Temporary alliance with the enemies, the Jews

Reader comment on item: Musharraf's Historic Speech

What many Americans may not know is that Musharraf gave two speeches to his countrymen. Faced with a "with us or against us" ultimatum from America, Musharraf gave a speech in English, which only the rich Anglophone Pakistani elite understood, blandly stating that Pakistan is aligning itself with America in the war on terror. A few days later, on September 19, 2001, Musharraf made another speech, this time in Urdu, Pakistan's national language, not meant for Western ears.

In that speech, Musharraf likened his decision to support America with Prophet Mohammed's temporary alliance with his enemies, the Jews, called the Treaty of Hudaybiya.

"Recognise Taliban and buy peace". It is very blunt and to the point. "The only way to influence how the Taliban act is by recognising the regime," he told Izvestia, the Russian daily, in a recent interview. His argument is simple: "No one but the Taliban are capable of guaranteeing peace in Afghanistan today. Whether anyone likes or not the Taliban are a reality."

Pakistan sticks by Taleban ties

Having pointed out all this, I must add that we have no objection to Israel using Pakistan and suckering them to meet its ends. We Indians have no right to complain unless we object to the support for Palestinian terrorists over the years extended by the Dhimmi Republic of India which is run by Nehruvian-Stalinists and supporters of Islamofascists.
