animals run amok while getting billions in US taxpayer funding, which only helps them run amok even more

The Obama admin recently stated that Pakistani ISI officials had “immunity from prosecution” over the 26-11 terrorist attacks. This means that even though the Pakistani terrorists who carried out the Mumbai terrorist attacks on 26-11 were armed, trained and despatched by the ISI, the US is giving them immunity from prosecution, essentially saying that what they did was okay. Let me point out that a number of Americans were also killed in those attacks.

So the 200 people that were apart of the mob now need to be executed now for burning a Koran in which they covent. Seems like they don’t follow the same principals in which they believe. Do as I say not as I do. Very Muslim like. I am Canadian and have Canadian values but to be honest, I’m losing faith in my fellow man. I am Christian and do not want to judge anyone but even now I am struggling to keep my thoughts to myself. It’s not my place to judge. I don’t really believe those 200 people should be executed but something has to give. I try to be understanding. I talk to many people of multiple faiths and ask them questions to understand their points of view. There are more the 2 sides to a story and we live in a world of multiple faiths which should all be respected. The more I type the more I realize I truly can’t type the words properly to make a solid pointless to kill in the name of the God we believe in. I know the fundamentals of Islam is a religion of peace but Muslims need to learn how to live in peace. Jihad needs to be condoned and forgotten. There is no place in the world for pointless killings or religious wars.

There is no defence for the animals who have burnt a human being alive. It is a terrible thing to happen to anyone no matter what he/she is accused of.

But the way the news is drafted is biased and unhelpful.

I quote from the news:

“Most recently, international attention focused on the case of Rimsha Masih, a Christian teenager accused of having some burnt pages of a child’s exercise book quoting the Koran in a bag of rubbish she was carrying”.

“The case was dismissed last month after a neighbour came forward to say she was framed, possibly to chase Christians out of her neighbourhood”.

Was the neighbour a fair Muslim or a Christian whose evidence was accepted by a Muslim court? Why this aspect of the case has not been mentioned?

There are good and bad people in every society. It is the government of the country that keeps its citizens on straight and narrow and controls crime. But sadly in Pakistan we have the rulers who are not interested in confronting criminals, and law-breakers they are only interested in collecting money and hiding it in Western countries. Thanks to the Western countries’ banking laws. Besides these rulers are the darlings of the West also, the same West that misses no opportunity to malign Pakistan, Pakistanis and Islam.

Note banking laws are the excuse West uses for not disclosing or dealing with corrupt leaders/politicians accounts. The West should note that if they are helpless in changing its own man made laws then they have no right to expect others to

Accept it – Pakistan is a failed state. And yes, it’s a waste of anyone’s funds.

Did not take long for someone to blame the west and ‘man-made’ laws. As long as people in these countries blame the West, they will never resolve their deep social issues.

The U.S also, should have abandoned Pakistan when it commited genocide in East-Pakistan (Now Bangladesh). The genocide ending the lives of countless people, Hindu’s and atheists (Kaffirs they called them) first and the rest (Muslims) selected almost at random to make up the ‘magic number’ of three million. What was the quote back then from the Pakistani government? “Kill three million and the rest will eat out of the palm off our hand”. This was the most organised genocide since the Nazis exterminated the Jews of europe. They are rewarded with fundng ever real allies of the U.S would envy.

Let them get in bed with China like they want, and China can waste money on them instead of us. It’s all good that Pakistan has some crossdresser talk show that everyone loves, bra-vo for being so “progressive”. Now stop burning “infidels” at the stake, maybe.

It is sad for these Pakistanis to exhibit the lowest form of human behavior — acting on emotion instead of logic.

If there is a god, they will suffer for their actions and not be rewarded for murdering a human being. Those who are caught up in mob action are not worth the dirt that supports their feet. It’s too bad the rest of the world tolerates their right to exist.

Atrocities is the penalty for suspending Reason for Faith. Reading the Koran, or the Bible, or the Torah, as the word of “God” chips away your ability to care for others. Eventually, you can end up like the psychopaths who wrote it.

If this behavior is an example of the teachings of their culture and their religion, I would have to say they are totally uncivilized. In this evaluation, one should include other atrocities that seem to be the norm in that country, like the recent attempted murder of a young girl by the Taliban (who so many Pakistanis think of as hero’s), who was attacked for promoting the education of women. then throw in the honor killings of young girls by their own parents. I could go on and on, but why?

I really don’t understand the point of a blasphemy law. If your god is actually bothered by whatever your blasphemous act it, surely – what with him being all powerful and all knowing – he could take his own retribution should he so wish? All the blasphemy laws in any country for any religion really do is either prove that god doesn’t care or that god doesn’t exist. And why doesn’t anyone ever stop to think “Hang on, why did you find burnt pages of the Koran laying around? What were you actually looking for or doing?” Films, cartoons, burnt bits of paper. Religion proves it’s good at removing rational thought from mobs but nothing else.

Whilst two wrong don’t make a right, and this account if, proven to be true is sad reflection of what goes on in poor countries (low caste Hindu women being raped for not washing higher casts men folks feet doesn’t quite get the same publicity), it’s nice to know that many of those commenting think of them as ‘animals’, it probably makes it easier to clear their conscious when think (if they do) about their surgically accurate weapons (missiles, drones etc.) that that kill women and children too by the thousand to date.

Oh and for the Christian loosing faith in his fellow (obviously non-Christian) man, his country just supported a country that killed 1500 within weeks (atleast 30% children under 16) in revenge for the loss of 14 people over 4 year (and some of those were killed by friendly fire). What a hypocrite.

I have many dear and close friends who are muslim and I think they are equally disgusted with this type of animal behavior – these people are a disgrace to Islam and are a bunch of loser fanatics that are too poor and ignorant to know any better – this fanaticism is what is turning our world upside down – and I believe this fanaticism exists across all three major religions of Islam, Christianity and Judaism – extremism is deadly
