Hypocrites-in-Chiefs

08 May, 2007

By Adnan Gill


Throughout the history almost every religion, every philosopher, every thinker, every historian, and nearly every Wiseman has feverishly abhorred hypocrisy and detested it more often and with more passion than any other behavior.
 
Almost 3,000 years ago, Homer said, "I detest that man, who hides one thing in the depths of his heart, and speaks forth another." Jesus of Nazareth had such an abomination of hypocrisy that he said the hypocrites "have neglected the more important matters of the law-justice, mercy and faithfulness" (Matthew 23:23). Shakespeare also gave some insight into the underpinnings of hypocrisy, "With devotion's visage and pious action we do sugar o'er the devil himself."
 
Ironically, the true hypocrites never think of themselves to be hypocritical; therefore, they say one thing and do another with impunity and especially with pride. The same is also true with today’s global leadership, led by the likes of U.S President George Bush, British Prime Minister Tony Blair, and the Israeli government.
 
We carry such short memories, that it wasn’t even couple of months after the 2006 Israeli invasion of Lebanon, which resulted in the massacre of over 1,200 Lebanese citizens, all was forgotten and forgiven. It was during this instance of, often seen, Israeli barbarism new standards of hypocrisy were set by the self-proclaimed saviors of humanity.
 
  • HYPOCRISY: With the complete blessings and support of the U.S and U.K, all hell was set loose on Lebanon and Palestine by the Israelis, because 3 Israeli soldiers were kidnapped. In reality, the so-called moral leaders have never uttered a word over the countless abductions and targeted assassinations of dozens of democratically elected Lebanese and Palestinian legislators and officials. On August 19, 2006, Israel seized Palestinian Deputy Prime Minister Naser al-Shaer, a top official of the Hamas militant group, at his home in the occupied West Bank. Not a word is wasted over the illegal and immoral incarceration of countless Lebanese and Palestinian civilians still rotting in Israeli dungeons. Not a single word is said over the collective punishment of Lebanese and Palestinian civilians.
  • HYPOCRITE: President Bush showed his real colors when he said, “this nation is at war with Islamic fascists who will use any means to destroy those of us who love freedom.” And with this racially-charged hypocritical outburst he belittled and generalized over 1.4 billion humans or 1/5 of humanity. But his racist comments beg even more questions. Whose ‘freedoms’ was he referring to? Did he mean Israel’s ‘freedom’ to violate international laws by freely embarking on Lebanese/Arab genocides, or it’s ‘freedom’ to legislate racist laws? Or did President Bush mean the ‘freedom’ of neo-con doctrine of pre-emptive attacks on sovereign nations like the one on Iraq, in which, since the U.S occupation 60,000-500,000 Iraqis and close to 3,500 Americans have been killed? The reality is, in 2006, President Bush openly and unapologetically supported the bloodbath of Lebanese and Palestinians, and still turns blind eye to the daily massacres of Iraqi civilians. If there is anyone who deserves to be known as a ‘fascist’, it’s him, his neo-con hawks, his lackeys like Tony Blair, and the Zionist groupies who blame everyone else but themselves for their indiscriminate and unabashed murders of thousands upon thousands of Muslims in Palestine, Lebanon, Iraq and Afghanistan. Remarkably, it took them only less than 5 years to preside over all of these pogroms. The manner in which these saviors of the world are busy maligning Muslims can be directly collated to Adolph Hitler's deliberate vilification of Jews prior to World War II.
  • HYPOCRISY: Israel and Bush Administration arduously justified the destruction of Lebanon and the massacres of its people, under the pretext of, the Lebanese supposedly violated the UN Security Council’s (UNSC) resolution 1559. In reality, the resolution 1559 called upon “all remaining foreign forces [including Israeli] to withdraw from Lebanon.” In a direct violation of the resolution, Israel never vacated the Lebanese territory of Shebaa-Farms. Therefore, it had no legal or moral right to cry foul, especially when it had flagrantly violated 60 other UNSC resolutions relating to Israeli-Lebanese situation alone (see Appendix - A for the complete list). Hypocrites need to be cognizant of the fact that Israel violated UNSC resolution 425 (1978) for twenty two years. The resolution called upon the “Israel immediately to cease its military action against Lebanese territorial integrity and withdraw forthwith its forces from all Lebanese territory”. In an appearance on CNN’s ‘Paula Zahn Now’, the Lebanese consul general to the U.S Mohamad El-Harake shared his frustrations with the American hypocritical support of Israel at the UN Security Council. He said, “Let me tell you one thing before we finish. Israel took 22 years to implement Resolution 524, adopted in '78, to inviting Israel to withdraw its forces from Lebanon. Israel couldn't wait for 1559 adopted on the 2nd of September, less than two years, giving us the possibility of implementing this among ourselves as Lebanese. This is the way Israel wants to see a strong Lebanon?” Hypocrites need to be cognizant of the fact that Israel violated UNSC resolution 425 (1978) for twenty two years. The resolution called upon the “Israel immediately to cease its military action against Lebanese territorial integrity and withdraw forthwith its forces from all Lebanese territory”. In an appearance on CNN’s ‘Paula Zahn Now’, the Lebanese consul general to the U.S Mohamad El-Harake shared his frustrations with the American hypocritical support of Israel at the UN Security Council. He said, “Let me tell you one thing before we finish. Israel took 22 years to implement Resolution 524, adopted in '78, to inviting Israel to withdraw its forces from Lebanon. Israel couldn't wait for 1559 adopted on the 2nd of September, less than two years, giving us the possibility of implementing this among ourselves as Lebanese. This is the way Israel wants to see a strong Lebanon?”
  • HYPOCRITES: Some of Evangelical Christians shamelessly support Israel in its brutality because they believe, for the biblical prophecies (The Book of Ezekiel, Chapter 38) to come true and to prepare for the Second Coming of Jesus, Israel will have to annihilate its Arab neighbors. A 2003 Pew Research Centre poll found that 36 percent of Americans believe that the creation of the state of Israel was a step towards the Second Coming of Jesus and that Israel must be supported if this was to come true. In reality, what these religious zealots fail to mention is that the same prophetic literature prophesies a dim ending for the Jews, who will be either converted or killed off in Armageddon.
  • HYPOCRITES: American Zionists proudly send their children to Israel to get military training and to kill Arabs. American-media gives a flattering treatment to the American Zionists who join the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) to fight the Arabs. They are revered as brave heroes. In reality, most of these heroes live in America, but they enlist only with the Israeli military. Not so surprisingly, the same media stereotypes the American Muslims as anti-American, even if they dare to participate in the humanitarian relief efforts for Lebanese and Palestinian civilians.
  • HYPOCRITES: During the 2006 Israeli invasion of Lebanon, on hourly bases, the vigilant American-media gave the latest count of Katyushas fired on Israel. In reality, Israel rained hundred times more weapons on Lebanon. The American-media never counted the Israeli cluster bombs, missiles, motors, rockets, and shells dropped by the Israelis on the hapless Lebanese civilians.
  • HYPOCRITES: The American and Jewish (Amerco-Jewish) news media eulogized and deciphered each shrapnel, every ball bearing, and every patch of grass of Israeli manicured lawns burned by the Hezbollah rockets. In reality, whenever a non-American or non-Israel media outlet showed pictorial proof of the Israeli brutality or Lebanese carnage, the Amerco-Jewish media hypocritically cried bloody-Marie and blamed the non-Amerco-Jewish media for inciting hatred against Israelis and instantly labeled them as anti-Semite.
  • HYPOCRITES: Amerco-Jewish news media claims to be fair and balanced. In reality, 90 percent of times, they ever so shamelessly, broadcasted a parade of ultra-Jewish diplomats who expectedly squarely blamed the Lebanese civilians for becoming victims of Israeli weapons. After the infamous 1982 massacres of Sabra and Shatila, the Jewish lobbies setup permanent institutional structures to sanitize its tarnished image and to win world opinion. Israel launched Hasbara project to win the U.S public opinion and trained its diplomats in public relations and communications. To cover-up its outed dirty secrets, Israel hired the largest U.S PR firms like NYPR to court favorable American public opinion. The Jewish propaganda machine put together groups and organizations with catchy names to marshal American support for the Israeli fascist policies. Americans for safe Israel, Christian coalition, Christian Broadcasting Network, American Jewish Congress, Christian Friends of Israel, Jews for Jesus, and AIPAC (American Israeli Public Affairs Committee, the most powerful foreign lobby) are the most active organizations that remain busy with cloaking Israeli dirty deeds with an image of a pristine nation obsessed with humanitarian works. Then there are organizations like CAMERA (Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America). CAMERA, through its persistent harassment of journalists, ensures that media coverage remains pro-Israel.
