“Doctor Sahib! Towers in the village of New York in your country were attacked. Uzum mofsar (I am sorry)” said Faisal Baig

Two weeks before the attack on the Twin Towers in September 2001, Greg Mortenson was in north Pakistan,  building one more of the many primary schools for girls under the supervision of his Central Asia Institute, a foundation that Jean Hoerni financed and appointed Greg as director..

Greg started his mission in 1994 and was getting very familiar with the Karakoram and Hindu Kush regions, after his failed assault on K2 in 1993.

Greg, Apo and Hussein (the driver) were driving in the Shigar Valley near the town of Gulapor. This district was predominantly of Balti ethnics and of the Chiaa sect. And yet, they were observing a brand new huge and long edifice (200 meter-long and enclosed within a 6-meter wall).

Apo said: “This is a madrassa” (one of the hundreds of religious schools that the wahhabi Saudi Arabia absolute monarchy was investing billion to build in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Egypt… Anywhere the Moslem Sunni sect was predominant, and also erecting mosques and hiring Wahhabi religious clerics to preach and run the mosques and religious schools…

Mortenson said: “Are you sure Apo that it is not a military base? You would expect these kind of schools to be mushrooming in the Waziristan region” (Where the Afghan Taliban had their bases and headquarters in western Pakistan)

Apo tried to explain that these religious schools are so large because thousands of poor male kids attend religious indoctrination: They are crowded as bees…

The most promising students are dispatched to Saudi Arabia and Kuwait for further “education and formation” during 10 years and then sent back to teach, marry 4 wives, procreate and increase the number of wahhabis…

Mind you that after the Soviet troops withdrew from Afghanistan in 1989, the USA totally forgot Afghanistan: The US administrations were busy handling the situation after the fall of the Berlin Wall and the disintegration of the Soviet Union States, particularly in eastern Europe, and the mass genocides that ensued in Yugoslavia…

For over a decade, the extremist and obscurantist Taliban (financed and supported by Saudi Arabia and Pakistan secret services) occupied Afghanistan, except the north-eastern province of the Panjshir and the Wakhan Corridor, under the Tajik warlord Massoud.

The El Qaeda of Ussama bin Laden was firmly entrenched in Afghanistan and in the western provinces of Pakistan, and enjoying the full support of Mullah Omar, the Taliban leader, a graduate from a “madrassa” in Pakistan.

In early September 2001, a new wahhabi mosque was finished in the center of the city of Skardu, the capital of the Balistan province in north-east Pakistan.

On Sept. 9, Mortenson was heading toward the town of Zuudkhan in north-west Pakistan in order to inaugurate 3 projects: A water purification, a small hydroelectric generator, and a dispensary.  The team spent the night at the village of Sost and he received the news that the Afghan Tajik warlord Ahmad Shah Massoud was assassinated by al Qaeda recruits. The executioners were two female Algerian jihadist who claimed to beBegian film makers. The instrument for the killing was a camera loaded with explosives.

Massoud was at the military base of Khvajeh Ba Odin, an hour flight by helicopter to Sost.

Ussama bin Laden figured out that if Massoud is eliminated and the Sept. 11 attack a success, then there will be no serious opponents in Afghanistan to support the US troops…

The people in the region were apprehensive and expected a soon Taliban attack and were looking toward the Afghan borders.

Two days later, 19 kamikazes, of mostly Saudi Arabia, launched their commercial line attacks on 4 targets on US soil.

This time around, the US remembered the plight of the Afghan people by launching 150 cruise missiles. Each cruise missile cost $900,000, enough to build hundred schools in Afghanistan and pay for the teachers for an entire year.

Mind you that a teacher cost $20 per month in Afghanistan at that time!

Note 1: In December 2000, the daily Ain al Yaqeen (Eye of Certainty) had disclosed that the foundation Al-Haramain, one of 4 such organizations for proselytizing the wahhabi sect, had constructed 1,100 mosques, madrassa, and Islamic centers, just in Pakistan and was paying the salary  of 3,000 instructors and employees.

In the same decade, the most active of these  4 organizations, The international Islamic Rescue Organization (IIRO) had built 1,800 mosques, and budgeted $45 million for the teaching of Islam, and hired 6,000 “educators”, and these money were mostly invested in Pakistan… The IIRO was directly funding and supporting Taliban and Al Qaeda

Note 2: The Pakistani journalist Ahmed Rashid of Lahore, and the most eminent specialist in extremist Moslem movements, estimated in “The Shadow of the Talibans” that about 80,000 students from various madrassas have joined Taliban, and that 20% of the students undergo military training for the Jihad purpose against the “infidels”

Note 3: The World Bank study in 2001 revealed that 20,000 madrassas were dispensing a fundamentalist Islamic program to 2 million Pakistani Students

Making sense of tragedy at Sandy Hook? Or time for action and taking the high-ground?

