Amidst of all the fuss over USA involvement in Pakistani affairs and the presence of their security agencies in Pakistan we see denials from Pakistani officials for any such presence and interference but still people are not satisfied with government lies.
Below is an article written by Jeremy Scahill of The Nation on the issue of Blackwater presence in Pakistan.
Blackwater’s Secret War in Pakistan
By Jeremy Scahill
At a covert forward operating base run by the US Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) in the Pakistani port city of Karachi, members of an elite division of Blackwater are at the center of a secret program in which they plan targeted assassinations of suspected Taliban and Al Qaeda operatives, “snatch and grabs” of high-value targets and other sensitive action inside and outside Pakistan, an investigation by The Nation has found. The Blackwater operatives also assist in gathering intelligence and help direct a secret US military drone bombing campaign that runs parallel to the well-documented CIA predator strikes, according to a well-placed source within the US military intelligence apparatus.

Dr. Shaid Masood’s Meray Mutabiq Banned From Dubai–>Pakistan Feudal Party (also known as PPP) government in full swing to confront independent media
It seems that Pakistan Feudal Party (also known as PPP) government in full swing
to confront independent media using all their internal resources and their external
links to put curbs on genuine journalism and news analysis.
It reminds us of Musharraf’s emergency days when similar was done to stop the voices against their mistakes and crimes.
Recent victim of this PPP government’s feudal martial law is “Meray Mutabiq” of Dr. Shahid Masood which has been banned by the Dubai government to go on air from Dubai.
Recently government, agencies, government sponsored media and journalists have started a massive campaign against independent media and the elements and methods used were pretty much same as of Musharraf times even the allegations are similar like being paid by opposition or serving the foreign agenda (We all know our governments have been serving the foreign agenda not the independent media).
We condemn this action of Pakistan and UAE governments and show our full solidarity with independent media.
We expect the genuine journalists and analysts to continue their role which they have played against dictatorship, against emergency,against innocent killings and illegal abductions, against imperialist takeover of our country ,against NRO and corruption and the role to restore the independent judiciary of Pakistan.
Geo’s program ‘Meray Mutabiq’ banned from Dubai
KARACHI: A ban has been imposed on airing of Geo News’ program ‘Meray Mutabiq’ from Dubai.
According to sources, the high government officials of Pakistan exerting pressure on the Dubai government had the airing of the program stopped.
Geo’s administration has said that this step of the government is tantamount to targeting the freedom of expression.
It may be mentioned here that the senior analyst Dr. Shahid Masood was the anchor of ‘Meray Mutabiq’.
In a country where people are not able to find sugar and other daily usage items and where electricity has become a real luxury , the elite political , military ,corrupt business and bureaucratic classes consider themselves above every law of the land and don’t think of themselves answerable to any system of justice.

One of the best minds in history, a great physicists and a Jew himself,Albert Einstein criticized the creation of Israel by Zionist terrorists and called it a possible reason for future catastrophe for Jews.
Many Jews who believed in Orthodox Judaism also oppose the state of Israel and consider Zionism as anti-Semitic.
Below is the letter by Einstein to Shepard Rifkin on Israeli Terrorists.
The letter was written on 10th April after the massacre of Arabs at Deir Yassin by the Stern Gang terrorists or Lohamei Herut Yisrael (LEHI) meaning fighters for the freedom of Israel.
The Stern Gang terrorists were supported by American Friends of the Fighters for the Freedom of Israel and Mr. Shepard Rifkin was the executive director after the UN Partition of Palestine and prior to the creation of Israel in May 1948.
There are people who don’t know the meaning of bilateral peaceful/friendly relationship between states on equal grounds , they only know master-slave relationship or enemy-enemy relationship.
We find them in politics,media,intellectual classes and everywhere just like other people because they represent a mindset, mindset of a slave.
They criticize those who talk about protecting the sovereignty and self respect of the country and nation. They think by talking about protecting the sovereignty means going into baseless wars and talking about self respect means insulting others or breaking all ties with others.
I have seen people who demand the freedom loving people not to go to foreign countries or not to send their children in those countries for studies because freedom loving people oppose the occupation and control of these countries on our country and the reason is same slave mindset about relationships.
They can’t understand that countries promote bilateral people to people, government to government , institution to institution relationships with each other without ceding their sovereignty and backing off from their principle stands.
