http://www.dawn.com/news/1177105/jud-blames-jewish-lobby-for-yemen-crisis

The kaanspiracy has been revealed - it was the Jooish laaby all along. Ameer Ul Bakri-aashik janaab Hafiss has revealed the revealation. Next he'll lead legions of the faithfool to a holy jihad in Saudi lands. On second thoughts, scratch that. This pig can only send other people to their deaths, he's going to die an old man in his goat shed.

JuD blames ‘Jewish lobby’ for Yemen crisis
BUREAU REPORT — PUBLISHED 42 minutes ago

The war in Yemen is neither a Shia-Sunni dispute nor a conflict between Iran and Saudi Arabia. In fact the US and Jewish lobby are trying to depict the conflict a war between two sectarian groups,” Jamat-ud-Dawa (JuD) chief Hafiz Mohammad Saeed says. — Reuters
“The war in Yemen is neither a Shia-Sunni dispute nor a conflict between Iran and Saudi Arabia. In fact the US and Jewish lobby are trying to depict the conflict a war between two sectarian groups,” Jamat-ud-Dawa (JuD) chief Hafiz Mohammad Saeed says. — Reuters
PESHAWAR: Jamat-ud-Dawa (JuD) chief Hafiz Mohammad Saeed on Sunday accused the US and the ‘Jewish lobby’ of portraying the ongoing crisis in Yemen as a conflict between two major religious schools of thoughts.

“The war in Yemen is neither a Shia-Sunni dispute nor a conflict between Iran and Saudi Arabia. In fact the US and Jewish lobby are trying to depict the conflict a war between two sectarian groups,” he said while speaking at a ‘Pasban Harmain Sharifain Conference’ here on Sunday.

Leaders of ruling Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf, Jamaat-i-Islami, Pakistan Muslim League-N and other religious groups also addressed the gathering.

The JuD organised the event to drum up support for Saudi Arabia which is leading an air assault to crush the uprising in Yemen led by the Houthi rebels.

Without naming Iran, Hafiz Saeed said that a regional power, which was dubbing the US a ‘Great Satan’ and calling for the liberation of Baitul Maqdis from Israel, ‘was going to sign a nuclear treaty with it’. He said that ulema could play major role in educating people about what he said the new game plan in the Middle East.

“We urge this regional power to stay away from making friendship with the US and become part of the Ummah,” he said, and alleged that America and its allies were hatching conspiracies to encircle Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and start proxy war there.

Mr Saeed stated that private militias had been created in Lebanon, Iraq, Syria and Yemen to incite civil war in the Middle East.

The JuD chief alleged that Pentagon had chalked out a strategy to destabilise Muslim world by creating militias in Arab countries.

Hafiz Saeed justified the Saudi-led military action against Houthi rebels in Yemen and said that Abdul Malik, who was leading uprising in Yemen, had “announced that Mecca and Medina were their targets”.

Mr Saeed argued that a legitimate government in Yemen was overthrown and its president had sought help from Saudi Arabia.

He criticised the parliament for passing a resolution opposing deployment of Pakistani troops in Yemen.

On the occasion, Maqsood Salafi, leader of Ahle Hadith (Ehsan Elahi Zaheer group) vowed that volunteers were ready to go to Saudi Arabia to protect the holy places. He alleged that a country in the Middle East was trying to weaken Saudi Arabia with the support of America, in a reference to Iran.

Mr Salafi criticised the parliament and the government for ignoring the request of Saudi Arabia for military support against Houthi rebels. He claimed that joint resolution of the parliament had divided the nation.

Professor Ibrahim of Jamaat-i-Islami said that protection of holy places was part of the faith of every Muslim. He asked the government to ‘abandon policy of appeasement’ and openly give full military support to Saudi Arabia.

Pankajs CCTV had a news show on Xi visit to TSP. $47B was mentioned. More importantly road from Gwadar to Kashgar was mentioned. Bigger ideas of roads to Persian Gulf and beyond. And all this was more secure and quicker than sea route via Malacca.