  • HYPOCRISY: Israel and American government place themselves at the highest pedestal of morality and for the respect of law. In realty, the Human Rights Watch said the responsibility for the massacre in Qana rested "squarely with the Israeli military." Whenever Israelis killed the UN personnel, Red-Cross workers, or Lebanese civilians; the Israelis, Bush Administration, and the American-media nonchalantly dismissed the deliberate killings as accidents; even better, they blamed the Lebanese for bringing Israeli wrath upon themselves.
  • HYPOCRISY: Despite displacing 1 million and massacring over 1,200 Lebanese civilians during the first month of Israeli savage attack, it’s the Israelis that were portrayed as the victim by the Israelis, Bush Administration and the American-media. In reality, during the fighting 116 Israeli soldiers and only 43 Israeli civilians were killed. Israel massacred close to 28 Lebanese civilians for each Israeli civilian lost.
  • HYPOCRITE: In his comments, on July 31, 2006, President Bush said he wanted more than a ceasefire. "We want there to be a long-lasting peace, one that is sustainable." The reality is President Bush has blood of over 1,200 Palestinians and Lebanese on his hands. The Bush administration has ridiculed and stalled every peace effort, including Security Council ceasefire resolutions that could have saved innocent lives of hundreds of Lebanese civilians. If that wasn’t bad enough, his administration donated $210 million worth of aviation fuel to ensure that Israeli F-16s do not skip a beat in dropping bombs on Lebanese population, and expedited the supply of precision-guided bunker buster bombs for Israel to hasten the Lebanese holocaust. One such Made-in-America precision-guided bomb dropped from an Israeli F-16 massacred 54 Lebanese civilians in Qana, of which half were blossoming children.
  • HYPOCRISY: Israel claimed it warned the Lebanese civilians beforehand to leave. In reality, before sending out the warning, Israelis also ensured every route leading out of Southern Lebanon laid in ruins. They also made sure that every escaping vehicle, every civilian convoy flying white flags, every UN personnel carrier escorting the civilians, and every Red-Cross ambulance rescuing the civilians from the Israeli murderous campaign didn’t escape intact. Kenneth Roth, executive director of Human Rights Watch said, "Just because the Israeli military warned the civilians… to leave does not give it carte blanche to blindly attack." Israeli fire was also directly responsible for the cold-blooded murders of 257 UN personnel.
  • HYPOCRITES: American politicians and Media diligently harp on Israel being the most reliable ally and partner. In reality, the partnership had been largely one way, in favor of Israel. To date, Israel has received well over $110 billion FREE dollars in military and economic assistance from Washington.
  • HYPOCRITES: American politicians and Media proudly call Israel to be its closest ally. In reality, Israelis have never shied away from shedding American blood whenever it suited them. On June 8, 1967, while patrolling in international waters in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea, without any warning or justification, for several hours, the USS Liberty (AGTR-5) was savagely attacked by Israeli air and naval forces. The Americans suffered 34 fatalities and 173 were wounded. To this day, not a single Israeli has been court marshaled or punished for deliberately slaughtering Americans.
  • HYPOCRITES: Israel and the U.S complain to no end that Hezbollah is armed by Iran and Syria. In reality, Israel has received 17 billion dollars of arms from the United States in last 10 years alone. In 2002, U.S gave $6 billion free aid to Israel. $2 billion were for Israel to buy American made weapons. $1.5 billion for military ventures to subsidize Israeli domestic armament industry. This amount doesn’t include other forms of military aid, such as free weapons and fuel for IDF.
  • HYPOCRITES: Pro-Israeli media repeatedly flashed Israeli propaganda videos showing infrared videos of firings of the so-called Hezbollah rockets as the Israeli spokespeople hammered their propaganda. In reality, the pro-Israeli media consistently failed to provide a neutral and reliable confirmation to support the Israeli propaganda. Experts familiar with Israeli tactics believed the alleged videos of Hezbollah rocket launches were the Oscar-Award winning self-engineered videos of the Israeli psych-ops (an Israeli military unit tasked to control and dominate the dissemination of information in favor of Israel, even through deceit and lies).
