I am not ignorant about how you live. I have spent time in the USA in both LA and in Phoenix Arizona and the UK( London) and on the Continent.(Germany-Frankfurt, France -Paris, European Turkey and Switzerland-Geneva). I haven't just visted for a couple of days or trnasitted through. Ive spent months at each location and years in Turkey. So I have a very good idea of who and how you live. Every human being has a right to life and freedom of belief. No one has the right to question to deny or degrade another man's belief. I don't care what your belief is. Once you make manifest your belief, it is worthy of respect. This is the place from where I come. In the sam way I will lay down my life in defence of Islam and my country Pakistan without question or hesitation.

Let me correct you about if it hadn't been for Al-Qaeda we would'nt be interested in your part of the world. That is pure nonsense. America was very interested in pulling a Gas pipeline from Turkmenistan via Afghanistan and Pakistan. America has been interested in my country from 1950 and we are praying for the day we can get rid of you. Recent Suirveys show that 80% of Pakistanis DONT repeat DONT like America and want to be rid of them. Some 40% approximately are willing to fight aginst you. America needs us because of our geography and geography is something we cannot change. So don't liove in you cloud cuckoo land and not being interested in our area. In 1960s Francis Gary Powers took off from Pakistan to overfly the USSR and was shot down. My God you don't knoiw your history..

I didn't know whore houses the world over were full of Pakistani women who were bought or sold so freely. Get over your misconceptions. My wife is is Graduate so is my daughter and my daughter in law to be is doing her masters or post graduate studies. neither my daughter or my daughter in law isare in their teens. They are in their mid twenties and early thirties. Don't beleive evrything you read about us.

Osama Bin laden was a saudi national prior to his being stripped of his nationality. He is not a Pakistani.
He could be in the border areas between Afghanistan and Pakistan or he could be elsewhere. No one is certain of where he is. It is in Iran that you chant Death to America and death to israel and not in Pakistan.
Your Secretary of State Ms. Hillary Clinton and your President Barack Obama have accepted the fact and acknowledged it tto. that America left Afghanistan too prematurely in 1989-1990. So the mess if there is is also one of America's making.

Now you will say that Osama Bin Laden is a Muslim. Ofcourse he is. But isn't Ann Coulter Smith or Rev Jerry Falwell Chrrisatian? Aren't the Evangelical Branch of Christians essentially Fundamentalists? does it mean we should kill them or bad mouth them? There are extremist groups amongst the Jews. So what? In the same way, there is extremism in every religion. You cannot tar everyone with the same colour or brush.

Incidentally, my favourite authors are Thomas Wolfe, Walt Whitman, Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsburg, Ken Kesey. Gregory Corso, Alan Watts, Lawrence Ferlinghetti. Ive enjoyed the music of Bob Dylan, the Jefferson Airplanes, The Doors (Ive read Arthur Rimbaud who was French poet in english and he was also Jim Morrison's guru), and Jass before it became Jazz with a preference for the Chicago styles of jazz. Ive enjoyed Mad magazine and the Blues brothers, Brook Benton, Muddy Water, John Lee Hooker, Tab Benoit, Buddy Guy., Stevie Ray Vaughn. Benny Goodman, Chick Young. and ofcourse Louis Armstrong and Jack Teargarden.I liked Ella Fitzgerald, Dinah Washington Anita O' Day, Ive got Chuck Berry's complete discography. Ive seen Jerry Lee Lewis also known as the killer. I also have the complete Beatles discography

I am as human as you. I have a set of beliefs. I respect your beliefs. I ask for respect for mine because I respect yours. If you way works for you then God bless you. I'd be the last man to change it. I trust my position is clear. We can live and enjoy the best of both worlds. Yours and mine. Ive done that but I am sad you have yet to do so.