Did the Chinese take the pakis into confidence before naming it so? If yes, did they willingly agree to the name RANDI. I am sure Pakis are well aware as to what is their status as a rentier state. Maybe, that's why the name is logical and acceptable.

Timed to coincide with the Chinaman's visit,Hafeez S,has yet again on a public platform,flanked by flunkeys of the Paki establishment vented his spleen against India and Israel,calling for a "jihad" against both nations,since they have taken care of "two superpowers".

With such open evil against India fully protected by the Paki nation,why on earth should we continue to maintain diplomatic relations with them? I would urge our new GOI to suspend all diplomatic relations with Pak,all links official and unofficial,until Pak hands over the masterminds of 26/11. Until that happens,we should simply declare Pak a terror producing viral state that the international community should take diplomatic,economic and if need be military action against,imposing sanctions against it,bringing it to heel and behaving like a civilised state before they are lifted. The duplicity of the US cannot be brushed away in the belligerence of the Paki terrorist entity. It behaves as such only because of the support it receives from the US,China and the Saudi-UAE combine. India has to draw the line somewhere and the sooner it ostracizes Pak the better.

Will Pakistan re-join the Emerging Markets? - Oped in DAWN

Last week, I attended the Emerging Markets Summit in Chicago which had simultaneous sessions dedicated to four different parts of the world: Latin America, Africa, India and China/Asia Pacific. But, there was one country which no one even talked about. Any guesses?

(Hint: a country that might very well have been at the center of this Summit had it been taking place in the 1960s instead of 2015 {This is how this lie is perpetrated by repetition} ).

Yes, the answer is indeed Pakistan.

Although Pakistan made it to the list of “Next Eleven” released by Goldman Sachs in 2005, the report cautioned that instability could be a major obstacle to growth in several of these 11 economies, including Pakistan.

Indeed, this year Pakistan has no mention in Bloomberg’s Emerging Markets ranking. In fact, if you go to http://www.emergingmarkets.org and type Pakistan in the search box, you will find that the last time there was even a news update about us was more than six months ago.

Many would rightly point out at how this economic decline was caused by our geopolitical decisions. True, but the important part today is not our starting point and not the fact that we’re not in the top emerging markets list this year.

The important part rather is that we have every ability to be there in the coming years. :D {I am very polite}

Just like Pakistan, Turkey was also adversely affected by the geostrategic imperatives of the great power politics during the Cold War. But once the country started standing up with its real weight, and once the people decided they could, they really did. As a result, in less than a decade, Turkey’s GDP nearly tripled, and imagine, that in 2011, growth rate in Europe was at a mere 1.8 per cent, while that in Turkey was at a high 8.5 per cent .

So where do we stand today? In Africa, a continent of 53 countries, Pakistan only has 15 foreign missions, whereas India has 35. Things get even depressing in Latin America, where we only have 5 foreign missions. In comparison, the neighboring Iran has 11.

Any observer of global politics will point out that in the decades ahead, power will not reside with a few big countries but it will rather be spread across networks of countries working together. Therefore, it is important for Pakistanis to cultivate people-to-people and business relations and develop interests in these nations. Indeed, any country’s leverage in the 21st century will be largely determined by its economic penetration in various parts of the world.

In doing so, we will naturally have to work on both: our ground reality, as well as our international image.

There’s one reality of the need for structural reforms that can largely only be influenced by the government, but today, let’s discuss what we, as people, can do to change the situation.

Many countries in our immediate and distant neighborhood now have companies and brands which are globally known. The question is: why don’t we? Why do we have only one company (Oil & Gas Development) in the list of Forbes Global 2000, whereas Philippines has 8, Chile stands at 9, Thailand at 16 and India at 56?

Less ideology, more economics

Maybe it’s time to think less in terms of personal family businesses and more in terms of companies that can expand even more? Maybe, it’s time to think big and strategic.

But thinking big doesn’t necessarily mean that great ideas can only come from large businesses. Indeed, a successful economy has to be complemented with startups, which are, many times, the best sources of ideas.