  • HYPOCRISY: The UN bullied by the U.S conveniently found time during the Israeli invasion to pass a Security Council resolution to threaten Iran with sanctions. In reality, the UN couldn’t muster enough courage to even request Israel to temporarily halt Lebanese genocide, so the Lebanese could have buried the rotting bodies of their loved ones.
  • HYPOCRITES: Israel and the U.S call Hezbollah a terrorist organization. In reality, survey after survey show that most of the world views Israel to be a terrorist state. With the exceptions of the U.S, Israel and their lackeys the Britain, no one else calls Hezbollah a terrorist organization, not even the UN or EU does.
  • HYPOCRITES: Israel argues, since Hezbollah emerged from and flourishes with the help Southern Lebanese population, therefore, everyone from that area should be considered and dealt as a combatant. In reality, almost every able Israeli adult either serves or has served, or is a reservist in the Israeli military. Therefore, by Israelis’ logic, every Israeli adult associated with the IDF should also be treated as legitimate combatant.
  • HYPOCRISY: Israeli government arms the Jewish settlers in occupied settlements with automatic guns and grenades for the supposed self-defense. In reality, the Jewish settlers mount vigilante attacks on the unarmed Palestinians. They destroy crops, uproot trees, and burn the homes of Palestinians who happened to be living there for last hundreds of years.
  • HYPOCRITE: The U.S presents itself as a fair and honest broker. In reality, between 1973 and 2001, the U.S used veto 33 times at the UN Security Council to sabotage Israel-specific resolutions. In addition, since the 1967 Six-Day Arab-Israeli war, the U.S has exercised its veto at the Security Council more than 90 times in support of Israel, rendering the UN totally impotent.
  • HYPOCRITES: Bush and his poodle Blair never get tired lecturing the whole world on the virtues of democracy. In reality, they demand the Lebanese and Palestinians to exercise their democratic rights by electing only the candidates desired by the Tel-Aviv and Washington. Since the democratically elected Lebanese and Palestinian governments are not run by the puppets of Tel-Aviv and Washington, monetary aid for public (including humanitarian) projects for the Palestinians was cut off, and Israel clamped a virtual blockade of Gaza and Lebanon. The consul general Mohamad El-Harake summarized the Israeli strategy very well to CNN’s Paula Zahn. He said, “It is with Israel always a catch-22 situation. Either you kill each other as Lebanese, or I [will] come to kill you all.”
  • HYPOCRITES: For several decades the British and Americans boycotted South Africa for its apartheid practices. In reality, neither the U.K, nor U.S ever utter a peep over illegal Israeli-occupation of Palestinian and Lebanese land, ethnic cleansing, and cold-blooded murders of Lebanese and Palestinians. Ironically, they declare the starvation of the Lebanese and Palestinians at the hands of Israelis as fair and legitimate.
  • HYPOCRISY: The U.S allows the private sector to take high-resolution satellite pictures of its own military and nuclear installations. In reality, American laws bar everyone from taking satellite pictures of Israeli military and nuclear installations.
  • HYPOCRITES: Upon the whims of Israel, Al-Minar, a Hezbollah T.V channel was banned in the U.S, Europe and India for allegedly spreading its propaganda. In reality, nobody says a word over the specially trained Israeli diplomats in public relations and communications -- like Alon Pinkas (a coordinator of PR efforts and the Israeli Counsel-General in New York) -- regularly winning and dinning with the America reporters and editors to disseminate the Israeli propaganda.
  • HYPOCRITES: If anyone, even justifiably, dares to question or oppose the Zionist mantra or their behavior he/she is instantly labeled as “anti-Semite”. In reality, Zionists call every non-Jew a “Gentile”. Those who maybe unaware of the meaning, Gentile means, Heathen, Pagan, or Uncivilized. Social stigmatism/assassination through labeling is the most commonly employed tactic by the Zionists to intimidate and harass their perceived foes.
  • HYPOCRITES: West never allows the whole world, especially the Germans, to forget the holocaust. In reality, for the last 60 years when it comes to Israel the West remains blind to making the 5 million Palestinians pay reparations for the holocaust.
 
