the aim of wiping out Al Quaida.

Then came the rise of the Taleban fundamentalists who took over most of Afghanistan and have never been driven out entirely. It is expected that the fight against them will have go continue into the indefinite future.

What I would like to know is what is the difference between the Muhajeddin and the Taleban?
