The US; A Terrorist State and Sponsor of Terrorism?

Eric Holder Justifies Murder by Presidential Decree.
 
A terrorist state is one that acts in a way to strike fear in the hearts of civilian populations in order to promote its own agenda. Thus, while the US freely condemns states like Iran, North Korea, Syria and Gadhafi’s Libya, our own allies such as Israel, Bahrain, Russia, Philippines and others, also fit the description of being a terrorist state.
Of course, if one dares to be so “unpatriotic” as to examine the actions of the United States, we too, fall comfortably within this category. Our so-called “sanctions” that are designed to inflict sever deprivations on civilian populations with the goal of “regime change” are nothing less than terrorism.
 
A state that sponsors terrorism, is one that supports acts of terrorism perpetrated by clients and proxies. Unfortunately, the US falls smack-dab in the middle of this description as well! Consider our support for Israel’s activities against the Palestinians, the fact that we are funding ($400 million in 2010 budget) and materially supporting the MEK (listed as a terrorist org by the State Dept.) in Iran to conduct attacks on Iranian installations and civilians.
 
We continue to move from bad to worse; just when we start thinking the US could not POSSIBLY get any lower in moral standing, it does. Continue reading

I wish I were fighting for Pakistan rather than the US…

I wish I were fighting for Pakistan rather than for the US and I would like my son to be fighting and killing for Pakistan in the Pakistan Army“.
 
I can already see at least one hysterically paranoid person getting ready to string me up from the nearest lamp-post and a Hell of a lot of other REAL Americans getting mad at me. I can also see a lot of very sincere Americans…reasonable people all, wondering if I have taken leave of my senses and then, wondering what I am doing in the US.
 
Let’s add the the mix….
 
What if I then contributed $1000 to Jay Inslee or his opponent-to-be, Rob McKenna. Any bets that my money would be thrown back at me faster than a red-hot brick? they would also condemn my stand and tell me unequivocally, that I should leave this country if my heart and loyalties are so passionately with the country of my birth, Pakistan.
At the same time, I would be pilloried for being an untrustworthy “Muzlem” and I would be used to point out how Muslims are here to undermine this, so free, land of “Judeo-Christian values”. Continue reading

Maybe I am just imagining that the US is targeting Muslims…

Or, why Muslims need to wake up…

A lot of people have told me to “tone it down”,  not sound so “anti-American” and asked me why I hate America so much that I keep criticizing it and if I do hate America so much, why don’t I “go back where I came from”? I have even been accused of supporting and inciting terrorism (but when I consider the source and intelligence of those criticisms, I suppose I shouldn’t mind too much).

Fair enough.

Maybe I AM imagining that the US is geared up to target Muslims and maybe things are not so bad after all.

The again, maybe the Tooth Fairy is leaving gold coins in exchange for teeth these days too.

Let us look objectively and see where the results take us, shall we? Continue reading

Congress Okay’s Indefinite Military “Detention” of Muslims

So, who’s going to vote against the Holy Grail of Defense Appropriations, especially to protect “Muzlems“?
 
“Defense” has become such an ultra-patriotic issue that nobody dares speak against “Defense” and all sorts of evil is justified behind the screen of “Defense”. Our idiotic “War!”s have morphed into a “Defense” issue where being against the Iraq “War!” and the Afghan “War!” means we are weak on “Defense” and we are against “our boys” who are out there sacrificing their lives to protect us. Nobody dares ask how this protection became necessary or why and why opposing the idiot “War!”s means we hate “our boys in uniform”.
 
“Defense” has become a racket where millionaire have become billionaires but the appetites are not yet sated.
 
It is this atmosphere that the latest Defense Appropriations bills came up in the House and in the Senate. I suppose it is fine that they did, after all, once we are in a “War!”, there is little choice but to continue funding the “Defense” forces. This is where “earmarks” slither into the picture. These are supposedly “minor” attachments to the larger bill such that in order to vote against the earmark, one has to vote against the entire bill. In matters of important bills, it is very difficult for a Senator or a Representative to vote against an entire bill, just to take a stand against an earmark.
This must have been the line of thinking when they inserted provisions in the Defense Appropriations Bills (H.R. 1540 and S. 1967), provisions that could almost be overlooked unless one were reading the bill (which most Congress members don’t); sections 1031 and 1032 allow the Administration to imprison (“Detain”) people indefinitely.

America, where only citizens are human?

PLEASE call your Senators and your House Representatives and TELL them to oppose the entire Defense Authorization Bill until the bigots remove the sections that permit the military to indefinitely hold ANYONE, without charges, without civilian trial.
 
Some people make things happen…some people talk about things that happened…some people wonder what happened.
Which one are you? Continue reading

Action! America’s March Towards Nazism?

Mission Creep: Start with a plan to do something and before you know it, the mission has ballooned to include all sorts of other things.

These days, Muslims are being persecuted to greater and greater degree, in many cases, harkening back to the “good old days” of the Hitlerian Final Solution, which is an example of another Mission Creep (See Action plan at the end). Continue reading

If Muslims did what others do…

I published a story, “Detroit Muslims force women to sit in the back of buses” a few days ago, it was not correct, I had in fact, changed a few words that then affected the perspective of the story in a different manner. The actual headline was: “At Front of Brooklyn Bus, a Clash of Religious and Women’s Rights” from a New York Times story and it was about the use of a private, but publicly-funded busline for the Orthodox Jewish Community of Brooklyn.

My motivations for sending out the changed story were to find out how people (Muslims and non-Muslims) would react to Muslims doing such a thing and how differently this story would be viewed BECAUSE Muslims were thought to be doing such a thing in this land of “Freedom and Democracy”. My point was Continue reading

Murder of Anwar Al-Awlaki; Slaughter of the Constitution

President Barak Obama grandly announced that a CIA drone attack had killed Anwar Al-Awlaki in Yemen along with Samir Khan, the editor of his website. “This is further proof that al Qaeda and its affiliates will have no safe haven anywhere in the world,” Obama said. The Press dutifully reported the announcement, some joined in the celebrations of having gotten another terrorist but nobody questioned the methodology that resulted in ending not one, but TWO American citizens’ lives.

Who cares? We got another one! Someone should care, certainly I do.

They were murdered. Continue reading

Is Pakistan the problem?

Out-going Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Admiral Mike Mullen accused Pakistan  of not only aiding terrorism against the US, but of fomenting it by supporting and directing the militant Haqqani network. By the way, the Haqqanis are located among the semi-autonomous, Federally-Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) and are a US-manufactured group dating back to the days of our war against the Soviet Union in Afghanistan. Not to be out-done, calls are coming from Congress to take military action against Pakistanand to send US troops within Pakistan to resolve the “Haqqani problem”; it is, after all, time for elections.

While such strong statements may pander well to the American public, they do nothing to help ease the increasingly worsening situation in the “Af-Pak” region in fact, such speeches only underscore the dismal state of understanding of the problems in that region. America defines problems exclusively as they relate to itself and attempts to define the origins and broader impacts of the underlying issues, are regarded as treason. Continue reading