It would be equally hypocritical to generalize every American and British and their whole media as biased in favor of Israel. U.S Congressman John Martha and the British Member of Parliament George Galloway are shinning examples of fair-minded politicians. Refreshingly, some of British news media, like ‘The Independent,’ provides unbiased coverage; occasionally, American media also exhibit glimpses of unbiased opinion. For example, August 1, 2006, in a ‘Los Angeles Times’’ Op-Ed, Adam Shatz pointed to the Israeli hypocritical humanitarian concerns, he wrote, “When Israel targets densely populated areas in hopes of killing one or a handful of militants, knowing that it may end up killing dozens of civilians, it can hardly claim to be showing concern for humanitarian law or civilian life. And by asking that we judge it by its professed intentions, rather than by its actions, Israel is asking too much of us and far too little of itself.”
 
Host of political satire John Stewart and the anchor of ABC World News Charles Gibson are also notable exceptions and pleasant examples of honorable and unbiased American journalists. 
 
Maybe Andr Gide had Ehud Olmert and President Bush -- certainly not Tony Blair who merely loves to sit in Bush’s lap and wag his tail -- in mind when he observed, "The true hypocrite is the one who ceases to perceive his deception, the one who lies with sincerity." Ehud Olmert flattened Lebanon under the pretext of self-defense, and President Bush flattened Afghanistan, Iraq and then helped Ehud Olmert flatten Lebanon under the pretext of self-defense and fighting terrorism. Who will fight the terror of these hypocrites?

Z_Billo, Pakistan - 08 May, 2007

This article, written by a person sitting in the comforts of the US, sheding tears about the cause of Pakistan and Palestine, smacks of the ultimate hypocricy.

Neel, Pakistan - 10 May, 2007

Unholy marriage between Pakistani socialists and the Mullahs

The writer is obviously a slave of socialist fringe of the West. Sane Pakistanis would not touch with a 10 feet pole the lunatics like Galloway.

If Galloway and Murtha are the knights in shining armor for you, socialism won’t be successful in the next 100 years.

On the other hand if Islam and Muslims were the true focus, then why would Mr. Gill not see things closer to home? Why are the Pakistani-Shias being gunned down without impunity all the way from Parachinar, to DI Khan, to Karachi?

Off course socialists like Mr. Gill will ignore everything right here in Pakistan and jump all the way to the far reaches of muddy Middle East. Why? Just for one purpose! Surely to collect as many piles of feces and dirt as much possible. After all that is the job of socialists anyway.

Pakistani lefties refuse the see the light. For the longest time, these socialists were at the receiving end of Mullahtic wrath. After the fall of Commies, Mullahs don't get $$$ anymore. These jobless Mullahs are now being harnessed by socialists of every hue and color.

In Pakistan, this unholy marriage between lefties and Mullahs quickly shows up as mad anti-Semitism. So far European socialists are not getting hit by the same madness and that pretty much leaves Pakistani lefties in the lurch.

These same lefties can bring about all sorts of dictionaries and definitions. However a terrorist remains a terrorist. And it sounds mighty funny when terrorists and their sympathizers try to redefine the language and politics.


