Sunni Islamists strike in Pakistan: 73 reported dead at paramilitary base

Sunni Islamists strike in Pakistan: 73 reported dead at paramilitary base

Radical Sunni Islam is a death cult

Sunni Islamists have struck twice at a Pakistan paramilitary force academy and initial reports state that 73 people have been killed and many have been injured.  The death total could rise further and once more radical Sunni Islamic fanatics have killed innocents in Pakistan.

In the twisted world of radical Sunni Islam where they care about the burial of Osama bin Laden, despite this mass killer gloating over thousands of people being killed on September 11 in America; you will have a deadly silence from the same Sunni Islamic zealots over this latest terrorist attack.

Sunni Islamic fanatics have murdered thousands of innocent Shia Muslims and Christians in Iraq. Yet what do these Islamic fanatics desire from all this bloodshed?

Apparently, the social agenda is not important and clearly sexual freedom and religious liberty is not an issue.  On the contrary, Sunni Islamic zealots desire to enforce Islamic Sharia law on the entire nation. 

This means that the ultimate goal is to enforce dhimmitude on non-Muslims, kill apostates from Islam, stone women to death for adultery, kill homosexuals, and introduce amputations for minor crimes. 

In the dream world of Sunni Islamists in Pakistan they somehow believe that returning to the 7th century will mean progress.  However, it was Muslims who beheaded a relative of Mohammed and it was Muslims who killed the majority of the early caliphs.

What is scary to think is that once the land of Pakistan was an area which belonged to “mother India.”  Therefore, you had a thriving Buddhist community, Hindu community, Sikh community, and other faiths like Zoroastrianism and Jainism will have been part of the fabric of this multi-religious society.

However, Islamic invasions of this part of India and the calamity of partition meant that this land became Islamized.  Therefore, this mainly Islamic nation state remains beholden to Islamists and this stranglehold is destroying Pakistan.

Sunni Islamic radicalism is based on the hatred of the other.  Therefore, they care not if they kill Buddhists, Christians, Hindus, Shia Muslims, Ahmadiyya Muslims, moderate Muslims, and so forth

This Sunni Islamic schizophrenic outlook is clearly dangerous because it desires the blood of the innocents and the only sacred duty is to reject all past non-Muslim culture and to reject all concepts of modernity

The joint terrorist attack will have witnessed Sunni Islamic ecstasy prior to murdering so many innocents and the vast majority of people killed in this Islamic terrorist attack will have been Muslim. 

Despite this, the indoctrinated individuals who have joined numerous different Sunni Islamic terrorist groups will still believe that they will be rewarded in heaven.

Pakistan continues to play “the terrorist card” in Kashmir and Afghanistan. Also, the hallmarks of the terrorist attack in Mumbai led all the way back to Pakistan. 

The same Sunni Islamic forces which have been unleashed in Afghanistan and Kashmir now need to know that Pakistan is serious about breaking up many Sunni Islamic terrorist organizations.

If Pakistan does not act, then the schizophrenic followers of radical Sunni Islam will eat away at the body politic of Pakistan and this will lead to “year Mohammed.”

Schools must come under state control because Islamic religious schools are using their influence and network in order to threaten the central government.  Islamic charities need to be checked for terrorist links and draconian laws need to be eradicated.

Turning back to the twin bomb attack in north-west Pakistan, then it is clear that the death of Osama bin Laden will not stop terrorism.

Despite information still being sketchy it appears that one attack was a suicide attack and the other was a planted bomb which was designed to kill many.

Ahmad Ali, a paramilitary policeman, stated that he could hear the Islamist shouting “allahu Akbar” before killing so many innocient.

Ahmad Ali commented that “I was sitting in a van waiting for my colleagues. We were in plain clothes and we were happy we were going to see our families.”

Ahmad Ali also stated that “I heard someone shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ [God is great] and then I heard a huge blast. I was hit by something in my back shoulder.

Yes, the terrorist prior to the attack was praising Allah before shedding the blood of innocents.

The blind hatred of Sunni Islamic terrorism does not have any boundaries because “the Sunni Islamic death cult” is based on murder, dhimmitude, and rule by fear.

