Bits Of Knowledge Go A Long Way Regarding Pakistan

n 1839, The empire-keen British sought to expand the borders of its colony of British India, by launching a war of conquest against the neighboring Pashtuns. The Pashtuns, as a fiercely independent tribal warrior people, resisted ferociously, so that the British conquest of them was not successful. The British were only able to conquer part of the Pashtun territory, and even that remained in constant rebellion against them. Meanwhile, the remaining unconquered portion of Pashtun territory became the nucleus for the formation of Afghanistan. In 1893, the British imposed a ceasefire line on the Afghans called the Durand Line, which...

The Poetry Of Dust To Dust, Osama Is Dead

HE CELEBRATION AND GENERAL REPORTAGE of Osama bin Laden is an American moment and an international swatch, because the bin Laden operatives murdered hundreds of Republicans, Democrats, Winsome Wingnuts, various Christians, Jews, Muslims and a conflagration of other travelers and players, all educated and dramatized for the Cause in different flavors and cultural contexts on that fateful date—September 11, 2001. And it goes without saying that the Media Left's clownish bias is showing up once again with typical hubris and vitriol, while the Right, say WE THE PEOPLE, stays in their spirit-branded patriot's box, giving credit where credit is due—to...

THE FOUNDING FATHERS OF PAKISTAN knew and realized that religion is a private matter. Most espoused that there was to be a separation between religion and government.

Is this the legacy of the secular Jinnah? The whole history of Pakistan has been rewritten but to the serious...


Burning Love From Pakistan

ore burning love from the freaking religion of peace. This lovely image shows how much of a moral stupor these gesticulating Muslims who wallow about in daily outrage pretend to be. And we thought it was just Saudi Arabian officials who went all fire and brimstone when confronted by the soppy red hearts of Saint Valentine's Day. Of course they are on some mullah's payroll. Of course, they are dumb and dumber. But they execute the part they play with a strong mix of vigor and anguish, just like the anti-Valentine thugs are designed to be. They're morally outraged at...


Jihadists Continue Siege Against Buddhists

triking out at the rampant Islamophobia (it's everywhere, you know) displayed by ancient Buddhist carvings, the irrepressible iconoclasts of the Taliban have attempted to continue the work they began when they blew up the Buddhas of Bamiyan. Oh, what fun they'll have in Europe! Suspected pro-Taliban militants have tried to blow up an ancient carving of Buddha in north-west Pakistan. The giant statue, thought to date from the second century BC, sustained only minimal damage in the attack near Manglore in remote Swat district. The area, however, has seen a rise in attacks on "un-Islamic" targets in recent months. This...