Dr. Qazi (DrShaheenIqbalQazi@yahoo.com), United Kingdom - 10 May, 2007

Hypocrisy

It is fair for people to say, "Adnan, instead of blasting the Americans and the Israelis, look at your own back yard first. Hypocrites of the likes of the famous General Musharraf also deserve a few lines and also Dr. Gills Mullahs, who go on about all the Sunnahs of our beloved Prophet but deny themselves by not practicing the advice to keep one third of the stomach empty while eating."

But what also deeply saddens me on this forum is that instead of commenting on the article itself, the trusths, the references, the opinions. some very regular readers start blasting the author instead of rebutting his nalysis which would be what a rational and educated person would do.

It is totally wrong and unfair to e.g. "catch two names like Galloway, make a point on Galloway which is totally unsupported by any proofs or logic or explanation and ignore the rest of the articled which was obviously compiled with some effort."

Cheers

Ahmed Sajjad, Pakistan - 10 May, 2007

Thanks Adnan Gil

This is an intelligently written article and reflects the facts.

As expected, thae disguised Qazi was the first to rush with his bullets fired as first shots.This disguised Qazi was even priding over the American neo-cons playing happy golf games over the bloody death of million muslims killed in Iraq and elsewhere over the wrath of some crazed and which this disguised Qazi feels happy about. I wonder he realizes now about the readers in Pak Tribune thinking about truth of his real identity.My be he will be joining those golf games as what he really may be and have laughter about the spilled muslim blood over a couple of higly intoxicating drinks in the company of those murderers.

Mr Adnan is right in picking priority.A few hundred unfortunate deaths of Shia Suni fasad caused by those loved by Qazi can be deplored.But Adnan is talking of million dead and prided upon by mass murderers and then praised by the disguised Qazi, who may even join in the celebrations of million muslims killed in middle east by the scoundrels.

Peace lovers of Pakistan and the world will have their hearts of sympathy for those killed by the bellicose belligerant criminals.And as expected, there is rightly condemnation of the disguised Qazi as well.

THANKS ADNAN GIL FOR THIS TRUTHFUL ARTICLE.

PEACE TO MANKIND.


Anwar Mahmood, Canada - 10 May, 2007

Fellow American

Dr. Qazi,

I just wanted to write a quick note to thank you for your eloquent comments in regard to Mr. Adnan Gill's article.

I am proud to call you a fellow American...









Ayasha, United Kingdom - 10 May, 2007

Hypocricy is western value.

Western values are many some open and some hidden.Open is to brag about fairness,justice and honesty and human rights and repect for other countries.But reality is just opposite.West knows it can survive without hypocricy.Ask those who liev in west.Or Dr.Qazi who is actually some John Smith but uses this cover name.,and he has gall to criticise the article.

ABdus Sammad, Pakistan - 10 May, 2007

Talkings

Actually one should not remain weak in this world. If one remains weaker and is often beaten and offended by others then there are many a proofs to define or explain that. If you are in any way or other weaker and unable to defend your rights then be ready to be beaten up or tortured. Then never cry of blamings but that is actually your own weakness to be weak. If you are a coward and obliged to others then you possess the right to be tortured, teased and killed.

Mohammad Ilyas, Pakistan - 11 May, 2007

Hypocrisy of Palestinians’ supporters: They cannot see both sides of the picture

Hypocrisy of Palestinians’ supporters: They cannot see both sides of the picture
====================================
Mr. Ahmad Sajjad, blasting Mr. Gill's myopic analysis is really easy for any fair-minded analyst.

He went to great lengths cutting and pasting stuff that only goes against Israelis.

Palestinians were never angels either. There are many resolutions out there asking Palestinians to obey the law and avoid terrorism.

Only hypocrites would ignore UN Security Council Resolution 1397 (12 March 2002). This resolution included the ones from the past i.e. resolutions 242 (1967) and 338 (1973).