Killing Christians in Somalia, burning Bibles in Pakistan and stealth jihad

Killing Christians in Somalia, burning Bibles in Pakistan and stealth jihad
 
Lee Jay Walker
  
The Modern Tokyo Times

Mansuur Mohammed a Christian convert was beheaded by Sunni Muslims who recited the Koran
Christian convert was beheaded by Sunni Muslims
 in Somalia while they recited the Koran
————————————————————–
 
The mass media and the political correct are in a spin because they cry “Islamophobia” but in the real world it is the followers of Islam who are slaughtering Christians in Somalia and it is only the Islamic faith which continues to kill apostates.  Therefore, you had mass coverage about a pastor who was going to burn the Koran but you have a virtual silence about the annihilation of Christianity in Somalia and the burning of Bibles in Pakistan.

In truth, the Islamists are clearly winning the media war and the political correct, trendy left, and mass of liberals are at odds with what they believe in.  After all, the religion which supports the stoning to death of homosexuals and which enforces women to remain in the shadows is being mollycoddled by a plethora of “well meaning hypocrites.”  Therefore, it appears that killing Christians in Somalia is fine because we must not upset the religion of Islam and the same applies to burning Bibles in Pakistan.
 
It is striking by the amount of political pressure and media pressure which was put on one single pastor, who in truth had no political or religious power, but became a household name in order to show how evil parts of America are.  This suited the “Islamophobia” agenda and political leaders like President Obama joined the bandwagon and once more the religion of Islam became “the innocent victim.”
 
Yet what about the burning of Bibles in Pakistan or the ongoing witch-hunt in Somalia where the Sunni Islamic al-Shabaab (al-Shabab) desire to kill all Christians; does this count?  It would appear not because these problems are ongoing and just like the persecution of Coptic Christians in Egypt or the continuing destruction of Christianity in Iraq ,you hear little about this in the mass media.
 
Dr. Nazir S Bhatti, President of Pakistan Christian Congress (PCC), condemned and rebuked the attack against the Nasri Pentecostal Church which took place on September 18th, 2010.
 
He stated thatThe Sindh government must adopt necessary security measures of Churches and bring accused before justice to those who burnt Holy Bibles and vandalized (the) Church in Shah Latif Town.”  Dr. Nazir S. Bhatti and fellow workers at the Pakistan Christian Post work around the clock (http://pakistanchristianpost.com) in order to highlight and campaign for all minorities in Pakistan.
 
Despite this, while the “trendy brigade” and “political correct” pat themselves on the back about supporting the Islamic faith and showing how tolerant “our Western societies are.”  They remain mainly silent about reports which highlight the rape of Christian females in Egypt and the forced conversion of these Christian females by their Muslim rapists.  Sadly the same brutal method of rape against Christian and Hindu females in Pakistan by Muslims is also a disturbing reality but you have no demonstrations nor is the mass media “sinking their teeth” into issues like this.
 
Therefore, we have a strange “mirror” which is being told by the majority of the mass media. On the one hand we are told that Islam means peace but we know that all apostates face death in Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, the Maldives, and a few other nations. Even in so-called moderate nations like Egypt, prison awaits the apostate from Islam and the family court system in Egypt clearly discriminates against all Christians in divorce cases involving children.
 
The sad reality is simple and it applies to the “dhimmis” bending over backwards in order to appease the Islamic agenda of stealth jihad.  After all, Muslims are free to build their mosques all over America, India, the United Kingdom, and in other democratic nations. 
 
However, people do have genuine fears when they know that Christians have been burnt alive in Pakistan; Christian pastors have been beheaded in Nigeria; Hindu and Christian females have been raped in Pakistan; apostates to Christianity are being killed in Somalia; the Christian community in Iraq is under siege; Buddhists are killed and persecuted in southern Thailand; the Ahmadiyya suffer systematic persecution in Pakistan; the Baha’is reside in fear in Iran; and the list is endless.
 
Remember, all religions will have fanatics but the persecution of Christians in Somalia is being done by a mass terrorist organization called the al-Shabaab (al-Shabab) and the government of Somalia also supports discrimination because Islamic Sharia law supports the death of apostates.  The same applies to Pakistan because Ahmadiyya Muslims, Christians, and others, reside in fear because of the blasphemy law which is punishable by death in this nation.
 
