Chris Cork writing in the Pakistani newspaper "Jang" of 09.01.06

Quote:
"The Muslim community leaders are themselves faced with what must be their worst nightmare, for after decades of careful bridge building they have seen the architecture of community harmony shaken to its foundations.
But if they really want to be worried and concerned they should listen to the voices that I hear. Not the windy rhetoric of international diplomacy or the powerful reasoning of carefully weighed op-ed pieces. But the voices of ordinary people here in Pakistan, ordinary Muslims, who rejoice at the work of the bombers, talk about the honour that will go to their families and the wondrous heaven they have entered as a result of their actions. These are not ‘extremists' or ‘fundamentalists', just ordinary people who believe that the butchery is both justifiable and necessary and that more of the same is around the corner. That the cause the bombers espouse is worthy, even holy. This is not some mad minority or a bunch of off-the-wall lunatics inspired by a fiery preacher…these were the people my wife and I had lunch with recently, our friendly and helpful neighbours, and they frightened the living daylights out of us."

Chris Cork's article (Jang, a pakistani newspaper, of 09.01.06) is an honest one.

Will the non-muslims wake up to this reality? Islam is a fascist totalitarian Arabic-imperialist ideology aggressively striving for world dominance. Muslims, arabs, as also the quislingised pseudo-arabs and non-arabs, pose a danger to the non-muslims everywhere today. They indeed do. No way out of acknowedging this fact openly, honestly and squarely.
