Imran, you too?

Scratch the surface of a ‘moderate Muslim’ and before you know it, you find a ‘radical’.  In the case of Imran Khan, Paki cricket star and once married to a rich and pretty Jewess, there are few surprises left. For years he has already shown his true colors. It seems with age the fanatical frenzy just increases:

Paki Islamic supremacist warns that 86-year sentence for jihadist Aafia Siddiqui will intensify hatred of U.S. in Islamic world

Why? I thought that the jihadists were just a Tiny Minority of Extremists. But anyway, the idea that defending ourselves against jihadists will intensify anger against us in the Islamic world shows the hollowness of any argument predicated on the idea that we should change our behavior in any way so as to appease Muslim anger. Obama and Petraeus wanted Terry Jones to call off the Qur’an-burning because Muslims would be angry; now the U.S. should have let off a murderous jihadist, Aafia Siddiqui, because Muslims will be angry. At a certain point we have to say that we’re going to be who we are, and exercise our freedoms, and defend ourselves, no matter who it angers.

Fanatical Frenzy "Erupts" Over Jailing of "Daughter of the Nation"

Aafia Siddiqui, a Pakistani woman  trained as a scientist in the U.S. was sentenced to 86 years in prison Thursday after she was convicted of trying to kill U.S. Army soldiers and FBI agents in Afghanistan two years ago. (WSJ)

As ever, “eruptions” are awfully easy to come by there. An update on this story. “Pakistan erupts over jailing of scientist Aafia Siddiqui,” from Agence France-Presse, September 24 (thanks to JW):

Pakistani police used tear gas to disperse protesters who shouted “Death to America” in outrage after a US court jailed a woman scientist for 86 years for attempting to murder US officers.

In a case that has been condemned across the nuclear-armed Muslim nation of 167 million, the government said it would petition Washington to secure the mother of three’s repatriation on humanitarian grounds.

A New York court found Aafia Siddiqui, the once brilliant scientist dubbed “Lady Qaeda” by the US tabloids, guilty of the attempted murder of US military officers in Afghanistan in 2008 – five years after she disappeared.

In Karachi, Siddiqui’s home town and Pakistan’s largest city, police fired tear gas shells to prevent scores of people from marching on the US consulate at the behest of the youth wing of Islamist party Jamaat-e-Islami (JI).

Paki protesters burn effigies of U.S. President Hussein Obama (R) and former Paki President Pervez Musharraf, during a protest in Multan, September 24, 2010, to condemn the verdict against Aafia Siddiqui. A U.S. judge imposed an effective life term of 86 years on Thursday on Pakistani neuroscientist Siddiqui convicted of shooting at FBI agents and soldiers after her arrest in Afghanistan.

The protesters shouted “Death to America”, “Allahu akbar” (God is greater),“Free Aafia Siddiqui” and “Down with the US system of justice”.

The last one — that’s ultimately what it’s all about, isn’t it?

Hundreds more took to the streets in Pakistan’s second largest city of Lahore. Cricket hero-turned-politician Imran Khan led a rally to condemn the verdict as “unethical and inhuman”, an AFP reporter said.

They condemned President Asif Ali Zardari and Khan, who heads the party Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (Pakistan Movement for Justice), warned that the verdict could fan anti-Americanism across Pakistan and the Muslim world.

Hundreds more rallied under the auspices of the JI in Lahore, shouting “Go America Go, Free Aafia Siddiqui”.

“The judgement against Siddiqui is based on anti-Muslim policy of the US,” said Liaqat Baluch, the senior JI leader who led the rally.

In Islamabad, police stopped dozens of Islamic students from marching on the US embassy to hand over a protest note. The crowd shouted “Crush America”,“Siddiqui is our sister” and “We will bring her back”.

Dozens of lawyers and activists blocked traffic in the central city of Multan, shouting “Down with America” and setting fire to an effigy of President Barack Obama and former Pakistani president Pervez Musharraf, an AFPreporter said….

Aww! Pakistan & Taliban Combine Forces to Demand "Return of Aafia Siddiqui"- the Al Quaeda Mama

Taliban to murder American soldier unless MIT-trained jihadist is released

“Being Muslims, it becomes our religious and moral obligation to help the distressed Pakistani woman convicted by the US court on false charges.”

