In the year 711 the first Mohammadan invaders roared through the Khyber Pass and descended into the Indian Subcontinent to conquer the political district of Sind. On 9-11 Muhammadans hijacked two aircraft crashed into New York's World Trade Towers and annihilated the largest symbols of the land of sin and material wealth Â (for those of a more conservative disposition running toward medeval) to the ground.
A decade later a heavily financed group of Mohammadans sought to build a Muslim Cultural Center in the shadows of the Towers their co-religionists had destroyed. The pure land (the meaning of the word Pakistan) is an ideal of Deobandists, Wahaabists and other fundamentalist Mohammadans. In accord wth lands of the kfirs that are regarded as the Dar al Harb or land of war with infidels, the Muslim advance must start somewhere.
Muhammad Ali Jinnah was the leader of the Indian Muslim seperatist and independence movement. He was the first Muslim delegate to the New Government of India the British created early in the 20th century and soon quit to become leader of the Muslim seperatist movement. Jinnah was also the first Governor General of Pakistan after seperation in 1947.
Jinnah and countless other Mohammadans or Mussulmen as they called themselves Â the five provinces that would become Pakistan wrote and made speeches on the fact that Mohammadanism and Hinduism were not religions so much as culltures, and that the two cultures were fundamentally entirely unreconcilable. Pakistan was founded upon the profound recognition of religious intolerance and the uncompatability of the Muslim religion with that of other.
The 20th century leaders of the Muslim independence movement wrote that repression of the Shria is unacceptable to Muslims, and that the evolution of the umma or realm alllegiant to Mohammad and Allah is an emergent, this worldly process unlike Christianity with its belief that this world is wicked. Christians it was said look forward to heaven and meekly attend churches, while Muslims may agitate until rule of Shria is accomplished. Thus the lying and killing normative in the advancing waves of Muslim expansion into new modern nations is acceptable with the Koran and immams in order to create a world molded after the fundamental power of Â those allegiant to Mohammadanism.
The intention to build an Islamic cultural center and mosque near ground zero is an obvious affront of power to the city of New York as well as the people of the United States as well as a start at subverting the secular government of the United States. Nothing like that should occur perhaps even if Â the federal debt becomes entirely unmanagable because of reckless tax cuts, protracted incompetent spending in the military policy of Afghanistan and the national budget suffers because of fossil fuel imports and non-electric car imports.
Perhaps most Americans are unaware that Pakistani Intelligent Services worked closely with the Taleban before they took power in Afghanistan, and helped with their air evacuation from Kandehar in November 2001. It is written that the Clinton administration let the Pakistan Government know that it was launching cruise missiles to hit Bin Ladin in 1996, and that bin Ladin promptly evacuated the site. Pakistan's political situation is not one especially useful to U.S.interests in the region.
An alternative policy may be to reinforce non Sunni, non-Pushtun peoples in Afghanistan so they can survive independently should we drawn down our forces, and yet remain supportive of such Pushtun peoples (the majority0 in Afghanistan through intelligent economic ecologically renewable local design assistance.