Every resolution asks Palestinians to respect Israel's borders. Until very recently PLO continued violating these resolutions. It was only after the demise of Commies, that Yasser Arafat changed his qibla as he lost commie sources of income.

Unfortunately, PLO was quickly replaced by Hamas. And guess what? Hamas does not accept Israeli borders.

So the world is back to square one circa 1948. Palestinians in the past 70 odd years have refused to accept Israel.

But Mr. Gill would have all of us duped into believing that Israel is the only party responsible for the muddy Middle East.

Just like you need two hands to clap, you also need to see both sides of UNSC resolutions.

Unfortunately following the limited intellect of Palestinian leadership, Mr. Gill would not be able to see the two sides.

How very sad!

Dr. Qazi (DrShaheenIqbalQazi@yahoo.com), United Kingdom - 11 May, 2007

Funny

Maybe im a poor reader but I dont see many critiques rebuffing the points made by the author.

I totally agree with Mr. Mohammad Ilyas when he talks about weakness. Its the law of the jungle, the strong always has his way, whether that strong is "MUFASA" or "SCAR" (Lion King Characters) depends upon the luck of those being ruled.

Even though much of this article was about the Lebanon Invasion and since no one has talked more about that I take it everybody knows the bases behind the points raised by the author, even if they do not endorse it.

Going to Palestine, I totally agree that it is the Palestinians who are at fault. If someone stronger, more intelligent and with more suport from say another entity barges into my home, then it is my fault that I am too weak to defend myself. It is the palestininas fault that have been too weak, they have been so busy fighting amongst themselves, they cant initiate anything. The only time they do anything is when some Israeli operation or bombing or shooting kills someone of their family, they instead of gathering support, go on their own in the shape of a suicide bomb, how pathetic.

I marvel at the amount of research publications and innovations and inventions and Nobel prizes that Israeli People produce, and it would be a great loss to the world if it is deprived of that knowledge.

And this is why the Israeli borders need to stay intact, no, this is why the Israeli borders need to stay in existence and keep expanding and expanding and killing and killing and bombing and bombing and maiming and maiming all around them into subjecting people into humiliation and despair. Israelis are strong, the palestinians and the Muslim world are not. This world is not a place for the weak, the weak die, it is the law of natural selection.








Ahmed Sajjad, Pakistan - 11 May, 2007

In todays wars the govts stress a lot of psychological warfare a polite word for propaganda, a cover up term for "Lies,Lies,Lies".This guy Qazi seems to be well trained in it.He and Ayasha(from USA) leave nothing unused in their hatred against Islam,muslims or in reality truth and justice.Even Pakistan army's officers are going to USA for this training of psychological war,"speak lie with such frequency that every one starts belieiving it".West has distorted everything with this technique history and even religion.And yet they want to lead the world.Tragically they forget that eventually truth surfaces and the disgrace is the fate of liers.

Anwar Saeed, Pakistan - 11 May, 2007

Dr.Qazi cut down the dose of narcotics that you are on.

Dr.Qazi what are you talking about.Israel is the only country in the world that has no defined border.Yes it is the only country in the world that haa inscribed on the parliament building."O Israel your borders are up to EUphrates(River in Iraq) to Nile (River going in Egypt)Imagine if this was inscribed in any muslim country.Yes the same west whom you praise day and nite because you are an American using a disgused name of Dr.Qazi,has created all the war triggers like an Island between Iraq and Iran and Kashmir,for which British had accepted to created Pakistan.All these war triggers have caused human blood to be shed continously but you being an American care more about the blood of an animal than of a non white human.

Akbar Ali, Pakistan - 11 May, 2007

Palestinians

It was the time before our Holy Prophet Mohammad(SLM) in history that Israelis were muslims and Palestinians used to oppose the prophets of God but after that Palestinians became Muslims and Israelis remained non-believers. But one thing to be kept in mind that that mentality of Palestinians did not change or less affected that exists in their origin. They are a rigid and irresponsible folk. You can not trust them as a nation for any bigger responsibility. Even if the land is freed from occupation that can be handed over to Syria but not to Palestinians as they will trouble others and not even among themselves be in good terms. Also they lack Islamic values and morality. They lack discipline and honour and keeping words as have been throughout history so their land can be merged or given in political governance of Syria.