Are you trying to make sense of 20 children and 8 adults dead?

How sadly relevant.</p><br /><br />
<p>Good Night Progressives.--Dave.

I’m reading:

1. “How many of these tragic events will it take before access to fire arms becomes controlled? It’s infuriating!”

2. The acceptance of violence every day is the problem. The acceptance of calling our civilizations civilized when we kill, beat and hate each other….

3. That there are victims of violence, but it’s not as shocking as a school!

4. We accept a culture of violence on television of bare-knuckle brawls and Hollywood wars and wars on terror.

5. We know that people are being killed every day, but we don’t know them, until they die of a disease or tragedy. As much as I am for acquiring a gun, being at least as hard as getting a driver’s license, gun laws are not going to fix this culture of violence.

6. Being able to shoot, without much restrictions, more than 150 bullets, with no need to recharge, and to shoot in a classroom… Does this has anything to do with legitimate rights to protecting “my home”, to self-defense…? Carrying 3 guns and a machine gun….

7. There is no making sense of the tragedy at Sandy Hook or other past, present, and future tragedies.

8. Reasons help but they don’t make sense of something. It helps to say the gunman was on drugs or crazy, but only a little.

9. At one point, Job says, “Though He (God) slay me, yet will I trust Him.” Job wasn’t making sense of things. He was responding.

10. I remember recorded phone messages from the past 9/11 tragedy. Their voices whispered, “I love you.” Today, people in Sandy Hook gather together, all bewildered and broken hearted, some angry, but most importantly, loving each other.

11. Tomorrow’s tragedy waits. It doesn’t make sense to me, but I know it’s there.

12. At best, we’ll find reasons that might explain but won’t satisfy. The same thing is happening across the globe in places like China or Africa. And what about tsunamis, fires, earth quakes, and …

13. Leading with love also means preparing for and preventing tragedies, making things better…

14. Leaders who love, express:

  1. Compassion toward the broken.
  2. Correction toward the confused.
  3. Confrontation toward the belligerent making things better.

President Obama is good at delivering “compassion speeches”: He never missed to send his empathy to the bereaved families, on scores of these similar mass slaughtering…

Obama is good talking and expressing compassion… What did Obama delivered in matter of correct message toward the confused? In matter of confronting the belligerent in making things better?

Obama has been totally busy assassinating “al Qaedapotential leaders with repeated double-tap drone attacks, waiting for rescuers to approach before sending a second and a third missile… And the US public opinion has nothing to qualify these tactics as “terrorist” activities that kills civilians (95% of the casualties) in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Yemen…

Share this if you agree

Let’s listen to Morgan Freeman‘s take on what happened yesterday :

“You want to know why? This may sound cynical.

It’s because of the way the media reports it. Flip on the news and watch how we treat the Batman theater shooter and the Oregon mall shooter like celebrities.

Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris are household names, but do you know the name of a single *victim* of Columbine?

Disturbed people who would otherwise just off themselves in their basements see the news and want to top it by doing something worse, and going out in a memorable way.

Why a grade school? Why children? Because he’ll be remembered as a horrible monster, instead of a sad nobody.

CNN’s article says that if the body count “holds up”, this will rank as the second deadliest shooting behind Virginia Tech, as if statistics somehow make one shooting worse than another. Then CNN post a video interview of third-graders for all the details of what they saw and heard while the shootings were happening.
Fox News has plastered the killer’s face on all their reports for hours. Any articles or news stories yet that focus on the victims and ignore the killer’s identity? None that I’ve seen yet. Why?
Because they don’t sell. So congratulations, sensationalist media, you’ve just lit the fire for someone to top this and knock off a day care center or a maternity ward next.You can help by forgetting you ever read this man’s name, and remembering the name of at least one victim.
You can help by donating to mental health research instead of pointing to gun control as the problem.

You can help by turning off the news.”

Do you think if the administration claimed that this tragedy was State sanctioned that the US people would make such a fuss?

Killing innocent children in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Yemen, Libya, Iraq, and now Syria are US State sanctioned… Is that’s why the US public opinion is so deathly silent about atrocities done in their name?