Therefore, the media highlights one pastor in America and condemns him and the same applies to senior political leaders.  Yet we have silence when Christians are being beheaded while Muslims recite the Koran and shout “Allah Akbar” while killing someone in such a brutal way. 
 
Given this, it is clear that systematic persecution in Muslim nations against all non-Muslims in societies like Saudi Arabia is tolerated. The same applies to this nation spreading Islam by funding Islamic mosques, Islamic colleges, Islamic newspapers, Islamic think tanks, and so forth, in order to further stealth jihad.
 
In the last 20 years we have witnessed the Islamization of the Chittagong Hill Tracts where tribals, the majority being Buddhist, have suffered mass Muslim migration from other parts of Bangladesh and systematic persecution.  The same process of Islamization took place in Kashmir because Hindus and other minorities were forced to flee and the same is happening in Kosovo against Orthodox Christianity and Buddhists in southern Thailand face the same fate.
 
These tragedies, and many others that I have not mentioned, are all part and parcel of Islamization.  After all, Islam is vibrant in India because this nation is secular and democratic but de-Hinduization is ongoing in Bangladesh and Pakistan. 
 
Therefore, non-Muslims are faced with a “two-edged sword” and this applies to systematic persecution in the vast majority of all mainly Muslim nations.  At the same time, the Muslim population continues to grow in Western Europe, North America, and in nations like India because of democracy, liberal values towards religion, Islamic kitman, open-minded immigration policies, and massive funding from nations like Saudi Arabia.
 
It is abundantly clear that Saudi Arabia is determined to spread the Islamic faith irrespective if by militancy or by stealth jihad which is based on playing “the victim card” and reinventing Islam to suit the long-term agenda. Given this, the systematic persecution of Christians in Somalia and open discrimination in Pakistan is ignored because other factors are at play. 
 
I stated in my article called Somalia and the reality of radical Islam that “….in modern day Somalia it is open season for killing Christians, killing Muslim apostates, and stoning people to death for adultery. Other draconian measures have also been implemented and chopping the hands off small time criminals is deemed to be a religious duty. Also, strict dress codes are getting even stricter and women have to remain in the shadows.”
 
I also stated in another article called Nigeria and Christian martyrs after several Christian pastors were beheaded by Islamic fanatics in Nigeria that “This madness will never end if appeasement is the answer or if political leaders like Obama, the President of America, make false statements about the real nature of aspects of Islam. I should also stress that “important and deadly facts about the Islamic faith are not being told.” However, Islamists are doing this carnage in the first place because of their deep knowledge of Islam and because killing apostates, forcing minorities into dhimmitude, and declaring jihad is all sanctioned by Mohammed and the Islamic faith.” 
 
It is clear that in the modern world that many political elites, the mass media, major non-Muslim religious leaders, educational institutions, and so forth, alongside the political correct brigade, are playing into the hands of the Islamic agenda.
 
This agenda was laid down by Mohammed himself and it is part and parcel of Islam and organizations like the Muslim Brotherhood must be “washing their hands” at the naivety of many.  Therefore, the killing of Christians in Somalia is rarely mentioned and the same applies to the systematic persecution of Ahmadiyya Muslims, Christians, Hindus, Sikhs, and other minorities in Pakistan.
 
Until senior elites and religious leaders speak out against the brutality of Islamic Sharia law and the true message of Mohammed then little will change in the Muslim world.  However, what will change, is that the power of Islam will grow in Western Europe, North America, India, and other parts of the world and so many factors will enable this, including the betrayal and collective amnesia of the mass media and political elites who have their own agenda.
 
The persecution of Christians in Somalia and all religious minorities in Pakistan is also reaching closer to home.  After all, the London bombings and the Pakistan connection is clear for all to see and many Somali migrants in America have returned to Somalia in order to kill Christians and stone women to death for adultery.
 
The principle of secularism and liberalism is falling on deaf ears because Islamists have freedom to kill in distant lands like Somalia and Pakistan. While closer to home in nations like the UK and America they can indoctrinate and spread the message of hate and work alongside liberal Muslims because this dual agenda is about stealth jihad and Islamization at any cost.
 
Every time a Christian is killed in Somalia or when a Hindu woman or Christian woman is raped in Pakistan and this is met by global silence or indifference.  Then this is a victory for Islamists because they understand that “their brutality” is being met “by weakness or indifference.”
 