One such example of promoting innovative and entrepreneurial environment within Pakistan are efforts of Professor Kashif Khan of Iqra University Islamabad, who, over the last few years, has developed numerous teams to improve Pakistan’s ranking in GEW (Global Entrepreneurship Week).

As for the image part, we will need to break out of the vicious cycle of pessimism and re-brand ourselves. Obstacles will have to be converted into opportunities. For example, both as a matter of image and as a matter of ground reality, why don’t we embark on a mission to convert our “youth bulge” into “Pakistan: A Country of the Youth” or say, “Pakistan: The Most Youthful Country”?

Such rebranding and positive slogans have the power to change national discourses. For instance, just look at the contribution of “Malaysia, Truly Asia” in attracting the number of tourists into that country.

An improvement in our national image will not only change perceptions of Pakistanis in the eyes of the global audience, but it will also have a positive effect on the markets. We all know that investors tend to have a herd mentality. Thus, a few good and successful stories can go much beyond in terms of attracting tremendous more investment as a domino effect.

Perhaps it’s time to make the global investors realise that a market of 200 million people is too significant to be ignored. But for that to happen, the positive narrative construction will have to begin at home.

I am confident that the day we decide we can, we will.

After 68 long years, the atami taquat is finally going to realize its destiny as Eleven Dingdong comes on a destiny shaping visit. A nation which has had so many destiny shaping moments is indeed destined for glory.

http://nation.com.pk/national/20-Apr-2015/xi-arrives-today-on-destiny-shaping-visit

I recall reading some years back that some other Emperor's aircraft got an escort of 4 JF-17s - now they have doubled the escorts. I don't think any other nation puts out its air-force to 'escort' a visiting head of state - but I could be wrong.

Eleven also gets Nishan-e-Bakistan for contributions to the Bakistani nation. Baniya Hindus didn't give Bharat Ratna to Obama - so a major diplomatic coup for Bakis as well. Incidentally, Who and Lee have also been awarded this 'honour'. Another illustrious recipient is Richard Nixon - so Eleven has august company. Recipients of the award are entitled to write NPk in-front of their names, which seems appropriate. Meanwhile, the wikipedia page on the NPk shows the changing clients of the escorts - in the 1960s, 2 US Presidents and the Queen got the Napaak award. From 1999 to now, it is the Emperor of China, the Ottoman Sultan and the Emirs of Saudi Arabia and Qatar.


Xi arrives today on destiny-shaping visit
| A plethora of agreements, MoUs to be signed | Chinese envoy says focus to be on energy, transport infrastructure, agriculture, finance, tourism, poverty alleviation

ISLAMABAD - Chinese President Xi Jinping arrives today (Monday) on a two-day state visit which is his first foreign visit this year and the first state visit by a Chinese President to Pakistan in nine years.
The main roads of the federal capital and all important state buildings, including the Parliament House and the PM House, have been decorated with lights and the flags of China and Pakistan.
A fleet of eight JF-17 Thunder jets will receive the President of People’s Republic of China as his plane enters the Pakistani airspace and escort him to Islamabad airport. A 21-gun salute will be presented to the honorable guest on his landing at the airport.
President Xi Jinping will be received by PM Nawaz, President Mamnoon Hussain and the three services chiefs amongst other officials upon arrival.
President Xi Jinping will meet President Mamnoon Hussain to discuss matters of mutual cooperation whereas the guest will also hold official talks with Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and the services chiefs. A meeting will also be held today with politicians from almost all major parties.
President Xi will address the joint session of the parliament in Islamabad tomorrow to share his views over Pak-China friendship and other issues. He will be conferred the highest civil award Nishan-e-Pakistan. Security has been tightened in the federal capital.
Pakistan and China will sign a number of important agreements and MoUs regarding energy conservation, infrastructure development, economy and communication enhancement.
Meanwhile, Chinese Ambassador to Pakistan Sun Weidong in an interview with APP Sunday said Islamabad will get a big boost in efforts to meet its energy shortfall, improve infrastructure and set up industrial parks with the help of Beijing.
“No matter how the international and domestic situations changed, China-Pakistan relationship has always been moving forward,” he said. He said the leadership of the two countries, apart from discussing all aspects of their multifaceted ties, would also focus on energy, transport infrastructure, agriculture, finance, tourism, poverty alleviation and cultural exchanges.
The ambassador described China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) as an important part of the Silk Road Economic Belt and the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road that would run through Asia, Europe and Africa. It would “be a driving force for common development in the region” he said and added that the main purpose was to achieve connectivity of policies, facilities, trade, financial services and people.
“The link would connect vibrant East Asia economic circle at one end and develop European economic circle at the other,” he said and pointed out that it was not a solo initiative by China, “but a symphony performed by all relevant countries.”
He was responding to a question whether he believed that the CPEC was a ‘fate changer’ for Pakistan and the region.
The ambassador said the CPEC was now gradually entering into implementation stage and mentioned various projects already at different stages.
He said the first phase of Bahawalpur 100MW solar power project had been completed, while the second phase of 900MW solar project would be launched soon. Dawood 50MW and Sachal 50MW wind farms would have ground-breaking in near future, while agreement on transmission lines from Matiari to Lahore and Matiari to Faisalabad was expected to be signed soon.
Shahbaz Sharif’s role lauded
During various meetings with Punjab Chief Minister Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif, heads of Chinese development agencies, investment companies, banks and financial institutions paid rich tributes to his services for giving a practical shape to mutual cooperation and promotion of Pak-China friendship. According to Chinese guests, the efforts of Shahbaz Sharif regarding investment in Punjab, announcement of economic corridor for Pakistan and making the visit of the Chinese President possible are commendable.

