Pakistan: Jihadists uniting to take over Islamabad
“The day is not far when Islamabad will be in the hands of the mujahideen.” And then what? Will Obama offer them still more money?

Pakistan insists on receiving “unconditional support” from U.S.
Its top officials are “irked” that the billions Obama has pledged in aid actually have strings attached — probably conditions such as “this money is not to be given to the Taliban or al-Qaeda,” and other unreasonable demands. To further protest, Pakistan’s ISI agency, which isÂ well linked to jihadis and terrorists, hasÂ refused to meet with American officialsÂ (they are “offended” at the implication).

Concessions to jihadists only result in demands for more concessions. Obama will probably be learning this lesson, or be given an opportunity to learn this lesson, soon enough. “Pakistan’s religious parties demand extension of Islamic law,” by Raza Khan forÂ The Washington Times,Â
Pakistani Christian man — the “lowest of the low” — murdered
“Explaining the reason behind rising incidents of discrimination, abduction, forced conversion and rapes [and murders, of course] involving vulnerable segments of society,” a human rights advocate in Pakistan said, “You can always expect occurrence of such incidents in presence of a multi-law system.” That would be the sort of law-system theÂ Obama administration is acquiescing to.

British universities: Breeding grounds for Islamic terrorism
Just another blow to the “poverty-and-ignorance-fuel-jihad” myth, which isÂ constantly being disproved. “Terror blunder: British universities are ‘real and serious’ terrorism threat,” Graeme Paton for theÂ Telegraph, April 9:
“Afghan intelligence officials are sympathetic to the Taliban and they communicate the movements of the occupying forces [U.S. and NATO] to us”
As I have explained many times, there is no orthodox Islamic sect or school of Islamic jurisprudence that doesÂ notÂ teach the necessity of waging war against unbelievers and subjugating them under the rule of Islamic law. Consequently, it is not surprising that Muslims who are members of the government of Afghanistan will be sympathetic to the Taliban, because they see them as the exponents of authentic Islam.
