Closing Thought–02Nov18

All this talk these days about extremist groups…they have been all over the news for several years now…….not just in the US nope even Pakistan is having a problem with extremist groups (go figure)….and the US has told Pakistan that it needs to ban such groups…..

The US has urged Pakistan to immediately enact a legislation that formally ban extremist religious groups, a media report said on Thursday.

The US’ suggestion on Wednesday followed a decision announced last week for ending a ban on Mumbai terror attack mastermind Hafiz Saeed’s Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) and the Falah-i-Insaniyat Foundation (FIF), which Washington designates as terrorist groups, the Dawn report said.

The Pakistani media late last month had reported that the two outfits, that manage a large charity network with the help of thousands of volunteers, temporarily came off the list of banned outfits in Islamabad because the ordinance that proscribed them under a UN resolution had lapsed.

The Imran Khan government is working on a proposal to extend the ban.

Does anyone have an example of extreme arrogance?

Yep the US telling Pakistan to ban extremist groups…..and yet allows  the same types free rein in our government…..true the the Constitution protects these groups but telling another country what to do is just arrogant.

But then I am sure that it is different in some way…..I am just having a hard time finding the difference.

  1. I doubt the Pakistanis will take any notice of such ‘urging’. They have enough other problems of their own to deal with, without concerning themselves over what America wants.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. The most extremist group in the United States right now is the American Left Wing but it is crumbling now as sure as the Soviet Union ever crumbled and barring some kind of miracle or some kind of national disaster, it will essentially become totally impotent within a couple of years from now. We are headed toward a new age of rightist nationalism and I don’t believe anything will stem the tide.

    1. The Left that you see is nothing but a bunch of spineless Dems…the only thing that they are extreme about is…..extremely gutless….and do not get me started on what I think of what passes for the conservs these days….chuq