He said that China stuck to road of peaceful development aimed at bringing peace and prosperity to its neighbourhood through its development.

“China will not pursue hegemony and the old way of ‘the big bullying the small’. China will unswervingly pursue peaceful means in resolving disputes in safeguarding its sovereignty and territorial integrity.”
The ambassador said that China was building new type of international relations - meant to replace confrontation with cooperation and replace exclusiveness with win-win cooperation.
“China rejects the practice of zero-sum game and the winner-takes-all approach.”
Citing China’s position on Afghanistan, he said it always supported ‘Afghan-led and Afghan-owned’ reconciliation process and looked forward to a unified, stable, developing and friendly Afghanistan.
The friendship that used to be described as higher than mountains, deeper than oceans, he said, was now called by the young Chinese as Iron Pak.
The ambassador said the two countries had supported each other in hard times.

From Hussain Haqqani in WSJ today

"The Obama administration’s decision this month to sell almost $1 billion in U.S.-made attack helicopters, missiles and other equipment to Pakistan will fuel conflict in South Asia without fulfilling the objective of helping the country fight Islamist extremists. Pakistan’s failure to tackle its jihadist challenge is not the result of a lack of arms but reflects an absence of will. Unless Pakistan changes its worldview, American weapons will end up being used to fight or menace India and perceived domestic enemies instead of being deployed against jihadists.

For all that, I will still bat for anything that might help break barriers between ordinary Indians and Pakistanis. Even if it means watching bad TV plays.

Finance Minister Dar rules out Pakistanis’ expulsion from Gulf - DAWN
Pakis­tan’s position on the Yemen conflict will not lead to the expulsion of Pakistani workers from the Middle East, says Finance Minister Ishaq Dar.

The minister told a news briefing in Washington that Pakistan and Saudi Arabia had signed a military protocol in 1982, which entitles the kingdom to seek Pakistani troops.

“But this agreement was for a different purpose and it is not in national interests to talk about it,” he said.{What a country this Pakistan ! Enters into a deal with another country but cannot talk about it. Cannot conduct an open court trial of terrorists because of 'sensitivity'. Secretly allows the Americans to fly drones from its airbases and attack its own citizens but vehemently opposes this openly. Etc. etc.}

“God forbid, we do not want to create the impression that we are not with Saudi Arabia. I am a sinner but I am willing to die defending the two holy mosques.”

A journalist reminded him that the largest contributor to foreign exchange reserves were overseas Pakistanis who sent a record $13.3 billion in last nine months. But some Arab countries were threatening to expel those workers because of Pakistan’s refusal to send troops to Saudi Arabia.

