Nothing of meaning....

Reader comment on item: Still Asleep After Mumbai
in response to reader comment: Let me laud you!!

Submitted by Ian (United States), Jan 2, 2009 at 22:03

So in response to my comment you are saying that your "Allah " has good things in store for you and there is not going to be any consequences for the Mumbai attacks or Islamic terrorism because your allah has a plan?? What if the plan is to destroy Islam or Islamic fundamentalism ? Are you ready to be betrayed by Allah ?? I find that incredibly naive to think so because the Mumbai attacks have reinforced and reaffirmed that Pakistan has indeed been the seat of Islamic terrorism across the world all this time and is a bane for civilized countries all over the world. With it so close to edge of falling into anarchy, its volatile nature makes it even more dangerous and gives more credence to the Indian position than ever.

Though, as of now there maybe no physical action against Pakistan, it has convinced the citizens of the world that Pakistan = terrorists. So a perception has been formed and I doubt your rhetoric will be seen as anything surprising coming from another potential terrorist/terrorist apologist. As for no evidence, I wonder how you can still believe that when Lashkar itself claimed responsibility and American, British and Israeli investigators have found conclusive evidence that the perpetrators are from Pakistan.

You say that no court will convict somebody on a confession ? That is absurd! Every court in the world accepts confessions from terrorists. Besides even without a confession, the terrorists parents itself claim to recognize him and have said so to western journalists! He is even on the Pakistani voter rolls ! It is absurd to think he is anything else except Pakistani as if he were in India, why would he have needed a boat with GPS devices and make VOIP calls to Pakistan for instructions ?? Its ridiculous to think he is not Pakistani.

As for not being able to convict him, I think you will see that the Indians will convict him easily. Even if he was in the US, they would be able to convict him as a Pakistani as the FBI has so much proof already. I find the whole concept of "Islamic forces" to be so medieval that it almost ludicrous. To discern the world with such a narrow mind is shocking indeed and maybe the root cause of the Islamic countries- their mental backwardness . The thing Islamists fail to realize is that the West does not operate from the point of religion, nor do most civilized countries. Their goals are for their national security and protecting their way of life, while you Islamists seem to fight for something as silly as god and religion.
