Musharraf suave and the importance of 9/11

Reader comment on item: Do Radical Islamists Run the Middle East?

Takes real guts to plug your book in the heat of the geopolitical countdown, smiling your way through the heart of the Satan's own media and publishing! The triumph of Saladin might pale before this!

Somehow we overlooked the importance of the date of Attack Against America, 9/11, which is all-important to Pakistan since it commemorates the death anniversary of Pakistan's founder, Qaid-e-Azzam, Mohammad Ali Jinnah!


An exercise in futility, September 17, 2006]. And like a friend has pointed out, it is quite significant that the Pakistan ISI should name its own covert terrorist force as Al Qaida, in commemoration of its founder again, under the decoy leadership of OBL!

We shall watch with interest the unfolding scenario in Waziristan -- in whose primary interest will the ceding of territory play out! Once the fires blaze out of control, it can be anyone's guess, but like I said before, this guy could himself be a strong contender for the job of the future Caliph -- a reinvented Mufti commanding a huge non-Arab Muslim force. Hollywood might well eat its heart out.