I am alarmed by the current reality of stealth jihad at home and systematic persecution of religious minorities and women in the mainly Muslim world.  It appears that the side of hate and slavery via dhimmitude and persecution is winning because of many factors.  Are you not alarmed?

Mohammed the prophet of Islam stated that all apostates must be killed.

Islam in Bosnia is the new stepping stone

Islam in Bosnia is the new stepping stone

 Lee Jay Walker  –   THE MODERN TOKYO TIMES  

 The Ottoman Empire was the last major Islamic assault on Europe in order to Islamize the continent because the earlier Islamic conquest of Spain had crumbled into dust.  However, in the mindset of modern Islamists it is clear that Bosnia is “the Islamic bridge” whereby a new Islamic power can rise in the Balkans and then link with Islamists in Western Europe.

This may appear absurd to some people, however, in the mindset of the former Muslim leader and radical Islamists then this is the case.  For many moderate Muslims in Bosnia or secular minded Bosnian Muslims this may also seem groundless but history tells us something different.

After all, in modern day southern Thailand the Muslim insurgency once was based on nationalism or identity but today many Islamists want to cleanse southern Thailand of all Buddhists and many Buddhist monks have been killed.  Therefore, within a few generations in southern Thailand it is clear that radical Islam is growing and any accommodation with Buddhism is no longer warranted and instead it is pure Islamization.

Therefore, current events in places like southern Thailand can be linked to places like Bosnia because it is like a re-run of past history.  After all, it is clear that the Islamic ideology often rises up from the ashes and the logical conclusion of this is the complete destruction of all things not deemed to be Islamic. 

In my article called Southern Thailand and Islamization, which was published by the Assyrian International News Agency, (http://www.aina.org/news/20100414212354.htm) I stated that “In the past the conflict in southern Thailand was mainly an internal struggle between the majority Muslim community of three southern provinces (Pattani, Narathiwat, and Yala) and the government of Thailand. Therefore, for many decades you had the desire for an Islamic state but nationalism was also a core base for demanding independence. However, in recent times it is clear that the Pattani United Liberation Organization (PULO); the Barisan Revolusi Nasional-Coordinate (BRN-C); Bersatu; Gerakan Mujahadeen Islam Pattani (GMIP); and others, desire an Islamic state and they have a jihadist agenda.”

“In the past the Muslim insurgency was aimed at the government and military of Thailand but times have changed. Therefore, since 2001 it is clear that you now have an overwhelming Islamic jihadist agenda and this is aimed at forcing the Buddhists to flee and moderate Muslims are also being killed because they are deemed to be traitors.” 

If we return back to Bosnia it is also clear that Alija Izetbegovic had a pan-Islamic dream and he welcomed Islamic terrorists from all over the world and accepted funding from nations like Saudi Arabia in order to Islamize society.  Izetbegovic was fully aware that Saudi Arabian funding and other forms of Islamic funding was part and parcel of his dream which was to Islamize Bosnia.

After all, Saudi Arabia is not interested in supporting all the communities of Bosnia because this does not serve their Sunni Islamic Wahhabi cause.  Therefore, irrespective if Orthodox Christian or Roman Catholic, both are deemed to be infidels. The bigger agenda is the creation of an Islamic state and then for this state to be the foundation of a pan-Islamic super-state. 

Izetbegovic stated that “… Muslim nations will never accept anything that is explicitly against Islam, because Islam here is not merely a faith and the law, Islam has become love and compassion. He who rises against Islam will reap nothing but hate and resistance. …”
 
Alija Izetbegovic therefore shared a common thread with the global jihad movement because he also stated“… In one of the thesis for an Islamic order today we have stated that it is a natural function of the Islamic order to gather all Muslims and Muslim communities throughout the world into one. Under present conditions, this desire means a struggle for creating a great Islamic federation from Morocco to Indonesia, from the tropical Africa to the Central Asia. …”

Vojin Joksimovich who is the author of “The Revenge of The Prophet” stated that “The jihadists, from their bases and support facilities in Iran, Sudan, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and elsewhere, did not come to Bosnia only to fight against the ‘Serbian aggressor,’ but for the first European religious state at large, for the establishment of the only faith among the European Muslims.”  (Page 145)

