Dear brothers and sisters,

اسلام علیکم
Peace be upon you

1. US, India, Israel backing Mehsud
He is an ally of India…they are using him against Pakistan so we never ever forgive him!!!

“A former close aide to Taliban chief Baitullah Mehsud has said the US, India and Israel are behind the Taliban commander, who he termed the biggest enemy of Islam, Dunya News reported.”

Mehsud responsible for terrorism
“Taliban commander Qari Zainuddin Mehsud has said he is not in favour of attacks against the Pakistan government and blames Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) chief Baitullah Mehsud for all terrorist acts in the country.”

2. Tribesmen on their own
Villagers are losing their patience. This is the ideal opportunity to take action and push them back. This will certainly discourage the Taliban fighters.

“Over 2,500 villagers are up in arms against 200 dreaded Taliban militants in the inaccessible mountain terrain of Dhog Dara, 25 kilometres northwest of Dir in Upper Dir.”

3. Clinton urges better US-India-Pakistan co-operation
This time this co-operation should be on equal level because now Pakistan can’t trust both India and the US

“Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton called Wednesday for greater counterterrorism co-operation between the United States, India and Pakistan and said she would visit India next month as the Obama administration moves to strengthen ties with New Delhi.”

4. We need trade, not aid, says President Zardari
At last our President spoke with little sense but no one can believe this statement of President Sahib because few days back Shah Mehmood Qureshi asked for aid. All this shows the contradictory attitude of our government in not having the determination to solve the problems of Pakistan

“President Asif Ali Zardari said Wednesday he hoped to secure better access to European markets rather than more aid, ahead of a landmark EU-Pakistan summit focused in part on trade.”

5. Captain Bilal Zafar Shaheed
“Think not of those who are slain in Allah’s way as dead. Nay, they live, finding their sustenance in the presence of their Lord; they rejoice in the bounty provided by Allah. And with regard to those left behind, who have not yet joined them (in their bliss), the (martyr’s) glory in the fact that on them is no fear, nor have they (cause to) grieve.”
Al-Quran (3: 169-170)
