ISRAEL OR HEZBOLLAH:
WHO IS IN DANGER?
By almost total destruction of Lebanon and Gaza and massacre of
innocent people in its pursuit of Hezbollah and Hamas, will Israel achieve
its goal? Nay. Never. This time Israel has committed the gravest mistake
and would pay a very heavy price. It is indeed a stupidity and a suicide.
of finding a permanent political solution acceptable to all, which always
is possible and badly needed but never seriously considered due to various
reasons and vested interests, the United States particularly and supported
by allies is adding fuel to the fire by fully backing and practically
helping Israel in the process of destruction. This US and its allies are
doing without any sensible understanding and good logic.
MAP: The Middle East Road Map is
becoming a Ruin Map for the region, particularly Israel, thanks to
American policymakers of Bush Lobby and not the nice American people.
Everybody now knows that Israel is fighting THIS WAR for vested
interests of the US and not for its existence or people. The vested
interests include routes, resources and rule. Supremacy is their dream.
all sovereign states, Israel too has every right to exist, progress and
prosper and now almost all understand and accept this reality but wrong
policies and decisions have landed it in a quicksand and have now
endangered its own existence and the people. It is the innocent people of
the whole region who are the worst sufferers. All warring parties leave
them alone and let them live and die in PEACE.
Israel and its supporters claim but can they really destroy
Hezbollah and Hamas? This time the Israeli policymakers, political and
military experts have made a great blunder and have put all innocent
Israelis in deep trouble. Now the Israelis cannot sleep in peace and would
see death in the shape of rockets in their dreams The war Israel has
started will continue for long and would prove disastrous for Israel
itself and beneficial in all ways for Hezbollah and Hamas. Israel has made
them heroes overnight.
would Iran and Syria intervene and get involved in THIS DIRTY WAR?
The Hezbollah, Hamas and the people are there in the front and everywhere
to fight on their behalf. Iran and Syria have thrown the ball in the court
of Israel and the US and watching the situation from a distant.
TRAPPED: Israel, pushed by the US, has been trapped badly. This
time it is the people and not rulers and armies versus Israel. It is now
Israel versus people of the Muslim World, because of brutal killing of
innocent people. Like the Lebanese Government, the power of the people
would render rulers of Muslim countries too, particularly poodles,
powerless and helpless. This is what is seen and is happening.
world is heading towards a terrible war and a great disaster. Some even
say it is the beginning of the Third World War. With ceasefire, Israel can
be stopped but who is going to stop the Hezbollah, Hamas, people and the
storm brewing? All groups including Al-Qaida have united. Now their
strength will increase tremendously and they would become extremely
powerful and difficult for Israel and its allies to handle. Even Weapons
of Mass Destruction (WMD) would fail to stop or destroy them. Israel, US
and allies will have to kill millions to only stop them but still cannot
Hezbollah, Hamas and Al-Qaida are all part of the people and not the army.
They are well organized and found everywhere in the world. Thanks to US
and Israel, they have gained tremendous sympathy, trust and confidence of
the people. To crush them, Israel and US will have to finish people of the
Muslim World. This is perhaps what Israel is doing right now with mass
destruction of Lebanon and Gaza and massacre of people including women,
children and elderly. Even UN observers have not been spared.
UNLEASHED: At present Israel has unleashed terror against the
innocent people of Lebanon and Gaza. With destruction it boasts of
successes but has failed to dislocate and destroy Hezbollah and Hamas. It
has only terrified the innocent people and made them enemies, more
dangerous than any armies of the world. Hezbollah too are bombarding
Israel with rockets and missiles and killing people.
are blaming each other for terrorism and trying to crush each other. For
the warring parties everything is fair. In their fight, the innocent
people are caught and being crushed. This is totally unfair and must be
stopped immediately at any cost. The madness of war must end before it is
too late and the situation takes a very ugly turn.
trying to end the conflict, the US has now started pushing Israel to
punish Syria for supporting Hezbollah. For how long can Syria and Iran
avoid the conflict? Very soon they too would be pulled into the war.
critical and confusing situation, how can efforts be made for a permanent
peace in the region through diplomacy? It seems impossible. Preparations
are being made for a big and long war and not peace. Destruction of the
Middle East region is inevitable, unless something dramatic and
charismatic happens. At any cost people must not support terrorism in any
shape. There is vast difference between freedom fighters and terrorists.
People must judge and understand this difference before blindly supporting
WORRIED: Muslims living in the Western and European countries
are very much worried and disturbed by the developing and the
deteriorating situation. They are directly affected and face serious
consequences. The fallout is detrimental. Although the government keeps a
strict watch to ensure full rights, equality and protection, still the
fallout affects both the policies and the people and promotes hatred and
Muslims particularly understand this very well and prefer to live and work
together with all the people. They remain busy in connecting communities
and people in order to become an important part of the society, system and
mainstream. This way they try to win the trust and confidence of all
others and achieve success and progress with their help, support and
a very difficult job and a tough challenge, community members are educated
through proper awareness to understand the society, system and the people.