This clearly rings true because this is what Izetbegovic believed in and Vojin Joksimovich continues by stating that the “Creation of Islamic states, so-called Jamahirya states, was the ultimate objective of all these movements.  With the Koran in their hands the jihadists did not distinguish between Catholicism and Orthodoxy, only between believers and unbelievers.”  (Page 145)

According to Western media the war in Bosnia was about the Serbian aggressor against the innocent Muslim lamb.  However, the innocent Muslim lamb invited Islamists and terrorists from all over the world and clearly Izetbegovic had an important agenda and this was the Islamization of Bosnia because he laid down his theories  

Izetbegovic had written “The Islamic Declaration” (“Islamska deklaracija”) and he clearly had an agenda because he desired to start the stepping stone and major Western nations either fell into “the trap” or had “covert interests” in order to further their ambitions in the Balkans?  Either way, for radical Islamists and Izetbegovic it became apparent that major Western nations would do their bidding and on the ground it would be up to the Islamic community to make the most of this golden opportunity. 

This “hidden agenda” was kept from people because it did not fit the media image of an innocent community which was being victimized.  However, if the truth had been told then clearly serious questions would have been raised and the Western media would have been forced to have given a neutral version.   

Yet the “hidden agenda” and the reality of thousands of Islamic terrorists entering Bosnia and killing and slaughtering innocent Christians remained hidden from the general public.  The same applies to major funding from Saudi Arabia and other nations, and the real motives of Izetbegovic were never stated.

Turning back to the writer Vojin Joksimovich he states that “The Saudi Wahhabists, as a part of Wahhabi proselytism, lavishly funded penetration of Islamism into the Balkans.  As an example, Saudi scholar Ahmed ibn-Nafi of Mecca circulated a summon to all centers of the Pan-Islamic Salvation Committee at the outset of the conflict in Bosnia.”  (Page 144)

Ahmed ibn-Nafi of Mecca stated “We entrust you to see to the imminent establishment of the Caliphate in the Balkans, because the Balkans are the path to the conquest of Europe.  Every individual imam in our states, and especially Turkey, is ready to help.  Know, therefore brothers, that the time is working for us.  Let us help our brothers who are fighting for the holy cause in Bosnia.  Let us help them for the sake of Allah, by sending them money and weapons as we can, by sending them new mujahideen……The Caliphate is at hand.”  (Page 144 – Israeli, 2002)

Therefore, radical Islamists in collusion with certain Western governments had a shared interest and the mass media acted shamelessly by denying these facts.  Islamists obviously had a different long-term agenda but surely Afghanistan should have been a learning curve for Western governments which had special vested interests because the same forces which were unleashed could not be contained.

Pakistan today is paying the same price because Islamists were welcomed and supported in order to defeat communism in Afghanistan but the very same Islamists today have turned on their master.  Therefore, in modern day Pakistan you have many terrorist attacks and Islamization is a threat to the central state and all religious minorities, notably Christians, Hindus, Ahmadiyya Muslims, and Sikhs, suffer daily persecution.

Despite this, the Izetbegovic agenda and Islamic dream was supported and in a strange irony you had the democratic world supporting an ideology which desires to defeat and destroy democracy.

Izetbegovic had stated that “… In perspective, there is but one way out in sight: creation and gathering of a new intelligence which thinks and feels along Islamic lines. This intelligence would then raise the flag of the Islamic order and together with the Muslim masses embark into action to implement this order. …”

Therefore, just like Osama Bin Laden it is clear that Izetbegovic desired to raise “the flag of the Islamic order” and while secularists may deny this in modern day Bosnia, it is clear that others have a different agenda. 

If we turn back to southern Thailand then it is clear that you once had a nationalist movement but today we are talking about the systematic annihilation of Buddhism in southern Thailand by radical Sunni Islamists.  At the same time we are witnessing the destruction and marginalization of Hinduism and Buddhism in modern day Bangladesh.

The Islamic agenda may ultimately fail in Bosnia and the same applies to an Islamic caliphate in the Balkans.  However, one thing is for sure and this is that Islamists and funding from Saudi Arabia and other nations will certainly try.  After all, their version of the world is based on an Islamic ideology which desires power and to enforce dhimmitude on non-Muslims.

