kasmir not a war of independence

Reader comment on item: Arab-Israeli Fatalities Rank 49th

Submitted by nitish (India), Oct 12, 2007 at 01:20

mr. pipes,

with great regard to your worldly knowledge and me being a great fan of yours, let me add this. i have also read about your comments on the indian-pakistani war on kashmir. you in your speech rather seem to support the poor israelis killed in ghastly terror atacks by various terrorists groups like hamas,fatah and of course hezbollah, but when it comes to attacks on indians by hardline groups like jaish-e-mohammed and lashkar-e-toiba which are overtly and covertly supported by pakistan, and various groups now becoming strong in bangladesh supported by the army, you change your stance on anti-terror and say that kashmir is a war of independence.

Well, any person with as great knowledge as yours would know that it is not a war of independence but a systematic plan to divide india. Of course you will know that ' ORGANISATION OF ISLAMIC CONFERENCE' just like it has taken a stance on Israel has a very similar stance on INDIA, an supports the terrorist groups operating in the region.

I think this support comes because you in america think that pakistan is a supporter in the war against terror but recent news reports where the pakistani army puts down arms without a proper fight suggest the opposite. i think this support of yours crops up from cold war aliies and enemies, but i would say this, when people support the groups in kashmir, you are merely making the terrorists stronger and stronger.
