Faisal shahzad , the pakistani born , usa citizen who tried to blow bomb at new york times square pleaded guilty.
He described himself as muslim soldier while his attempt as part of answer to usa. Calling it war he didn’t regret trying to target citizen. According to him citizen of usa are not different since they elect governments.
He described his failed attempt as revenge of usa’s occupation on Muslim lands , drone attack on Somalia , pakistan and military operations in afghanistan and Iraq.
He also warned usa that till it continues with its occupation , operations and attacks , more attacks of usa might occur.
Now this so called muslim soldier failed to see that time square is busy street and muslims too might had got killed in bomb would have triggered.
What this so called muslim soldier also failed to see that drone attacks in pakistan are aimed at people who kill fellow muslims like they killed so many in pakistan , itself.
What this so called muslim soldier failed to see is sadam too killed muslims like he claims usa did by invading Iraq.
What this so called muslim soldier also failed to see is so many muslims who live in europe and usa in search of better life in terms of money and quality.
The most important thing which faizal failed to see is global politics and myth that muslims are one nation. Because if that would have been the case , we wont have had so many different countries in arab world , we wont have seen iran-iraq war , we wont have seen iraq invadin kuwait and we wont have seen so many blood sheds for power in history of muslim world.
This post is not about defending usa . What usa is doing is what it thinks its best to serve its interest while what it uses a means for serving its interest are not kids as far as government heads or countries are concerned. They work as per what they think is best for them.
Did usa force pakistan to become launching pad for jihadis fighting against ussr. Pervez now mentions that problems which pakistan faces today are side effects of ussr war.
Did usa force karzai to become president or for that matter iraqi politicians?. They could have refused if they wanted but they thought it to be best for themselves and their country to be part of the plan.
It is high time for people of various faith to realize that religion and politics are two different things. Latter has used former to gain access to power but later is not former.
No faith in the world has stopped people from using other people , murdering others , slaughtering others , no matter what religion preaches.
If people like faizal really want to do good for their community and really curb usa’s interference , the works starts at home. Make sure that people are served , nurtured and made effectiv force which prosper economically , scientifically . Once that is done , rest would fall in place.
Terrorism wont help and it would give bad name to community and innocent , peaceful people would suffer.
