in response to reader comment: "The unfinished battle, Islam and the Jews"

Islamists (both Shia and Sunni) hate:

  1. Hindus
  2. Christians
  3. other declared non-Muslims
  4. Sufis (sect of Islam concerned more with prayers than violence)
  5. Ahmadiyas, a subsect of Sunnis, founded in Sub-continent around 1900; forbidden by Pakistani law since 1980 from calling themselves "Muslim" despite of--or perhaps due to--their contributions to the country which exceed proportionally those of Shias and non-Ahmadiya Sunnis:
    1. Pakistan would have lost Kashmir dispute if Nehru had decided to use brute-force, rather than taking it to Useless Numpties, which could be bamboozled by Pakistan's then Foreign Minister Zafarullah Khan, an Ahmadiya
    2. Original commander of Pakistan's 1965 "Operation Grand Slam" was Akhtar Malik; he was removed from command while the operation was ongoing, which certainly was a contributing factor to Pakistan's getting repulsed by an unprepared India
    3. Only Nobel Prize awarded to anyone declaring nationality as Pakistani was in 1979 to Sahiwal-born physicist Abdus Salaam, an Ahmadiya--who was disallowed from returning home afterwards, until his 1996 passing in Oxford (though he WAS allowed burial)***
    4. Many military personnel of Pakistan were prosecuted for "apostacy" when their ID cards were changed from "Muslim" to "Ahmadiya"--of course, they had been Ahmadiyas all along, and this was result of the war-criminal dictator's "Islamisation" plan
  6. Bahais, a subsect of Shias, treated in Iran in manner similar to Ahmadiyas in Pakistan
  7. Druze, subsect of Shias found mostly in Lebanon, Syria and Holy Land
  8. Any Muslims of the "other" sect
  9. Even Muslims of own sect, deemed "not devout enough"
  10. Other Muslims by convenience--as evicenced in:
    1. Pakistan's 1971 "Operation Searchlight" which led to the murder of 2.3 million mostly-Sunni Bengali Muslims
    2. Judicial murders of about 50,000 political prisoners (almost cent-percent Shia) by Khomeini's regime 1986-1988
    3. Current Darfur crisis (Darfur's population is almost cent-percent Muslim)
***While Subhramanian Chandrashekhar was born in Lahore in 1908, his nationality was originally declared as Indian--and at the time of his Nobel win (1983) American; he was never considered a Pakistani.
