The Zionist hoax of “peace process” in Palestine

September 30, 2016

Russian think tank Katehon’s journalist Anastasia Zhukova  interviewed me last week per telephone. The following is her summary of the interview:

The Palestinian Authority (PA) has been under the virtual control of Israel and its authority limited to the West Bank. It has no control over the Gaza Strip. The Palestinian Authority’s nominal president Mahmoud Abbas can operate only in the West Bank. However, most of the West Bank has been colonised and Israel has established its illegal settlements all over the place, leaving only a few areas for the Palestinians.

The Palestinian Authority was put in place in 1994 by Israel because after the Oslo Accords of 1993, the Zionists came up with the idea of creating an administrative body in the Israeli-occupied West Bank which could carry out its work on behalf of Israel. In such an arrangement, the role of the Palestinian Authority was no more than doing its work on behalf of the occupying power. At first, Yasser Arafat led the Palestinian Authority. Despite being an experienced man, he believed in the sincerity of the Israeli leaders. But he was gravely mistaken. Israel had no intention of giving up the occupied territories.

Then, in Israel ultra-right wing people, including Ariel Sharon and Benjamin Netanyahu, came to power. They had a huge number of operators to spread propaganda about the “peace process”. But there was no peace process. The whole thing was nothing but a big hoax.

No doubt, the rulers of Israel have consistently followed their plans for the expansion of Israel; they have not let anyone or anything come in their way. They have pursued their expansion by illegal settlements in the occupied territories. In doing this, the Zionists have not compromised with anyone. In essence, the Zionist mantra for settlements is that the whole of Palestine is their land, which God had given to them!

The United States and Israel have close relations. The Zionists were able to assert their control over the American political establishment through Israeli lobby and numerous Zionist associations in the U.S. As we can see, the American government is incapable of going against the Zionist interests. The U.S. rulers have to follow the commands of the Israeli rulers.

The American mass media have great power in the world, and in this it is the Zionists who exert enormous control over the mainstream media. They have an efficient propaganda machine which operates not only in in the US but also in Europe.

Despite all the heavy odds, some people have stood against the historical injustices inflicted on the people of Palestine, who have been trying to tell the truth about Israel’s policies against the Palestinians. These people work hard to tell the facts and expose the Zionist lies and deception.

India, the Kashmir Conflict and the danger of war

September 24, 2016

Nasir Khan, September 24, 2016

India is a big military power and it uses its military power to keep Kashmir under its colonial possession.

Indian rulers have shown no interest whatsoever in finding a workable solution to the seven-decade-old conflict about the State of Jammu and Kashmir. It seems they will continue the same old policy of playing for time and hope that the demands of the Kashmiris for freedom will die down. That is a false hope.
Under some flimsy pretext, India may even start a war against Pakistan to divert the world attention from its barbaric atrocities in Kashmir.

But any war between the two nuclear powers – India and Pakistan – is fraught with great dangers for the people of the two countries and the region. A conventional war may soon become a nuclear war and therein lies the greatest danger to the people of India and Pakistan.

 

 

Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11

September 11, 2016

Nasir Khan,  September 11, 2016


If we leave aside many questions around the falling of the Twin Towers and the mysterious collapse of the 47-storey 7 World Trade Center Tower on September 11, 2001, one thing is certain: Who brought these towers down and by whatever means were not Iraqis or President Saddam Hussain of Iraq. That much is well known and remains unquestioned.
The Bush administration did not accuse Iraqis of being involved in 9/11 in any way either. So, why did President Bush invade Iraq and unleashed a destructive war of aggression in which hundreds of thousands of Iraqis were killed and this once-rich and prosperous country reduced to shambles?

Kashmiris and Pashtoons – Reply to a commentator

Nasir Khan, September 4, 2016

.
In response to my today’s post “Indian forces’ atrocities and murders in Kashmir continue” in a Facebook group (“Daring Facts”) one Mr Jaffar Safi wrote a comment. I am producing his comment, which was not directly related to my post but I replied to him where I tried to clarify some questions he had raised that may be of general interest to my readers and FB friends:

Jaffar Safi wrote: But Nasir Khan you must know the fact…within 40 years at least 70 thousands kishmiris martaryed by the indian forces and the whole world is crying in general and pakistani people in particular…but within 7 years only in Pashtoon belt round about 80 thousands plus innocent people were killed within the jurisdiction of pakistan …but we did not see even a single protest in azad kashmir and even in the rest of provices of pakistan …even you did not write a word of condolence….NASIR KHAN is it parity or disparity equality or inequility or justice or injustice with our people?

Nasir Khan replied: Jaffar Safi – What happens in Pakistan or has happened in Pakistan is not the theme of my brief piece on the ongoing killings of the people of Kashmir. That’s the first thing to keep in mind. However, the killing of Pashtoon that you refer to is part of the political power struggles within Pakistan.

Pakistani rulers have used Islam for their political ends and exploited this religion to the full in every conceivable way. They used the same Pashtoon fighters to wreak havoc in Afghanistan in the 1980s and were instrumental in the holy war as paid- and misguided mercenaries of USA, Saudi Arabia and other reactionary powers that were involved in destabilising Afghanistan to destroy the Afghan Revolution.

After destroying the Socialist rule and killing the Afghan President Najibullah the same Pashtoon fighters became the soldiers of Allah under the name of the ‘Taliban’ and started killing innocent Pakistanis, targeting schools and religious and ethnic minorities. It was at that juncture that the Pakistani army took major military offensive against the militants and their hideouts. Of course, many innocent people also died as a result of military operations and millions fled from their homes and sought refuge in other places. This I don’t deny or condone. The so-called Taliban and their Islamist backers are still a festering sore in the body-politic of Pakistan.

Secondly, you mention only the plight of the Pashtoons under the military operations. But you don’t say what the same army has been doing and is still doing in Baluchistan. How have thousands of people been killed or “disappeared” there? A precarious situation in Sindh prevails where the suppression of the national demands of the Sindhis have been the part of the oppressive policies of the Pakistani rulers. All provinces of Pakistan in varying degrees have grievances, not only the Pashtoons of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province.

You raise a direct question about me in this. For me that was quite strange to read. As an ordinary political activist I have opposed and written against the policies followed by Pakistani rulers and their mercenary army for decades. Since the internet became available for general use, I have used different websites to expose the policies and violations of human rights of people in Pakistan and other places around the world. By the way, I have not lived in Pakistan for more than half a century. All I know about Pakistan is from some general news in English media in the West. However, I appreciate that Pakistanis who live in Pakistan and know the daily events and the role of the army against the Pakistani people write and publicise as much as they can. It is their responsibility to do their work.

At the same time, I have seen very little support amongst my Pakistani Facebook friends or those who are members of Facebook groups for the Kashmiris who are under Indian military occupation. That shows clearly the level of political consciousness such Pakistanis are able to display. This is my first and last response to you. My best wishes to you if you do any constructive work.