“I am almost sure that we will not face this situation,” said Mr Dar. “The parliamentary resolution on Yemen was misunderstood in some Arab countries but we have clarified our position. {OK, you have clarified, but did they accept that ?}

He said Pakistan had a particularly close relationship with Saudi Arabia and wanted to retain those ties.

“Pakistan will stand shoulder to shoulder with Saudi Arabia in the event of a threat to its territorial integrity,” he said. “We have condemned the Houthis and support the restoration of President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi. No armed group should be allowed to oust a government.” :rotfl:

The cult of Pakistani TV soaps: Forget the hype, most of them are crap

Pakistanis themselves are slightly intrigued and mystified by the runaway success of their dramas in India. Indeed, it is a topic of some interesting debate on Pakistani social media sites. :roll:

Posing the question, “What has made these dramas so popular?”, one blogger writes, “Well the answer according to Indians themselves is simplicity, no over-acting, no loud makeup and strong female protagonists. Our shows don’t prolong themselves through ridiculous plot twists like Reincarnations, changelings and dead spouses. Also unlike Indian dramas there isn’t an overemphasis on religion which one Indian critic mocked as ‘A puja every 3 episodes’! :roll:

On Gwadar as an alternative to Malacca in times of conflict .... The KKH has one key weakness that can be exploited during conflict.

I am posting the first link that came up ... I could dig up a more reputed site but the point I am trying to make is well known.
https://www.chinadialogue.net/article/4 ... n-paradise
Geologists say that the mountains around Attabad are very unstable due to erosion and weathering processes, seismic activity, steep terrain, snow melt, rainfall and irrigation for agriculture, and sediments carried by glacial melt into rivers. The 6.3-magnitude earthquake that struck Kashmir’s Astore Valley in 2002 caused cracks to emerge on the back-slopes of the mountains surrounding Attabad, and is believed to be one of the key triggers of the landslide.

A second major displacement was observed in 2004, when the existing cracks extended into the cultivated fields and populated areas of Attabad and the mountains slopes became unstable and prone to landslides. The 7.6-magnitude earthquake that struck Kashmir in 2005 further accelerated the slope movement and networks of cracks destroyed several houses.

The Geological Survey of Pakistan (GSP), the country’s central engineering agency, conducted a risk analysis of the area in August 2009, warning in their report: “a fault is passing through the affected area having a north-south direction and crossing the river. A huge landslide has developed across the river. This landslide is associated with the fault. The bed rock is highly fractured, sheared and jointed due to the tectonic activity in the area.”

The experts warned of rockslides and said mountain slopes had become unstable in many places, further widening fissures and increasing the occurrence of landslides. Water from rain, snow melt and irrigation collected in fissures, accelerating erosion processes and greatly increasing the vulnerability of already unstable mountain slopes. On the basis of these studies, Attabad was declared a high-hazard area. The GSP suggested that local authorities evacuate residents from the vulnerable area and monitor hazards during the winter and snow melt season.

As predicted, on January 4, 2010, a huge landslide occurred, destroying the village of Attabad, damming the Hunza River and affecting 25,000 people in the 21 villages upstream. With roads still blocked, these communities remain cut off from the rest of Pakistan today.
..................
On top of other damage, the landslide blocked the Karakoram Highway, a vital trade link to China, cutting off 25,000 people in upper Hunza Valley. To date, the debris has destroyed an almost three-kilometre stretch of the highway and 20 kilometres of road – including a 250-metre long strategic bridge – submerged by the lake.

People in the upper Hunza Valley are still braving these problems, and no solution is in sight. The landslide has caused irreparable loss to the area, submerged cultivable lands, eroded great parts of the Karakoram Highway and squeezed the flow of tourists. In short, economic activities have ground to a halt.
..................
The cheaper project involves digging a six-kilometre long tunnel, six high-rise bridges and 70 small bridges and will take six years to complete: clearly a tall order for a country like Pakistan with its struggling economy and limited expertise. In June 2011, the federal government allocated a small sum of US$1.7 million (10.8 million yuan) to realign the Karakorum Highway and the barrier lake. But the speed of work has been painfully slow and to date only 10% of the work has been completed.