Odd, isn’t? The Western media avoids mentioning anything about the fact that Aafia Siddiqui is a Muslim or was influenced by Islamic teachings, as if it were completely irrelevant to her violent actions. Yet at the same time, for the Taliban that’s the onlything that matters about her.

Supporters of religious party Jamiat-e-Ulema-e-Islam burn a U.S. flag to protest against the conviction of a Pakistani woman by a U.S. court, during a rally in Quetta, located in Pakistan’s Baluchistan Province February 4, 2010. About 2,000 Islamists protesting against Siddiqui’s conviction chanted slogans against the United States and support for Afghan Taliban leader Mullah Mohammad Omar in the southwestern city of Quetta. Aafia Siddiqui, 37, was convicted in a New York court on Wednesday for grabbing a U.S. officer’s rifle while she was being questioned in 2008 in Afghanistan and firing at FBI agents and military personnel as she was wrestled to the ground. Pakistan will take all steps necessary to bring home a Pakistani woman convicted in a U.S. court for shooting at her U.S. interrogators in Afghanistan, a government spokesman said on Thursday.

An the dhimmi press misinforms, as usual:

Neuroscientist makes war on America, for some reason

“Pakistani scientist found guilty of attempted murder” by Amy Sahba for CNN, February 3, is a typical example of the mainstream media’s deliberate obfuscation of the global jihad.

In it, Islamic jihadist Aafia Siddiqui is identified as a “Pakistani neuroscientist” and “an American-educated neuroscientist.”

The Real Scoop on Aafia Siddiqi: Her Circle of Boston Friends & How We Blew It

The next time I complain about the number of Muslim student visas we issue, think about Aafia Siddiqui, Bassan Kanj, and the Boston terror cell. They were guests in our country, and they planned our future demise at least a decade ahead.

Siddiqui’s conviction for shooting at U.S. soldiers after they caught her in Afghanistan (with chemicals, a dirty bomb recipe, plans to blow up U.S. gas stations and major New York sites) is really not the story here.  The story is Aafia Siddiqui’s part in the early stages of Al-Qaeda around the world, as it was formed by a close circle of friends, who were mostly Muslim students in Boston here on visas in the late 1980s and early to mid-’90s.  One of those students, one of those friends, was Aafia Siddiqui, who would later become Al-Qaeda’s designated master terrorist in the U.S., until she was caught in Afghanistan.  It’s the story of how America dropped the ball on the inchoate Al-Qaeda world leadership concentrated amongst a few Muslim visa holders concentrated in a major American city.  And it’s the story of how America let those people leave the country and did nothing to stop them, even the one they caught after 9/11 and willingly gave up to the Syrians.

Aafia Siddiqui is guilty, guilty, guilty. Of course, the juice are to blame:

After the verdict was delivered, Siddiqui shouted to the court: “This is a verdict coming from Israel, not America.”  Guilty: Paki al Qaeda Agent Convicted — Jews Mostly to Blame /Jawa Report

More pic’s from the courtroom drama here….

That’s the real story behind Aafia Siddiqui that you didn’t hear, amidst the hubbub about her shrieks against Jewish jurors and judges, and the Israelis.  But I’m telling the Cliff’s Notes, er . . . “Debbie’s Notes” version of that frightening story here.

That’s the story you didn’t hear in the Siddiqui trial. And you may never hear about it again. Sadly.

But we have this from Pakistan, our friend and ally:

thousands of protesters demand  the release of this terrorist scumbag, telling us this would “improve the image of the US…”

Pakistan Reacts To Pakistani Al Qaeda Agent Aafia Siddiqui Conviction

Jawa Report Via CSM

Karachi, PakistanThousands of political and social activists and students across Pakistan on Thursday protested the conviction of Aafia Siddiqui by a Manhattan jury for the attempted murder of US soldiers in Afghanistan.

Siddiqui, a US-educated neuroscientist and Pakistani citizen was found guilty Wednesday. For many Pakistanis, the verdict is another example of the US government’s high-handedness and is expected to fuel anti-American sentiment in a country where Washington’s foreign policy is already viewed with suspicion.

“The public’s reaction [to the conviction] can be read as a reaction to drone attacks, travel restrictions, and other discriminatory policies [against Pakistanis],” says Riffat Hussain, a political and defense analyst at Islamabad’s Quaid-e-Azam University.