This way the issues of hatred, racism and discrimination could be
HUMANITY: Efforts are also made to check and counter
exploitation and brainwashing of people in the name of religion, culture
and country. People are told to always give top priority and importance to
promotion and respect of humanity. This is what the fanatics and
extremists lack due to wrong training and negative teaching. By promoting
humanity we can connect people and communities.
religious institutions need to be streamlined and equipped with properly
trained staff, system and syllabus. The Holy Quran never teaches wrong but
exploiters and illiterates teach Holy Quran the wrong way and mislead the
people. They don’t understand the Holy Quran properly, due to lack of
study and research, but compel the people to understand and accept their
poor knowledge and wrong messages.
these elements have converted most of the religious institutions into
collection centers with very limited religious activities. These
institutions are built with donations of the people but when completed
become property of the lobby occupying it. Policies need to be formulated
to free these institutions from exploiters and lobbies and make them
really functional, effective and productive. Accountability of all
activities must be made to keep them proper and clean.
this is a universal problem, I have been witnessing this in Canada since
April, 1999. Canada has given me a lot. Both the people and the government
have always supported me. I am taking full advantage of freedom of
expression and writing freely and fiercely. I became Veteran Active Member
(VAM) of the Toronto Press Club and member of The Ontario Club in 1999
with support and recommendation of Ed Patrick, President of the TPC.
Claude Isaac, a senior staff of The Ontario Club, keeps encouraging me. He
puts most of my articles on the Notice Board for all to read.
In 2002, I met Thomas Saras, President of the National Ethnic Press
& Media Council of Canada (NEPMCC). He impressed me a lot. Even when I
was not a member, my almost every article was posted on the site www.nepmcc.ca.
In the editorial section, over 90 per cent articles are mine. Now I am a
member and can proudly claim that I am the only journalist in Canada whose
so many articles have been posted in such an important website like NEPMCC.
This is an honour for Pakistan and me. Thank you Thomas Saras, for this
honour and for your support and encouragement.
in 2002, I met Shahid Hashmi, Chairman of Canpak Chamber of Commerce. He
introduced me to many people and supported me greatly. The team of trio,
Shahid Hashmi, Javed Zaheer and Hameeduddin, Publisher and Chief Editor of
Awaz, became popular in the circle and community.
Shahid Hashmi is highly
respected and well connected with people and communities. I found him
positive, sincere and different from many others. Despite heated arguments
on issues and some differences, we remain close to each other. Although
there is no compromise on principles, yet for the cause we are united.
Fortunately, the list of my friends and supporters is very long.
They all are a great source of inspiration, help and support for me. My
mailing list has over 2000 email addresses, mostly of media, distinguished
officials and personalities, reputed and recognized organizations. In
short, mostly people who matter and help others.
OF SCIENTOLOGY: Nicole Crellin, Director in the Church of
Scientology, Toronto, Canada, is very friendly, supportive and
cooperative. She never forgets me and always invites Hameeduddin and me in
all her events. Her organization is serving and contributing tremendously
in almost all fields by propagating, teaching and implementing the
revolutionary ideas and works of L. Ron Hubbard, the founder, throughout
the world and in a well organized and effective manner.
performance and results are simply amazing.
I jokingly asked her: “Have you people left any field uncovered?
What about cleaning politics and rehabilitating politicians? In many ways
they are doing this challenging work as well and achieving success.
Determination, interaction and implementation are their secrets of
No doubt comments of Prime Minister Stephen Harper and policies of
the Conservative Government are termed very disturbing for the Muslims.
Still the approach and response of Muslims must always remain positive and
constructive. Only exploiters would benefit from emotional reaction.
Muslims are very much protected and respected in Canada. They proudly call
themselves Canadians and want to live and serve as such.
Examples are many. People like
Shahid Hashmi keep organizing functions. The Canpak Chamber of Commerce
celebrated on July 9, 2006, Canada Day in a befitting manner. A large
number of dignitaries including Ghalib Iqbal, Consul General of Pakistan
in Toronto, who is very popular and active in the community, Jim
Karygiannis, MP, Joe Volpe, MP, and people from all walks of lives
participated. The World Cup
Football Final was on that day and big screen arrangement was made for the
audience. People enjoyed both the final and the celebration. The hall was
full. The event included speeches, dances, documentaries on cancer support
and campaign for homeless, etc.
EXPRESS: On July 8, 2006, Urdu newspaper Weekly Canada Express
celebrated its first anniversary and Canada Day. This function too was
participated by distinguished personalities and a large number of people.
Qaiser Sagheer of Canada Express is a young and energetic journalist. He
focuses on local coverages.
Another very prominent and
popular figure is Khalid Usman, Councillor of Markham. He is known as
`King Fundraiser’. Within hours he can collect thousands. This he does
because he is well respected and enjoys trust and confidence of the
people. He is again contesting for the councillor election from Markham,
faces a tough challenge this time but still fully confident of support of
the people and his victory.
TRADITION: All these activities prove and show that the
Muslim community is well protected and promoted in Canada. For stability
and success, all one has to do is to become an active member of the
society and important part of the system and mainstream. Canada not only
welcomes all with open arms but takes care as well. This is the Canadian
tradition and we must become part of this tradition.