If I was into war planning I would map out all the steepest terrain, overhangs, faults, fissures, bridges, tunnels, etc along the highway and the river.

Then narrow down field to those prone to another Attabad with a little human intervention. Prepare plans to drop a few bunker busters into these fissures causing massive landslides or take out a few of the high-rise bridges. Even if one succeed with one landslide or a bridge the KKH would be disabled for at least a couple of years.

OTOH, KKH & Economic corridor projects makes perfect sense as part of an economic plan for the up-liftment of Xinjiang and Tibet. Bakistan is a big market at least for basic stuff. The Chinese would open factories in Xinjiang, take raw material from AFPAK and flood the AFPAK market with Chinese goods over and above what they are doing now.

I think the Bakis are inviting Britshit v2.0 (Chinese version) just to thumb their nose at India.

Gas company chief ordered to sign LNG deal or pack up
ISLAMABAD: In dramatic circumstances, three public sector stakeholders of liquefied natural gas (LNG) have ‘initialled’ a tripartite agreement to facilitate import of the commodity through back-to-back guarantees amid resistance by their managements.

This comes at a time when the first encashment of $50 million guarantee becomes due in a couple of days because of failure of the government side to arrange imported LNG in time for re-gasification and transmission into the national network through the Engro terminal at Port Qasim.

According to sources, LNG has not been arranged so far and the Engro terminal has been processing nothing since April 16.

KKH is easier to take out in a way (or for that matter any border infrastructure in mountainous terrain is easy to take with few precision missiles / smart bombs). We also have similar such bottlenecks in both J&K and near chicken's neck area.. probably not as bad as KKH.

That said, this investment is a win-win for Cheen and desperate straw for sinking Pukis to catch on to.

By all accounts Pukis are in their worst state right now. It is time to kick them hard. I don't know how long we would have to wait to get such a good opportunity in the future. The question is are we strong enough to administer a kick now? Kick can be in multiple forms - not necessarily through overt means.

There are deep structural and systemic problems with the pukis that will make them only as strong as their four father-pimps would make them.

Bakis will only grow weaker, so long as they are never given a reason to unite and we protect ourselves from my mischief for sometime.


If Modi sarkar's policy is continued for a decade or two, then Bakis and their father-pimps have absolutely no chance of doing much damage.

Joint Pakistan-China think tank launched
According to a press statement issued by the Islamabad office of Pakistan China Institute, the newly-formed think tank “Research and Development International (RANDI)”, :rotfl: :rotfl: will have two co-chairpersons; Madame Zhao Baige, former minister and currently member of parliament and vice chairperson of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the National People’s Congress, and Senator Mushahid Hussain.


Till I saw this news I coudn't understand why #RANDI is trending and why Rana Ayyub is fuming.

Never heard of Lawn Cloth?

"Lawn cloth or lawn is a plain weave textile, originally of linen but now chiefly cotton. Lawn is designed using fine, high count yarns, which results in a silky, untextured feel. The fabric is made using either combed or carded yarns."

Xi visit to Pakistan: Strategic implications for India

Good Article !

QUOTE:
There is a deeply held consensus in Delhi that Beijing has provided opaque Weapons of Mass Destruction (nuclear weapons and missiles) support to Pakistan and consistently chosen to either ignore or tacitly endorse Rawalpindi’s investment in terror against India as a tool of state policy. This is unsustainable and Beijing’s silence over the release of 26/11 mastermind Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi is illustrative of China and terrorism.

The first project of China's 40-billion-USD Silk Road Fund for investment in the Belt and Road initiative was unveiled on Monday during Chinese President Xi Jinping's state visit to Pakistan.

The fund will inject capital in China Three Gorges South Asia Investment Ltd, a subsidiary of the China Three Gorges Corp, to develop Pakistan's Karot hydropower project and other clean-energy projects, according to a joint statement issued by the two countries.

It is the fund's first investment since its establishment in December.