ISLAM needs to be challenged by true democracy

Islam Needs to Be Challenged by True Democracy

 

By Lee Jay Walker
Tokyo Correspondent    –  THE SEOUL TIMES

 
Islamists pray at a mosque in Seoul.

In the distant past major democratic nations could blame the Cold War for supporting despots like Suharto in Indonesia and authoritarian nations like Saudi Arabia and a host of other nations. However, after the demise of the Cold War many people had genuine hope that a New World Order would arise from the ashes of political and ideological divisions. Therefore, democracy “in your own backyard” is no longer good enough because it leads to mass hypocrisy.

After all, is it right to lambast North Korea but remain quiet about Saudi Arabia? Let us be frank, when the President of America, Obama, visited Saudi Arabia then all his human rights credentials “were thrown out of the window.” For females and non-Muslims suffer greatly in Saudi Arabia and the same applies to the minority Shia Muslim community which suffers so greatly.

So how can Obama lambast North Korea but remain silent about Saudi Arabia? From a female point of view, then women in North Korea have much more rights than they do in Saudi Arabia. Also, the vast majority of people who were responsible for September 11th were Saudi nationals, and of course not one single North Korean was involved. Yet sadly “oil politics” does get in the way and this is the problem, either you have a consistent policy or you should remain quiet.

For North Korea, unlike Saudi Arabia, is a victim of outside nations because “old” Korea was a victim of Japanese imperialism and brutality, and then global power politics helped to divide the Korean peninsula. More recently, America remains firmly entrenched in South Korea and sadly both Korea’s have been victims of past outside history. However, can Saudi Arabia claim the same divisions of society on outside powers to the same extent? Obviously not, but despite this Saudi Arabia can get away with anything, including not building one single Christian church or Hindu temple to serve the migrant population.

More recently, we had President Obama making an emotional plea towards the so-called Muslim world but look at the two nations he decided to launch this fresh agenda. Yes, he went to Saudi Arabia, the land that kills all converts from Islam to Christianity and where Saudi women face severe restrictions. Then he gave his lecture in Egypt, a land where Coptic Christians suffer persecution and where the same leader governs with an “iron fist” year after year. So once more, democracy, religious liberty, equality, and so forth, is “thrown out of the window” and “democracy is on a backburner.”

The “New World Order” was meant to usher in a new period whereby communism was defeated and “the march of democracy” was going to flourish. However, the “New World Order” never got started because capitalist nations still desire to trade with important nations like China and Saudi Arabia, and a host of others, which are undemocratic.

However, in China it is clear that greater freedom is happening and this nation is opening-up because commerce and trade is deemed to be more important than a rigid ideology. So the China of Mao Zedong is long gone and the current leaders of the Chinese Communist Party are very mild when compared with past leaders in the 1950s and 1960s.

Yet when we focus on mainly Muslim nations, the picture is very different because unlike China, opening up is not on the agenda when it comes to greater freedom. Yes, you have some mainly Muslim nations which are democratic, for example Indonesia, Malaysia, Senegal, and Turkey. However, in Turkey you have the Kurdish issue and marginalization of religious minorities and in Indonesia you have Christian-Muslim tensions in parts of this nation and West Papua suffers greatly.

Despite this, you have many positives within the above mentioned nations yet sadly, when we look at the “bigger picture” then it is clear that religious minorities see little in the way of “true democracy.” After all, if a Muslim converts to Christianity, Buddhism, or any other faith, in Afghanistan, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, and some other nations, then this crime is punishable by death.

Meanwhile, in nations like Bangladesh the mainly Buddhist tribals (some are Hindu or Christian) suffer enormous persecution and the same applies to Hindus within Bangladesh. In Pakistan, all minorities suffer at the hands of radical Sunni Muslim zealots and in so-called moderate nations like Egypt, it is clear that you have many anti-Christian laws when it comes to equality.

Also, thousands of women, and the numbers could be in the tens of thousands, are killed in the name of so-called honour every year. These so-called honour-killings mainly go unpunished or very light sentences are given. Therefore, it is clear that women suffer at the hands of conservative Islam and honour killings have now began to happen in Western nations by migrants who have maintained this barbaric tradition. Other non-Muslim societies are also blighted by this terrible crime against humanity, however, it is clear that in parts of the Middle East and other areas like Pakistan, that this problem is severe and for the majority of Islamic clerics they appear to be silent about this real and tragic issue.

