Pakistan finds that it is at the centre of terror, even though no one has blamed the terrorists for the Balochistan earthquakes, which are about as bad as the one in Azad Kashmir in 2005. There have been more than 530 people killed so far, and all of them as Pakistani as the 80 Christians killed in Peshawar (which was followed on Friday by a bomb blast killing government servants on a bus). It is almost as if the Almighty is teaching a lesson to both the militants and their opponents. The militants are being taught the lesson that they are not better than the Almighty at causing death. That is still one of His prerogatives. The opponents are being taught that they should not make such a fuss, for Muslims are dying too. And if the Christians are being killed by the harsh views of the militants, then why are the Muslims being killed? What harsh views about them does the Almighty have?
It would suit everyone to blame the terrorists for the earthquake. That would fit the people killed into a neat pattern which would allow the USA to do what it does best, kill Muslims. It should be noted that it kills Muslims to curry favour with the Israeli lobby. Look at the Nairobi mall hostage drama. Terrorists were blamed, as usual. It was also said that an Israeli, or some Israelis, were among the hostages. It almost seemed as if those Kenyan negro lives were not worth anything compared to Israeli lives, presumably white. It is not well known enough that Israeli Zionists are arrant racists. Ask any Israeli Sephardim, who are Jews of Spanish or Arab origin, as opposed to the Ashkenazim, who are of European origin. Ashkenazim are the majority of those Jews who migrated to the USA, who were killed by Hitler in the Holocaust, and who founded Israel. Ask the Falashas, or Ethiopian Jews, who are blacks, and faced as bad racial discrimination in Israel as any faced by African-Americans at the hands of whites. And as mentioned by Malcom X in his Autobiography, Jews in the USA were the white men owning the businesses in black neighbourhoods. That must have been where they first used the Yiddish word schwartzeh as their own equivalent of the pejorative ‘nigger’.
Another event where the USA failed to use the ‘terrorist’ label is on the attack on the Navy Yard in Washington. That has been brushed aside as another ‘deranged-shooter’ incident, even though it has meant voices being raised about the proliferation of such incidents in the USA. And these days, you can’t even mention race in the USA, even though the Navy Yard shooter was what the Zionists would call a schwartzeh. But then, Alexis Aaron was darker and heftier than the average Falasha. In fact, come to think of it, US President Barack Obama is a little light, but has the build and look of a Falasha. He’s perhaps the only context in which you can safely mention race in the USA. You know, how great the Americans are, to elect a black man President. Leave aside the fact that he’s a coconut (white on the inside). Leave aside that foreign policy was in the safe (white) hands of Vice-President Joe Biden and Secretary of State Hilary Clinton, and her successor John Kerry.
It seems that the wave of criminal assault that started in Lahore has spread, and now it seems that it has struck in Gujranwala, the city of wrestlers. And it seems that rapists have become both cleverer and bolder, especially after the Keystone Kops-style incompetence shown by the Lahore police, which has failed to make an arrest in the case it had. Now it seems that those who commit criminal assault must also commit murder. And then they will be safe. Perhaps these assaults should be blamed on terrorists. It seems the terrorists are to be blamed for everything, including the weather.
There has been some rain, though it does not seem to have brought on autumn yet. We’re still in the monsoon, it seems, though the season has officially passed. But the weather has changed enough for us to be able to do without a fan for a little while. And doing without a fan is not so much a luxury as an economic necessity. Air conditioners still have a utility, but if you keep them on for too long, you can get too cold. Of course, there is the view that any time you turn them on is too long.
Of course, Mian Nawaz finds that there is too much going on, so he has gone abroad. I mean, he has proceeded to address the UN General Assembly, where he has met world leaders like Dr Manmohan Singh of India and John Kerry of the USA. Of course, neither Dr Singh nor Secretary Kerry has anything to do with either the Lahore or Gujranwala criminal assaults, nor with the Peshawar church or bus bomb blasts. Nor have either to do with the Nairobi hostage crisis. Quite the opposite. Both are unshakeable in the War on Terror. However, the Indians have got a more redoubtable warrior on terror, none other than the BJP’s own Narinder Modi, who aspires to Dr Singh’s job, after proving, by presiding over pogroms of Muslims, that he understands the real purpose of the War on Terror: killing Muslims.
So while Mian Nawaz didn’t meet President Obama, and Dr Singh did, while Iranian President Rouhani spoke to him on the phone. He seems better than Egypt’s President Mohammad Morsi, if not for his own people, then at least to the Americans. And as we learnt during the last five years, what the Americans think is not just what matters, but it is also what goes.