Aqsa Mir, Pakistan - 12 May, 2007

Anwar, Qazi and Ayasha are one and the same person. He works for the Indian Embassy in the US. He has admitted that he uses several identities because people often blocked his e-mails. He is a habitual Pakistan basher.

Adnan keep up doing the good work. Keep on exposing these hypocrites and their peons like Qazi and Ayasha.


Ravi, Hungary - 12 May, 2007

Ravi, do not mix it up

Ravi, do not mix Anwar up with the other two as several dozens of my letters speak the opposite.

I do not hide my identity and my writings speak the honest truth.

I am a Canadian citizen of Pakistani origin. I have my own engineering company Stag Enterprises Ltd listed with Alberta province government.

My e-mail address is with Canada's most reputed internet and TV channel company named,"Shaw Cable and TV and net work."My address even represents the first letter of my name and is as:

a.stag@shaw.ca

And I have whole bunch of patriotic relatives in Pakistan like me.

I hope you read dozens of my letters and they all speak for the truth.

Anwar Mahmood, Canada - 14 May, 2007

The identity of a writer,Dr.Qazi.

So called Dr.Qazi may still not be what Ravi(India) says,analysing his letters,because he praised Ayyub and army who have given wounds to India as well(besides giving to Pakistani nation).And if an Indian defends Pakistan Army then there is a serious problem at hand of Pakistani nation.Not much surprising though as events are changing.
Is he/she then an Israeli,because he gets offended when someone indirectly even criticises Zionism.Present coward-in- chief has leaned so much towards Israel that even late Ariel Sharon Israeli PM said on American TV with Collin Powel that before going to bed he prays for the safety and security of Musharraf.That again should ring the bells of concern.,but to stay in power politicians do anything and the biggest political party in Pakistan is,Pakistan Army.
Most probably He/she and AYA-SHA at least thats how she spells her name(SUch a beutiful name and wrong spelling)could very well be American employees in Pakistan embassy(because psycholigcal war is being waged.President Bush said "We fought against Communism and defeated it,now we are fighting another ideology,a totalitarian ideology Islam and we will defeat it,this is a different war it will be invisible,and on all fronts,including academic,psychological etcetc).There are think tanks working overtime to find ways to defame,malign Islam,to wage war within Islam,(i.e.Shia SUnni,Iraq,IRan,Pakistan vs Afghanistan,SOmalia vs Ethiopia.)But Pakistani people should analyse everything,including letters and try to see who is behind them.

Dr.M.KhanMD, United Kingdom - 14 May, 2007

They hate us(USA) because of our hypocricy

Adnan,
I receieved newsbulletin from Information clearing house.(Any one can subscribe to it,just see www.informationclearinghouse.info.)A good article by Eugene Robinson just says that "They hate us because of our hypcricy".Those who disagree with your assessment need to read this article.Knowledge never hurts,it never hurted any one before.


Dr.Khan, United Kingdom - 15 May, 2007

Hurdles to true Democracy.

The new born plant of democra
cy was stopped to grow natur
ally,when General Ayub Khan was made Defence Minister.Sin
ce then the power greedy army
generals and its Agencies are busy to make democracy a
forbidden tree for the people
of pakistan.Since 1954,we are
being abused by bloody,stupid
and corrupt civilians.Since then unlawful rule of militar
ary dictators are not allowin
ing people to run its democra
tic civilian government.Since
1954,the game of removing experienced political leaders
from the scene is continued.
The present military dictator
General Pervez Musharaf did not spare even the heros of the nation Dr,Qadeer Khan,
people,s Judge Mr.Iftikhar Chauhdry.Army political Gener
als,has made sick the nation ecnomically,democratically,ideologically and even psycholo
gically.Islamic extremisim is a great sickness and it was invented by pakistani military Generlas and its agencies.The sins of political Generals are more great than their deaths.