So today we have a new leader in America who “is bending over backwards” to accommodate mainly Muslim nations. However, what about the rights of Buddhists, Christians, Hindus, women, Muslim minorities, secularists, socialists, and others, who suffer in so many mainly Muslim nations? How can change happen when no constraints are put on trade or via major international institutions?

Democracy in your own nation is fine, providing you do not try to lecture other nations about the virtue of democracy and providing you state clearly that the human rights of others do not count. Yet nations like America and the United Kingdom use “democracy” to bash North Korea but remain quiet when it comes to Saudi Arabia. This dual policy is sickening and based on “power politics” and self-interests.

Given this, democracy, religious freedom, gender equality and universal rights, are being hindered so conservative Islam can keep on persecuting their respective dhimmi communities. Therefore, the House of Islam is free to spread radical Islam while at the same time Islam can persecute and kill non-Muslims or Muslim minorities in Afghanistan, Algeria, Bangladesh, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, Yemen, and other nations.

Therefore, I am ashamed by democratic nations which do not give two hoots about the rights of others in distant lands. Yet, the same democratic nations will use the “democratic card” to lambast weak nations like North Korea. So clearly America, the United Kingdom, and many other democracies, only use the democratic issue when it suits them but just like radical Islam, you can not switch democracy on or off.

So why is it correct to have democratic freedoms in Western societies and gender equality in Western law, when this criterion is not applied to other nations? Is this really what democracy means in America, the United Kingdom, and other nations?

The answer at the moment to this is clearly “yes.” And I am ashamed of such blatant “double standards” and surely human rights must be a universal right. What makes the situation even worse is that Western trade in nations like Saudi Arabia is vital for their economy and Western nations do have economic and political leverages at their disposal.

For example nations who welcome democracy, gender equality, religious freedom, and so on, should be brought into economic blocs and trade should be focused on these nations. In time both economic and political incentives will encourage greater democratization and this will help internal democratic movements or mere demands for greater human rights.

Of course I am not stating that this policy will work in every nation, or that it will eradicate all global problems in the world. Yet a “first step” needs to be taken and it is clear that this “step” must focus on the Islamic world in the main and other mainly non-Muslim nations like Myanmar which use persecution.

This may seem idealistic, and of course much research must be done to implement global policies with regards to economic blocs like the European Union and the North American Free Trade Agreement, and other important institutions, like the International Monetary Fund. Yet a policy of greater democratization needs to be implemented and a “New World Order” needs to begin.

Look at the consequences if this is not implemented. This applies to massive poverty, gender persecution, religious persecution, migration, civil wars, regional conflicts, terrorism, and countless other negative problems. Also, this upheaval does not only apply to far away lands, but to all nations, for September 11 proves that world problems are indeed great.

More important, isn’t democracy hollow if it only applies to internal democracy? For why should children, women, religious minorities, and so on, continue to suffer due to Western nations “turning a blind eye?” Surely democracy and universal human rights are more important than trade? So let us hope that political leaders will understand the need to change direction.

If not, then it is essential for voices which are”crying to be heard” in nations like Saudi Arabia to be met with genuine concerns in the West and not based on an economic agenda. If this means that lay people have to call for these demands, then get writing or demonstrating. For “silence” kills and allows persecution to continue.

The world now needs a “New World Order” based on democracy, liberty, freedom, religious freedom, gender equality, and so on. For don’t our fellow humans deserve equality in nations Saudi Arabia and any undemocratic nation, irrespective if they are mainly Muslim, mainly Buddhist, mainly Christian, or whatever? And isn’t democracy tainted when democratic nations openly trade with Saudi Arabia and countless other despotic nations?

Therefore, it is essential that the Obama way, the way of pandering and appeasement, is challenged because the global reality in many mainly Muslim nations is one of persecution or alienation, or both. Senegal, and a few others, are rare democratic nations within the Muslim dominated bloc, therefore, true democracy needs to challenge nations like Saudi Arabia but will this ever happen?
